Wearable Makeup Trends 2019 – Graphic Colored Eyeliner

I am the first one to put up my hand and admit that the previous video in the series „Wearable Makeup Trends 2019“ was far from being an actual challenge.  Soft eyes, red lips – I wear that any given day, no matter if it is on trend or not.

So for today’s look, I figured I´d venture out of my comfort zone. VERY FAR out of my comfort zone in fact.

Wearable Makeup Trends 2019 – Green Graphic Liner

 

I used color. Green color.

Apparently green is going to be absolutely on trend in 2019 (and even more so with St. Patricks Day right around the corner. Lá Fhéile Pádraig– shout out to all the lovely Irish folk celebrating!)

To make up for the fact that the green is very (very!) subtle, I combined it with a colorful graphic liner, one of the eyeliner styles that is huge in 2019 (Pinterest said so!). And, at least if you choose a dark green like I did, one of the few colored eyeliner versions possible to pull off at the office.

Quick and easy everyday makeup for winter 2019

For me winter in terms of makeup starts when Christmas is over – Holiday makeup is a whole category of its own. (Although it has similarities – see here)

So when January came, I sat down and rummaged through my stash to rediscover products I used to love, but that somehow got pushed aside for other stuff. Because, as I said here, I am guilty of abandoning my favorites for things that actually don´t work as good for me, simply because they are newer.

I mean, what is the point of saving a lipstick I love while desperately trying to use up the one that isn´t as flattering, so I can get rid of that one first? I feel stupid even typing this, but it is what I subconsciously did.

This face however is all old products, some that old that I don´t want to know exactly when I purchased them, and I couldn´t be happier with the results.

Day to night makeup tutorial using affordable products

I think it is well established by now that I don’t have much of a social life. But I do remember a time when I had, a life when a spontaneous invitation for after work drinks or even a date could happen.

And I remember how hard it was to look fresh and glammed up with a ten hours work day under your belt.

I only applied it to take it off half an hour later – ah, the glam life!

 

I watched countless day to night makeup tutorials on You tube, but I admit that in reality I rarely had the time for the complicated makeover some suggested nor the products with me that were apparently needed.

Because, lets be honest, if I were to go home in between work and my date, I´d do my makeup again from scratch. With a little practice anyone can do a glam look in less than ten minutes. (Don´t believe me? Here and here are some examples.)
