Gone are the days when going bold with makeup is limited to the runway. With tons of Instagram trends and Snapchat-inspired beauty looks making its way into the streets, we can say that beauty looks have definitely gone a long way. But in contrast to foundation, contour, and even lip colour, there's nothing more dynamic when it comes to eyeliner strokes.

Giving the subtlest or boldest eyeshadow looks with dimension and shape, the liner frames the entire beauty look to its full effect. So as we welcome fall, we've got the liner looks that's enough to push your winged tips to its limits!

Perfect for framing and highlighting your eyes, blackout is a popular trend in various runways for Fall/Winter 2016. This modern-goth look is the way to go for those who want an eyeliner look that's bold yet simple and wearable. In contrast with the smoky-eyed look, this is achieved by layering the liner thick all over the outline of your eyes instead of going for a blurry effect.

If you want a scene-stealer look but don't have the time to work on your eyeshadow, then try swapping that black liner for something with a pop of colour. Go for a solid shade like blue if you're feeling adventurous or swipe on a some gold for some glam -- either way, it's a great trick to step up your wing minus the effort.

Don’t get us wrong, we love drugstore makeup; especially when they are able to act as dupes for a pricier product. But when it comes to matte eyeshadow palettes, we’re head over heels for the luxury versions. Why? Because more often than not, these luxe palettes are buttery, pigmented, and easily blendable. Their drugstore counterparts, on the other hand, can never quite get their formulas to match them.

Since there are a ton of matte eyeshadow palettes in the market today, we decided to make it easier for you by letting you in on our favourites. Below we have a list of the palettes we would gladly spend the extra bucks on and know that you will love as well – whether you’re a beginner who wants to create natural looks, or you’re a beauty junkie that can’t wait to create a smokey eye for Girls’ Night Out!
