Fall Beauty Trend: White Pencil Eyeliner

I guess since Black Nail Polish is all the rage, it only makes sense that white eyeliner would be in style as well. (well maybe not, but bear with me here). Anyway, that's right, white pencil eyeliner was all over the runways at all the Fall fashion shows from Oscar de la Renta to Dolce & Gabanna.

Of course, with any dramatic makeup trend, there are do's and don'ts to wearing it correctly. According to makeup artist Mally Roncal:

[White eyelinter] can be applied in a thin matte line about 1/3" along upper lash lines, around eyes' inner corners, inside the inner lower rim and just along the lower lash lines. Don't go any lower or it starts looking alien-like

Here are a couple of ones to try that require minimal investment.

Bourjois 2-in-1 Noir & Blanc Eye Pencile, $12, Available here. This one is great because it allows you to try the white eyeliner trend, but if you decide you hate it, you can still use the black side.

One more pick, so

Rimmel Soft Kohl Kajal Eye Pencil in Pure White, $3.19, Available here. This pick is great because the price allows you to try the white liner trend guilt-free!

it's not meant to stand out necessarily, it's to blend and make you look awake. If you wear it on your lower lash line. Also, before Tyra ever mentioned it as her "secret" (I suppose as that's about right as it's not commonly known, as some comments here prove) even so the tip has appeared in some magazine articles before.

White eyeliner is a bit severe. A good choice if you don't want it to look like "too much" but still want the benefits of white eyeliner, check out Senna's Eye Opener. It's more of a soft vanilla color that you apply to only the bottom inner eye. It leaves the eyes looking much brighter. (Just google Senna Eye Opener). Senna Eye OpenerSenna Eye Opener

Will this look good on my skin? I hate how makeup trends always applies to the milk skined models.

You can put in in the corners of your eyes for that awake look.

I remember in High School all the preppy girls wore a thin line of either white eyeshadow or liner. Ugh I hated that look. Partly bc my eyes looked crappy that way. Smokey for me. ~*We FiNd OuT wHaT tHe BaBy Is ToDaY!*~ Go Vote and tell me what you think it may be~

I have worn white eyeliner for years! It makes you look more awake (read: not so hungover...)

Yuck. Well I suppose that's better than the dead lady looks that were all over the runway and the hair hats.

a secret that she talks about all the time. lol it does make your eyes look larger, but its hard not to get it on your lashes. i probably wont try this look, because a go for black lashes, and i cant risk ruining them by being messy with white eyeliner. im sure it will look great on others though!!

If you see close ups of Tyra Banks, she's always wearing white eyeliner on her bottom lids. It's one of her secrets from her former modeling days.
