In a Makeup Rut? Go Bold with Eyeliner

The other day I realized that I was in a serious makeup rut. My summer eye makeup routine is pretty no nonsense, and I think I’ve worn the same three eyeshadows all summer long. I just can’t be bothered with elaborate eye makeup when it’s hot. But, I hit my wall. I got bored, and maybe even a little whiny one morning. Then I picked up my Lancome Ink Artliner in Teal Delight from the Spring 2010 collection (a favorite still!) This lovely cream liner was my one-way ticket out of rutsville. It’s amazing what a simple swipe of color along your lashline can do for a mood.

I believe this liner was limited edition, so if you don’t have it, here are a few recommendations for you to  get our of your summer eye makeup rut. My picks are all in the blue/green family, because I just can’t get enough.

  • Lancome Le Stylo Waterproof Long Lasting EyeLiner in Minuit ($25.50) – It’s a deep navy that I think has an interesting twinge of teal. This is way more interesting than basic black.
  • Bobbi Brown Long-Wear Gel Eyeliner in Ivy Shimmer Ink ($21) – The ultimate gel liner out there! These are so easy to use, and the colors are stunning. Especially this deep green.
  • Tarte SmolderEYES Amazonian Clay Waterproof Eyeliner in Navy ($25) – Love these for a one-minute smokey eye, or just a swipe along the lashline. They have fantastic staying power and powerful pigment.
  • NARS Larger than Life Long-Wear Eyeliner in Rue St. Honore ($23) – This navy eyeliner is possibly the most gorgeous navy blue eyeliner I’ve ever seen. It just lights up my eyes. I’m a blue-eyed child, and it’s awesome. BUT if you have blue eyes, you need this.

Any eyeliners you’d add to the list? Let us know!
