Let's start with a fact: there are as many variations of black eyeliner—pencils, liquids, powders, pots—as there are ways to wear it. But the proof is in the print, in this case, Wonderland magazine, whose 290-page Summer 2013 issue could be rebranded as a guide to rethinking your trustiest eye-makeup product. The magazine kicks off with a goth-tinged thick lower-lash line in "Good Girl Gone Bad" , followed by a pin-thin full-eye line with a wing in "Twinkle, Twinkle" , a '70s cat eye with a smoky brow bone in "Turn it Up"  (this one courtesy of Smashbox's Limitless Liquid Liner Pen), and finally a full-eye smoke show in "Baby It's You"—and that's just the beginning. By page 178 all bets are off, and inspiration seems to be coming just as much from the animal kingdom as film , runway , and slapstick comedy , all the while remaining strangely alluring and surprisingly wearable. This is eyeliner that no one saw coming.
