6 Different Enviable Ideas for Eyeliner

Cosmetic products and makeup techniques have helped make many women feel beautiful and confident in themselves. With these 6 different ideas for eyeliner, you will feel beautiful and confident too.

Even though we know that these qualities are a question of attitude, many women feel sophisticated and sensual when doing their makeup just right. 

On the same idea, the eyes play a key role. Showcasing an attractive and mysterious side isn’t the only thing they do.

They also reflect emotions and help highlight the face’s other natural beauty features.

However, it’s important to learn how to appropriately apply products, keeping in mind that eyeliner is much more than a simple line.

As we know that many may not know exactly how, today we want to share 6 eyeliner ideas for different occasions. 

Don’t miss out!

1. Cat eye

Cat eye

The Cat Eye continues as the number one makeup trend for the eyes.

It’s a daring and sensual technique that usually is used for special occasions, especially those celebrated at night.

It’s drawn with neutral colors but made to stand out with plenty of mascara on the eyelashes and eye-catching silver or gold eye-shadow.

However, you have to be careful when drawing on and thickening the line because too much eyeliner can make it less-than-special and tasteless.

What should you do?

  • Outline the entire eye with black eyeliner and, little by little, thicken the line until it looks similar to the thickness of the line shown in the photo.
  • After, draw a wing away from the line and fill it in solid black.

2. Color Eyeliner

Ideas for eyeliner

Color eyeliner has a youthful and fresh effect, ideal for making big eyes shine.

You can make it with a dark base and layering a tone that jumps out on top.

Contrasting to what we saw in the Cat Eye, only the top part of the eye is lined, ending with a wing angled outwards.

What should you do?

  • Start lining with a dark color, just above the roots of the eyelashes.
  • After, following the same line, add a bit of color.

3. Full Outline

Full Outline

Th Full Outline shares similar characteristics with the Cat Eye, but the idea is to draw it a bit more discreetly.

You can use the Full Outline both during the day and at night because it helps achieve a profound and mysterious gaze without being too strong.

As the ideal for the Full Outline is discretion, it shouldn’t be combined with eye-shadow nor with too much mascara.

What should you do?

  • Outline the eyes with a fine line, but be careful not to make it too angular or prominent.
  • Avoid this style if you have smaller or almond-shaped eyes because instead of highlighting them, it will make them opaque and dark.

4. Double Liner

Double Liner

The Double Liner is a very sensual style that you can use for night events. It requires a little more technique, but you can keep trying it until it comes out perfect.

The lines are drawn on the upper and lower lid, but they shouldn’t connect.

To give them an even more elegant look, they can be filled in with a pearl eye-shadow.

What should you do?

  • Line the upper lid, finishing with a wing pointing upwards.
  • After, line the lower lid, blurring it slightly, so that it doesn’t stand out too much. 

5. Thin Line

Thin Line

With this style of eyeliner, you’ll be able to achieve an elegant and discreet look. It’s perfect for a causal work day as well as a day off out of the city or at the beach.

To ensure that the eyes look more expressive, mascara should be applied precisely onto the eyelashes.

What should you do?

  • Start by applying a smooth base over the eyelids and, after, draw a subtle black line.
  • Thicken the line slightly at the exterior part of the eye and it’s all ready.

6. Greek Line

Greek Line

Women with smaller and almond-shaped eyes can achieve a sophisticated and luminous look with the Greek Line.

It makes the eyes look a little bigger and rounder, helping them stand out.

The Greek Line works for a day or night

look, combined with white or other color eye-shadow.

What should you do?

  • The lines are drawn almost completely outlining the eye, but they are only drawn midway on the bottom.
  • It works best with mascara on the eyelashes along with bright eye-shadows.
