Trend Alert: Heavy on the Liner

OK, pencils down, now who's got the right answer? In this case, it's thick black eyeliner. Each of these women used heavy hands for their black eyes at the CFDA Awards. There's a blurry difference between heavily lined and smoked up, so let's discuss. Kirsten Dunst has the most outlined look as her stroke — even the bottom! — traces the entire eye on the lash line. Ashley Olsen, on the other hand, has equally thick lines, but she blurs the edges into a cat-eye shape for a sultry rock look. Lastly, Heidi Klum falls somewhere in the middle with slight smudges on the bottom, but more definition up top. Whose look do you like best . . . or do you think it all got out of hand?

I do like the look. I learned at a photo shoot the most idiot proof way to get this look. She used a Maybaline Eye Brow pencil in black velvet sharpened to a very sharp point and then she softened it with a lighter to make it apply smoothly. After that she took a lipstick brush and set the liner with MAC black tied shadow. I tried it at home with no prob and went dancing in the Florida heat and it looked great all night! (FYI I can't even put on lipstick without several tries.
