Get graphic: a cut-out eye of the day

Monday, July 11, 2011

I had originally planned on just doing a weird liner look, but once the liner was in place, I couldn’t help but fill it in with colour. So, today’s makeup look is sort of two makeup looks, really!

I’m more inclined to the colour version (of course), but I did like both. Hope you enjoy them just as much as I did!

Just the liner

The liner, plus copious amounts of colour

Products used (neutral + liner)

Lids and undereye: theBalm timeBalm Concealer in Lighter Than Light, NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil in Milk (white base), MAC Matte2 Eye Shadow in Blanc Type (neutral lid colour)

Lines and lashes: Marcelle Liquid Eye Liner in Black, L’Oreal Double Extend Beauty Tubes Mascara in Black

Other: Smashbox Eye Shadow in Smoke (brows)

Products added (colour)

Pressed eyeshadows: Flirt! unnamed eyeshadow (violet), Annabelle Mono Eye Shadow in Lagoon (deep blue)

Loose colour: MAC Pigments in Lovely Lily (shimmery lilac), Vanilla (inner corner hilight), and Naked (middle of lid)

Other: Urban Decay 24/7 Eye Liner in Lust (waterline)

    This is so cool! What was your inspiration? You must have such a steady hand to free hand like that!

    oh my gosh this is gorgeous. totally rocking this eye next time i go for a night out! love it even more with the colour filled in!

  7. So awesome!!

  8. Oooh, how cool! And UD Lust is gorgeous. I need that. I'm not sure I could pull this off, though. I tried a double winged split liner thing yesterday, looked in the mirror, and collapsed into a fit of giggles. Artsy looks are not for me!

    Hi Rae, I discovered your blog last month and I must tell you it's fantastic! I smile every time Google Reader tells me that you've posted something new. I'm new to makeup (shocking at my age) and I have a tiny makeup collection. I have a handful of neutral and colourful eyeshadows but I've never worn them outside. The most makeup I've worn is eyeliner and mascara — twice when going out for dinner. I find that most eye makeup tutorials (elsewhere) are heavy handed. Though the looks are great for those people, I can't bring myself to do the same to my eyes. Going from no makeup to gobs of makeup on a smaller Asian eye crease is not my thing. Your minimalism and penchant for colour are right up my alley.

    Do you do any video tutorials of your eye looks? (I hope so.)

    As a fellow Canadian, I enjoy your reviews and inclusion of brands I can get at my local SDM or LD. Last thing to this long post — thanks for making me feel like a "cool kid" with your post on Marcelle's brow crayon. I was shocked that I had something that a blog was talking about. (Granted, I had only bought it a few days before reading the post but that's beside the point. hee hee!)

    Keep up the great work!

  12. Love. Love. Love!!!

  13. Highly envious of your liner skillz (so good it required a z). Both are great but I prefer it with colour too!

  17. Aww, ty! :)

  18. Glad you liked it! I just felt like doing something with liner; nothing really "inspired" me aside from general boredom :P

  19. Ha! Thanks, hon :P

  20. Yeah! That's one of my favourite parts of eye makeup – the fact that you can create the illusion of different shapes ^.^

  21. Aww, thanks! xx

  22. Glad you liked it!! Have fun recreating the look :)

  23. Thanks! xx

  24. Tee hee, thank you! :)

  25. Haha, I'm glad you liked it! *grins*

  26. Can I tell you a secret? I don't love Lust :s It's a really pretty shade, but I'm (gasp!) not a huge fan of the 24/7 formula.

    Aaanyhow. I happen to think that you totally could; it would just take some getting used to :P

  27. a;slkdfjgh thank you!! I'm really glad that you're enjoying the blog & the Canadian content!

    I know exactly what you mean about the brow pencil; I feel the same way when I have something that one of my favourite bloggers reviews :P Hope you're enjoying the pencil – for something soft and creamy, it's great. (I haven't any recs for a stiff brow pencil, unfortunately, but I do have a soft spot for brow powders! I find the final brow look is easier to control with them.)

    No eye makeup videos at the moment (sorry!) but I'm not writing out the possibility ;)

  28. Haha, thanks hon!

  29. :D

  30. Lol, sorry! :P Glad you like the look x

  31. Haha, glad you like it! :D

    Very awesome! I actually think both look really cool, though I prefer the colored one, too, it's kind of scifi. Makes me wish I could pull off cut crease looks.

  33. Ah…I don't use them on my waterline – nothing sticks there, and whatever does is a pain to get off! I rarely line my…waterline (is there a better way to say that? so many "lines.") I do love them on my upper lash line, though :D

  34. Wow! This is really unique and cool. The liner one looks couture while the colored looks clubby.

  35. Slips off both the waterline and the upper lash line, for me :( *small cries*

  36. Aww, thanks hon! :D

  37. Haha, tbh I'm not even certain *I* can pull this one off – but it was fun nonetheless. I figure, if you like the makeup, rock it anyways! :P

    Definitely a look suited for your beautiful monolids. It would look ten times different with my double eyelid eyes! (Very, very VERY different! I wouldn't even attempt it.)

    Very gorgeous.

    This is really stunning (both combinations!) I fully appreciate how hard it is to get the lines so clean and even!

  43. Aww, I think it could be cute on double lids, too! Just slip the upper line into your crease :)

  44. All I can do is flail right now. You have no idea how much I love this look, with and without the shading. :D

  47. i love it! it's not very often i compliment a fellow artist, but yes the look is beautiful. you have perfect eyelids for it too. i prefer without colour but the shading is beautiful on the with :)

  48. *blushes* Thank you, Kylie! That means a lot to me :) I'm glad you liked the look!

  49. I want to try this sooo bad! The eyeliner that you used for drawing the outlines, is that with pencil or liquid?

  50. It's a pen-tipped liquid : )
