Deconstructed Eyeliner: The Playful, Bold, and Messy Eye Look That Everyone Loves

The latest runway-inspired eyeliner trend is something that all of us lacking artistic precision are going to love. If that stroke of black around your eyes makes you feel safe, awake, and poised there’s a lot more where that came from. The playful, yet bold eyeliner trend that’s quickly gaining momentum is called the deconstructed eyeliner. Exactly as the name suggests, think of an intentionally imperfect line. The messy new trend will bid adieu to all those times you lost your calm when you couldn't get those wings to match.

This statement eyeliner was spotted on the runways at Lakmé Fashion Week 2018, and it's unbelievably easy to recreate. It’s the perfect eyeliner style to sport when you’re stuck in a rut and want to make a bold statement. Forget about all the rules that apply to conventional eyeliner and let your creative juices flow. Coloured eyeliners, glitter eyeliners, metallic eyeshadows, all can be used to create the deconstructed eye. The idea is to scribble, deconstruct, and smudge; the messier, the better!

 

 

So, here are 3 ways you can wear the eyeliner trend without worrying about colouring outside the lines!

Rebel in style

Go bold or go home, right? The perfect example of a statement eye, this deconstructed eye look defies every rule of applying eyeliner. Definitely not for the faint-hearted, this bold eyeliner is bound to make a few heads turn. Give any eyeliner a cream-finish by mixing it with some moisturiser or lip gloss. You could even use a gel eyeliner like the Lakmé 9to5 Naturale Gel Kajal in Black. If you’re feeling exceptionally defiant, use a liquid lipstick like the Lakmé 9to5 Weightless Matte Mousse Lip & Cheek Colour in Crimson Silk to recreate the look.

Colour pop!

Use a bright-coloured eyeliner pencil to enhance the natural beauty of your eyes. Use the Kareena Kapoor Khan By Lakmé Absolute Eye Definer in Cobalt and start scribbling, there’s no right way here. Just remember to think outside the box!

Molten Metal

Nothing to brighten up a dull day like some shimmer and shine. So, use a metallic eyeliner or an eyeshadow to create a fun eye look. Using your finger, apply a little eyeshadow along the inner and corners of your eyes. The Lakmé 9To5 Eye Quartet Eyeshadow in Smokey Glam and Tanjore Rush have all the metallics you will need to create this look.
