There’s a long running debate in the beauty world about the effectiveness of white eyeliner. We thought the look was a good idea in our middle school days, but we wouldn’t dare bust out the stuff these days unless it served a very specific purpose. The unconventional shade has been used by makeup artists of the past and present to forge the illusion of bright eyes. Since white eyeliner matches the whites of eyes, it forms one big shape, supposedly rendering eyes doll-like. Or so they say. We’ve seen the trick go south plenty of times, specifically on several of the Real Housewives of Such and Such County. But alas, our doubts may have been quelled as actress Olivia Munn was recently spotted looking fabulous with this one little makeup trick in tow. During the long winter season of holiday parties and too much spiked eggnog, we’re glad to pick up a new little tool to make those sleepless nights a lot less noticeable.

Don’t let stories of white eyeliner gone wrong discourage you from trying out the look for yourself. This look is best when paired with laid-back looks that don’t provide much of a contrast. Pair with neutral lips and eyeshadow to incorporate the color smoothly. We adore this look with easy breezy hairstyles. Experiment with this cute combination to nail the Cali girl look in a flash. Take care to avoid too much of a contrast between the whites of eyes and the eyeliner. This common mistake can take a creepy turn quick. We’re lookin’ at you, Tamara Barney.
