This makeup artist’s eyeliner hack that involves using lipstick is absolutely genius

There’s nothing better than a classic winged liner, but we can’t deny that sometimes we long for a bit of a change.

Thankfully, the internet, specifically the MakeupAddition thread on Reddit, is bursting with a wealth of amazing alternatives that are sure to make you say “SLAY”.

If colour is your jam, you’ll LOVE Reddit user Jalia MK’s post, using liquid lipstick instead of standard liner. Genius!

She used Jeffree Star Cosmetics Velour Liquid Lipstick in Diamond as eyeliner, with a MAC 210 brush. Skills a brain surgeon would be impressed with!

One Redditor said, “Oh my god! Those lines are so sharp! Good work! ”, while another commented, Ugh it’s so perfect. Please do my wings from now on”.

Jalia told Teen Vogue,

“A while ago when I saw this beautiful deep red eyeliner look from the Manish Arora 2011 Fall Collection. I was blown away by the look…but not a single brand offered an eyeliner shade even close. ”

So, she improvised, and the gorgeous look was born. It’s worth noting that you should always check if the lip colours are eye-safe, which Jeffree Star’s are. We don’t want any injuries now!

Of course, you could always mix it up with a splash of glitter for something a little bit extra, too.
