What’s up, chica? How’s your day been? Rocking hard, I hope, like old school Van Halen (insert headbang [HERE]).
One of my favorite morning rituals lately involves a cup of green tea (with honey, YUM!) and your comments. This morning I was looking at the comments on Saturday’s Tokidoki Perfetto Liner post. Lots of us were brainstorming ideas for ways to wear Donutella, the funky pink liner in the pictures.
Um… pink liner? Yup, it ain’t your average basic brown or black, but that’s no reason to fear, because Donutella is here! This cutie’s actually downright wearable.
Here’s one subtle way to wear it that’s pretty doable for daytime. I used a mix of products from MAC, Tokidoki and Rimmel.
- Tokidoki Perfetto Liner in Donutella
- A black liquid liner; I used LORAC Front of the Line Pro
- A black pencil liner like MAC Technakohl in Graphblack
- A white or beige pencil liner like MAC Chromographic Pencil in NW25/NC30
- A black mascara like Rimmel Glam Eyes Lash Flirt Mascara
Ready to start?
First, draw a thick line along your upper lash line with Donutella (or something similarly bright), adding a little flick at the end if you’re feeling dramatic.
Then, using a black liquid liner, trace a very thin line along the lashes directly on top of the pink. Thicken the line ever so slightly as you move out toward the outer corner of your eye (the side closest to your ear).
Next, with your black pencil, line the upper waterline.
Finish by lining the lower waterline with the white or beige pencil (it helps make your eyes look wide open), and coat both upper and lower lashes with mascara.
Completo! All done!
I love how the pink comes through without being so bright or obvious that it’s screaming, “LOOK AT ME!”
When I blink (or make a goofy face, heh!), there’s a quick flash of color… Kinda cool, isn’t it? Like a makeup surprise!
If pink’s not your thing, maybe give it a try with something else, like a bright orange, yellow or green.
