Graphic Eyeliner Is THE Beauty Trend of 2017

Solange Knowles' beauty look.
Allow us to prove it to you.

After seasons of seeing the "natural" look parade down the catwalk at just about every show, Spring 2017's penchant for subversive beauty feels like a breath of fresh air.  And it should!  What better time to reinvent your look and try an eye-catching alternative to your everyday routine than during the season of new life?  Bold takes on eyeliner, whether winged, geometric, or retro, demand the right to be seen and to take up space, reclaiming beauty as an art with which we have the agency to reinvent the ordinary.  Here are some of our favourite takes on this trend - do with them what you will!

What do you think of this article?


I founded Couturesque Magazine when I was 15 years old because like many of my peers, I felt ignored and talked down to by all of the other teen fashion publications out there. I figured that at the end of the day, the people who knew the most about my generation, were the people who belonged to it. The fashion industry is becoming increasingly dependent on the creativity of younger voices who challenge the status quo and make us rethink what we wear and why we wear it. And that is exactly what Couturesque set out to celebrate - authenticity, intelligence, originality, and diversity... in other words, what makes Gen-Z tick. Fast-forward to 2016 and we now have a staff of more than a dozen fashion distruptors contributing to our daily content from all around the globe, 100K+ readers following us from Toronto to New York, to London, Copenhagen, Berlin, Tokyo, and Tel Aviv, and a plethora of big-wig industry fans and collaborators. But what matters to us the most is the responsibility that our publication has to make a positive impact in the lives of those who come across it - we stand against retouching our photoshoots and we stand for sharing the beautiful, individual, complex voices of everyone, especially those who feel marginalized by mainstream fashion media. We hope that you love our site as much as we do and that you take the time to follow us (Facebook / Twitter / Instagram / Pinterest / Tumblr / Snapchat / YouTube) throughout our journey to make fashion accessible to the powerful young adults of today.
