Running tight on money but really want that new colored eyeliner?
Happens to me all the time! im always lemming for new products, but in tight financial situations, just try to use what you already have and improvise! :D Im sure you all know this already, but i was playing around and felt like i could have saved a lot of money in the past if i did this more often lol.
all you need:
a small angled brush or fine tip brush
a gel liner or pencil liner
selected few from wet n wild palettes
and then its reeeeal simple!
all you do is line your eyes like you normally would, and then afterwards, pick up some eyeshadow (any shade you want!) with a fine tipped or angled brush, and pat the shadow on top of the liner!
Not only does this create gorgeous colors giving you an instant colored eyeliner, but you're also setting the eyeliner so that it lasts much longer throughout the day!
as you can tell, the wet n wild shades seem to give off a more vibrant look when applied on top of the liner.. this is because the shadow itself is much more pigmented than the annabelle shadows. Also, some of the shadows will give off a slightly different shade when placed on top of the black liner (or any other color) as their true undertones will show up more.
With this said, i would advise you to experiment with different shadows first so you know what the overall look would be :)

opps.. you can see my pajamas LOL
I know this isnt any new discovery or what not, but i hope that it'll help some of you save some money in the future :) i think this is especially useful if you dont wear colored eyeliner often.. this way, you'll still be able to try out some fun colored looks once in awhile without sacrificing alot of money to buy new pencils every time :)
however, i will say that this method of course, will not replace some of the really good eyeliners out there. cause we all know the ones with super creamy textures and gorgeous shades are must-buys.. haha but since im trying to cut back on buying new makeup, this will do for now :) i hope you all have fun and take care!
