While more neutral shades of black and brown eyeliner are mainstays in the makeup bag of every beauty guru, this season is about experimenting with on-trend pastel and neon eye makeup. Fitting Spring 2017’s trends, bold and bright eyeliner can easily add a pop of colour to just about any eye look. From eye-brightening peach tones to sultry metallic rose gold, here’s our roundup of five punchy and vibrant eyeliner options to experiment with now.
Colour Buckat Mirro Mirror Gel Liner in 10 Melodic Shine Orange, $10: Many of us may stay away from the often unflattering shade of orange. However, when worn in moderation in the form of a liner, this fiery hue can really make your eyes pop. This particular gel liner from Colour Buckat is said to offer a slight shimmer which just might make your eyes catch the light and sparkle.
Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil in Deep End, $25: Bring out your inner mermaid with an aquamarine eyeliner this spring. Even if you aren’t swimming the depths of the ocean, aquatic eyes are always en vogue for the gradually warming temperatures. This deep blue liner from Urban Decay promises to be soft, creamy and long-wearing.
Too Faced Sketch Marker Liquid Art Pencil in Papaya Peach, $26: Peach eyeliners are a quick and easy way to make you look awake on those sleep-deprived days, and can also enhance an olive or tanned complexion. This flesh-toned liquid liner from Too Faced is said to be inspired by Japanese calligraphy pens. The waterproof formula and flexible tip claim to create brush-like strokes and offer a sleek application as a result.
Khol Couture Waterproof Retractable Eyeliner in Lilac, $30: If liquid liners are too extreme for your tastes, turn to kohl eyeliner as a smooth solution instead. For springtime, cheery shades of pastel purple can easily lighten your makeup look of the day. This lilac shade from Givenchy claims to offer a waterproof pigment-rich formula that is said to resist humidity and glide seamlessly onto your lid.
Tarte Make Believe In Yourself: Limited-Edition Tarteist™ PRO Glitter Liner in Rose Gold, $31: You may already own a rose gold dress, watch or clutch, but have you ever considered bringing this pretty metallic hue into your beauty look? Tarte’s new limited edition product offers a rose gold eyeliner on one end, and also boasts a glitter top coat on the other side. The eyeliner can be used to create a more subtle and wearable effect, while a swipe of glitter can elevate your metallic eye to a new level for the evening hours.
