Celebrities are clearly here for 2019's biggest makeup trend, which is all about bright, vivid eyes. Mandy Moore just rocked an epic cobalt blue liner, while Gigi Hadid opted for a sunshine-yellow lid back in March that proved to be an instant mood booster. But although fresh, colorful shadows are certainly reigning supreme in the beauty department this year, cooler, classic tones aren't going away anytime soon, and Sophie Turner's white eyeliner is proof. Not only does it make a case for winter white in the summertime, but it also offers up an easy way to elevate a classic cat eye.

The can't-miss element in Turner's latest beauty look — which she sported to attend a fan event for her upcoming film X-Men: Dark Phoenix — was her eye makeup, courtesy of Georgie Eisdell. The beauty pro took to Instagram on Tues. to share a close-up of her bold creation: a black-and-white cat eye that you're going to want to recreate stat.

To achieve Turner's cool lids (pun intended), Eisdell started by drawing a thin wing with black liquid liner. But rather stopping there, she took it up a notch by drawing another, more exaggerated line on top with a crisp white pencil. A few coats of mascara and a glossy nude pout pulled everything together perfectly.

White liner has been the secret tool in just about every makeup pro's beauty box. When applied along the waterline, it instantly brightens and creates the illusion of bigger eyes. Now, it's also one of the easiest ways to liven up a classic cat eye, while still delivering that same poppy effect.

Turner isn't the first notable name to rock an ivory liner, either. The trend has been popping up among the celeb set time and again this year, with the likes of Margot Robbie, Janelle Monáe, and Bella Hadid serving up their own take on '60s-inspired lids.
