If kohl pencil were to be the fashion equivalent of a beautiful summer dress, then consider white eye pencil to be gorgeous suede stilettos; it makes a dramatic statement in and of itself, but doesn't completely dominate the overall look. Yet it remains an unused colour for liner, but there are so many ways to work with it. Gor for adventurous and bold, or minimalist and chic. Let it be a secret beauty weapon and a nice alternative to a bold black cat eye.

Rethink classic placement
You probably know that the trick to making your eyes look more wide open is to swipe a white liner along your waterline. But unless you're going for a look that is deliberately graphic, the effect can come off a little too harsh. Instead, make-up experts suggest using a softer tone, like beige or pale pink. White can look a little unnatural in the waterline while beige and pink look a little less severe and have the same effect.

Get graphic
Go big or go home – that should be your attitude when working with the hue. Opt for sharp, graphic shapes instead of smudging it out as you would with a smoky black. Go for a white cat-eye, which can look really chic if it's minimal. You can also do a floating liner effect in the crease, like a '60s banana eye, it can be tricky to get the shape exact, so patience is key here. It would all come together better if you tilt your head upwards and look down into the mirror to determine your crease. The slight dip where your eyeball ends and your brow bone begins is where you should place the liner. Where your crease lands first, slowly start drawing a line in that area.

Finish with mascara
Though contrasting the effect with your classic black mascara may seem severe, you actually need a few sweeps to ground the look. When it comes to finishing the effect, treat white eyeliner the same as your traditional noir. Wearing a black mascara, or any mascara with white liner for that matter, looks really cool, and can also help conceal any liner you get on your top lashes. Whatever eye liner you use, if you don't follow it with mascara, it can look like you have powder on your eyelashes. Make sure to apply the mascara after you're done, and if you're feeling super-adventurous, play with coloured mascaras like blue or aubergine.
