New Graphic Eyeliner Trends for Fall
How daring are you? This Fall, it's all about the liquid eyeliner. Open-edged, Thick and Squared-off, and the Double-Sided Cat Eye… these may take practice to perfect but they're so cool, it's worth it.
Apparently the Neo-Rocker look is easier than it looks. According to InStyle, all you have to do is use a stiff-pointed brush to trace the upper and lower lash lines. The only difference between this look and a traditional cat eye is that you extend the lines straight out 1/4 inch past the outer edge of your eyes and of course, the lines don't meet. Don't flare the lines up though- keep them straight, like an equal sign.
Before applying liner, dust some translucent powder over your lids. Now begin... Hold your skin taut by dragging your lid toward your temple and apply a thick line across the top lashes and just past the lash line. Then draw straight up and across the crease in your eyelid so that it resembles an open square on your lid. To fill it in, use pencil and matte gel eyeliner and use a cotton swab with makeup remover to fix any mistakes.
This sexier version of the cat-eye reminds me of a Lady Gaga poster- not something to wear to the grocery store. InStyle recommends using a marker style pen for this look because it offers more control over the lines. For the top lid, create a dotted line along the top lash line and extend it upward, past the corner of your eye. Then retrace your dotted line to thicken it on the lid. For the bottom, start from the top of your nose bone called "the bridge" and draw upward toward the middle of your eye. Fill it in at the tear-duct where the upper and lower lines meet to form a crooked V. InStyle's makeup artist says "Don't be alarmed—the lines will look crooked initially. You have to perfect the shape with Q-tips."
