Love it or Loathe it: Graphic Eye Liner

Not going to lie, when we started sensing this graphic eye trend a-brewin' during the spring 2013 runway shows we filed the look under "breathtaking... for the catwalks." It's not exactly the most wearable trend outside of fashion week, no?

Welp, we were wrong.

It might've taken some warming up to, but abstract eye liner finally seems to be catching on—in Hollywood at least. Let's observe!


Solange Knowles copy-catted the aqua arches from Michael Kors's spring 2013 show for a recent performance in Brooklyn.


This weekend, Kourtney Kardashian test drove the trend with sharp liner that extended past both the inner and outer corners of her eye. She also added staggered falsies to really emphasize the graphic feel.


And last but not least, Rita Ora put her own spin on the style by transforming a classic cat eye into something wonderfully futuristic.

So, what's your take on the trend? Love it? Loathe it? Hoping this runway/red carpet look makes it IRL? Weigh in with your thoughts in our poll, below!
