MUA and digital influencer {@lindahallberg} is committed to creating stunning (and inventive) beauty looks that push the boundaries. Enviably avant-garde (we're talking glossy lids and rainbow washes), Linda drew these gorgeous, graphic lines using the following {NYX Professional Makeup} essentials...

Demi-matte skin is the ultimate canvas for colour-pop pigments, so start with a suede-effect base (such as {Stay Matte But Not Flat}) to grant your complexion a velveteen finish. Next, define your features with the {Highlight & Contour Pro Palette} - using the deeper contour shades to enhance hollows, and your choice of highlight shade to make your cheek and brow bones 'pop' - then get set to emulate Linda's statement-making eyes...

Linda drew her bold, exaggerated 'wings' using the {Vivid Brights Eyeliner} in the daring, 'Sapphire' shade, before indulging her creative streak and using the shade 'Fire' to trace skinny, illustrative lines below her (unapologetic) eyebrows... Allow your own imagination to run wild - don't feel compelled to copy Linda's look. The rule is, there are no rules! Vary the colours, try something asymmetrical or opt for curves instead of straight-edged drama.

Follow with lashings of the {Worth The Hype Volumizing & Lengthening Mascara}. It comes in four colours (including a colour-pop cobalt), then make sure your lips pack a punch with a coat of the bestselling {Liquid Suede Cream Lipstick} in the shade 'Cherry Skies'.

Now, set forth and get set to stop traffic!
