One of the main reasons I started making my own earrings is my love of funky makeup. I had just learned to do leopard print, then branched into cheetah, giraffe, and zebra, then went really wild with peacock feathers and aspen trees! But I never had anything to match it! Sure, I am not the first person to make leopard print or zebra print earring, but you really can’t find them readily unless they are currently on-trend. So I started hand-painting my own. And I am the only one that I know, who makes them in the colors that I like to wear. Pink and black zebra print, or red and black leopard….then I got into the polka dots! Pink and white, purple and green….the possibilities are endless! And, as my dear Lollipop has so wonderfully introduced to me, there are a ton of funky colored liquid eyeliners out there in which a vast array of artistic possibilities can be achieved!
Here are some of my favorites with the earrings to match:

Here are some of my favorite earrings to match:
For leopard print, I usually stick with golds and reds. Create the base on the eyelid (I tend to do half dark and half light on the lid, then even lighter above to my eyebrow.) Then I add the rosettes by hand. Black liquid eyeliner is my favorite, but sometimes I do the reverse leopard and use black shadow with gold liquid eyeliner rosettes.
For zebra print, I normally pick either a white or a silver for a lash-brow base. Sometimes I will add a fun color to line the crease, like pink, purple, or gold. Then add stripes with liquid eyeliner. I love black, but I have used purple, blue, turquoise, and brown for stripes. It is also fun to match these colors! A pink base with white stripes, or a red base with black stripes…
Aspen trees are surprisingly easy; just a little time consuming with the necessary dry time. Put the base color on–I usually use gold or a greenish to look like grass–then block out your trees with white liquid eyeliner. Once that has dried, add the black lines and eyes that aspen trees are known for. Bare trees are easier, but I have been known to add green dots near the brow in order to resemble leaves. Regular trees are also fairly easy. If you mess up with the branches, you can always add green to make it leafy! Or white on a bare tree to resemble snow!!
For giraffe print, I usually start with a white or light gold base. Then I will use either the black or the white liquid liner to block out the square patterns. Then I fill it in with orange eyeshadow, because I have yet to find red or orange liquid liners!
The tiger print is soooo much fun! I vary with dark orange, orange, light orange, and red along the lid, and let it fade into a white by the time it reaches the brow. Then I use the white and black liquid liner to add various stripes!
Now, my Eye Love It earrings are a little harder to match, so paired with this shirt, I think it looks fabulous!
These are some of my makeup looks that I intend to make earrings to match:
