The Eyeliner…

I never really moved with a certain makeup trend automatically, it usually takes me sometime to feel a trend and most of the time I don’t follow it.

But this one, the eyeliner trend. I love it, I am so into it I think it’s because I used to love wearing eyeliner in many ways as a teenager growing up. The eyeliner trend however, is not for everyone. It is a bold look of an incomplete wing, graphic or a crazy eyeliner look that defines the eyes.

Personally I feel makeup brings out my features, and in that sense I apply makeup in a way that really shows off my character. Experimenting with the different eyeliner trend is actually a way for me to express myself and what mood I am in. I love it.

Here are the top eyeliner trends:

1- Colored Eyeliner: I would go for a one color eyeliner or mix it with a little bit of black. The most subtle colors are purple, blue and emerald green or even gold it also matches with any of your outfits. You can apply it as a wing liner, or under eye the with a pencil to smudge it out.

2- Negative Space Eyeliner: It’s just the regular wing liner, just minus filling in the wing, so leave the inside of the wing unfilled.

3- Incomplete Wing: Start with a regular winged liner and the extend the line on top of your crease tracing it in a V Shape. Do not extend to more than 1/3rd the length of your eyelid. The easiest liquid liner that provides the easiest application is by Grandiose Liner by Lancome, (bendable eyeliner).

4- Dark Eyeliner: A classing eyeliner look only you make the line thicker and go for just black eyeliner. Apply the liner on the upper eyelid and lower connecting them in the inner corners of your eye.

KKW Powder Contour

kkw beauty kitAlthough KKW contour stick got really bad reviews. I honestly believe that the second product of Kim Kardashian is not so bad after all. The Powder Contour Kit in Medium is the one I own.

I loved it, I haven’t used the bronzer shade yet (I found it too dark and has an orange undertone which is not a favorite look of mine).

The compact is divided into four squares, each big enough to dip a bronzing/ contouring brush into aside from the brush that comes with it. The first color is a highlighter, creamy off white in color. Which I love the most, I apply it in the inner corner of my eyes, bridge of my nose and under my brows. It gives off the perfect shimmer illusion.

Second square is the concealer setter (that has a little bit of shimmer / if you like to set your concealers with that), a pale ivory shade that works.

The powder is super pigmented. Last but not least is a neutral taupe brown with no orangey tones blends extremely well, stays put and actually looks very natural even when heavily applied.

I apply this brown tone with no foundation sometimes if I’m in a hurry and need a little bit of contouring, it stays put and the color does not change tones when applied with foundation or without.

The KKW Powder Contour is great for beginners, and if you’re into a nice highlighter shine then this kit is for you. If she sells the highlighter on its own, I think it would be amazing !! I loved it more than other brands I tried, and would definitely continue using the highlighter, the contour part, well there are other brands too.
