Tired of a traditional cat eye? Or maybe you are looking for a little extra glam and drama? Whatever the reason, the floating crease eyeliner is here to help you slay every look, every time.
What is It?
Essentially, the unconventional trend is any line around the eyes that allows for a little extra breathing room, placed more in the eyelid crease than on top of your lash line.
Placing these pigments either in your traditional matte black, or in bright pigments above the lid gives a “floating” illusion between the crease and brow bone, demanding attention to your eyes.
How to Achieve it?
The floating liner trend focuses on creativity, you can play around with shapes, colours and positions. Here is a simple way to achieve the floating crease and to unleash your creativity!
Regardless of whether you want a neutral or bold floating crease, to make sure it comes on evenly start by applying Glow Getter to your lid to prime the surface and provide the perfect base for application. Plus, Glow Getter provides a luminescent sheen which is perfect for extra drama and glow.
To create your floating crease, determine where your actual crease is and grab your fav eyeliner - we’re using Eye Like Options for a sleek black finish. Next, draw an arc shape just beyond your natural crease to get that floating look! We recommend matching your under eye makeup to the top to accentuate it and make bold bolder, so twist out the kohl nib side and apply it on your lower lash line.
Finally, no eye makeup look is complete without that touch of mascara and your eyes are the star of this show so do a top up and you are good to go!
Variations to Try
Swap your colour choices for a neon shade to bring that extra, festival glamour to your lids and calls all attention to your eyes.
Pair your floating eyeliner with a reverse inner corner in a matching shade by blending out a bit of eyeliner on your lower, inner lash line.
Buuut, if you’re like us and believe that the black wing will remain a classic forever, why not combine the two for a chic yet trendy look? To achieve this, draw a wing like you usually would and add a sweeping floating liner to join them together!
One thing’s for certain: Floating liner is all about creativity, so don’t be afraid to embrace the trend whichever way suits you! Can’t wait to see your looks!
