Beauty restricted from the nose-up means one thing; it’s time to get experimental with new eyeliners


If it’s experimentation you’re after when it comes to eyeliner, you can’t really do better than the jewelled metallic two-toned wings worn at the AW20 Altuzarra.

eyeliners

It’s the perfect futuristic eyeliner inspiration to take you out of your cat-eye comfort. Ready to try it? These five new eyeliners are hard-workers and here to help.

MAC Powerpoint Eye Pencil Frosted Firework, €18.50

Make your eyeliner a bit cyber with MAC’s new double-ended Frosted Firework eyeliners. They’re pearly, metallic shades that don’t budge with a soft shimmer.

IT Cosmetics Superhero No Tug Gel Eyeliner, €21.64

If you really are entirely unskilled when it comes to eyeliner, the key is to use a gel one it’s smooth, it glides on, it doesn’t tug. It will draw exactly where you intend it too. Still wary? Try just a touch of the IT Cosmetics Superhero eyeliners in the inner corner of the eye to lift your whole look.

Charlotte Tilbury Eye Colour Magic Liner Duo in Super Blue, €28

Whether you like it or not, blue eyeliner is back. It’s partly to do with Princess Diana, and a lot to do with the AW20 shows, with washes of bright blue on eyes at Atlein, delicate dashes of duck egg at Ulla Johnson and sweeping pastel arches at Maison Margiela. This inky midnight metallic blue from Charlotte Tilbury will keep you free from the hangover of 80’s blue eyeliner, but her copper, maroon and khaki eyeliner duos are just as good.

Morphe Liquid Liner Black Out, €14

Cult beauty behemoth Morphe has landed on our shores via Brown Thomas and Arnotts and if you aren’t swayed by their pigment power, supernova palettes or mammoth brush collection, look to their affordable everyday essentials – like this liner, are all must-haves.

Urban Decay Stoned Vibes 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil, €22

The Urban Decay Stoned Vibes eyeliners are super-creamy, highly pigmented and extremely blendable eyeliners, meaning they can be worn as highly-pigmented eyeshadows too. With such a great shade range, wear them smeared all over the lid for high-impact or just dotted in tiny details.
