Double Duty Beauty: How To Use Lipstick As Eyeliner

A bright, playful makeup look caught our eye on day 4 of LFW SR’19. Amidst all the blues, a bright red eyeliner created by Key Makeup Expert for Lakmé, Marianna Mukuchyan stood out, loud! It's just the breath of fresh air our summer makeup look needs. It’s versatile yet bold and extremely easy to recreate. All you need is a liquid lipstick!

We spoke to Marianna and asked her to breakdown the look for us and here’s what she says “I love using the same product in multiple ways. I often use liquid lipsticks as eyeliner, they’re the perfect pop of colour your eyelids need. When I’m in a pinch, I always use cream lipsticks as a blush as well. They blend quickly and it's the only way to perfectly match your blush to your lipstick.”

 

Here’s how you can get the look:

STEP 1:

You want to begin your makeup with clean, glowing skin. Prep your skin using luminous makeup. The Lakmé Absolute Illuminating Foundation is the perfect base for that glowy look. “Clean, glowing skin is my signature look and that’s what we chose for the show. A little bit of highlighter dusted on the high points will give you that runway glow” adds Marianna.

STEP 2:

Set your eyelids with a coral eyeshadow. A sheer wash of the coral eyeshadow from the Lakmé Absolute Illuminating Eye Shadow Palette in Nude Beach is all you need on your eyelid. Next, smudge some matte red lipstick on the back of your hand. Take a fine eyeliner brush dipped in the lipstick and draw on some eyeliner. If you don’t want to use red, choose any colour you’d like. The Lakmé 9 to 5 Weightless Matte Mousse Lip & Cheek Color in Tangerine Fluff is the perfect mix of coral and red

STEP 3:

A few coats of mascara will complete the look. You want your eyes to do absolutely all the talking, use a lengthening mascara like the Lakmé Absolute Flutter Secrets Dramatic Eyes Mascara in Night Drama to give your lashes that oomph and volume.

Using one product in a few different ways is a makeup hack every makeup artist swears by. If you don’t want to carry around too much makeup, this is the trick you need to have up your sleeve. Marianna is definitely the queen of double duty beauty, we even spotted her mixing eyeshadow with lip gloss for a glossy eye makeup look!
