Lately I’ve been all about the perfectly lined eye. It’s hard to call it a trend — it’s always in — and every season it appears on numerous runways. Last month, we talked about the teal eyeliner from Chanel’s F/W show, but this time, it’s all about black. It always makes me think of Brigitte Bardot and the 1960s. She is my ultimate eyeliner inspiration (Audrey Hepburn is a close second). There is something so quintessentially French about this look, so naturally there is a lot to love.
Geisha Ink Liquid Eyeliner ($30 CAD at BeautyMark)
The trick to the crisp line is the felt tip brush. It’s precise and easy to use. One of my all-time favourites is Geisha Ink (I blogged about it here and here). Anyways, I can’t rave about this liner enough, which is why it keeps popping up on my blog, time and time again.
Tokidoki Perfetto Eyeliner ($19 at Sephora)
And another new fave is, surprisingly, by Tokidoki. I met up with Tokidoki’s founder Simone Legno a couple of days ago and he told me that the liner was designed to mimic his drawing pens (then he so charmingly drew his famous Cactus Dog on his arm to demonstrate). Cute and precise — I’m hooked.
Another must-have, especially if you have oily lids (like I do) is an eyelid primer, to keep things from smudging. I’ve been using Urban Decay’s Eyeshadow Primer Potion Tube ($23 at Sephora) and so far so good!
Have you tried either Geisha Ink or Tokidoki? Any favourite lid primers? Who is your eyeliner inspiration?
