Natural Looking Eyeliner

*Post originally written by Olivia J on The Unknown Beauty Blog.*  If you see this post elsewhere, it has been stolen!*

I thought about this post and postponed it for a long time because it didn't seem important.  I don't know how helpful an eyeliner post for a natural eye look can be when the majority of makeup junkies love their black eyeliner including me.  However, when a friend asked me to pick out an eyeliner that would just define her eyes for that natural eye look seen on television and movies, I thought maybe it isn't a dumb post after all.

As you know the popular colors and probably a staple in everyone's makeup stash is black and brown.  These colors are great since they will definitely define the lashline dramatically.  But what happens when you don't want the drama and just want the definition?  How do you find that eyeliner color?

Skin tone plays a major factor in this because the liner will be a color that complements it and not the lashes.  Are you porcelain, fair, light, medium, tan, drk, darkest?  Once you know that, you can easily pick out the color or colors. As a general guideline for porcelain to light a soft neutral medium brown; medium skin tones a warm brown; tan to dark a dark brown; darkest-black brown and black.  These colors can be used in any texture that you like cake, gel, liquid, pencil, or cream.

I usually like to use two colors, a lighter one for the bottom lashline and a darker one for the top.  For me this doesn't make my eyes look bottom heavy or baggy and the darker color on the top lashline looks emphasized without making the eyes look small.

Here, I show the result on Kelly.  I gave her a natural eyeshadow look nothing else and you can see the black eyeliner (picture on left) separates the eye area from the rest of the face.  In the natural eyeliner look (picture on right), I used the lightest brown on the bottom and the next darker one on top, you can see it the eyes open up and with a coating of black mascara (this is where the black comes in).  Her eyes still look defined.

For some the natural or no-makeup look may be quite boring and for others it may be an everyday look.  Whatever you think, achieving the look is easy if you know which colors work with the skin tone.  Just remember with the natural look, the colors emphasize the skin and not the color of the products.
