All the covetable celebrity eyeliner looks you'll want to copy
In every shape and shade you can imagine

Eyeliner is like the Lady Gaga of makeup – every time you think you know exactly what to expect, it goes and flips the script, reinventing itself yet again as the freshest thing around.
But while it definitely helps that beauty brands have become accustomed to releasing liners in every colour and consistency under the sun, it’s the celebrities that embrace playful liner looks (and the makeup artists that create them) that we have to thank for the endless amount of inspiration we’re blessed with.
So, in celebration of eyeliner and everything it’s done for us (AKA a lot), we’re rounding up the best celebrity liner looks to grace the ‘gram, all the way from subtle swipes of classic black to bold neon moments and glorious graphic wings…
The magic of a slick of holographic liner like Bieber's? In the shade it's a stunning iridescent silver, but in the sun it transforms into a magical pastel rainbow. Fun, right? She certainly thinks so: "Had a little too much fun with my glam tonight," she captioned the post. But no, Bieber doesn't just have the steadiest hands in the world, this liner look is actually the work of stickers; precisely Simi & Haze's Eye Player Sticker Book ($74.48 at Simi & Haze). Unfortunately, they only offer U.S. shipping, but you can find similar styles here.

The beauty mogul recently debuted a sharp negative space wing eyeliner look to announce the official relaunch of Kylie Cosmetics. TBH we don’t know if we’re more excited about the thought of new makeup or this absolute banger of an eye moment. But what we do know is that we’re definitely going to be trying our darndest to recreate the look in our downtime. Watch this space...

Dove Cameron channeled her inner Bratz doll for the music video of her latest single “Taste of You”. The perfectly manicured eye look tapered to a point at her inner corner giving her that covetable feline-shaped smokey eye. We think we will be dreaming about this eyeliner for years to come.

The popstar took time out of her busy schedule (usually spent hyping up BFF Saweetie) to school us all on how to nail the eff out of some avant-garde messy liner in a standout shade of cornflower blue. Let's be real, the woman is basically Picasso.

We never thought eyes being black and blue would be chic, but hell, Kendrick's done it. "Had my makeup done for the first time in a year. Got home and took selfies for an hour like a true lunatic," she captioned her Instagram Story.

Sure, celebs have access to the top makeup artists in the industry, but sometimes a DIY touch is all you need (as Hudgens proved with this white liner look she sampled at home). "Did some fun liner today," she shared via Instagram Stories.

The To All The Boys actress donned an electric slash of neon blue eyeliner during the film franchise’s latest press junket. The flash of colour was neatly tucked away behind a delicately fanned set of falsies. Subtle but stunning.
