Fresh off the Fall 2008 Couture fashion shows, we are seeing graphic eyeliner everywhere – thick and winged out, on the crease and even under the eye. The look is young, bold and totally now so if you have not mastered the art of lining, you better dig out your eyeliner and start practicing pronto!
Jean Paul Gaultier
This reminds me of a look I did that was inspired by an Accessorize ad with super model Lily Cole. The trick is start out by drawing a line on your crease with a pencil before going over it with a black liquid liner. Keep the rest of your eye bare with just a thin line along your upper lash line and tons of mascara on top and bottom.
This look is all about pretty pastels and winged eyeliner. Smear your favorite pastel eyeshadow from your lash line all the way past your crease, depositing more color on the lid. Next, rest your elbow on a flat surface and start lining your eyes from the middle of the eye. Line towards the outer corner and extend the line past the outer corner. Wing it upwards. Go back to the inner corner and line until it meets the middle.
This look is a more advanced version of the look spotted at Jean Paul Gaultier. Hot teal eyeshadow is smudged around the eyes with graphic lines drawn on the crease and under the eye and smoked out with a gunmetal eyeshadow. Not your everyday look for work or school but hot nonetheless.
