I personally think that is too much eyeliner on the bottom lid.

As for eyeliner, I like the HIP eyeliner creams that best for staying power.

It's slightly too much, for me.

I've heard that Urban Decay's 24/7 pencils work really well, although I haven't tried them out myself.

Also, to make eyes pop, try lining just the outer parts of the eyes on the lower lids. So, from the parts closest to your ear, inwards, but not closing off the eye entirely. Just half the lower lid. This helps for me.

IMO I think it's too heavy looking on your inner rim, and I think it drags your eyes down. You do have pretty eyes! Can you change the color (like maybe a steel or light gray?), or maybe line the lower rim with a lighter hand?

Yeah, I think it's too much. And it's the wrong color for you - too harsh.

Makeup Forever Aqua Eyes
Styli Style
Mac Fluidline (but it could be irritating)
I heard the Urban Decay 24/7 works well on the waterline too. But it applies too sheerly on my waterline for my taste. Then I was watching a MUA and he said waterproof pencils aren't meant to go on the waterlines, since they just repel the moisture on your waterline and won't go on well.

Yes, too much. Looks harsh.

I think using liner on the waterline makes eyes look smaller...and gloppy. I only like a small amount of liner, on the outer half or third of the eye, upper and lower, well blended. It doesn't look accidental or incomplete if it's well-blended.

I think lower lashes should only have pencil or powder liner. I'm not a fan of liquid liner on the bottom. I'm sure it has it's place, but I've never seen it look good.

I think I like it, but I do miss some of the drama of the thick eyeliner.

What colors would you recommend? I've really never considered any color besides black for my eyes.

once again, thanks so much for the opinions!
Hello! as i am a makeup artist I will have to say some people can pull off the heavy eye liner, you being one of them HOWEVER you look better with the less. Now as for color you have brown eyes?
Browns of course, greens and purples are the best for you however i only have brown and black in my person, both colors goes with anything!

I'm really not a fan of black liner on the bottom - I usually use a dark shadow instead - it looks much less hard. I think you should try just lining your top lids and doing the cat tail at the outer corners. Then lots of mascara. That looks killer on big brown eyes!

I was checking out eyeliners too, and have the same skin tone as you.

So far I've found that Make up Forever's Aqua Eyes eyeliner in navy blue might be the best choice.

A flash of color to make eyes pop, but not overdone, IMO.

Now I just have to save up seventeen bucks...

I don't think so but I love dark eyeliner. I would make the top line just a bit thicker so that it matches the lower. I usually wear my liner that way.

I think it is a bit much for a non-eyeglass wearer.
I tend to wear my liner thick due to wearing glasses.

I agree with most of you, it's too much. Especially in the lower lid. It may already irritate your eye.

I like the second pic a lot better...BUT, I also think in that pic, you should pay more attention to the liner on the top lid, rather than the lower lid, or just line top lid only. Focusing on the lower lid is a strange look, to me.

Sometimes I'll do the black-in-the-waterline look, but I just put a teensy bit, then squeeze my eyes a bit to soften the line, then remove the excess. Then I do the smoky eye look with eyeshadow. Dramatic eyeliner with very little eyeshadow always looks a bit "off."

A great intense black liner pencil is L'Oreal's Carbon Black.

I think you would look great with dramatic top liner, though, and if you want to do the really dramatic eyeliner, save it for a special occasion and really go crazy with the Cleopatra look, which you could totally pull off.

I agree with those who said the second pic looks much much better.
I'm not a big fan of the waterline eyeliner look though.
I also think you need to focus on top lid liner as well. You have great eyes for some really dramatic eye make up.

Speaking of top eyelids...

How do you apply eyeliner there? I use an automatic/pencil liner, but (this is going to sound gross...) my eyelid is too flabby. Even if I tug it by the corner.

So when I'm done the line is above where it's supposed to be, not on the edge of the eyelid.
