Calling all makeup chameleons! Our all-new Graphic Liner is the perfect tool for anyone who loves to play around with different trends and looks. From a simple tight line to the trendy double wing, Graphic Liner will help you try it all with precision and ease. With the convenience of a felt tip pen and the staying power of a liquid liner, this new tool will help you achieve the definition and drama you are looking for!
We love the beauty quip, “Never ask a girl with winged eyeliner why she’s late.” It makes us smile because for most of us attempting to apply liquid liner, the process can be tedious, messy and time-consuming, sometimes resulting in more time spent removing wayward liner than we’d like to admit. If you can relate, then it’s time to try the all new Graphic Liner from glo minerals.
The glo minerals Graphic Liner comes in black and black/brown and will add drama and definition to any look. With the convenience of a felt tip pen, the application is smooth, simple and mess-free. Its staying power alone is enough to make this one of our new favorite products, but add the precision and ease of application to the mix and we’ll never be afraid of a trying a cat eye again!
As a professional makeup artist, one of the most common question I get asked is “How do I get my eye color to pop?” I’ll tell you right now that it’s not as hard as you think. It’s all about selecting the right tools. Eyeliner is the best tool for bringing out your eye color and I’m not talking about your everyday black Eyeliner, I’m talking about color people! Think about it for a second, eyeliner is the product that is applied closest to your iris (which is the area of your eye with the most color) and since our eyes have unique multi-dimensional color, why just go with black? Using color to bring out color will truly make your eyes pop so let’s begin by taking a deeper look!
What Is the Best Eyeliner Color for Brown Eyes?
Because brown eyes usually contain several different shades and tones, brown-eyed beauties pull off several colors. Deep purples, navy blues, and forest greens are my favorites for brown eyes because these colors can really lighten and brighten the eyes!
What Is the Best Eyeliner Color for Green eyes?
For green eyes, stick with rich colors like plums, violets, and browns/golds. All of these different shades will really play with those lighter flecks in the iris and actually give the illusion that your eyes have changed color.
What Is the Best Eyeliner Color for Blue Eyes?
Make your blue eyes pop with light to dark gray, steel and navy blue, and warm orange gold or bronze eyeliners. By using these different colors you can take your eyes from a deep steel blue, to a true gray, to a light powder blue!
What Is the Best Eyeliner Color for Hazel Eyes?
Hazel eyes are a dream to work with because they can hold any color under the sun and morph into some pretty amazing colors. If you want to add depth try a smoldering smoky rich brown or a deep forest green. To lighten them use a gold, violet, or olive green.
What Is the Best Eyeliner Color for Grey Eyes?
Grey eyes are already pretty bold. To make them stand out even more, define and sharpen the color with a rich black, or a gunmetal grey. Whitening along the waterline by using a flesh toned or white pencil will also add clarity and brighten the eye.
Q: What tips do you have for finding the right eyeliner shade for your eye color?
When it comes to making the right choice of liner for your eye color, things can sometimes get confusing! My basic suggestion (not a rule by any means, as rules are made to be broken!) is to pick an eyeliner color that is opposite your eye color in undertone. For example, when it comes to brown eyes, most people want them to look as rich as possible. Using blues and charcoals will help brown eyes really stand out.
For blue eyes, you could certainly use a navy liner BUT I like using a black/brown liner to really brighten blue eyes. I have green eyes which puts me smack in the center of cool and warm. So which color do I choose? When allergy season hits (bear with me) and my eyes are red the green pops like crazy! That tells me to choose a liner with a red undertone, like purple or a light brown. I like Precision Eye Pencil in plum.
Those of you with hazel eyes are lucky! You can use any liner color and it will bring out different shades of your eye color. Browns will bring out the yellow. Blue will bring out the brown and purple will bring out the green.
For our grey/blue eyed friends, using black liner will sharpen the color of your eye and really make them pop!
Q: Hi Kate! How do you keep your eyeliner from running at the corners and underneath your eyes?
– Donna via Facebook
Kate: Thanks for your question, Donna! Eyeliner can often travel to places where it shouldn’t but there are a few easy steps you can take to prevent this from happening. If you have oily eyelids start with glo minerals Lid Primer then apply Perfecting Powder on top of the primer. Next, apply your liner followed by another layer of Perfecting Powder on top. Because it’s translucent, the powder will not affect the color or depth or your liner. Follow the same steps when applying liner to your lower lash line. Start by using Under Eye Primer then use the Smudge Brush to add a thin line of Perfecting Powder only where your liner is going to be. Apply your liner then set it with another layer of Perfecting Powder and it should stay put!
If you don’t have oily eyelids, but you still have a problem with running liner, make sure to try different formulas to see which adheres to your skin the best. A lot of times I find that cake liner (eye shadow used as a liner) has long lasting staying power. I like using Eye Shadow in sable with a wet Eyeliner Brush. Also try applying Cream Eyeliner, Precision Eye Pencil or Liquid Liner then apply Eye Shadow in sable or kona (whatever shadow matches the color of your liner) with flat Eyeliner Brush. The powder will help keep the traditional eyeliner in place.
