how wonderful yellow is. it stands for the sun.

Happy Monday! I can't believe it is the start of another week already. How did you spend your weekend? Mine was super busy. I did some work (okay, a lot of work! I was determined to cross some things off of my to-do list) and went to a birthday party for my boyfriend's uncle. Yes, it was definitely a jam-packed couple of days. Here is hoping the rest of the week is a little more...relaxing! Ready for today's blog post? It is all about yellow! Okay, and makeup. Here goes!

Spring is a time of colour. When the sun is shining and the flowers are in bloom, colour is everywhere. Even in our clothes and makeup! With that in mind, I picked up an eyeliner that was a little bit different. On a regular basis, I stick to neutral colours - especially when it comes to eyeliner. I love blacks, browns, and purples. But what about yellow?

That's right - I bought my very first yellow eyeliner.

I was browsing the shelves at Sephora and it caught my eye. I debated for a brief moment before deciding to take the plunge. It was time to step out of my comfort zone and really embrace colour. Enter, the Stila Stay All Day Waterproof Liquid Eyeliner in Canary. It is a bright matte yellow shade - that knows how to make a statement. 

The liner was creamy and pigmented - and the perfect way to make a splash this spring. In fact, I loved the colour payoff so much, I have already created a wishlist for more colours. Mint Julep, here I come! 

So, how did I wear it? Instead of using it as a substitute to black liner, I chose to pair it with a classic black cat-eye for a look that was both wearable and fun. I am definitely excited about all the ways I can play around with this in the future. Here is a look at my Stila eyeliner in action:

If there is one thing I am trying to do this spring, it is get creative with my makeup...and colour is one exciting way to do just that. 

What do you think of this Stila eyeliner? What colours do you have in your makeup collection?
