Even before applying the eyeliner, there are a few things to consider to set you up for success. Discovering your eye shape is an integral part of perfecting the fine art of eyeliner. While your application technique is, of course, important, first determine what style, color, and thickness may be right for you. To get you started, here are some of the basic eye shapes and what styles enhance their natural beauty.
A sharp wing looks wonderful on you and accentuates your eyes while also making them sparkle. For colors, think about lighter eyeliner hues.
If you have upturned eyes, consider a thin line on your upper lid. To bring out the naturally beautiful shape of your eyes even more, consider lightly filling in your bottom lash line as well and then topping with a coat of mascara or a beautiful lash (or lash extensions).
Darker eyeliner shades are stunning on those with hooded eyes, especially when used on the outer corner of your eye. This will add both contour and dimension to your look, making your eyes pop even more than usual.
Monolid eyes look fabulous with a thicker liner and a winged eyeliner look on the top lid. Don’t forget to add your own personal style to it! You can add more lines, color, or whatever makes you feel as gorgeous as you are.
A tighter, thinner line is absolutely perfect for those with rounded eyes. Start close to the inner corner of your eye and try to stay close to your upper lash line to make your eyes shine especially bright.
Almond eyes are gorgeous and can be emphasized by using a darker liner on the top lid and a lighter liner on the lower lash line. Light eyeliner makes the eyes look bigger and more alert. Cat-eyes are also enchanting on this eye type.
It is worth noting that these are just suggestions of eyeliner styles that may look good on your eye shape. These are by no means hard and fast rules of how your makeup must be done. If you want a beautiful, sharp cat-eye, make that cat-eye happen. These are just helpful starting points when thinking about a look.
