Fun eye make-up: Using eye shadow as eye liner

I love to apply the jane iredale Eye Shadows as eye liner. There are so many colors to choose from, the look can be soft or intense, and it really lasts. To create great staying power, line with a co-ordinating shade of Eye Pencil first, using the Eye Liner/Brow Brush to really work it into the lash line. Next, take the Detail Brush and spritz with Hydration Spray or just moisten the brush under the tap.  Pick up any of our PurePressed Eye Shadows with the moist brush.

Starting at the outer corner of the eye, place your brush at the lash line and follow the lash line in, ending where desired – be artistic and experiment! This is a great method for creating the cat eye: simply wing up and out at the outer corner. It may be easier to do this without lifting your brush, or you may find you get a neater, tighter line if you use connected dashes.

To create a softer look, blend well or go over the line with a dry brush using the same shade or a similar, lighter shade.


  1. I love using our 24K Gold in any of the colors in this same way. It’s perfect for a fun evening look or anytime you want to feel a little sassy!

  2. i love this! my mom wouldn`t let me where eye liner because she thinks its to “intense”. but i did this with neon green i shadow, (lawl) and she said it was perfect and appropriate! And i still feel like i`m wearing liner!
