Autumn/Winter 2012 Eyeliner Trend

by - August 28, 2012

According to Vogue, a major eyeliner trend for this upcoming autumn and winter is using black liquid liner to create graphic effects.

Various designers have already been seen utilizing this trend but my personal favorite are the minimalist ones. I think the eyeliner just creates such an interesting look that really focuses on "bare" eyes. Plus, if you're into bold lips this season, the minimalist eyeliner will help balance the face out.

I just want to say that I'm not a makeup expert and I barely wear makeup myself so all of these tips and suggestions are just my own opinion and also based on information I read about through Vogue and see on Youtube!

So, if you'd like to see the article on Vogue, click here!

LOOK #1

Tom Pecheux from Altuzarra created this parallel line look and added a little bit of bluish brown eyeshadow on the inner corners. Love the bit of eyeshadow because of how it adds a little extra shine without being overly blatant like a white eyeshadow would be.

LOOK #2

Lucia Pieroni at Aquascutum opts for a modern cat eye by squaring off the edges. Beautifully frames her eyes. Love this look.

LOOK #3
Andrew Gallimore at Erdem draws tiny triangles at the corner of each eye, creating a lovely subtle but compelling look. Definitely my favorite of the bunch.

LOOK #4
Yadim at Kenzo decided to do a classic line but blunted the edges with a q-tip and makeup remover. Brilliant.

LOOK #5
Val Garland at Mary Katrantzou made this wicked cool geometric look with the eyeliner, leaving the eyelid space empty and the face bare.

These looks would be so much fun to try out! I'm not the most experimental when it comes to makeup. My go-to eyeliner style is a subtle winged out look or if I'm feeling dramatic, I'll opt for a cat eye. But that's it.

What kind of eyeliner trends are you into? Which of these did you like the best? Comment down below :)
