Graphic eyeliner is a great way to instantly up your look’s drama factor. You can try any color (even holographic), eyeliner type, and design. All it takes is a sprinkle of creativity. Ahead, see how celebs like Chrissy Teigen, Kendall Jenner, and more sport the artsy aesthetic.

For the People’s Choice Awards in 2018, makeup artist Mary Phillips adorned the area around Kendall Jenner’s eyes with little flicks of green. The look was cool — and totally unexpected.

For this look, Priscilla Ono used shiny gold foil to create a mirroring effect on Megan Thee Stallion’s creases. The futuristic vibe was paired with ‘90s-style lip liner.

Lucy Boynton is no stranger to a graphic eye. For the SAG Awards in 2019, makeup artist Jo Baker drew a thin, black arch on her lids for a ‘60s vibe.

Doja Cat sported nonlinear lines on her creases — in electric blue, no less — for a funky twist on the graphic trend.

Grown-ish star Yara Shahidi sported pastel blue liner on the inner corners of her eyes and traced the creases of her eyelids outward for a dramatic cat eye.

Janelle Monáe matched the snow-themed set at Chanel’s Fall 2019 show, sporting a fierce, exaggerated cat eye in white liner.

Makeup artist Kristine Studden drew white liner on the lash line and connected it into a thick line on the crease for Chrissy Teigen’s graphic, all-white look. The pro then filled in the space with a nude cream shadow.

Lupita Nyong’o dotted the outer and inner corners of her eyes with sapphire and emerald Swarovski crystals for a bejeweled effect, finishing off the look with a streak of neon orange liner.

Celebrity makeup artist Patrick Ta created this ultra defined look on Bustle cover star Addison Rae. Any color looks fab, but she makes a strong case for blue (which pops even more when paired with just a little blush, a few swipes of mascara, and glossy lips).

Vanessa Hudgens rocked a golden graphic look courtesy of makeup artist Allan Avendaño. The pro used a mix of marigold and brown liners and a summer-friendly eyeshadow palette.

Lana Condor looked fierce AF in a thick cat eye complete with a suuuper high ponytail and big hoops at the MTV Movie Awards.

Halsey looked so summery in a colorful, graphic eye. The singer used her About-Face products to achieve the look, which incorporated pops of neon orange, yellow, and lime green, all traced with black liner.

Makeup artist Pauly Blanch emphasized the inner corners of Storm Reid’s eye and dragged the line above her eyelid all the way to her temples, resulting in a sleek, futuristic vibe.
