At first glance, retro-glam crooner Adele and out-there hip-hopper Nicki Minaj don’t appear to have much in common. Look a bit closer, though, and you realize that both know the magnetic power of a carefully applied swipe of eyeliner. No matter which superstar you’ve zeroed in on as your beauty icon, spring’s new crop of fine-tip liquid liners makes stealing her style a breeze.
(A foolproof application tip: Apply pencil liner first, then trace the line with liquid.)
