Editor’s Obsession: Bright Liquid Liners

My latest beauty obsession is bright flicks of liquid eyeliner.


Ever since I saw the F/W 11 Jil Sander show I’ve been coveting artful strokes of turquoise liner. I’m usually a heavy on the eyes light on the lips kinda girl, but because of the bright eyeliner kick I’m on I’ve pared down my eye makeup to include just liquid liner and mascara.

Summer is a great time to adopt this look because most of these vibrant high-precision liquid liners are waterproof. This means you don’t have to worry about creasing, fading or worse, makeup melting down your face because of the sweltering heat.

Would you try a cat-eye in a bright colour? If so, what hue?
