  • Another thing you can try, is using two different colored eyeliners. In the pictures below I opted for blue and gold liners.

  • If you want to add eyeshadow, try neutral colors so the main emphasis remains on the bright eyeliner. Nice eyeshadows which work well with most colors are gold, taupe, pearl and similar shades. Of course, if your going for a super bright look, pack on the color!

  • If you prefer black liner on your top lid, you can wear colored eyeliner on the bottom lid instead just like the picture below.

Regardless of how you choose to wear colored eyeliner, don’t forget to coat your lashes with mascara. To intensify the look, add false lashes. This pretty trend can be worn many ways as this post shows, and it’s a fun and easy way to add some color to your look.
