Subject–Verb Agreement

Not the first time this writer gets his subject–verb agreement wrong. Make it LED eyeliners accentuate because a plural verb agrees with a plural head noun.

And note that eyeliners is spelt as one word — whether a compound is spelt as two separate words, is hyphenated, or is spelt as a single word is rarely entirely predictable; if unsure, always check with a reputable dictionary.
