A new year is the perfect time to glam up your makeup routine! The easiest way to do so? Bottom eyeliner. Whether for a girl’s night out, Valentine’s dinner, or a fabulous date night, swap out your standard blacks and browns for these chic and festive options. Here’s how to rock gold, teal, and plum at your next soirée.

Another trick to setting off a bold, underlined look? Keep your top lid understated. "When I use a strong shot of color on the bottom lids, I like to keep the top line smudgy with neutrals to not overwhelm the look, I stay in classic shapes and either use browns or blacks on top to give the look some balance. In the end, the neutral tones sort of fall away and the hit of color comes through.”
Tip: Let the top lid chill.
Following the shape of the black line, add a cream or gel bold liner right on top. We recommend Devezin Loose paints as shown above. The line should be the same thickness, or slightly thinner, than the black.
Line the lower water line (the inner rim of your lashes) in teal or turquoise. You can also opt for a long-wear pencil for added staying power. Use the color just on the bottom, where it will be more noticeable.
Lush lashes are the best complement to vibrant color, so load up on a voluminous mascara. Try my Devezin Natural Lush Lash Mascara.
For some, the fear of smeared liner is their biggest reason to forgo trying the trend. If that's you, simply opt for matte shadow, which will stay in place far better than a creamy liner. Just be ready for rouge shadow particles, so do your face makeup last.
