Fall 2018 is an exciting season for makeup. The typical fall pumpkin spice latte looks are taking a back seat to some big, bold fall makeup trends. (Yay!!)

One of the coolest looks of the season is a rocker-chick, heavy duty liner. Super insouciant, this look is a little wild, very undone, and makes a statement all by itself.

If you are going to channel your inner Kate Moss Rock’n’rolla there are a few rules to play by.
If you have deep set eyes or tend to have dark rings under your eyes this may not be the look for you. Heavy black liner will make deep set eyes look even deeper, and will add emphasis to dark under eyes.
Although skin needs to look bare, naked skin seldom looks great with heavily lined eyes. Bare skin can take on a greyish hue making you look under the weather and cold, detracting from your chic diva hotness. Use a thin veil of foundation to even everything out – a heavy, full cover foundation is out of place with this look, blowing the sense of nonchalance. Keep the complexion soft by using a cream blush. This will reflect a little light and add life to your skin.

To nail this fall makeup trend use a kohl pencil or a soft smudgy pencil, working the color into the lash line first then flaring it out. Either take a clean eye shadow brush or a Q Tip and soften and smudge the liner – it needs to look imperfect. Go over the liner with some black shadow to set it and stop it moving. If the liner is slipping down your face the look is blown!
Finish the look with multiple coats of thickening mascara. My favorites are Charlotte Tilbury Full Fat Lashes, Marc Jacobs Beauty Velvet Noir Major Volume Mascara, Diorshow Blackout and Clarins Supra Volume Mascara.
