The fashion community has since been obsessed with reproducing the trends spawning new multi colored eyeliner pencils in the past year from favorite brands Make Up For Ever and Colourpop. Here’s you’re no-fail guide for creating the latest spring trend.

Place It in Your Waterline
It’s time to break the beauty rules. By nature, pastel eyeliner is more experimental than your average black liner which is why it can be placed in the waterline with no fuss . When applied in the waterline, the right shade of pastel opens up you eye shape. You’ll get style bonus points for adding a white pencil to the inner corner.

Complement your Eye Color
Unlike the metallic liner trend (they are neutrals after all), there’s a little bit more color theory behind picking out your ideal shade of pastels. There’s a lot of power into contrasting your eyes to create a look. Do a little research and find the best shade to complement your eye color.

Go Monochromatic
If we learned anything from Marc Jacob’s Spring 2019 show, monochromatic looks are the way to go. Use a pastel liner in the same color family as your wardrobe as an unconventional way to accentuate your monochromatic ensemble.
