While watching Tasmanian Senator Jacqui Lambie deliver her resignation speech from the Palmer United Party last week, two questions came to mind: Is that a vintage Avon frosted-pink lipstick? And does inner rim eyeliner actually suit anyone over the age of 18?
For many of us, we’re familiar with lining our eyes with nude or an off-white pencil to help our eyes look bigger and appear more awake, but probably haven’t taken to our waterline with a navy or black liner since our teens or twenties.
But there’s a few women who are making me rethink inner rim eyeliner. Namely: Jacqui Lambie, former Sass & Bide designer Heidi Middleton, and the Duchess of Cambridge. Now, there’s three names I never thought I’d write in the same sentence.
After some careful research ok, mostly Googling, I’ve come up with a theory that there are three types of women who wear dark inner rim eyeliner*.
The Cool Girls like makeup artist Charlotte Tilbury and Cara Delevingne make inner rim eyeliner look completely effortless. It’s entirely possibly they’ve slept with it on for days, and just keep on topping it up. Either way they give zero f*cks what you think.
