The red eyeliner trend has been floating around for decades. But as it is a particularly horrible look and flattering to practically no one, it tends to be something you see only in the pages of a magazine or in a frightening catwalk show
Rhianna pulls no punches with her looks and sported red liner at the 2009 American Music Awards. The thing is Rhianna is no ordinary woman – everything manages to look amazing on her. She’s one of those goddess women (like Beyonce) who are so damn bootylicious that they can get away with anything.
Derek Lam also had a bash at this in his 2010 show – and while it looks nice on the models it would look seriously gak walking down the street.
And then we come to that miserable pair Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen. Sporting a serious case of what looked like Pink eye their two burnt holes in a blanket red eyeliner was seriously horrible. Girls come on! Crack a smile. Stop hunching over. Wear something nice. You’re young, you’re pretty and you’re zillionaires – what the HELL are you doing looking like this all the time.
The red liner is a step too far. Please don’t do it again girls – I beg you!
