Let’s Discuss Drew Barrymore’s Bright Blue Eyeliner At The ‘Miss You Already’ Sydney Premiere

Drew-Barrymore-Miss-You-Already-Premiere-Australia

I’d like to start this post with a quick disclaimer.

I love Drew Barrymore. I think she’s fabulous and such a talented actress. Basically she’s an all round awesome, balanced, funny person.

With that now aside her makeup look, well actually her eyeliner, at the ‘Miss You Already’ Sydney premier was a little bit horrible.

I love the peachy glossy lips, and her porcelain skin (god she has such good skin!), but that electric blue eyeliner! What in the world was her MUA thinking? Too many bubbles I’ll assume.

It’s fun to occasionally wear some colour on our eyelids, especially because we normally head for safe neutrals like blacks and browns – but Drew’s entire eye socket rimmed in a neon shade just makes her normally large and vibrant eyes look small and tired.

If the above blue eyeliner is now making you regret all your ‘fun’ makeup purchases in bright shades, here’s some advice so that you can still wear bright colours without ruining your look.

If you want to line both the upper and lower lash line with blue, then choose a shade that’s darker. So instead of electric blue, perhaps opt for a cobalt blue one like Urban Decay shade in Abyss. Going one shade darker will be much more flattering. Also try and counteract this eye-popping colour with long fluttery eyelashes.

If you are simply IN LOVE with your neon blue eyeliner, consider lining just the top lash line the way you would with a cat eye flick. Next, coat your bottom and top lashes with mascara and leave it at that. It’s far more flattering and still very fun without going OTT with blue eyeliner.

What do you guys think? Did you like this look or do you also think it’s a bit of a miss in the beauty stakes?
