A/w 2010 beauty trend: Kohl face

While brown may be the shade of choice for smoky eyes this season, black still reigned supreme in the eyeliner stakes.

With smudged-up kohl-rimmed lids, the models at Rag & Bone looked as though they'd committed the ultimate act of beauty rebellion and slept in their makeup.

At Zac Posen the look was taken a step further with eyes framed by dramatic horizontal slashes of black. Meanwhile liner winged right out to the corner of the brow turned the models at Jeremy Scott into feline femme fatales.

With her unique brand of edgy rock chic, Debbie Harry became the alternative girl's beauty icon when she burst onto the New York punk scene back in the 70s. Her signature look of dramatic eyes (heavy on the liner) teamed with glossy lips and mussed-up hair, proved once and for all that punk and pretty needn't be mutually exclusive.

Going for grunge? To achieve the slept-in look minus the panda effect, draw a line of pencil along your upper lash line and the inner rim of your lower lid then smudge with a cotton bud.

For a 50s Mad Men inspired winged out eyeliner, pull the skin taut then draw a line using liquid liner from the inner corner in the direction of the edge of the brow. Build the look in stages for a straighter line.

If you like the clean lines of liquid liner but your hand isn't too steady, ditch the brush and pot in favour of a felt-tip style liner pen. The brushes are firmer but they're also thicker so use the tip when creating fine lines.

A flash of coloured liner is great for an everyday wearable take on this year's bright-eyed trend – because few of us are lucky enough to aquamarine eyebrows. Pewter is a sexy after-dark alternative to black.
