Ever since the breakout star of Uncut Gems stepped out (with ex-boyfriend Kanye) wearing an extra dramatic black eyeliner look, we’ve noticed the style has been showing up everywhere. One such example? On the Versace F/W 2022 runway at Milan Fashion Week.

At Versace, Pat McGrath used her PermaGel pencil to line the upper and lower lash lines as well as the waterline, then through the crease for a blocked wing shape with diffused edges. She then blended black shadow to the inner and outer eye and underneath the lower lash line.

Experts point to Euphoria as another reason experimental eyeliner looks are trending. “It’s been a huge trend lately,” says makeup artist Nydia Figueroa, pointing to the hit series as well as the red carpet at the SAG Awards. “Celebrities are bringing the drama in makeup.”

Figueroa believes people are so used to seeing more minimalist makeup trends that the Julia Fox eyeliner look provides a shock factor. “She wanted to stand out, and I know that women interested in her look would want to stand out as well,” she tells Bustle.

You can recreate the look in a more wearable style, BTW. “For a sharp and bold eyeliner effect that’s similar in shape to Julia’s, I love to use a liquid liner to create a cat eye in the inner corners, as well as a dark lash line with eyeshadow or a pencil,” says Figueroa.

Figueroa’s favorite liquid liner for this kind of look is the Be a 10 Be Magnetic Eyeliner, which has a pinpoint-sharp tip for precision. “It’s such a beautifully pigmented eyeliner and the applicator creates a wing with ease,” she says.

If the thought of using liquid eyeliner makes you sweat, there’s another option for you: eyeliner stamps. “This is an eyeliner for beginners,” says celebrity makeup artist Sangwon Jeon, who’s a fan of this one from Kaja. “They work, and they’re really easy.”

“When I did CL’s makeup a couple months ago, we went for punk rockstar vibes,” says Jeon of a slightly-more-toned-down but still Julia Fox-esque look he recently created. “We did her signature eyeliner look then used a little bit of burgundy for her under-eyeshadow.”

Jeon says you can also soften your eyeliner look by only using liner on the top or bottom lash lines. And you can extend your wing out as far as you’d like. “You just never want to have eyeliner go past the ends of your brows, or it’ll be too long for your face shape.”

Whichever technique you go with, you’ll want to have Q-tips on hand. “Draw your eyeliner, then apply foundation onto a Q-tip to make the shape,” says Jeon, who recommends these micro-sized tips. This will help clean up your lines for a more refined look.
