This fashion week eyeliner made the beauty headlines. Whether it was bold, catlike, coloured, metallic, graphic, geometric or smudged, from Erdem to Vivienne Westwood it was out in force.

Close Set Eyes

To accentuate and give them a wider appearance, apply Shiseido's Luminizing Satin Eye Colour £23.50 in the inner crease of your eye. Next, apply an eye liner, culminating to a chunky flick in the outer corner. Use the jet black liquid eyeliner such as Lord and Berry’s Forever Liquid Eye Liner Black Black £15.00. Its gel formula and precision brush glides on gently yet sure packs a punch.

Wide Eyes

If you’re blessed with a Sarah Hyland/Mila Kunis-esque set, you might as well go big or go home (literally). Give them an extra lift by applying a white eye liner on your lower lid using a soft kohl pencil. Finally, lengthen your eyelashes to make your eyes appear fuller by applying a few coats of Chanel's Inimitable Intense Mascara Multi Dimension Mascara £24.90.

A dramatic cat's eye is always super striking on asian eyes. Use a light brown pencil (Laura Mercier's Kohl Eye Pencil £16.50) will compliment skintones and provide a fresh take on the geometric shape.
