Floating Eyeliner Looks That Inspire


exaggerated-liner-2018The fresh beauty looks showcased at the Resort 2018 fashion shows had our full attention. One beauty look in particular has peaked the interest of many beauty gurus on social media. Floating eyeliner, or floating crease, uses negative space to create a bold look. Eye shadows and eyeliners are applied around the area where the flick would be, or directly on the crease of the eyelid. This creates an outline as opposed to drawing the shape on directly to the lash line of your eye. Using foundation and an eyeliner on top of your neutral shadows will help you to create a clean floating line.

We paired up the perfect eyeliner to accomplish each look below. No matter which option you select, there are countless different versions of floating eyeliner to try. Here are some gorgeous invisible eyeliner looks that will make you want to play with your eyeliner!
