    Maybe you're considered the quiet one in your group of friends. Maybe you're the drama queen or even the know-it-all. Whatever your descriptor, you've got a distinct personality — and a unique beauty look to match. (We like to think that our inky cat-eye matches our sweet and sassy vibes.) But, just like how personalities can change over time (or overnight), so can your makeup. Hey, if you're all business at work but turn into a raging dance machine on the weekend, we bet you've got the beauty looks to match. That's why we've cooked up five inspiring looks to represent the multifaceted person that you are.    

    From a slick, two-toned winged tip that channels your inner artist to a grungy smudged lower lashline, the looks we created with makeup artist Lisa Aharon will seriously inspire you to reconsider your makeup du jour. Don't worry, while they may seem like they're out of your wheelhouse, they're surprisingly easy to DIY with Aharon's pro techniques and a few Rimmel London products.

    So, what's it gonna be — your regular routine or a two-toned cat-eye? You choose.

    Get The Look
    Pick your black eyeliner of choice — pencil, gel, or liquid — and make a small dot right in the center of your lower lashline. Then, define your top and bottom lashes with mascara, like Rimmel London Wonder'Lash Mascara with Argan Oil. Apply two smooth coats horizontally as you would normally and then two more vertically to really detail your fringe, says Aharon. Keep the rest of the face bare save for a wash of shimmery eyeshadow and soft-pink lipstick.

    Your Makeup Go-To: Color Chameleon
    If you're a creative type, you probably see your lids as a blank canvas. Your signature look? A precise two-toned cat-eye that's daring yet subtle enough to wear on the daily.

    First, prime your lids. Then, create a classic winged tip with black gel liner. If you have monolids, make sure the line is thick enough so it doesn't disappear into your crease when you open your eyes. Then, use a turquoise gel liner to trace right above the black. You can choose to use any bright color you want. If your lines look a little jagged, clean 'em up with a thin brush coated in the black liner, says Aharon.

    Your Makeup Go-To: Arty Coloring
    You treat your face like a work of art, so chances are you're probably not doing the whole no-makeup makeup look. Instead, pops of vibrant purple on the eyes and electric pink on the cheeks is your safe place.
