When I do decide to wear makeup, I usually use the products for steps they’re not meant for. I’ve used eyeshadow as highlighter and blush as eyeshadow. Recently, I tried something new to me and applied liquid lipstick as eyeliner.
I love bold colors so I thought this would be a fun way to use my favorite lipsticks on my eyes too. All I had to do was dump some of the product on a flat surface and use an angled brush to line my eyes. Using this technique, you can start off with something simple and fine and build it up if you want. If you’re not used to applying eyeliner with a brush, just keep on practicing until you get the desired look. To get you on this makeup tip, here are some liquid lipsticks you can use.
Too Faced Melted Matte Liquified Long Wear Matte Lipstick in Sell Out
If you’re keeping your look nude and neutral, try this shade. It’s a natural shade with hints of peach. You can first apply a brown shade all over your lid and then finish off with winged eyeliner in this color. You can apply it on your lips too or go for something more bold. Available on Sephora PH.
Colourette SupraMatte Liq’Lacquer in Miranda
Amp up your makeup with a deep red shade. Dip your angled brush into the product and start to line your eyes. You can go for something simple or try a wing. Drag some of the color to your bottom lashline as well to tie everything together. Available at SM North EDSA.
J.Cat Beauty Lipfinity Matte Lip Kissproof in Girls Night Out
When using a bright color like purple on your eyes, get creative with it. Start of by lining your eyes like you normally would and then add on to that. Draw lines and dots on your lower lash line and across your lids as well. Available at Uptown Mall.

For something subtle and work-appropriate, try this light pink shade. This can be the only makeup you wear on your lids that day to keep it simple and clean. Pop this in your bag so you can fix it easily if it gets smudged. Available at Greenbelt 3.
NYX Soft Matte Metallic Lip Cream
Metallic shades look great on lids and on lips so use this shade for both. Dubai is a mix between copper and chocolate brown, giving it a deep color. This will look good on its own or with eyeshadow. Complement this shade with blues, pinks, and oranges. Available at SM Makati.
Maybelline Superstay Liquid Lipstick Super Impact in Non-Stop Orange
Another bright color you can try is orange. Swipe this on your lids when you need to brighten up your day. It’s long-lasting and doesn’t flake so you don’t have to worry about it in the middle of the day. At the end of the day, use an oil-based makeup remover to get everything off. Available at Watsons branches.
MAC Retro Matte Liquid Lipcolour in Young Attitude
If you’re go-to eyeliner shade is black but you want to branch out a little, try this shade. It’s a mix of blue and green but on the darker side of the spectrum. Bring out the color even more with eyeshadow shades in similar colors. Available at Power Plant Mall.
