How to Apply Eyeliner For Each Eye Shape

  • As you’re aware, different hairstyles suit different face shapes, but have you considered tailoring your style of eyeliner to your eye shape?

    It’s something that’s easy to forget to think about with so many other aspects of your look to ponder, but you might be surprised just how effective the right eyeliner style can be. Whether you’ve got round eyes, hooded eyes or a different shape, your eyeliner can have a real impact on the way you look.

Eyeliner tips and tricks

Now that we’ve explained how to apply eyeliner for each eye shape, let’s take a look at some handy eyeliner application tips and tricks that you can use to really make your eyes pop!

1. To achieve a softer look, simply wipe off any excess eyeliner or use a kohl liner and blend it out for a smudged look.

2. If you’re having trouble keeping your skin taut while you’re applying eyeliner, gently tug the outer corner of your eye as you apply the liner.

3. Placing a mirror below you can ensure that you’ve got an easier view of what you’re doing when applying eyeliner, helping to keep the slips and mistakes to a minimum.

Speaking of mistakes, make sure you’ve always got a handy cotton bud nearby that you can use to tidy up any rogue brushwork.
