Guys, are you game for the ‘guy­liner’?

Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Front Page - Ab­hi­nav Verma

Who says boys don’t wear eye­liner? It’s called ‘guy­liner’ and it is a beauty sta­ple for fash­ion for­ward men who dare to be dif­fer­ent. Ac­tor and mu­si­cian Jared Leto, co­me­dian Rus­sell Brand and ac­tor Johnny Depp are known for their love for the ‘guy­liner’. Le­gends such as Charlie Chap­lin and David Bowie used to line their eyes with black pen­cils. The trend is pop­u­lar on the ramp, too, with male mod­els wear­ing ka­jal for that in­tense look.

Now, with Bol­ly­wood trend­set­ters go­ing for surma and kohl-lined eyes, guy­liner is go­ing to be ma­jor trend this sea­son. Ac­tor Shah Rukh Khan wears surma in his re­cently re­leased film Raees. Ac­tor Ran­veer Singh, too, went for kohl-lined eyes at a re­cent event.

“The guy­liner trend is a hit this sea­son. Grooms are go­ing for black eye­liner, ka­jal and kohl. If you have the per­son­al­ity to carry it off, it can look great. I like smudged eye­lin­ers on guys for that rus­tic, rugged look,” says Vidya Tikari, make-up artist.

How­ever, this fierce, in­tense look is not easy to pull off. “The look is not for ev­ery­one. It looks great on those who have long or medium hair. It also works bet­ter with eth­nic wear,” says stylist Vikram Seth

De­signer Nida Mah­mood sug­gests go­ing for sub­tly lined eyes. “You also need to get your eye­brows and beard in shape first,” she says.
