This post on Beaut.ie about red eyeliner (gick or gorgeous, you decide) reminded me that actually, I quite like red eyeliner as a look. The Beaut.ie ladies are, it is fair to say, divided on the subject ;)
I think with a strong line and the rest of the make up kept very neutral, a red liner is quite a striking look. I posted this red eyeliner look with Suqqu eyeshadow back in February 2010, and I decided to visit the Illamasqua counter to pick up a matte red eyeshadow and a red medium pencil (Illamasqua's can be used on the eyes and lips) for a stronger look.
I bought Feisty medium pencil (coral red) and Daemon (scarlet red) powder eyeshadow. I already owned Succumb powder eyeshadow (peachy flesh-toned) which I used as a base from lash to brow before drawing the line with the Feisty pencil and going over it with Daemon powder for maximum staying power.
I used Primal blush as a contour (already owned this), and only lip balm on my lips. I did also use concealer (W3LL People), mascara (Lancome Hypnose Precious Cells) and eyebrow pen (Suqqu Moss Green).
Full face picture. I like it. Mr London says it looks quite 'ninja' (do they wear eyeliner, outside of 30 Seconds to Mars videos?) and Miss London thinks it looks 'cool, and all wing-y'.
Would you wear this, or will you be passing on the red eyeliner?
