This $36 Eyeliner Will Replace Half Your Makeup Bag

From Christian Siriano's sparkly glitter tears to the electric pop liner at Prabal Gurung, the most recent autumn/winter shows were all about a show-stopping eye makeup moment. (Only time will tell what the Australian fashion week schedule serves up, but we're betting on more of the same.) After these delightful sightings way back in February, we've been asking whether or not these out of the box looks could work IRL. The answer is, of course, probably not. (Although if you have an opportunity to wear glitter tears, we say go for it.) High on runway inspiration, we set out to create three eye makeup looks just as incredible as those spotted backstage, but also wearable. Mission accomplished, but better yet, we did it using a single product. Say hello to Marc Jacobs Beauty's Highliner Matte Gel Eye Crayon

It may seem ambitious to rely on a single eyeliner to achieve three very different (but equally breathtaking) trends, but the precision, versatility and staying power of the product means it functions as a liner, eyeshadow, and highlighter in one. In fact, when the best-selling gel pencil first landed in Sephora Australia, we knew after one play it was all we needed to create a variety of looks. Our makeup artist on the shoot below wholeheartedly agreed—the moment she swiped the liner over the model's lids, we all knew we were in for some magic.
