I decided to try my hand at a double liner. I was pleasantly surprised at how it came out. Not perfect, but much better than I was expecting. This was taken before I went to go see the latest Hunger Games film during Thanksgiving weekend.

My inspiration was from Viola at Killer Colours (ie totally copied it as closely as I could - I'll link post when I can find it again) and Phlox at EyeGraffiti has a great one using a different color Wet N Wild liquid eyeliner!

I thought this was a super fun look except for the fact that my eyes watered the entire time. I don't use liquid eyeliner much and my eyelids get this really weird almost numb feeling after I start applying it. I don't know if my eyes are sensitive to an ingredient or if it goes with liquid eyeliner that has to dry or set on your lids. Anyone else get that feeling? Should I be avoiding a certain ingredient? Please let me know!

A word of advice - I recommend doing it the way Phlox recommended. A thick line of the colored liner followed by a thin dark line near your lashes. I think if I had tried to do a steady line of color above the black eyeliner, it would have turned out much differently, and likely not as good.

I think this could be really fun using gold or silver to spice up a Christmas party look!
