White Underliner: The Instant Eye Lift
For obvious reasons, liquid liner isn’t typically part of our poolside beauty regimen, but the Spring ’15 swim collections in Miami have us reconsidering. Yesterday we spotted “underliner” at Mara Hoffman, where models wore virtually no makeup save for a swipe of seafoam along their lower lashes. We noticed the trend again at Minimale Animale, where the look was decidedly more graphic. Thick, chalky streaks were painted below the pupils, then extended out into thick, upward-arching wings. We’ve always rimmed our waterlines with a white or nude pencil to wake up red or tired eyes, but this takes the concept to a whole new level. A touch of black mascara on the top lashes added to the fresh effect. Next time we hit the beach—or perhaps on mornings when caffeine just isn’t cutting it—we’ll be reaching for a waterproof formula (like Make Up For Ever Aqua Liner in Diamond White) and road-testing this instant, eye-opening trick.
