Lancome Artliner 24H Stylized Eye and Nail Looks

It was only a matter of time that my love for nail polish grew into a love for other types of makeup, and lately I have been practicing my eye looks. I am a fan of a bright, bold eye, and love using liquid liner as a bold finishing touch. Recently, I posted an eye of the day to my Instagram account, and someone suggested that I enter Lancome's #24HinParis liquid liner contest. I thought, "Why not?" and threw my photo into the ring. To my surprise, I was chosen as one of the finalists!

For the next round of the contest, I was sent a selection of Lancome Artliner 24H liners and was asked to make some eye looks for selection for the contest. Being a newbie to the world of eye makeup, I was pretty nervous! A friend suggested that I just treat the project like nail art, and suddenly it clicked. Read on for details on the two looks I created, plus the matching nail art.

(Just click the heart -- no need to give your email address or anything!)

Acidic Leopard
The first look that I put together is my favorite, probably because it features one of the best things in the world... leopard print! I wanted to go for a crazy, 80s, acidic style leopard.

Products Used:
Lancome Artliner 24H in Amethyst - Leopard markings
Lancome Artliner 24H in Jade - Inner corner and lower line
NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil in Milk - Shadow base
Sigma Redberry Rose - Lid
Sigma Ginger Pumpkin - Crease
Lime Crime Uniliner in Citreuse - Inside of leopard spots
L'Oreal Voluminous Million Lashes Excess - Mascara



For the matching nail art, I put together a classic gradient leopard. The base is a gradient of China Glaze You Drive Me Coconuts and OPI In My Back Pocket. The middle of the leopard spots are Nicole by OPI Sweet on Pete and the leopard markings were done with Illamasqua Baptiste.

Ice and Daggers
For my second look, I wanted to go for a more classic makeup look while still retaining a very stylized effect. I think this icy blue mixed with copper and jade is just the right amount of crazy.

Products Used:
Lancome Artliner 24H in Copper - Winged liner on lid
Lancome Artliner 24H in Jade - Dagger liner by lower lash line
NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil in Milk - Shadow base
Sigma Blueberry Cream - Lid
Wet N Wild crease shade from the Pop Art Craze pallete "I'm Seeing Triples!" - crease and browbone
L'Oreal Voluminous Million Lashes Excess - Mascara




And finally, the nail look I created to match this icy blue eye makeup.

The base is a gradient of OPI What's With the Cattitude? and OPI Ogre the Top Blue. After that was finished, I added one coat of Sephora by OPI Traffic Stopper Copper, a delightful copper glitter that had gone unused in my stash for much too long! The final stop was to add one coat of OPI Matte Topcoat to mimic the matte eyeshadow.



Which one is your favorite?

  12. Damn, doesn't let you vote twice haha! You're so talented Sarah, both looks are incredibly creative and crisp. My liquid liner always goes a bit wonky but hey... :)

    ReplyDelete
  13. Thanks! Liquid liner is so tricky sometimes. I've been using it since high school so I thankfully I had a little bit of practice... and my steady hands from doing nail art can't hurt either!

    ReplyDelete
  14. Sarah you are amazing!! Just amazing!! I ADORE both eye and polish looks, but I think my preference goes for the second. The dagger eyeliner is so hard-edged 80s I love it, and that matted mani is simple yet not, and totally to die-for! So impressive - congrats!! And good luck ;)

  16. I appreciate the support!! I had a hard time choosing which one I liked best, too. I think I actually prefer the eyes on the leopard look but the nails on the ice and dagger look!

    ReplyDelete

  24. Gorgeous, I especially love the leopard! I nominated you for a Versatile Blogger Award. I couldn't find that you had been before; which honestly shocked me a little bit so I'm likely a bad snoop. All the same, you've been a great inspiration to my blog and I think you truly deserve it! http://nail-ineit.blogspot.com/2013/10/versatile-blogger-award.html

  25. Thank you so much, I'm having fun experimenting!

    ReplyDelete
  26. Aw thanks, that means so much coming from you!

    ReplyDelete
  27. Thank you on both counts! While I'm so appreciative of the award nominations I receive from other bloggers, I don't really participate in them myself. That's why you weren't able to snoop any on my blog. :)

    ReplyDelete
  28. Oh my wow! You're an eyeliner whiz. You should do looks like that and post them too, I'd definitely be interested!
