The Graphic Eyeliner Look Is The Ultimate Fall Beauty Trend

It's the floating crease for me.

Beauty & Fashion

As the saying goes, there is nothing new underneath the sun. So it comes as no surprise that something as groundbreaking as the graphic eyeliner look trend from a couple of years ago is making its rounds again as a must-try beauty trend for the fall season. Saying goodbye to the traditional thick-wit-it non-floating winged liner and hello to the new wave of if-it's-up-then-it's-up-then-it's-stuck eye makeup looks is the ultimate fall beauty move. It's the floating crease for us.

In a 2017 interview with Refinery29, makeup artist Katie Jane Hughes described the look as a "graphic, Twiggy-like line between your lash line and brow." She continued, "It's different from a cut crease in the way that it's graphic and simple, rather than heavily blended and layered"

And if our timelines have any say, the graphic eyeliner look is here to stay. Below are graphic eyeliner looks that have us clicking "save" for our future FOTDs.

I can’t be the only one who has the sex drive of the Energizer Bunny. Upon my research to figure out why I felt like a cat in heat, I discovered several theories surrounding women and our sex drives–including one that says the concept of having a sex drive is a myth altogether.

If you have been on social media for any significant amount of time this year you may have come across women saying that they are in their “villain era.” For these women, being a villain means embracing the negativity and judgment from others that comes when you say “no” to people, and living your life unapologetically. For them, being a villain means letting the chips fall where they may when you no longer allow other people’s ideas about you to restrict you from living the life that you want and deserve.
