Whether you're into a feline flick, defined raccoon eyes, or just a delicate bit of definition around the lash line, admit it: You haven't changed your eyeliner look in half a decade, at least. Swap out that basic brown smudge for some bold colors that have never seen the inside of your makeup bag. Wield that black liquid liner like it's a sword and you're Mulan. With some bold products and ingenious techniques, you'll be the talk of every party (...and meeting ...and brunch).
