3 Ways to Use Nude Eyeliner

Nude eyeliner is a makeup bag staple. If you don't have one and need a reason to get one, here are a few reasons for you.

1. You can use it on your brows
You can use it to either highlight your brow bone, or clean up any mess in case you made a booboo when drawing on your brows (yep, that's what I use it for because my hand isn't steady, and the Dipbrow that I use dries quickly so the only way to fix any mistakes is with this).

2. You can use it on your eyes
You can line your inner rims to make your eyes look bigger, it looks way more natural than doing it with a white pencil. But you can also use it to sharpen your wing. If like me, the wing on one of your eyes looks perfect but the other one always ends up wonky, use a nude pencil to fix it! Basically you're "erasing" the wonky bits by drawing on it with the nude liner. Mistakes? What mistakes?

3. You can use it on your lips
Highlight your cupids bow area by defining it with the nude liner. It'll make your top lip look poutier. Try it. Or you can use it all over your lips to give your lipstick a blank canvas to appear on.

Bonus Tip
You can also hide a pimple! Sure, you can do the same with a concealer, but this pencil is easier to carry around and the sharp tip means you can spot-conceal the tiniest of pimples.

My nude eyeliner of choice is the Rimmel Scandaleyes eyeliner pencil in Nude, and as you can see from its size, it's had a lot of use!

Have you tried a nude eyeliner? How do you use it?


  1. I actually don't own a nude eyeliner... What have I been doing all of this time!? This looks great xxx

    1. Haha, it is very versatile so I hope you find one that you like!

  2. This is such a good idea! Will have to keep my eye out next time I'm shopping for one of these. Thanks for the tips :)

  3. I love to use it to create custom eyeliner! I'll line my top lids with the nude liner like I would any other colour, and then use a thin angled brush to stamp any colour eyeshadow over that line! Voila, any eyeshadow now has the look of a pencil liner on my eyes!

    1. Oh wow, what a FANTASTIC idea! I'm so going to try it, thanks for the tip! Yay, no need to buy coloured liners. xo

  4. Loved this! I'm going to try using it around my lips to give them a bit of a (much-needed) oomph. haha x
