Brighten Up Your Eyes with Nude Eyeliner

Brighten Up Your Eyes with Nude Eyeliner

Wearing nude eyeliner on the waterline is a great way way to open and brighten up tired eyes in lieu of a stark white pencil. In the photo above I am wearing Illamasqua Medium Pencil in Cane (pale matte canary yellow) which is perfect to achieve this look but unfortunately discontinued. Don’t fret though as I have the perfect substitutes for you.

NYX Wonder Pencil in Light

NYX Wonder Pencil ($4.50) in light is a great substitute to achieve this look. The matte nude beige pencil will illuminate your eyes when applied to the waterline, it also comes in medium and dark if you prefer a darker shade. Best of all this is a multipurpose pencil and can also be used as a spot concealer and a lip liner to make colors pop more.

Rimmel London ScandalEyes Waterproof Kohl Eyeliner ($4.49) in Nude. Also a matte beige pencil, the waterproof formula has extreme pigmentation and supposedly doesn’t budge once dry making it perfect for the waterline.

Using Nude Eyeliner is a great way to brighten up your eyes during the Summer season while keeping makeup to a minimum, or anytime of year for that matter.

  1. First time commenter here! I tried this with an ELF eyeliner (coffee, I think?) and got GREAT results! Combined with the winged eyeliner, it really made my eyes pop. Love the blog!
