Silver linings: 10 bold, colourful eyeliner looks you need to try

We’re seeing this bold beauty trend all the time amongst makeup artists and #influencers.

But no matter how many times we say “wow, that’s so pretty” whenever we see someone with colourful eyeliner, we seem to still pick up the same old black eyeliner again and again. Ladies, it’s time to step up and get in on some of that eye candy.

A bold, colourful eyeliner is one of the quickest and most subtle ways to elevate your whole look. Even just wearing a shabby threadbare T-shirt and shorts can look infinitely cool when accompanied by a pair of electric blue wings (on the eyelids, of course). There’s a power to the bold and colourful eyeliner which makes you look as though you’ve got your life together and know what you’re doing. And don’t we all need that disguise every once in a while?

We’ve got you. Here are the 10 best products for that colourful eyeliner magic. Cue: a ton of compliments. 

1. Fenty Beauty Flypencil Longwear Eyeliner

This series comes with 20 different bold colours in matte, shimmer, metallic, and glitter. It’s pretty much limitless, effortless, and, well, all you could really ask for in an eyeliner range. Thanks RiRi.



2. Stila Waterproof Eyeliner in Liquid Snow

Not just for Instagram influencers, white eyeliner is a great elegant-yet-edgy makeup look you should try. All it takes is a bit of confidence: better to go crisp, clear, and bold — or risk a faint Casper-y smudge on your eyes. 



3. Marc Jacobs Beauty Highliner Gel Eye Crayon

It’s been heard on the Grapevine (also the name of this gorgeous colour) that purple eyeliner is universally flattering against every single skin tone and eye colour. Trust this creamy grape-hued liner from Marc Jacobs to prove it to you.



4. Tom Ford Beauty Shade and Illuminate Eye Kohl Duo

Why go for one colour when you can have two? The duo-coloured eye kohl from Tom Ford Beauty is fantastic for shading, blending, or contrasting to highlight the fact you’ve ditched the black eyeliner even more.


5. Make Up For Ever Aqua XL Eye Pencil

This collection comes in 10 party-ready shades of shimmer and glitter. Go bold and go gold for full impact.


6. Sephora Collection Colourful Eyeliner Waterproof

In practical and easy-to-apply packaging, Sephora’s line of waterproof eyeliners are both super bold and super convenient. There’s also a great range of glittery colours, from light blue to purple to green. 


7. Urban Decay heavy Metal Glitter Liner

Its fluid honey texture makes these glitter liners (in 8 amazing pop colours) incredibly easy and fun to put on. There’s the added glossy effect too, giving you a fresher and more three-dimensional look.


8. Pixi Endless Silky Eye Pen Eyeliner

For more earthy colours, Pixi’s line of colourful eyeliner offers mulberry or moss green shades for those who want to try something different but still want a beauty look that works for any occasion.


9. Too Faced Sketch Marker

The Too Faced Sketch Marker is literally like an artist’s felt pen, with the same precision and fun colourfulness. It’s also very long-lasting and waterproof, so you can go about the whole day in perfect colour.


10. Nars High Pigment Longwear Eyeliner

We can always trust Nars for something bold and colourful. Their huge range of eyeliners also include this wonderfully summery hue – the Sunset Boulevard liner is a sure way to bring out the sun wherever you are.
