Things to know about Eyeliner this year

Things to know about Eyeliner this year

Eyeliner has a transformative quality that, much like lipstick, alters the mood. For a bambi gaze, apply white eyeliner to your lower lash line; for a girl-next-door look line the top lid, underneath eye lashes, with black eyeliner; for a rebellious vibe, up the ante with kohl or liquid liner – the list goes on.

There are many ways eyeliner can serve as war paint, or simply enhance the shape of your eyes. While you consider your next move, here’s six things you should know about eyeliner this year.

  1. 2017 is the year of upside down eye make-up

    2017 is the year of upside down eye make-up

    Yep, I said it – upside down eye makeup. A single stroke of eyeliner worn below the eye is a makeup look sweeping across Hollywood.

    This trend is worn best with a strong shot of color, so choose something like bareMinerals’ creamy Round The Clock Intense Cream-Glide eyeliner in 1pm – a seductive blue-green shade.

    It's also the year of dotted eyeliner

    A look that will give everyone a talking point about your makeup repertoire – and it only takes a second.

    Fresh of the SS17 runway, this doll-like trend is everything. Just take a liquid eye liner (we love Stila’s Stay All Day Waterproof version for its staying power) and strategically place a single dot centrally under the lower lash line.

    Set your eyeliner with eyeshadow

    If you’re sporting pencilled eyeliner, eye shadow will lock it down and prevent it from smudging, and if you’ve chosen liquid eyeliner then topping it up with eye shadow will give your eyes a sultry finish.

    This is just the excuse you needed to try High Definition’s Eye shadow Palette in Vamp – a set of five smouldering shades in both matte and satin textures to bring your eyes to life.

    Monolid eyes? Try the 'reverse cateye'

    Almond shaped eyes – what beauty! For months now, cut crease eye shadow has been at the forefront of Instagram, a technique that allows hooded eyes, which are generally small, to fake larger eyelids.

    But it’s time for a change, so make it the reverse cat eye. This stems from the ‘upside down eye makeup’ trend, where you extend the sweep of eyeliner beyond the outer corner. Laura Geller’s Eye Calligraphy Eyeliner Marker means anyone, even those with shaky hands, can conquer this look and more.

    Use a white primer to intensify bright colors

    Priming the eyelids first, with something fabulous like the multi-tasking Anastasia Brow Primer, will cancel out your skin tone and create a blank canvas for bright colored eyeliner (and eye shadow).

  6. Wash your eyeliner brush after each use to prevent hardening

    Wash your eyeliner brush after each use to prevent hardening

    It’s fiddly, but worth it. Gel eyeliner has a tendency to stick to makeup brushes and not move once hardened, so get into a habit of washing yours every time with warm water.
