Liquid eyeliner doesn’t have to be tricky. Just ask Jenna Menard. We joined Clinique’s Global Colour Artist backstage at Karen Walker’s NYFW show and got tips on how even the most unsteady hand can recreate the liquid liner look at home!

“Karen told me that her clothing line had an edge, and I wanted the makeup to embody that,” said Jenna. “With edge, there is enough room to be creative and figure out what you want to do. However, this entire look can be worn on the average woman.”

Walker’s clothing always represents two opposing visuals, and Minard added that element to the makeup. She went for strong brows, liquid liner and contour on the cheekbones, and to add a feminine twist, she dabbed the lids with milky eyeshadows and painted long, thick lashes.

Tip from the pro: using a flat ended brush, put the liquid liner on your hand and dab the brush in the liner and lay in the lash line.
