This summer, we’re all about the low-effort techniques that make for high-impact beauty – and a pop of colour on the eyes is all you need to update your look. Coloured eyeliner is fun, fast and easy to apply - and it works no matter what your age, skin tone, eye colour or hair colour.

 

Enter NEW nc Intense Waterproof Eye Pencils – with the choice of classic matte shades plus metallic jewel-tones, electric blues and rich bronzes, all of which are impactful, eye-enhancing and totally wearable. The coloured eyeliner trend doesn’t have to be scary. It’s simple to try out even if you rarely get playful with your make-up. And the best bit is you can forget the rules because this trend is all about expressing yourself.

“Coloured eyeliner is super popular right now. With the pandemic, there has been more time at home to experiment with colour. Plus, bolder shades work as an instant mood uplift in times of stress.”

Using nc Intense Waterproof Eye Pencil in Maroon, this look goes to the inner corner of the eyes to create an inner-corner wing. The Charcoal shade adds extra definition to the lower lashes.

Blue eyeliner is the new black! For a cool blue twist on a classic application, take a pop of Blue across the bottom water line and onto the top lash line, then diffuse out for a smoky effect.

Amp up your wing! This look takes nc Intense Waterproof Eye Pencil in the luxe Brown shade across the lash line and out. Then, the bright blue colour traces along the top of the Brown to create a double-hued cat-eye. 

 

What’s the best colour eyeliner for your eye colour?

NEW nc Intense Waterproof Eye Pencils enhance eye colour in a way no other make-up can. The shades enhance your eye hue effortlessly. So if you have blue eyes, choose brown or bronze. Those with hazel eyes should try bronze also, while brown eyes should go for a pop of electric blue. Finally, if you have green eyes, opt for Maroon as the perfect iris compliment.

Professional tips

Keep the rest of your make-up minimal

Remember that the coloured eyeliner should be the star of your look. Stick to one bold and choose the eyes over lips. Keeping your hair and outfit simple also means you can wear these eye looks casually, too.

 

A little goes a long way

Even a tiny pop of colour on the lash line can add edge to your look. Why not choose classic brown or black, then layer coloured liner at the corners for extra definition?

 

Eyeshadow first

Lightly powder the eyelid with a neutral matte eyeshadow shade before applying your colour. Our creamy pencils are longwearing and will hold even with foundation underneath.

 

Limit your hues             

Try and stick to a maximum of one or two different colours per look. Any more than that and it can look OTT – you want to keep it classy but cool.

 

Be bold!

Be it feline flick or a fully graphic shape, it’s all about having fun. Apply in small fine strokes, get as close to the lash line as possible and keep the Micellar water at hand for any tidy-ups.
