Switch Up Your Makeup Routine With Some Colourful Eyeliner This Summer
Backstage at the Fall 2018 fashion shows of New York and Milan, coloured eyeliner was the one standout beauty trend that was a common thread among them. From blues, to greens, purples and a fun spectrum of hues, the eyes were lined anything but black and we sure aren’t complaining.
Using a little colour on the eye isn’t a new trend. In the 1960s, white was was often used to rim the lash lines to achieve that fresh, doll-inspired eye. During Fashion week, when we laid our sights on the playful eye makeup as shown on the models of Christian Dior, Elie Saab and Anna Sui, we couldn’t help but want to consider some clashing shades of pinks, blues and purples to have some fun with instead.
We’ve all tried daring shades of colour on the hair and bold lipstick, so why not consider adding some head-turning hues to your eyelids as well?! It’s more than just a fun way to play around with makeup — coloured liner has become a legitimate way to change up your look. Additionally, for women with dark brown eyes wearing any darker blue-based shades like purples and blues will contrast against the whites of your eyes and make them seem even more white and fresh.
Wear it only on the top or bottom (or both!), switch out a shimmery shadow for a liner instead or mix and match colours for a dramatic effect, there are so many different ways to rock this trend! So set that boring black liner aside for the moment and take your pick from our shoplist of coloured eyeliner picks below and start rocking the bold trend yourself!
