THE BEST EYELINER LOOKS FOR YOUR EYE SHAPE


THE BEST EYELINER LOOKS FOR YOUR EYE SHAPE

First and foremost, we’re all about having fun, experimenting and ultimately accessorizing your beautiful face the way YOU want. With that said, there are a few common eyeliner looks that are particularly flattering for certain eye shapes—so we’re sharing them in case you’re looking for something different to try. Who knows, your daily cat-eye might meets its contender!

 

Almond Eyes

If you have almond-shaped eyes, most liner styles will complement you! Your best bet when applying a liner is to follow the natural curve of your eye. Start with a thin line in your inner corner and build thickness towards the end. For bonus points, add a little flick at the end with a bold, colorful liner (a winged liner brush is our choice for a perfect flick).

 

Hooded Eyes

The key with this eye shape is to use the space you have to your advantage. By tightlining your waterline with a dark, gel liner your eyes will stand out with losing any precious hood space you have. Make sure to work between your lashes and to thicken the base towards the end of your eye. To hack a winged liner, gently pull the outer corner of your eye upward and outward and elongate your wing past the fold.

 

Bonus tip: to make your eyes appear larger, avoid liner on your lower lash line.

 

Close-Set Eyes

With close-set eyes, the focus is generally on the outer corner of the eye. Start lining on the outer third of your eye, keeping the liner thin towards the middle and thicker at the end. Elongate your wing towards your brow. For a bolder look, try using a lighter color in the inner corner of your eye with a black liner in the outer third of your eye. Try “Take A Hike” cream liner.

 

Monolid

If you do have a “fuller” monolid (as in, you have more fat on your lid), try a straight cat eye, extending the wing all the way to the end of your brow, to enhance the natural shape of your eye. You can also draw a straight line from the inner third of your eye towards your tear duct. On the other side of the coin, flatter monolids provide a little more surface area. The extra lid space lends itself to cool geometric designs, giving your look a lot more edge.
