Seeing Blue And Green – The Latest Eyeliner Trend For Spring

From feline flicks to futuristic sweeps, this season we're embracing colour

Move over boring black because this season, eyeliner is bold, bright and breaking the mould.

Vivid shades of aqua, turquoise and jade green took centre stage on several catwalks and the result was surprisingly chic.

From minimalistic and slightly smudgy under-eye kohl at Stella McCartney, to the dramatic, 60s inspired sweeping flicks at Versus, there’s a style out there for even the most colour-phobic beauty fiends.

And, best of all, precision and technique are not the most important elements to nailing this trend so you can smudge the colour on if clean lines are not your forte!

But if you do want to know how to master the perfect flick, here are our top tips:

  • A gel liner and slanted brush are the best tools for flicks.
  • Holding your eyelid slightly taut, keep the brush as close to your lashes as possible and drag the line out, following your lash line.
  • By keeping your lid taut, you’ll automatically point the flick upwards, therefore avoiding it going straight or downwards.

Et voilà, 50s worthy flicks, every time!
