“Upside down eye makeup” is a trend that I’ve been obsessing over lately. It sounds kind of crazy, but I promise it’s actually subtle. It involves taking your favorite eye pencil (bonus points if it’s a vivid color like turquoise or burgundy), and lining the lower lash line. Blend with a fluffy brush, and that’s it. Add a couple swipes of mascara and a subtle shimmery base on the upper lid, and you’re good to go. Basically, it’s a fun twist on an otherwise traditional eyeliner style. It’s unexpected, chic, and totally wearable for everyday.

The only catch is that you should probably use a waterproof liner (especially if you have oily skin or worse, seasonal allergies). The last thing you want is a raccoon-like smudge of color on your under eye area. So, with that being said, check out a few of my favorite waterproof liners (in my favorite shades)!

This Urban Decay pencil is super smooth and creamy, yet lasts for hours at a time. I like the shade “Deep End” which is bright metallic aqua. Just apply along the lash line, and then blend down slightly.

Then, there’s this Marc Jacobs waterproof pencil. This shade is called Fine 47 and it’s gorgeous wine red. The gel consistency means the color stays put, perfect for this type of look.
