Trying a Dark Waterline

Trying a Dark Waterline

This is kind of a random post but I tried something new with my makeup and felt like documenting it.  I’ve sworn off dark liner in my waterline for so long but wanted to give it a go. It could be ridiculous, but it kind of bothers me that it’s a makeup look that I feel like I CAN’T pull it off.

White and nude in my waterline will still be my go- to for the foreseeable future, but I actually like how the black turned out! This time I didn’t feel like it made me my eyes look so sickly bloodshot and closed off.

Annie Lawless Eyeliner Tutorial

Annie Lawless inspired me to try it out.  I heard about her brand Lawless, a liquid lipstick line that is all natural and has cute colors.  After creeping through her Youtube channel, I found her eyeliner tutorial and gave it a go. Definitely have to give her credit.  I cannot wait to try Lawless liquid lipsticks one day!

I have done it twice now after watching the video and am happy that I don’t feel so intimidated by the look anymore.  I took the day off to use up PTO time so I’m currently watching Keeping Up With The Kardashians & drinking coffee with way too much pumpkin spice in it.  🙂 Thank you for reading and have a great day!

    I think it looks amazing! Especially with your blue eyes. I personally love darker water lines. I feel way “emo” when I do black but brown always turns out amazing ☺️

      What brown liner do you use? Thank you for the compliment, I def felt edgier than usual with the dark compared to my usual white line haha. 🙂

        Haha ☺️ I use one from Rimmel London, can’t think of the name right now but it has a kohl liner on one side and a cream shadow on the other. Another one I really like is from Covergirl, Ink It! not sure the shade but it’s like a shimmery brown/amber
