You know what’s hot and trending in the beauty world? Bright, colourful, neon eyes! From runway to red carpet, women are ditching the smokey eye effect (which, by the way, is so 2016 now!) and going for coloured eyeliners to take it up a pop. Sure, black eyeliner works well with every outfit but we think it is time that you give your eyes, just like your hair, a dash of colour. Take notes from your favourite celebrities who are crushing this trend hard and you will know why so.
For daytime occasions and night events alike, coloured eyeliners are an excellent choice. They allow you the freedom to let your imagination run wild. Feel free to experiment with colourful eyeliners that you have never tried before. Trust us, the bolder, the better!
If you are having trouble making a decision, don’t worry. We are here to spoil you for choice. Here are the top 15 best coloured eyeliners in India that you can easily find at a drugstore as well as online. Make your pretty eyes pop with these cool colourful eyeliners:
