Hunger’s guide to nailing the pop art eye trend

Make your mark.

[I]’ve always been pretty stringent when it comes to my eye-makeup: a slick of Chanel’s black liner and perhaps a bit of khol underneath for extra definition. The goal is Winona Ryder’s smudged-but-not-bedraggled trademark 90s beauty note that looks a bit “lived-in” (with varying success rates, of course). That was until I discovered Christian Louboutin’s Oeil Vinyle Luminous Ink Liner a few months ago, in a surprisingly wearable yet rich pink-red tone. Which actually manages to last the entire day – hurrah! The bright-eyed look is set to takeover the statement red lip next season too.

Dior AW18

At Dior last month, Peter Philips take on bright eyes was very surreal sixties kitsch, reflective of the rebellious spirit within the collection. “I wanted to create an eye that displayed colour and played with the shades of the sunglasses,” explains Philips. “I used the new Diorshow on stage liner (available to buy May 2018) to draw a line of colour on both the upper and lower lash lines. Green, yellow, red, pink, blue and grey – all the colours are there.”


To DIY the statement rainbow liner AW18 trend before it goes mainstream? You can mix and match a few colours to create a Matty Bovan paint box palette effect, simply draw a subtle flick for a more relaxed vibe or match with your eyeshadow.
