Double Liner Eye Makeup💋🔥

Welcome back to my corner of the internet ! I’m so excited to tell you all about this double liner look I tried out last week! Let’s hop in!

I was trying to think of a simple but bold (super contradicting I know) way to add a pop to my simple makeup look I had created. My solution was using this silver liner I got from the beauty supply store and drawing a mirror image of my winged liner slightly above my crease! I had seen a similar look on one of my favorite YouTubers Alissa Ashley as seen below:

It certainly pays off following your favorites on other social media because she hasn’t put a tutorial of this look on her YouTube channel. 

So this is the eye look I created: 

Products List:

  • LA Girl pro concealer in Toffee
  • Sasha cosmetics buttercup powder
  • Morphe 350m pallet
  • Colourpop limited edition Birthday Boy eyeshadow
  • Silver liquid eyeliner
  • Black liquid eyeliner 
  • Benefit Roller Lash Mascarra 

I’m working on upping my makeup techniques so be on the lookout for many more makeup posts to come!

NYE look #1 deep smokey eye/Wet n Wild glitter review 

Hey my lovelies! So I’ve decided to do two looks for New Years! This is my first look a deep smokey eye with glitter! I am also going to review the glitter I used as it was a new product to me! 

First things first is the base. I used my ABH foundation stick in Cocoa, LA girl pro concealer in Toffee and set it with Sasha Buttercup setting powder and my L’Oreal face powder. 

For the eyes I used the 350m palette. Which I will have a review on soon. 

I also used these lashes from LashLand co. A small business I found on Twitter. 

For glitter I used this Wet n Wild glitter in Brass. I do not recommend it. The consistency is like a gel but it does not dry down. It’s very hard to work with. I’d give it a 2/10 only because it’s very pretty, just a mess to work with! For glow I used my ABH glow kit in That Glow. 

To finish the look off for lips I used Kylie Cosmetics True Brown K liner, Mac Toupe lipstick and a gloss! 

Overall I was pretty happy with the outcome. Just wish I used a better glitter. 

What are your thoughts? Have you used this glitter before?

Let me know in the comments!

Love Always,
