Think eyeliner and the first thing that springs to mind is the cat eye, traced with utmost precision and a black liner. Black is the most obvious choice in liners and for that very reason, can be a bland one.
If you are looking to spike up things in the eye-lining department and want to experiment with eye-defining looks, we have some choice treats for you.
Did you know that Vasanti’s Kajal Extreme Intense Eyeliner Pencil comes in three different colours that are sure to add drama and depth to all eye colours? We are not counting black as a colour in this discussion.
These pencils are intensely pigmented, so the colour pay-off is amazing. The colour you see is the colour you get. Secondly, they are super-creamy so they won’t tug on delicate skin around the eyes. However the formula sets to a long-lasting finish. You can smudge it for a smokier look around the eyes, then wait some seconds for it to set, this is one layer of colour that is not straying away!
Our Kajal Eyeliners are infused with Vitamin E to deliver conditioning benefits throughout their 8 hours of wear time. Another worry taken care of.
If you want to ditch the stark black, but are not yet ready for colour, Charcoal Brown is a safe bet for you. It is a high-intensity, rich brown that will not fade. The colour is designed to make your own eye colour stand out and add richness to it. Most flattering we say.
You can line just the upper lashline for a subtle look, or line all around the eyes and then smudge it with the clever smudge tool at the other end of the pencil for a more lived-in look.
A rich, jewel-toned purple, this Kajal Extreme Eyeliner Pencil rocked a look done by our featured make up artist Vicky Mina.
See the drama and glamour it adds around the eyes? That’s what we are talking about.
To keep things simpler for day time looks, you can dot the liner around your upper and lower lashlines and then smudge them together, for just a whisper of colour around the eyes. Très chic!
And finally our star that has seen action at the New York Fashion Week. Electric Navy featured prominently at Cynthia Rowley’s show this February. As models strutted down the ramp, they had a meticulous cat-eye drawn with our snazzy blue liner. It is one product to get your hands on, for Fall 2014, we tell you.
The colour is universally flattering on all skin tones, it enlivens the eyes, bringing back colour on the face. Adrien Pinault, lead make up artist from Birchbox used it to really 'emphasize the eyes' and make them pop.
