Autumn/Winter 2013 Makeup Trends: Eyeliner

So eyeliner is BIG this season and it's here to stay for S/S 2014. Make up artists at Anna Sui and Moschino got inventive with pencil and liquid liners by using them as eyeshadow to fill in the whole lid. If you wanted to try something that looked a little softer, at Michael Kors dramatic cat eyes were blended into sockets and paired with nude lips and sleek ponytails. Bored of black? Take inspiration from Dior who opted for silvery, ice blue winged eye liner. I love this trend as it suits all eye-shapes and looks great day or night! Whether you're going for subtle wisps or graphic blocks, here are some of my top eyeliner picks to get you ready to line___

A.K.A Cosmetics Eyeliner in Grey Blue £7 The small brush makes this really easy to get a precise line. The ' Grey Blue' shade makes a nice change from black eyeliner whilst still being really wearable. The staying power for this is great, but i do need to apply to coats two achieve a block colour.
Makeup Atelier Paris Cream Cake Liner £12.50* I found the best way to use this solid eyeliner is with a wet brush,. This glides on smoothly and dries quickly to leave an intense black line. 
Cargo Texas Liner £19.50*(with mascara) The first product I've tried from Cargo and i really like it! As you can tell from the photo's above it has quite a thick tip, making it perfect for re-creating the look at Anna Sui. 
Collection Extreme 24 hour felt tip liner £2.99 The nib has just the right amount of flex to it, not too hard that it's difficult to apply. The 24 hour claim is waaay too much. I'd say this lasts around 5 hours before needing to touch up. This also comes in purple,teal and blue if you're feeling creative! 
Eyeko Skinny Liner £10.00* My favourite liquid liner, ever! This lasts all day with no need for touch ups, leaves an intense colour and it super easy to use. Eyeko have recently launched some metallic shades to their collection if you wanted to get the Dior A/W '13 look! 
Collection Faststroke Waterproof Eyeliner £2.99 I needed a waterproof eyeliner so i thought i'd give this one a go. The formula to this is a lot more watery than any of the others mentioned above. I have to apply a few coats of this to reach full opaque-ness. This is very long-lasting but not that waterproof - sorry Collection!

Will you be trying the eyeliner trend this Autumn? Make sure you check out my other A/W makeup trend posts here and here


  1. Love these photos! Winged liner is one of my favourite beauty looks :) x


    Check out my giveaway - Win a MAC lipstick of your choice!

  2. I'd advise against actually using the Collection 2000 waterproof eyeliner in the pool/etc. I did as a test and it decided to sort of chip/flake off of my eyelids...gross! But I do LOVE their felt-tip liners, Maybelline's gel eyeliner is my absolute FAVE though.


  3. A cat eye is my default and need a new eyeliner so will check out the eyeko - thanks for the shortlist!
