How to Do Eyeliner According to Your Eye Shape
Okay, doing makeup is hard.
You sit, stand squat, prop or whatever, spend quality time on some fine-art you probably failed at in school, trying to get that killer look for the day, and in the end you had best hit the bulls eye.
Speaking of the eye…It’s one of the most amazing features of the face, and that’s why it takes up to 75% of the face’s makeup.
These days, ladies do amazing stuffs with the eyes, while some do good with some winged eye look, looking like fairy-tale characters, others just look like a poor painting on a canvas. Fureal!!
There’s a general misconception that everyone does their eyeliner the same way, but the truth is, you’ll most likely do your eyeliner the way you learnt to. To get the perfect winged eye look, you have to do your eyeliner based on what works best for your eye shape.
Now it’s time to understand the various eye shapes; figure out yours and what works best for you.
Okay, for upturned eyes, use a thin line with a little wing. Also, connect the wing to a little liner under the eye. This works greatly.
Downturned eyes can be a little tricky; You put the eyeliner in the inner corner of the eye thinner and outer corner thicker. You want to extend your wing a little past your eye shape and angle it upwards to lift your eye.
Almond eyes are my personal crave, and here’s why; Apply any even shape eyeliner you desire. With almond eyes you could wear any type of liner—thin, thick, wing or not. Almond eyes are the easiest eyes to use eyeliner on.
For monolid eyes, apply a thick line using your eyeliner until you see a beautiful line when your eyes are open. When you look down, the liner will look thick. When you open your eyes, it will show a perfect eyeliner shape.
For round eyes, you would need to elongate your eyes, you want to create a triangle shape. This will give you more of a cat eye look. Everyone loves the cat eye look. *wink*
So you’ve got hooded eyes? No problem at all. You want the eyeliner in the inner corner of the eye thinner and outer corner thicker similar to the downturned eyes. Then extend your wing a little past your eye shape.
