Beauty trend update: go back to school this season with our round-up of the best pencil case-inspired buys

Words Joy Montgomery

School is nearly out for the holidays but pencil case-inspired make-up is officially in. The AW16 beauty trend was ushered by cult beauty brand Milk Makeup, with their quirky eye and lip markers that bare an uncanny resemblance to real highlighter pens. Since discovering this chic spin on make-up we can’t stop spotting copycat looks: from Rimmel’s permanent marker eyeliner to Nars’ colourful lip crayons.

Whether it’s scribbling in your eyeshadow, painting your lips or finger painting your foundation, take the opportunity to relive those childhood memories and inject a bit of fun into your life with pencil case-inspired beauty.
