If you’ve ever felt bad about your eyeliner handling and skills, raise your hand. Ooo I guess you’re quite in need of some crazy eyeliner hacks that you eagerly want to try out this year. It’s actually going to be extremely beneficial for you because I’m here with some of the coolest tricks I learned in the past few months. Oh, and when I asked about the eyeliner skills to raise your hand on, I raised mine as well because I’ve always been really bad at applying eyeliners. I couldn’t even make a good stroke but that didn’t stop me. I practiced some tricks and now, at least, I can put on any eyeliner style that I like on the internet.
However, I’ve come up with some ideas for you because you know, you might have some plans for your prom or maybe something else where you want to look even more gorgeous than you actually are. So how about we get into it right now without wasting any more time here, shall we?
Let’s see what style no. 1 is.
1. The Cat Eye
Oooo sounds interesting, hmm? I know you like cats a lot, I mean, who doesn’t? They’re so cute and anything related to them on your makeup would look so cool. The cat eye is actually an extension of a winged eyeliner stroke. At the outer end of the stroke, you just bring it back a bit along with the upper curve of the eyelid to get this effect.
The best eyeliner type to use for this one is the liquid ink one because pencils won’t bring the elegance of this style.
And trust me, no matter where you wear this, this is going to attract lots of eyes towards you. However, they look cool at parties and such occasions. But seriously, it’s your choice girl!
2. The Double Stroke Look
This one looks exactly as its name. Such an awesome look it is, I wore it at a birthday party recently and my friends went crazy over it. I think it’s not even something extraordinary or something difficult to wear. All you gotta do is apply eyeliner on the upper lid and make sure it’s winged. Then, just add another winged stroke along the lower lid of your eye as well and you’ll end up with a double stroke. They also call it a fishtail eyeliner as well.
All it takes is a skinny gel pencil eyeliner because you’re gonna need a long-lasting and perfect looking sharp eyeliner strokes on this one.
Wear this at parties and even bigger occasions like weddings etc. These looks are going to make you look like you’ve just come out of a salon.
3. Please Don’t Forget The Natural Look
Just because we’ve been talking about the “special” looking styles of eyeliners, we shouldn’t forget the first-ever eyeliner stroke that we learned. This puts a natural look to your face and sophisticatedly makes your natural features prominent. I don’t see a good reason why you shouldn’t wear this look. Do I really need to give you a tutorial on this one? I know you know it already, don’t you?
It really doesn’t matter which eyeliner type you use for this. Each of them will have a different look. If you want smoky strokes then you should go for pencils. And if you want a super clean and darker shade, then the gel or liquid ones will be good for you.
You don’t really need to have a reason to apply this astonishing natural look. It’s a highly compatible style so it really doesn’t matter if you’re going outside for shopping, taking your kids to school, going for a party, or on an adventure. This style will rock your looks and drop everyone’s jaws!
4. Thick Wing
We’ve talked about the eyeliner wings. Now let’s do something more fun and add some thickness to it, shall we? It’s really easy, all you have to do is first draw the outline of the wing with the eyeliner. Make it thick and then fill it up very thoroughly and accurately. Beauty alert!!! If you really want “all eyes on you”, then this style will be great.
You’re gonna need two types of eyeliners here. The pencil ones to make the outline and the gel or liquid one to fill it up. Make sure that you get both of these of the highest quality because you don’t want to mess this style up. To make sure of that, you must look for the boxes, yes exactly. The ones with very appealing eyeliner packaging boxes should be your first and last bet. Good companies make good products and present them with good packaging and they usually get them from top-tier companies like Dawn Printing. And once you have these eyeliners, you’re gonna be the luckiest!
Just don’t wear it usually at all. You have to tell people that you don’t have only this style to wear and they shouldn’t get to see it many times. Wear it rarely and on special occasions so you look outstanding every time you do.
The Bottom Line
Eyeliners are one of the most elegant makeup products ever produced. Ladies, including me, are crazy over them and none of us wants to miss a single chance to wear this beauty. And ever since this COVID-19 pandemic had started, we’ve been our homes and that is exactly the time when I properly learned to apply eyeliner and tried out some styles as well. This is why I decided to share some of them with you that I learned and I think you can try these too. C’mon don’t be shy, you’ll look pretty! Oh, and don’t forget to learn about the different types of eyeliners because that would be extremely helpful to give you the perfect look of the style that you want.
