One can never stop admiring the immense effect makeup has on each woman, helping her accentuate her best facial features, reveal her inner goddess and show off her hidden rebellious character. Eyeliner is perhaps the most powerful tool in this respect, as it manages to give so much depth and dimension even to the simplest looks. While the traditional black eyeliner will always be a makeup classic, it’s always exciting to try new shades and new trends that our favorite beauty brands and makeup artists bring forth. To give some color and interest to the monotonous and gloomy fall looks, top beauticians in the world present the bold rainbow eyeliner as one of the hottest fall 2014 beauty trends, revealing the maximum playfulness and drama it can add to your looks. Embrace the smashing and statement-making effect bright blue, dark green, purple and even red eyeliner can have on your original party makeup looks this fall!
The use of brightly colored eyeliner isn’t something new this fall, and thanks to various brands rainbow eyeliner has even managed to become yet another makeup classic. What makes this product so unique this season is the new ways of using it and the new creative looks you can come up with taking your inspiration from the runway. Colored eyeliner does look bizarre when applied carelessly for the deliberately messy look. On the other hand, you can create mysterious, elegant and expressive looks that are super fresh adding a touch of a rich color to your eye makeup and sticking to neat lines mostly.
While the vibrant effect rainbow eyeliner can have on your looks makes it appropriate for party makeup styles mostly, there are certainly perfect color combos and slightly muted colored eyeliner options that work perfectly for day looks too. Such everyday looks could be seen at Valentino’s fall 2014 show, where a very delicate tone of gray eyeliner was applied both on the upper and lower lids of the models to add a big dose of femininity and tenderness to the models’ appearance. So instead of trying the traditional black or brown eye pencils and eyeliner, you may try to be innovative and discover the versatility of the gray tone instead.
Bolder and brighter colors are surely meant for special occasions. Such party-ready looks created with the help of colored eyeliner were presented by Kenzo, for example, where we saw an intense cobalt blue eyeliner applied in a bold cat eye style. Christian Dior’s fall show brought the mermaid looks watercolor effect blue eyeliner managed to create. At Giles, we saw a more sophisticated and effortless makeup style created through the use of a blue eye pencil applied on the lower lid.
Graphic and bizarre black and red lines applied on the upper and lower lids managed to add so much drama to the all-nude and minimalist looks of the models during the Anthony Vaccarello show. Despite the evident simplicity of this eye makeup, it still looks so festive ready, being not the most perfect option for everyday wear.
Altuzarra’s and Badgley Mischka’s fall shows redefined the power of the most autumnal shade – gold, used as the most ideal color for creating party and day-to-day makeup looks. While in the first case, gold eyeliner was used alone for a more minimalist outcome, the second look demonstrated the beautiful affair of gold and black, leading to super elegant party makeup looks.
Chanel’s fall show brought forth various interpretations of the colored eyeliner, presenting looks featuring a neon pink tone and ones showing the stunning effect green eyeliner can create when matched with metallic eyeshadows. Still, it’s Givenchy’s white eyeliner used to brighten up the looks and make the eyes appear larger that triumphs this fall when it comes to the most wearable and versatile day makeup styles crated through colored eyeliner.
As it’s with any makeup, for creating perfect looks with eyeliner you need to know the makeup application basics. So always start on a fresh and clean skin, applying some eye primer first for the long-lasting and crease proof looks. You need to stick as close to your lash line as possible, this way making the eyelashes visually appear fuller at the same time coming up with the most flawless eye looks.
From the classic cat-eye and smokey looks to bold Egyptian arrows, the fall 2014 trend of colored eyeliner brings countless creative options of adding color to your eye makeup. So just go for the look that best matches your personality and be the new trendsetter of the season!
