Vibrant Ombre Eye Liner Look featuring Rimmel…

Ombre Eye Liner

Of my entire makeup routine there’s very little that gets my creativity flowing more than trying out exciting new eye looks. I’ve been on the lookout for some colourful eye liners for a few weeks now and when I spotted the Colour Precise liner jumping out from a well stocked Rimmel stand on a recent shopping trip, I couldn’t resist checking it out. From the very first swatch across the back of my hand I just knew we’d get along roaringly well, and before long I was mentally conjuring up some new make-up ideas… specifically a fun eye-catching ombre look!

Ombre eye liner

Although Ombre isn’t exactly fresh on the scene, I haven’t seen it done hugely with eye liner. Having blue eyes I knew the colour of the liner pen would compliment them perfectly and be a really fun look for a night out or when I was just feeling extra creative. It’s also a fabulous contrast in replace of shadows – which is something I thought I’d try out considering I very rarely leave my lids naked.

With Rimmel being one of my favourite pocket-friendly brands it seemed a great opportunity to rummage around my beauty drawers to showcase a few of my other daily favourites. So if a bright ombre eye liner look sounds like something that you’d love to try then here’s just a few of my favourite products will undoubtedly make it a success…

Rimmel Colour Precise Liner in Blue

Rimmel Colour Precise Blue

This is actually my first investment in any coloured liner and one thing that struck me about this pen was just how vibrant the blue appeared on my skin when swatching it. It’s incredible bright, but also felt really comfortable to hold. It’s pretty apparent that each of us gals have our favourites when it comes to choosing eye liners: Kohl, liquid, pen or gel! Although I’ve always been a liquid liner kinda girl, I have to admit this really surprised me just how quickly I adapted to working with a pen style liner. Okay, so it took a little bit of confidence on my part, but as soon I quickly got the hang of it I felt like I had my ‘flick on fleek’ in no time!! Best of all, the liner stayed in place for hours… not even the slightest signs of flaking, smudging or budging.

Quick Tip: Don’t be shy on pushing down on the nib, I went a little too lightly at first until I realised the fabulous colour control when you get more confident.

Shimmering shadow

You can use any brand you like but make sure you choose a shadow that’s easy to work with in terms of pigmentation. Once you have your blue liner in place, take a small tipped brush & dab a little of the shimmery shadow along the inner part of the blue liner; fading the powder out (lightly) about 1/3 of the way across. Don’t forget to follow on top of your coloured liner, as that’s what you’re aiming to change into a beautiful ombre look!

Rimmel Glam Eyes Professional Liquid Liner

As many of you already know this is an absolute make-up staple for me. There’s been no other liquid liner that has been so easy to use whilst maintaining a long lasting formula and finish. The tapered tip really helps to achieve incredibly precise results for super-fine detailing, so naturally this was my only choice for darkening the outer flick of the coloured liner to create a dramatic winged look… which was the final step of creating the overall ombre effect!

Rimmel Extra 3D Lash Mascara

Although I’m not usually a fan of the plastic tip mascara wands this has definitely converted me. The overall look can be really dramatic the more you build on the layers, I usually just stick to two which leaves my lashes looking fluttery and fabulous!

Taa daa! This was such a quick look to create but one that gives such a dramatic and sassy final result, plus I love how the blue really brings out the colour of my eyes! I can’t wait to try this with a few other colours, but one things for sure… I’ll definitely be getting my ‘glam on’ more often with Rimmel’s Colour Precise liners – which are also available in both white & black too!

    • Heeeeello lovely ladies! I do hope you’re both keeping swell 😀 That is super impressive to be using it for 6 years!! They’re doing something right, that’s for sure 😉 Like yourself I’m a huge fan of Rimmel liners – they’re fabulous!! Great to get a chatter with you ❤ XXXX

  1. I love your ombre look! I actually tried it a while back, my eye liner was very subtle then (https://thegirlwithanaccent.wordpress.com/2016/02/13/valentines-day-make-up-and-the-like/) . But I tried it again more recently and loved the look! I used a darker blue colour with gold in the inner corner. I don’t have blue eyes but I still feel like it worked out well! And this look definitely brings out your eyes! Super pretty!!

    • Thank you so much huni 🙂 Really chuffed you like it, it was my first attempt so wasn’t too sure how it would go but it was surprisingly easy to what I assumed it would be – taking into consideration my limited liner skills lol lol
      Just checked out your post too (thanks so much for the link!) and it is lovely, I really like the fact that it is slightly more subtle as that way I think it’s more wearable and not as risky for those who aren’t coloured liner wearers. It really suits your eyes, gorgeous!!!! 🙂 XXX

      Ps: thanks for the lovely compliments!! XX

      • You’re most welcome! You totally earned it! And I would’ve never guessed your liner skills were limited hahah. Your liner is on point! You should try more liner looks!
        Thank you so much! I tried a bolder look and loved it too. Only I didn’t take a picture of it because I was in a hurry.. I thought ombré liner would be much more complex too.. But it really wasn’t so bad!

        Hahah I’d like to think we’re skilled! (but that’s just me being optimistic, haha) I think I’ll definitely try it again! And I’ll make sure I take a picture before I go out the door!

      • Hahah definitely! It also makes a great story! 😛
        Aww you think so? I wouldn’t really call myself skilled hahah. I usually wear glasses and I’m a blind bat so wearing eye liner on fleek is impossible for me without contacts xD but thanks!! I think you nailed yours too! I wouldn’t believe you if you said otherwise!!

      • Oh yes, skilled indeed – so many people find liner exceptionally hard to do let alone try an ombre so well done to you 🙂 Well, whatever contacts or glasses you’re wearing they’re doing a grand job hehe Awwh thank you – looks like we’ve both done alright by it then 😀 Win for us!!!! lol xxxx

  3. WoW! You literally nailed it and the blue eyeliner theme looks so great with your blue eyes but I have brown eyes albeit and I have brown and I’m so intrigued to know how it works on me. I think I need to make an attempt this time to know more about it.
