Go freestyle with your strokes and draw outside the lines to make your peepers new works of art.

Kat Von D Beauty’s Ink Well Long-Wear Matte Eyeliner is designed for artistic strokes—use it at a slight angle, like a calligraphy pen. Its ergonomically designed wand ends at a felt tip for crisp, precise delineation. No matter how budge-proof the formula, always set your strokes with a powder, like Hourglass’ Veil Translucent Setting Powder, so there will be no smudging and ruining the shape. Hood, Versace.

When creating a large, solid eye look, the trick is to first draw a precise outline of the graphic shape you want, then colour it in—a thin line is so much easier to erase and correct than a block of black. Start by prepping lids with Pro Filt’r Amplifying Eye Primer and allowing that layer to dry for a minute. Then go in with Flyliner Longwear Liquid Eyeliner in Cuz I’m Black—both by Fenty Beauty—adding pressure on areas that require a more dramatic line. Shade in with the brand’s weightless Stunna Lip Paint Longwear Fluid Lip Color in Uninvited, a smooth jet black hue with a luminous matte finish.

Keep eyes the only focal point when doing bushy brows and big lashes. For arches, all you need to add volume is to use Anastasia Beverly Hills’ Clear Brow Gel. Then fill in any gaps with the super thin Brow Blade Waterproof Eyebrow Pencil & Ink Stain by Urban Decay. As for lids, generously line them with Dior’s Diorshow On Stage Liner in 091 Matte Black, before building and blurring out the lines with Crayon Eyeliner Waterproof Noir in 094 Trinidad. Proceed to stick Huda Beauty’s Classic False Lashes onto lightly crimped eyelashes, and finish with luscious brushes of Tarte’s Light, Camera, Lashes 4-in-1 Mascara.

Take your regular cat-eye and flip it on its head—literally. Extend your winged tip from the eyeliner along your lower lashes instead, and witness what a difference this simple twist can make. Sharp, smooth and matte, Benefit Cosmetics’ Roller Liner Liquid Eyeliner boasts super-smooth application so there’s no dragging of skin, and its formula promises not to flake, bleed or smudge. For the bold, draw another curved line where you’d ordinarily do your cut-crease eye shadow technique, at the centre of the lid for an eye-widening illusion.
