One of the best things about beauty is the fact that it’s so customizable. No matter what your style is or what mood you’re in on any given day, you can apply your makeup to match. Whether you’re going for glam or perhaps the coveted no-makeup makeup look, there are a bevy of makeup ideas and eyeliner looks to help you achieve those styles.
Since it’s all about the inspo, we searched Pinterest for the best eye makeup tips and eyeliner styles. Because, let’s be honest, it’s all about the eye makeup! However you decide to define your eyes can definitely make or break your look, and it’s way more fun to feel your best than to feel not-so-fabulous, don’t you think? Thought so.
Eyeliner Looks and Inspiration from Pinterest
Upper and Lower Liner
The upper and lower liner look is great for nights out. A bit mysterious and edgy, this is one of those eyeliner looks that takes some skill. Pair it with a bold red lip from your beauty subscription, and you’ll emulate a modern version of old Hollywood glam. Go on, girl.
Colored Eyeliner Ideas
To spice things up a bit and infuse some drama into your look, try doing one of the many colored eyeliner looks. Many of us might shy away from this technique, but it actually turns out gorgeously if you do it correctly. Blending in eyeshadow is especially important with colored eyeliner, so make sure you’ve got the right eyeshadow brushes to create the look.
Graphic Eyeliner Trend
If you consider yourself to be a fashionista, you’re probably also interested in recreating some of the daring makeup looks seen on the runways. One of the most popular eyeliner looks in the high fashion world right now is the graphic eyeliner trend. The graphic style can include anything from little triangles to artsy lines; there are so many ideas and options for you to give it a try.
The Perfect Winged Eyeliner
It’s no secret that drawing two perfectly even wings on your eyelids is next to impossible for those who aren’t certified cosmetologists (and, surely, even they have a hard time with it). But not to fret, dear makeup lover. You, too, can achieve sassy cat eyes with the “tape trick.” Simply stick a piece of tape underneath your eye, with the closest edge to your eye lining the lowest spot you want your eyeliner to reach. The tape acts as a boundary or stencil so you’ll never have to throw your eyeliner in frustration ever again. Phew.
Sultry, Smokey Eyeliner Look
There’s perhaps nothing sexier than a well-done smokey eye. While the eyeshadow definitely plays a big part in this look, you can’t ignore the eyeliner. Blending the eyeliner is key to a sultry smokey eye. Prepare to turn heads with this style!
Though some of these Pinterest ideas might seem like they’re out of your league, you have to remember that everyone starts somewhere! We’re not all amazing makeup artists on the first try. Take it step-by-step and remember that eyeliner is one of the hardest beauty feats to nail. Let us know in the comments if you try any of the above eyeliner looks or if you have any tips you’d like to share. It’s always awesome to see Pinterest IRL.
