Black eyeliner is a timeless make-up trend that shows itself in ever new variations...
Black eyeliner is one of the most classic, but also one of the most effective make-up trends. Once you've got the perfect curve, you can wear the eyeliner for any occasion. The eyeliner already showed itself this spring with elegant fine lines - in summer and autumn 2021 the timeless eyeliner will be worn in a particularly expressive version.
The eyeliner has been worn by numerous icons over the years. Starting with the Egyptian Queen Cleopatra to the British model Twiggy and singer Grace Jones to actresses like Sophia Loren and Elizabeth Taylor. Today the make-up look completes the collections of international designers: inside.
More is more: Eyeliner as a make-up trend in spring/summer 2021
In the spring of 2021, the spirit of optimism was clearly noticeable - this was followed by the make-up: the black eyeliner showed itself in striking variations. For the Dior spring/summer collection 2021, black-framed eyes, a little mascara, and natural lips were used. At Chanel, on the other hand, the make-up trend was shown in a subtle form and in combination with smokey eyes.
One of the most important versions is currently in use - in the XL format. The eye area is conspicuously emphasized with perfectly drawn cat eyes. For the couture collection, Giambattista Valli shows a black eyeliner that is drawn along the waterline and fills the entire lid. Important: make up the cat's eyes to the end of the eyebrow. The particularly strong, self-confident character of the make-up is thus retained.
Cat eyes are one of the oldest make-up tricks for bigger eyes anyway. Nefertiti and Cleopatra made them famous in ancient Egypt. At that time, copper ore and malachite were still used to achieve the eyeliner effect. Nowadays, liquid eyeliner pencils are particularly suitable for perfectly drawn lines. Courrèges also use black eyeliner for autumn fashion, which covers more of the eyelid and is not just worn like a fine line. The curved shape that protrudes beyond the eyes is also decisive here.
