3 Simple Inner Corner Eye Makeup Trends To Try Out

Inner Corner Eye Makeup - Maybelline India

The Inner-corner eye makeup trend is back and we’re excited for its return. After all, it adds a pop to your whole look and makes your eyes look wider and more open. Doing your inner-corner eye makeup is a good way to play around with vibrant colours and interesting styles, especially if you’re a beginner. It is super simple to do and looks super chic. You can play with colours that are more neutral or even jazz up your overall eye makeup. If we have your attention, here are three simple inner-corner eye makeup ideas that you can recreate with ease and look gorgeous. 

Inner-Corner Eye Makeup Ideas 

Check out these three inner-corner eye makeup ideas and let your eyes do the talking. 

1. Funky inner eye makeup

A hint of yellow is a great way to liven up any ensemble. It adds cheerfulness to even a regular look. To create a yellow inner corner eye makeup, start by priming the lids. A primer will help you smoothen your lids and make your eyeshadow last longer. After priming your lids, dust some light matte eyeshadow across your eyelids. This will help neutralise your eyes and make your eye makeup cohesive. A tip would be to try and choose a matte shade closest to your natural skin colour. After this, simply pack some yellow eyeshadow on a dense fine eye brush and place it in your inner corner. Be careful and try not to get any pigment in your eye. Once you are happy with the placement, complete your eye makeup with a sharp eyeliner, kajal and some mascara. Don’t forget to fill in your eyebrows and look like sunshine itself! 

With the inner eyeshadow trend, you can choose any colour depending on your mood and outfit. If you’re someone who isn’t a fan of a bold and colourful eye makeup look, for example, blue eyeshadow, you can experiment with blue inner eye makeup. Just adding a hint of colour to your inner corner eye makeup can be a good replacement. It adds the perfect pop of colour without looking too bold.  

2. Glittery inner eye makeup

Most makeup tutorials often feature this eye look that adds a shimmery touch to the inner corners of your eyes. For this look, do you eye makeup as usual and then as the last step, place some glitter on the inner corner of your eyes. The glitter will bring your eye look together and also give them an extra touch of glam. A pro tip would be to use glitter that is fine and not too chunky. Chunky glitter as your inner eyeshadow can end up looking a little patchy. The best alternative to this would be to use your powder highlighter instead. Highlighters have intense shine and fine glitter, making it the perfect touch for your inner eye makeup. You can also simply add some glitter to the inner corners without doing an elaborate eye makeup to add a subtle hint of shine.  

3. Inner corner eyeliner

Inner corner eyeliner is probably the hottest eye makeup trend this year. Between sharpened and accentuated dramatic everyday eye looks and the regular kajal or eyeliner-drawn eyes, the former is a clear winner. For this style, prep and prime your eyelids to have a smoother corner to work with and fill in your brows. Conceal your under-eye area to hide dark circles (if any) using concealer and some powder as you don’t want to reveal any under-eye darkness and puffiness. Start drawing a winged eyeliner on the upper lash line as usual. Now comes the most interesting task – applying eyeliner on the inner eye corner. It might look complicated but all you need to do is simply stretch the line past your inner eye corner of the upper lash line and continue the process on the lower lash line too. At this stage, simply join the two lines and you would have a ‘v’-shaped inner eye just made with fine strokes of eyeliner. Coat your lashes with mascara and it’s done! 

You can also experiment this eye makeup trend with a neon liner or colourful kajal pencils and apply them the same way on your inner corner. This will help you create a beautiful neon inner corner look without you having to purchase a new eyeshadow palette. Don’t forget to set the inner corner with some loose powder. This will prevent it from smudging.
