2 Kick-Ass Ways To Wear Divergent Liner

Ever since we first rested our gaze on divergent eyeliner at Dior's cruise collection runway show back in early May, we've been seriously crushing on this unique liner look. Then, Chanel went ahead and sexed it up at its resort show, and we just knew we had to find a way to add this uniquely gorgeous makeup trend to our lives, like now.

So, we set out on a mission: We needed a cool, in-the-know pro to show us exactly how to replicate this amazing eye-defining trick on ourselves. Enter Niko Lopez, a NARS national makeup stylist. Lopez was totally game to show us not one but two different ways to do divergent liner — a look, we might add, that was copped from the makeup many dancers wear to make their eyes appear larger onstage. And, while it may look complicated, our beauty writer/guinea pig Maria was psyched to learn it's actually a piece of cake to recreate.
Check out the video to learn two cool ways to wear this rad runway trend.
