It's true that no eye makeup trend can take the place of the iconic winged-eyeliner. However, there's always room for experimenting. Allow me to introduce you to the fancy square eyeliner trend. You'll love it because it's minimal, neat and oh-so-gorgeous. Unlike most eyeliner trends, the focus here isn't on the thickness of the line on the upper lash line, but on the outer V. The little black square helps to create depth and add definition to the eyes. And, what do you need to ace this super fun eye makeup look? A good quality liquid matte eyeliner for girls, of course!

How To Do A Square Eyeliner Makeup Look

Trust me, it's easier than you think.

Step 1: With your liquid eyeliner, create a basic cat-eye

If you want the focus to only be on the squares, then you can skip lining your upper lash line and only focus on the outer V like this one. 

Black isn't your colour? No problem! How about playing with coloured eyeliner?
