Last year was all about bold prints and bright colours in fashion, and this year the trend seems to be translating itself into make-up as well. If you’ve been celeb-spotting on Instagram, chances are you’ve seen them sport bold graphic eyeliners. 

From neon colours to glitter, colourful eyeliners have become a hot favourite of celebrity make-up artists and content creators all over social media.


If you’re looking to try a look featuring some bright eye makeup, but want to skip the eyeshadow, these are the products that you must take a look at to add that pop of colour to your looks

Coloured kajals from Mamaearth

Want to switch up your everyday kajal? Go for Mamaearth’s long stay coloured kajals. These pencils are easy to use to line your waterline and also to blend on your eyelid if you’re going for a more dramatic or a smudged eyeliner look. The long-lasting kajal promises an 11-hour stay, and has skincare benefits with chamomile and vitamin C in the ingredient list. 

Pop pigments from #debasreee

If you’re someone whose vibe is neon colour pop, Debasree Banerjee’s brand’s water-activated pigments will be a dream come true for you. These potted pigments are highly versatile and can be used to create eyeliner looks and for body art. Available in 15 bright shades, this is a product that you must add to your vanity routine.

Gel liners from Revlon

Available in six colours that are not too bright, but not run-of-the-mill either, these liner pencils are a great way to dip your toes into the world of graphic eye make-up. The colour pay-off is great and the gel formula makes it long lasting and easily blendable, giving you the chance to create vibrant looks all year round. 

Liquid coloured eyeliners from Swiss beauty

Do you prefer a liquid formula over a pencil to draw the perfect wing? Worry not, you can skip the boring black and brown as well with these bold and bright liquid liners. Draw an elaborate design on your eyes or stick to the classic cat-eye wing but do it in seven gorgeous colours to jazz up your eyes. Plus, these eyeliners are pocket-friendly and water-proof!

Metallic eye pencils from LA Girl

Rich jewel tones plus the sheen of metal — these eyeliner pencils give you the best of both worlds. They can easily be sharpened before every use making sure you get the precision you need and the colour payoff— in eight metallic shades — is bold in just one stroke. The creamy formula glides on well, and they are smudge-proof, water-resistant and stay up to 16 hours too!

Gel liners from M.A.C Cosmetics

These gel liners will make a luxurious addition to your makeup kit. With an intense one-swipe colour payoff, this gel liner has a buildable formula making sure you get the bold eyeliner look perfect every time. Being transferproof, you don’t have to worry about messing up your look and the three versatile colours are great picks for both beginners and those looking for darker contrasting shades for their neon picks.
