I was inspired by a blurb in the new InStyle magazine (with Katie Holmes on the cover) about graphic eyeliner on the runway. The models shown had thick, winged eyeliner in bright colors. Theirs was a lot messier than the look I did, so I'll have to try that sometime soon too.
Anyway, for this look I kept everything else simple and focused on making the eyeliner/wing the most important piece. I used a few different skin toned shades from my Coastal Scents 88 matte eyeshadow palette- I think the matte finish helps make the overall look more refined. I used the smudge end of the Covergirl Liquiline Blast eyeliner to help create the wing shape, and geesh, smudge-tips are my saving grace! They make applying eyeliner so much easier.
Thumbs up for sparkle!
-Almay Bright Eyes eye base
-Coastal Scents 88 matte eyeshadow palette, matte beige for lid, white for inner corner/browbone highlight
-Wet n Wild Lust eyeshadow palette, matte deep magenta & matte eggplant to "set" eyeliner, shimmery cream to highlight
-Covergirl Liquiline Blast eyeliner in Violet Voltage for upper lash line liner
-Physicians Formula Shimmer Strips eyeliner trio for hazel eyes, magenta shade for lower lash line

So basically it's just a simple way to pull off a somewhat "bolder" eye look, if you want to go that route but don't want to commit. ;) Hope you enjoy!
