Subtle Purple Eyeliner Look With Lancome Drama Liqui-Pencil

Influenster Lancome VoxBox, Lancome Drama Liqui-Pencil and Definicils Mascara Review, Easy Subtle Purple Eyeliner Look

My weekday makeup aesthetic is really simple. I’m all about healthy glowing skin that’s warmed up with bronzer and highlighted with a little low-maintenance strobing — my two favorite highlighting products that are all shine and no glitter: this palette and this fresh glow fluid — plus filled and tamed brows, a quick swipe of rosy blush, and a nude lip.

For my eyes, I usually stick to neutral cream formulas that I can apply quickly with my fingers, with a little tight-line on my top lashes and a good coat [or two] of mascara. Bold eye shadow palettes and colorful eyeliners scare the bejeezus of me, so when Influenster sent me my first VoxBox with a bright purple eyeliner, my first thought was, “What am I going to do with this thing?”

I turned to my Pinterest beauty board for inspiration, and found a photo of Cara Delevigne wearing a clean and simple makeup look with a pop of bright teal liner on her lower lash line. Eureka!

To start, I applied the Lancôme Visionnaire Yeux eye balm under my eyes and lightly on my lids to moisturize and prime the eye area. I used Make Up For Ever’s HD Invisible Cover Stick Foundation as a base; I love the natural-looking, flawless coverage. I warmed my skin up with Too Faced Chocolate Soleil matte bronzer, and filled in my brows with Anastasia’s ‘Perfect Brow’ pencil. I used Maybelline Color Tattoo in ‘Bad to the Bronze’ all over my lids as a base, then tight-lined my upper lash line with the Lancôme Drama Liqui-Pencil in black, and ran the same pencil in ‘Ampoule’ along my bottom lash line. I finished my eyes with the cult classic Lancôme Définicils High Definition mascara in black. The effect is really subtle and eye-brightening, and the purple pulls a lot of green in my blue-green eyes.

Some thoughts on the Lancôme products:

  • The eye balm is a nice base for the eye area and wears well under makeup. I’ve found that concealer and/or foundation glides on really well over the balm, and I don’t need a powder to set the area afterwards.
  • I really enjoy the Drama Liqui-Pencils. They glide on like a creamy gel — no tugging or dragging — with lots of pigment, and set to a long-wearing finish that stays put all day. The black stayed in my waterline without transferring or fading, and the purple stayed bright and pigmented until I washed it off at the end of the day.
  • The Définicils mascara is great if you’re looking for “your lashes but better” with natural definition and length. It doesn’t flake or smudge, and goes on without a clump. If you like your lashes with lots of volume and oomph, this formula may not be for you.
* I received these Lancôme products complimentary from Influenster for testing purposes.
