To brighten up the eyes:
If you've had a crazy last night or went partying until the wee hours of the morning, you'll most likely appear droopy eyed the next day. But you can easily use your nude eye liner pencil to immediately brighten up your eyes and make them look bigger.

To clean up the brow:
If it has been way too long since you last visited the salon to get your eyebrows waxed, tweezed or threaded, and you need to look proper for an important meeting or family function, here's a trick I learned – use your nude eyeliner around your brow! By using the nude liner around your brow, you can not only hide the tiny, little extra hair that has grown since you last did your brows, but also give the illusion of a much more crisp brow which will in turn accentuate your eye makeup.
To clean up bleeding lipstick:
If you like to use dark shades of lipstick or ones that are really creamy, then there's a fair chance your lipstick could bleed along the day. An amazing way to avoid that from happening is to use your nude liner to clean away any trace of lipstick that has bled and stained your mouth. Also, using a nude liner around your lips can give them a highlighting effect and make your lips appear fuller!
To clean up your eyeliner wing:
If you are a fan of the cat eye, you'd know that without much practice you can never get the exact same shape and size of the winged eye liner every time. Not to worry lovelies; if you aren't happy with the wing, just clean it up with your nude kohl and you're good to go!
To conceal tiny blemishes:
If you have freckles or tiny blemishes that need to be concealed or hidden, a nude liner can do the needful. After applying your makeup, if you feel there's a spot that requires extra coverage, just use your nude eyeliner over it and blend it well with your fingers. Don't worry about the liner not matching your skin shade because as you blend it in, it won't look ‘made up'.
So there you are! With these 6 fantastic ways to use a nude liner, you're sure to make head turn.
