Julie teen covered all of the teen fashion from the Teen Choice Awards yesterday (my best-dressed pick? T. Swift), but when I took a look through the photos from the event, I saw one thing in common with almost every female attendee: black eyeliner, and lots of it. I think even Justin Bieber had some on. I instantly recalled my own formative teenage years, during which I managed to convince myself that I was unpresentable without lashings of the stuff (in pencil form, tip heated by a lighter, natch) in and around my already-small eyes. Why did I do this, and perhaps more importantly: why does every girl between the ages of thirteen and eighteen do this at some point? Tell me: is it just me — and all these teens — or were you, too, a teenage victim of this trend?

Beauty Do Or Don’t: White Eyeliner?

I don’t really “do” white eyeliner. As far as its eye-brightening properties go, I find a nude pencil to look infinitely more natural and actually open up the eye, rather than just looking like, well, you’re wearing white liner! To be honest, I’m a little bit afraid of using white, and I’m not entirely sure of its place in the makeup spectrum. Should it be worn on the inner rims? The inner corners? The lower lash line? How about on the top, like you would wear a black or colored liner? So many questions.

Julie and I are generally on the same page when it comes to beauty trends, but the white liner craze is one that we disagree on. She thinks it’s cool and wearable; I think it should be, for the most part, left to the pros, lest things get really tacky really fast. This trend may be better suited to the darker-skinned among us, whose complexions are flattered by pale tones, whereas for me it’s like putting white on white on white. Would you be interested in giving this runway look a whirl, or are you fine sticking with tried-and-true blacks and browns? [Beauty Bender]

Eyeliner, where have you been all my life? I have enough eyeshadows and eyeshadow palettes to keep me going until 2036. But after an unremarkable experience with a plain brown MAC eyeliner, I gave up on it.

My mistake. While I usually use a kickass BECCA eyeliner, which smudges beautifully and lasts all day, I’m also rather partial to Avon’s Glittersticks Diamonds eyeliners. Their twinkle is subtle, not “Rock Of Ages,” and it’s beyond easy to apply. Just try not to think about how the name sounds like a Care Bear. Keep reading »

I am half of a woman without an expertly flicked, crisp matte black cat eye. I am one quarter of a woman with said cat eye, smudged, smeared, or generally melted into my eyelid. Believe me, I love a good grungy look (like, more than you even know), but when it comes to my liquid liner, I am not screwing around. Keep reading »

As any good party girl who’s ever passed out in her eyeliner already knows, sleeping with your makeup on doesn’t necessarily have to be the worst thing. Take, for example, the style icons of the swinging ’60s — Brigitte Bardot, Anna Karina, Edie Sedgwick, et al. — who knew then what it seems we’re just finding out now: smudgy is sexy. Keep reading »

I have a really hard time buying basics. If I go to the store to buy a black tank top there is a high probability I will walk out with a sequined cocktail dress. The same goes for makeup. For example, last week I went to Ulta to pick up some moisturizer and other boring things, and walked out with a $20 sparkly teal eyeshadow pencil. You know what though? Sometimes I’m really glad I have absolutely no self-control, because this stuff is awesome… Keep reading »
