For someone who’s pretty basic in terms of everyday makeup like I am, it’s difficult to switch things up – especially when you’ve been doing your makeup the same way for nearly 10 years! Even when I have gotten my makeup done in the past, I have never really adhered to any of the products I’m sent home with. Maybe it’s a comfort zone thing or maybe I just like what I like, but who knows. Nevertheless, this summer I’m going to try out a new makeup trend I’ve been seeing more and more lately – white eyeliner. While the bolder, thicker white liner is probably best saved for the catwalk, I’m definitely intrigued to try it in a more subdued way.
White liner is said to make your eyes appear more open (which I could use for a number of reasons!) and adds subtle contrast with your day-to-day mascara. I would say it adds a more glamorous look than typical black liner too. The subtle look I’m most inspired by is this photo of Maggie Grace – isn’t she a beauty? The perfect summer look, in my opinion. I wouldn’t, however say no to testing out this look – it would be incredibly cutting-edge and chic if applied correctly. To recreate these looks for myself, I chose this NARS eye pencil in Iceberg, however this Napoleon Perdis “Eye Bright” Inner Rim Liner seems pretty perfect too. Below are some other gorgeous whites for you to peruse – click through each product image to shop it!
