Two-minute makeup | blue winged eyeliner

Just a quick liner look that I wore around a week or two ago to try out a new acquisition (UD Lust). Unfortunately, it pulls very blue on my lids – gorgeous, of course, but I was really hoping for something more violet! As it stands, Lust kinda reminds me of another old favourite… except it’s more expensive and doesn’t wear as well. It is more readily available outside of Canada, though, which is about the only thing I can think of that works in its favour!

Sorry that I haven’t the time to chat – have a stats final in just a few hours. See you afterwards & I hope you enjoy the eye look nonetheless :)

    If you're looking for a more violet coloured eyeliner, UD Delinquent seems more like what you're looking for….or perhaps it might be a touch too plummy? I know that NYX also has really highly regarded eyeliners as well…maybe you'll have more luck looking there?

    I thought for a sec that you would compare the colour to a the discontinues Annabelle colour that you loved – Blu-ray, I think??

    Good luck with your stats final!! I have a Philosophy exam today too!!! *fingers crossed*

    • Ah! Thank you for the recs, my dear :) & I hope your exam went well!

      P.S. Oh my gosh, I haven't used B-Ray in ages! Will have to pull it out again this weekend – it's a matte finish, and more navy, but you've just reminded me of how much I love it ^.^

  • The UD 24/7's are my favorite pencil liner hands down. This looks great on you! =D

    • Thanks! I *like* them, but I don't think I'd call them my favourite – a little too slippery for my lids, I think.

    Simply too gorgeous :-) By the way, which lens do you usually use for your portraits and close-ups?

    • Thanks! I just use the basic 18-55mm kit lens – I haven't any others yet, unfortunately!

  • Maybe try Ransom or Rockstar for a more violet color? It does look pretty purple to me, though @_@ Does this mean I need to have my eyes checked? Again? Le sigh.

    • Haha, it's probably just a monitor thing ;) Will check out the shades you rec'd, though – thanks!

  • Lust pulls very blue on me as well. Ransom is more violet, might be worth a try if you haven't got it. Or Asphyxia which is more pinky purple. My absolute favourite UD eyeliner shade is Rockstar, although it's more plum than violet.
