Colourful eyeliners: 10 of the best

A line of dark kohl is a fail-safe, but experiment with brighter hues to make a dramatic impact

If you look at the summer catwalks, it was flush with eyeliner; graphic, bold and colourful. The fail-safe black kohl has taken a backseat and this summer, it’s all about embracing colour. You can blame Euphoria and those pesky kids with their trendy glittery, shadowy, Y2K makeup that pushed this trend. But you don’t need to stray into the realm of pastels and pearlescent if you want to try out this look. There are subtle yet vivid options on the market that will give you a mood-boosting pop of colour. If you’re feeling apprehensive about it, use something that blends with your skin tone. Try pinks for paler skin and goldens for olive and darker skin tones – then work your way up to the punchy palettes. If you’re bringing attention to the eyes, it’s essential to have a tidy brow. A swoop of clear brow gel will do wonders to bring together this look. Why not make your eyes pop? Make the Euphoria gang proud.
