Eyeliner Crushing: Lauren Mayberry

Still from the 'Gun' video
Lauren Mayberry is the singer for a Glaswegian electropop band Chvrches (pronounced "churches"). She's adorable, right? Like a little pixie with her big brown eyes and delicate features. She reminds me a little of Emma Watson. 

I'm in love with the way she likes to wears her eyeliner. Long swooping lines that extend towards her nose on the inside and well out towards her temple. In the photo here, she's only got that long, extended line on one eye and there are tiny dots of eyeliner at the ends of each swoop. 

Sometimes she pairs it with some silver as in the photos here and here

Lips are kept rosy and slightly glossy. Skin is natural. It's a very simple look, but it's also very compelling. 

Sometimes she goes a bit heavier with her eye makeup, but keeps that elongated shape. In this photo it looks like she's got metallic (perhaps silver) swoops extended down onto her cheekbone. 

So pretty, and so cool. Referencing both the 1960s and the 1980s.

Here's the 'Gun' video - great tune.
