One of the biggest eyeliner trends of 2015 blew up when Kim Kardashian Instagrammed a selfie showing off her interpretation of the turquoise eyeliner trend. If you went nuts for Kim’s photo and want to know how to pull off turquoise eyeliner, read on.
How to Pull Off the Turquoise Eyeliner Trend
We’re loving turquoise eyeliner since it looks super summery and beachy. Plus, the hue looks great no matter what color your eyes are. It’s a universally-flattering tone that makes brown eyes pop and highlights blue eye intensity.
To mimic Kim’s photo, you’ve got to get the eyeliner on your waterline, which is a naturally tricky place for makeup to stay as it tends to water (hence the name). Start with a water-resistant or waterproof creamy eyeliner that will be able to withstand waterline placement.
Working on one eye at a time, drag the eyeliner pencil along the inner rim of your eyes so it hits both the inner rim and the lower eyelashes. Then add a coat of waterproof mascara so your lashes really pop.
If you want to get Kim’s exact look, she revealed that her makeup artist used M.A.C. Chromagraphic Pencil in Hi-Def Cyan. This particular pencil is totally matte with no shimmer. You can choose a shimmer pencil to add another dimension to this high-impact look. Take another cue from Kim’s playbook and leave the rest of your look pretty neutral. Your eyes are sure to make a huge statement and you don’t need anything else to compete with that.
If this is too bold for you, a turquoise eyeliner on the upper lid is a little mellower. Draw the pencil out in a wing shape or smudge the outer corners a little for extra oomph.
We think this look is perfect for summer since it’s super bright and beachy. What other celebrity eye trends are you loving for summer 2015? Happy Independence Day!
