If we had to name the biggest makeup trends in 2019, graphic eyeliner would easily place in the top three. The entire year was all about taking your traditional winged eyeliner and turning it into something more masterful to replicate different shapes and designs using some of the boldest and brightest colored eyeliners. We’ve loved seeing the most talented makeup artists, influencers and makeup lovers alike create their own variations. As 2019 comes to a close, we decided to make a list of the best graphic eyeliner looks of the year..

Neon Green Inner Corner Eyeliner
Highlighter colors were all the rage in 2019. From clothing to makeup, neon was literally everywhere. One of our favorite graphic eyeliner makeup looks is this variation with a pop of neon green in the inner corners. It’s a minimalist approach that uses bold colors to offer a standout but still wearable option.

Pink Winged Graphic Eyeliner 
Graphic liner doesn’t always have to be so bold or bright, which is why we’re obsessed with this pretty in pink variation. Opt for a pastel alternative to give your graphic eyeliner a subtle yet stunning twist.

Colorful Graphic Eyeliner
When you can’t choose one color, choose them all. We’re obsessed with this cut crease meets smoky eyeliner look because it marries colors that we wouldn’t normally reach for when doing our eyeliner and looks oh-so good together.

Hollowed-Out Cat Eyeliner 
If you’re growing tired of that traditional cat-eye, consider this hollowed-out variation. It’s the perfect “cool-girl” option, and the best part is it can be done in three easy steps

Multiple Pastel Eyeliner Look 
This multiple pastel eyeliner look has a trippy 3D effect, which is exactly why it places among our favorite graphic eyeliner looks. Create this look using any of your favorite colors as it’s sure to be just as beautiful no matter what you choose.

Halo Blue Eyeliner
This is like the eyeliner cousin to the cut-crease eyeshadow look except it’s a little bit easier to create. Simply outline the shape of your crease with a winged outer corner and then follow up by creating two smaller outlines beneath the first line.

Flaming Eyeliner 
For those who aren’t afraid of being bold, this flaming eyeliner look is for you. It’s definitely a more intricate variation so be sure to have your Q-tips and micellar water on deck to keep your lines sharp and clean. Reach for the cult-favorite Garnier SkinActive Micellar Cleansing Water in the waterproof formula to clean up even the most stubborn liner.

Lotus Eyeliner
This eyeliner look inspired by the lotus flower is as pretty as the actual plant. Use an eyeliner with a metallic finish to give it that extra bit of pop. The NYX Professional Makeup Metallic Eyeliner in Rose Gold is a perfect dupe for this look if you’re looking to DIY.
