Eyeliner is a girl’s best friend. From defining our eyes to adding just the right amount of drama, no look is ever complete without that perfect black flick.

While winged eyeliner is a classic favourite, it can get pretty redundant sporting the same style every day. But when you have a pigmented pen at hand, there’s no limit on the number of styles you can create. A new eyeliner trend that’s been gaining momentum for its quirkiness is the floating crease eyeliner. What’s that, you ask? Well, instead of drawing a graphic line on your lash line, you draw one of the creases of your eyes. Whacky, no?

Here’s how to ace the look:

How to create a floating eyeliner:

Step 01: Primer Apply a tiny amount of primer on your lids. This will help create a smooth canvas for your liner to glide on without any tugging and help it stay in place all day long.

Step 02: Apply the base colour all over the lid. Then, take the lightest shade from your eyeshadow palette and pack it on the centre of your lids to make your eyes pop.

Step 03: Time for eyeliner Remember: Placement is key. Keep your chip up, but look down into your mirror so you have a clear view of your eye socket. Lightly trace the outline of the socket with a liner and once you’re satisfied with the placement, draw another line over it.

Step 04: Use the same liner on the lower lash line too To add more drama to your look, apply the same eyeliner on your lower lash line too. Blend it properly for a softer look.

Step 05: Add some mascara Apply a few coats of mascara to give your eyes some extra definition and to open them up.
