You likely have plenty of eyeliners stashed in your makeup bag. Chances are, you’ve definitely got a basic black eyeliner—but maybe you have a few brighter shades, too. But what about nude eyeliner? You may not have given it a passing glance before (after all, you can’t actually see it), but it turns out nude eyeliner can prove to be very useful as part of your makeup routine. So, pick up a nude eyeliner pencil and try the seven makeup hacks below.
Yes, you can highlight your eyes to help them appear brighter. All you have to do is swipe a nude eyeliner pencil along your waterline. For an added touch, you can trace just under your nude eyeliner with the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Silkissime Eyeliner in Highlighter.
Nude eyeliner can also help enhance the appearance of the width of your eyes as well. To get the slightly stretched look, apply a dab of your go-to nude eyeliner at the inner corners of your eyes. Be sure to blend your eyeliner in with your fingertip for a seamless finish.
If your gaze seems sunken or your lids simply aren’t popping as much as you’d like, grab your handy dandy nude eyeliner. Simply draw a circle in the center of your lids to create a bit of dimension. When the center of your lids are lighter than the rest, this gives the illusion of rounder-looking eyes.
Trace your brows with a creamy nude eyeliner to carve and sculpt them into your perfect shape. The key to this hack is to fully surround your arches before blending with your fingertips.
By now, you’re probably a pro at highlighting and contouring your face. All you have to do is trace a swipe of bronzer in the shape of the number “3” stretching down from your forehead to your cheekbones and eventually your jawbone. Then, you’d follow up your contouring with a highlighter along your cheekbones, between your brows, down your nose, and the center of your chin. While highlighter definitely has a place in your makeup bag, on those days when your clutch is simply too small to fit this product inside, nude eyeliner can be used in its place. With a single swipe down your nose, on your chin, and between your brows, you’ll be able to create that lit-from-within-look.
The best way to fake the appearance of a pillow-y pout is by highlighting your cupid’s bow. But you don’t need to use highlighter—nude eyeliner’s here to the rescue again. Draw a little bit of nude eyeliner on the top of your cupid’s bow, then blend in with your finger.
No color correcting concealer in sight? No problem! All you have to do is reach for your nude eyeliner. Spot a pesky blemish? Quickly dot on nude eyeliner and blend it with your finger to expertly mask the look of imperfections.
Once you’ve finished applying your nude eyeliner like a pro, finish off the rest of your makeup with flawless-looking skin, a bold lip, and a flirty set of lashes. Start by applying a full coverage foundation, like the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Total Cover Foundation. Use the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Blend Artist Foundation Blender to dab and roll the foundation onto your skin. Are you a fan of matte finishes? Then try the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro-Matte Liquid Lipstick. Sparkles more your jam? Then pick up a tube of the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Paints/Lips Metallic. Finally, it’s mascara time. Apply a coat of the L’Oréal Paris Voluminous Lash Paradise Washable Mascara.
