How To Rock Graphic Eye Liner Styles As Seen On These K-Pop Idols
K-pop girl group STAYC made a strong case for the bold graphic liner look in their latest comeback, “Stereotype”. A fitting statement for their track, “Stereotype” is about not wanting to be seen through the prejudice of society.
Loona’s Kim Lip and Heejin opted for a more subtle take on the trend for their “Paint The Town” music video with abstract eyeliner designs that are more youthful and unconventional. Well-defined brows complimenting their playful eyeliner looks.
If you’re easing into the trend, try using coloured eyeliner pencils like NYX’s Epic Wear Liner Sticks or felt tip pens like the Sephora Collection Colourblock Felt Liner. Start with a simple floating eyeliner like Rosé or try out different shapes like a double wing. For a super crisp line, stick a small piece of tape on your eyelid method to mark out the shape of your wing before filling it in with your eyeliner.
If you’re a seasoned makeup pro, experiment with water-activated “cake” liners (powder formula that turns into a creamy creamy consistency when mixed with water) from Gavissi Beauty or gel liners from Colourpop. To recreate those sharp, precise lines, apply the eyeliner with a nail art brush.
Pro tip: In place of coloured eyeliner, you can also create your fierce flick by mixing eyeshadow with a spritz of setting spray.
