Instagram Insta-Glam: Graphic Liner

Whether it’s wearing a bold color or a graphic shape, eyes are beginning to take the spotlight from lips and nails, which have been the stars for the past few seasons. Apparently, the ladies of Instagram are beginning to follow the trend, because our newsfeed is being flooded with graphic eyes instead of bold lips.
