3 Ways to Step Up Your Eyeliner Game

Written by emilyc

When it comes to eyeliner, one must venture beyond black. The possibilities are endless, really. In the words of Lindsay Lohan circa Mean Girls, “the limit does not exist.” Don’t shy away from color like the timid, safe people on those HGTV home makeover shows. Don’t discount metallic eye accents just because you’re not a college student going to a rave or music festival of some sort. Don’t be afraid to push boundaries like Miley Cyrus’ hair or Amanda Bynes’ face piercings. Let 2013 be the year of your eyeliner renaissance. Here are 3 easy steps toward rebirth:


Candy-Colored Cat Eyes

This is an easy way to update an old classic. Opt for an unexpected shade to really step up the eyeliner game.
