The Double Graphic Liner was commonly seen at Fashion Week throughout various shows from Nanette Lepore at New York Fashion Week to Mikhael Kale at Toronto Fashion Week 2014. This is probably the most wearable trend this spring that I believe can be pulled off with any eye type.

The look is essentially a strong black liner across the lashline and a white liner just above it, with matte skin and a neutral lip. 

First, I primed my face with Make Up For Ever's Skin Equalizer Radiant (Blue) Primer* and primed under the eyes with Olay Eye Brightening Cc Cream*, one of my favourite products to prime my eyes with. I used Mac's Soft Ochre Paint Pot as a base for the eyelids, and filled in my brows with Anastasia Dip Brow Pomade in Chocolate. I went in with a full coverage foundation, Estee Lauder's Double Wear Foundation in shade 1W2 Sand. This foundation is excellent when it comes to being transfer resistant and will definitely stay on all day, however, the finish is very flawless and it will be obvious that you have foundation on. I use a under-eye concealer that is lighter than my skintone to brighten the area, this one being NYX Hd Concealer in Porcelain. This concealer is so awesome to use with a small brush and then achieve a flawless effect with a Beauty Blender. I then used a pigmented bronzer (Benefit's ever so popular Hoola Bronzer) to get strong bronzed cheekbones, and then lightly dusted it over the rest of my face. Then I generously applied my Rodial Instaglam Illuminating Powder* under the eyes and above the cheekbones. 

For the Double Graphic Liner look, I began by applying Mauve and Sable (a mauve and taupe) in my crease from the Lorac Pro Palette. I then applied the NYX Jumbo Pencil in Milk as a base on my lids. It didn't go on smoothly so I blended it out and re-applied until it was semi-opaque. I continued to darken the crease while re-applying the white pencil, carefully, until I had a smooth line. I blended out the inner corners so the white wouldn't be so vibrant because we want the outer corners to stand out more. 

I then applied Maybelline's Eyestudio Lasting Drama Gel Liner in Blackest Black close to my lash line and slowly builded it, while creating a winged line. I went over the white base with a thinner white liner (Revlon Photoready Kajal Intense Eye Liner + Brightener*) for precision and to enhance the colour. I continued to go over this and the gel black liner until it was opaque and stayed put. I then set the two colours with a matte White and Black eyeshadow from the Lorac Pro Palette. I did leave the lashes bare, partially because I didn't have an eyelash curler with me but also because I realized it brought out the bold contrast of the shadows.

I primed and lightened my pigmented lips with MAC Lip Pencil in Naked. I finished the lips with a mix of 2 shades, a nude and a pink, because I don't own a light matte neutral, which is what I'd prefer to use with this look (Covergirl Lip Perfection Lipstick in 256 Creme*, 395 Darling*).
