Forget everything you know about traditional eyeliner and take a moment to appreciate the latest, ‘thumb-print’ eyeliner trend .

Yes, it’s a real thing.

The most dreaded step of any beauty routine will now be your favourite, as this daring look will take you as little as 5 minutes to create.

As seen on Victoria’s Secret model Bella Hadid, this eyeliner trend promises to make a statement on your next girls-night out .

Now for a little background on the trend… the makeup artist behind the daring look, Yadim Carranza told Vogue “it was a last minute change, as the makeup was missing something”.

That ‘something’ was the thumbprint design you see smudged on the outer corners of Bella Hadid's eyelids.

The ‘thumb-print’ eyeliner trend (think of it as the thicker and less perfect step sister to the traditional winged eyeliner) first grabbed everyone’s attention at Jason Wu's Spring fashion show.
