Scared of Colored Eye Liner? How Anyone Can Pull Off Jessica Biel’s New Look

Colored eye liner can be tricky. Aside from going too light (what’s the point?) to going too dark (are you joining the circus?), finding a flattering color in a sea of brights can be difficult. However, the green liner Jessica Biel wore last night, Chanel Long Lasting Waterproof Eyeliner in Jade ($30, chanel.com), would look great on anyone. Here’s why.

Jade— a cross between blue and green — compliments blue, green, and hazel eyes. As for brown, any bright color will enhance the eyes. And because the liner is only placed along the bottom lash line (she has a light coating of black liner on top), the effect isn’t overly intimidating and won’t overpower a bright blue eye or striking green. For your first time, apply a super thin line and finish just before the inner corner. For your next try, go a bit thicker and extend to the corner.

When you’re really into the look, do colored eye liner on both lash lines for a seriously attention-grabbing look.
