The go-to method for applying black eyeliner may be a clean, classic, cat eye or a simple kohl rimming—but the A/W 2015 fashion shows in New York, London, Milan, and Paris proved there’s more to statement-making eyeliner than just your regular wings. StyleCracker brings you cheat notes on lining your lashes – the new way – straight off the runway.
What: Bring back the white liner. Have a major sixties moment by thickly lining your upper and lower lash line, go on to extend them at the end. Don’t forget to swipe some white liner on your bottom waterline. Perfect, if you are aiming for an eye-focused look.

What: Can’t stay without your wings? Here’s a new way you can stamp them on. Instead of going broad towards the end, go a bit overboard with flick and extend it to the end of the brow.
