Going beyond traditional black or brown eyeliner can be a quick and easy way to enhance the eye. In choosing alternative eyeliner colors, there are several things to consider. These include selecting colors that complement your eyes, ensuring the eyeliner doesn’t clash with other makeup, and taking into account your outfit and appearance goals. Is it for work, after hours, a special occasion? Do you want a conservative opposed to more dramatic look? See the references below for suggestions about choosing colored eyeliners.
