wanna look your best at school – especially in front of that cutie
from math class – but sometimes your school’s dress code limits
your fashion and beauty choices. Never fear, chicas: We’ve got the
hottest eyeliner trends that are both gorgeous and dress-code
you’ve got the hang of pencil or crayon liner, you can experiment
with it for a completely different look! Try lining the entire upper
lid, then extend just a bit past your outer corner, slightly curving
upward. Don’t line your bottom lashes, though – it makes your
eyes appear droopy, and no one wants that, right?
colors were in on fall and spring runways this season, so if you’re
bored of your daily beauty routine, switch it up with color! Just one
swipe of a neon liner instantly opens your eyes and adds a pop to
your whole look. There’s no need to spend a lot of money on colored
liner, so try a drugstore brand.

that it’s opposite day
you’re used to lining your top lashes, switch it up and line just
the bottom instead! You’ll make soft liners like gray more
dramatic, especially if you smudge them with a rounded shadow
applicator or a Q-tip. For a super-dramatic look, use a colored
shadow on your entire lid up to your brow bone, and line your lower
lashes with a contrasting color. If you go for the multi-colored
look, go easy on the blush and lipstick, though – you don’t want
to risk entering clown territory, especially on a school day.

a little sparkle
glitter liners can be scary, but the good news is that they’re way
easier to use than regular liquid liners, and can be subtle when
applied correctly. For the best results, use the glitter liner over
what you’ve already done in pencil, staying as close to your lash
line as possible. And one swipe is enough – you’re going to
school, not a concert! Use glitter on just your top lashes and stick
with classic liner colors, not bright ones, for a look that’s fun
without going overboard.
may sound boring, but natural beauty is totally in among celebrities
and professional makeup artists. Stick with a solid, beige-based
shadow and a brown, gray or black liner, or skip the liner
altogether. This is the time to load up on mascara, though, so don’t
skimp on the volume. With a simple shadow, no liner and long, lush
lashes, you’ll look super awake, even if you were up late cramming
for that bio test.
