While working on your eye makeup, your eyeshadow may look like a mess in the beginning. But adding a stroke of eyeliner to your eye look transforms it completely. A line of eyeliner on your lid brings your entire makeup look together and adds drama to it. Eyeliners are also a great way to play around with your makeup look. There are different types of eyeliner styles that people love to experiment with. Here are a few types of eyeliner styles that are a must-try for everyone that wants their eyes to do the talking.
No list can begin without the mention of the iconic and classic type of eyeliner style. Mastering a winged eyeliner may take some practice, but once you get the hang of it, there is no going back. There are several types of winged eyeliners that people experiment with (we are coming to those next), but the classic cat-eye holds a special place in our heart. The best way to achieve the perfect winged eyeliner is by using a high impact eyeliner. These liners last longer and glide on like butter. The intense colour payoff also ensures colour in one swipe. This way, you don’t have to go over your eyeliner multiple times, as it may result in you ruining the shape of your winged eyeliner.
Reversed Winged Eyeliner
A reversed winged eyeliner, just as the name suggests is doing the opposite of a regular winged eyeliner. This type of winged eyeliner is different and adds drama to your eyes. If you want to create a look that will grab the attention of people, this has to be it. In this type of eyeliner design, you have to add eyeliner to your lower lash line. Draw a thick line depending on the shape of your eye. After this, create a wing that points towards your temple. Sharpen the wing depending on your eye shape. For this eyeliner look, a gel eyeliner will give you the best results. It helps you have more control and also gives you an intense colour.
If you make any mistake with the eyeliner look, simply take some concealer to correct and sharpen the edges. Make sure you choose a concealer that is closest to your skin tone. If you are having trouble in finding your perfect foundation and concealer shade, you can use the Maybelline Fit FInder Foundation tool. WIth this tool you can shade match in real time, virtually, from the comfort of your homes.
Tight line Eyeliner
This type of eyeliner look is more muted than dramatic. If you want to go for a soft and subdued makeup look, this is the eyeliner of your choice. For this type of eyeliner design you simply have to draw a thin line across your lid, without extending it outwards. This thin line will define your eyes and help your eye makeup look more cohesive. To ace the tight line eyeliner look, you can opt for a liquid eyeliner with a precise brush applicator. This thin brush applicator will enable you to finely line your eyelids in one stroke!
If you want to add a little more volume to this eye look, you can add some kajal and mascara to your lashes. This will help open up your eyes and amp up your eye makeup. If you are skeptical about how this will look, you can use the Maybelline Virtual Try On tool and try the products out yourself. With this tool you can try out products before you buy them virtually, from your home.
Fox Eye Eyeliner
Among the several different types of eyeliner designs, this style of eyeliner has become quite popular recently. To recreate the fox eyes trend you line your eyelids to make them appear thinner and narrower. In this type of eyeliner design, you drag your eyeliner from your inner corner to your outer corner. You accentuate the eyeliner in your inner corner and shape them to create an illusion of smaller eyes. The eyeliner stroke has to be extremely thin and have the same thickness throughout. The best type of eyeliner for this eyelook has to be the felt tip liner. The sketchpen like tip enables you to have more control and create a precise and consistent eyeliner look.
There you have it, a few eyeliner styles that are sure to elevate your makeup game. With your face makeup and lip makeup looking on point, your eyeliner will add an additional oomph factor to the entire ensemble.
