Graphic Eyeliner: Make a Real Statement

Your classic cat eye is beautiful -- but if you're getting bored with the look and want to change things up, you'll love what I created below.  From precise doubled-line eyes, to wings that extend out from the eye's corner anything goes with graphic eyeliner.  If you want to create this graphic eye here's how:
  1. Add a base to prolong the wear of your makeup across the entire lid.
  2. Apply a skin tone eye shadow to the lid and blend through your crease.
  3. Using E.L.F Studio Cream Eyeliner draw a line along the upper lash line and extend the liner outward to create a wing similar to how you create a cat eye.
  4. Using the same cream eyeliner draw a line along the crease and connect it to the wing on the outside corner.
  5. To give the eye some sparkle, apply E.L.F. Liquid Eyeliner in the color copper to the center of the lid between the two lines. 
  6. Go over the liner with a E.L.F Liquid Eyeliner in black to clean up the lines.
  7. Finish off the look with mascara and lashes.
Depending on how dramatic and bold you want to get, graphic eyeliner can make a real statement.
