5 edgy new ways to wear your eyeliner


5 edgy new ways to wear your eyeliner

We got plenty of inspiration at the Amazon India Fashion Week

By Tarini Sood  March 20th, 2017

Just wearing a flicked line of black along your lids won’t cut it anymore. If the make-up trends at Amazon India Fashion Week A/W ’17 are anything to go by, then eyeliner is set to get very graphic. The cat-eye liner morphed into sharp bird-eye at Wendell Rodrick’s show and blue made a raging comeback at Péro in a grungy avatar. Models at Namrata Joshipura didn’t shy away from sporting more than three colours and glitter along their lash line.

There’s enough inspiration there to ditch the standard black liner with some bright metallic shades instead.

Eyeliner trends you need to try soon


At Pero by Aneeth Arora, the make-up artists used purple mascara to pump up the grunge-inspired black lids. Instead of drawing on the winged eyeliner with laser precision, use a heavy hand on the eyeshadow to create a dramatic smokey eye.


Electric blue eyes with glitter on the waterline kept things bold at Namrata Joshipura.


A peachy tone on the inner and outer corners brightens up the eye, as demonstrated at Namrata Joshipura.


If you're going to go boldly bohemian like Malini Ramani would like you to, why not extend that sensibility to your eye make-up too? Bold strokes with a liquid liner, concentrating on the inner eye, draw all attention to your peepers.
