  • A nice way to wear colored eyeliners and add more intensity at the same time, is by layering over black liner. Check out step-by-step pictures below so you get a visual idea.

1. Start by applying black eyeliner over your top lid.

 3. Apply mascara, and if you’d like apply colored liner to the bottom lid as well.

  • 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.

Maybelline color tattoo eyeshadow review

The perfect eyeshadow would stay on all day, without creasing and look just as vibrant at the end of the day as it looked in the morning. Maybelline decided to make this a reality with their color tattoo eyeshadow line by Eyestudio. Let’s put them to the test and see just how permanent this eyeshadow is…

Nothing is more permanent than a tattoo, which makes the name a perfect fit for an eyeshadow promising color that stays put all-day. The colors look vibrant, and each pot of eyeshadow costs about $6 at Target. Pretty good price, but does the tattoo shadow deliver as promised?! Keep reading and see how it worked for me.

Maybelline “bold gold” tattoo eyeshadow review

I purchased the color tattoo eyeshadow in “bold gold”  because I was looking for a neutral shade, and am a sucker for a pretty gold shadow. It looked very vibrant and shimmery in the pot, and applied so smoothly accross my eyelid. The color was very pigmented and stayed on all day with no primer applied!  The texture was silky so applying it with fingertips was much easier, and looked better than using a brush. As you can see below, the eyeshadow pot is a pretty generous size and it flaunts 24 hour wear.

Take a look at how the eyeshadow looks when applied in the pictures below. Glitter and gold galore!

The eyeshadow looks so pretty worn alone and lined with liner, great for a quick daytime look. As already mentioned, application of the product is super smooth. The shadow looks silky-smooth in the container, and when you touch/apply it the texture is exactly the same. At first I was not too happy about the shadow being creamy since there’s a greater chance for creasing, but color tattoo proved me wrong 🙂

Worn all day and did not crease, or fade. The pigmentation is great in these shadows, and considering the pot is a pretty big size it is priced very reasonably. If you have been wanting to try out these eyeshadows, I definitely recommend them. If you are unsure of which color to buy, get “bold gold”. It’s a gorgeous color and works well with all skin tones!
