Graphic eyeliners are the accessory for your eyes this year, and Beauty Advisor Hollis has a reverse graphic liner how-to that is perfect for a night out. Bored of your cat-eye liner? This is also a fun way to switch up your look, by drawing your liner along your lower lashline instead! Lise Watier’s Feline Eyeliner HD has a fine, precise tip that makes it perfect for creating a variety of creative effects- here, Hollis uses the colour Vert, a nice departure from the usual black liner. Give it a try for yourself!
The newest trend in beauty right now is all about giving a boost to the products you already have.
