I’m someone who’s always found solace in music. So when Lady Gaga and Ariana Grande released their bop “Rain on Me” and the accompanying music video at the height of my pandemic anxiety, I actually burst into tears. Finally, something worth celebrating had arrived. In between celebrating my Italian heritage and getting the choreo down pat, I found myself mesmerized by the graphic white eyeliner looks Gaga and Ari were rocking the hell out of.
I tried the white eyeliner trend when it first started popping off last summer, and while I have mastery of the simple wing, I was ready to try something a little more extreme, like the crisp cat eye worn by Gaga in the video for my new anthem. The problem? I had no idea where to start.
