From the precise winged liners at Fendi to a two-toned lid at Elie Saab, this bold hue has helped define a major makeup moment. Adding an extra pop of color to your face is a great way to boost your beauty look, and this summer, aqua liner is right on trend.
Makeup artist Pat McGrath recommends blending the icy tone with another cool shade to add depth and make it more wearable. For darker skin tones, she suggests aquamarine mixed with teal and green, but if you’re fair, try a lighter aquamarine liner with a more violet-based blue shadow.
To get the look at home simply line your lower waterline by looking straight ahead in the mirror, gently pull down on your lower lash line and run your pencil along the waterline. To help make the liner stick you can lightly brush on some powder.
