Move over classic cat-eye, there’s a new hero in town! Graphic liner is the new trend sweeping the beauty industry and here at LOOKFANTASTIC, we are obsessed. Whether you’re trying out a bold new look for a festival, or simply want to update your makeup routine for your next night out, graphic liner is a great way to make your eyes pop.
The best thing about graphic eyeliner is that you can be as creative as you want to be with it, and tailor your look to any occasion. Whether you like bright colours or funky shapes, there’s something for everyone. We’ve put together a round-up of three stunning liner looks created by LOOKFANTASTIC Beauty Pro Millie McCarthy (@milliemacmakeup) that you can try yourself at home, or for your next night out. WARNING: you’re about to become seriously obsessed.
LOOK ONE: Pretty pastels
Liner doesn’t always have to be in the same old dark colours. This pastel-toned look compliments lighter eyes, and is ideal for the spring and summer months.
Take the Lime Crime Venus Liquid Liner in the shade Dew Drop and draw a dramatic wing along your lash line.
Using the same shade, start at the end of your wing and draw a line inward along the crease, following the natural shape of your eye.
Now pick up the shade Peony and use it to line the outer edges of your double-layered wing.
LOOK TWO: Funky florals
Get ready for festival season with this super cute and simple floral style - ideal for when you want to spice up your look and make your eyes pop!
Taking the Lime Crime Venus Liquid Liner in shade Wisteria, create your petals by drawing a bumpy line connecting each edge of your eye – going as high as the brow bone to make the area appear bigger.
Now take the shade Dew Drop and draw little dots following along the edge of the liner, adding as many or as few as you like.
LOOK THREE: Purple rain
Take your cat-eye to a whole new level with this powerful purple style. Ideal for those who want to enhance their eyes and make them look bigger, this double layered look is great for your next night out.
Take the Lime Crime Venus Liquid Liner in the shade Wisteria and sweep it along the space between your crease and your brow bone. Follow the natural contour of your eye and end in a cat-eye flick.
Now take the shade Peony and line directly underneath your first line, starting at the inner corner and stopping halfway. Then move to the top of your initial line, this time applying from the centre to the outer edge.
Picking up your Wisteria shade again, create a wing along your lash line.
Lastly, take your Peony shade and draw along the outer line of your wing, followed by the inner third of the lash line, starting at the inner corner.
