The eyes have it in this beauty editorial about upping your liquid liner game
For the ins and outs of the daily hustle, women tend to fall back, time and again, on the same looks using the same makeup. There’s nothing wrong though with being loyal to your go-to everyday makeup. The natural-looking kohl liner for some, the subtle cat eye and mascara pairing for others: preferences surrounding these fail-safe looks are personal, unique to each individual and besides, finding your personal fail-safe formula is an advantage. The only downside is it tends to take the fun and imagination out of the experience.

An often-forgotten fact: makeup is art you create the moment you start painting, lining, gliding that brush and blending. With that, we leave the safe behind for a hot second and dive right into something bolder, more striking, more daring and in-your-face graphic.
“Warning: Graphic Content” is a beauty editorial starring blue-eyed stunner Shannice Bishop who flaunts graphic eye makeup in images captured by Renzo Navarro. The beauty story is a look into the many different ways to approach liquid eyeliner, a beauty item with endless potential but sparingly used. Harsh lines, subtle smudging, a fresh perspective on the old-fashioned cat eye: the looks created by makeup artist Rochelle Lacuna using Revlon’s ColorStay Exactify Liquid Liner definitely let the eyes do the talking. In this beauty story, there’s the full range of colors, too: Open Mulberry, Mermaid Blue, Intense Black and Sparkling Black.
Rebel against convention and don’t be afraid to draw
outside the eye area. Think of this as broadening your canvas.
Ditch the eyeshadow for this one. Create a bold cut crease beauty look with liquid eyeliner instead.
Trace right above the fold of the eye using a precise applicator to get the perfect arc.
… and think outside the box.
How else are dynamic, abstract beauty looks created?
Make those peepers pop by drawing on shapes that highlight them.
Here’s a smoky eye with a twist—and tons of shimmer:
Trace beneath the lower lash line with the Revlon ColorStay Exactify Liquid Liner in “Mermaid Blue.”
Pile it on, layer and smudge as you go.
Meanwhile, trace the upper lash line with a black gel eyeliner to tightline.
Not all cat eyes have to be filled in. Achieve an equally dramatic look by tracing the outlines of the traditional cat eye wing and leaving it as is. Enhance and elongate the eye even further by tracing along the inner corner as well.
