Makeup can be a very versatile way to express yourself, and it’s nothing lesser than a piece of art! Over the years, the way we do our makeup sure has changed, but the intent has remained the same - expressing yourself. Bright colours and intricate shapes have made their way to the mainstream, especially when it comes to liners.
If you’ve taken a look at new makeup trends, you must’ve seen some beautiful detailed liner looks. These graphic liner looks may look intimidating at first, but with a steady hand and a little practice, you can create some wonderful graphic liner looks. So, here are some easy yet gorgeous looks you can try this festive season or otherwise.
Double & Tri Liner
If you think eyeliner is over done, here’s a liner look that hits a little different. This look utilises your waterline and brings out your eyes in a charming way. Pick a liner of your choice, you can use a liquid liner or an eye pencil. Another way is to spritz some water on an angled brush and dip it in an eyeshadow of your choice. Begin as you normally would for a wing getting as close to the lash line as possible. You can do a small flick past the end of your natural lash line to give it a winged liner effect. You can layer it with two colours or even opt for an ombre look.
This is the perfect look if you love to make your liner look like an art piece or if you mess up easily. The colour palette is endless and so are the looks. You can draw flowers, hearts, butterflies or even squiggles for this look. This is a look with no rules. Choose your colours and draw what you like over and around your eyes. You can also add some rhinestones or glitter to amp up the artistic vibes.
Even if you’re not a pro at makeup or have an unsteady hand with liners, you can make these looks work for you! The only rule here is - do what you love! We hope you try out some of these looks and enjoy them as much as we do.
