If one major thing has changed in the world of makeup over the last few years it's blurring of lines between makeup products. It used to be lipstick for lips, blusher for cheeks and eyeshadow for eyes. No more. Now cosmetics have gone all multitasking on us, breaking free from their specific facial regions. Highlighter can be used on cheeks, temples, eyes, pretty much anywhere you like; lipstick is often used as a blush and balms are for eyebrows, lips, eyelashes – whatever you want really. This new makeup hack is truly brilliant: beauty bloggers are creating killer eyeliner with liquid lipstick and it looks super cool.

Youtube vlogger Jalia MK showed off her clever liner trick on the website, using a gorgeous violet velour liquid lipstick by Jeffree Star in Diamond. She wrote: "Tried a graphic eyeliner with liquid lipstick." The effect is gorgeous, with serious precision. Like, we'd need a stencil for this.

Jalia's followers loved her beauty hack, with one posting: "Haha ok that’s some serious skill you’ve got going on there!" Another said: "The colour is so beautiful and you executed the eyeliner shape so well."

Clearly, it's a good idea to check that the ingredients in a liquid lipstick are safe for the sensitive eye area. Bacteria can also easily be transferred from lips to eyes, so ensure you clean the applicator well before switching zones.
