Different Types of Eyeliner Styles

Eye makeup plays an important role in your whole makeup and that’s why eyeliner styles matter when you want to look your best and want to stand apart from the crowd. Take a look at these eyeliner styles and find the one that resonates with you. 

Classic Cat Eyes:

A cat eye done is one of the best eyeliner styles that can completely change your look. To execute it with perfection, we suggest you use a gel or liquid liner. Start by making a thin outline from your inner eye. Thicken it as you move out, extending it upwards and outwards from the outer corner of your eye. And then line your lower lashline. You can finish the look by adding some amount of mascara to create a dramatic look.


MyGlamm’s Recommendation:

A sleek winged liner is one of the most common eyeliner styles of applying eyeliner. The best part about a sleek winged liner is that it goes perfectly well for a day as well as a night look. Start a sleek winged eyeliner at the innermost corner of your eye and line your top lash line with the utmost attention. Extend the liner a little past the outer corner of your eye and finish neatly without any smudges. You can either leave your lower lash line bare or use a nude pencil on it to make your eyes pop. And that’s how you nail a sleek winged liner.

 Smudge It: 

What’s the best part about a smudge look? It doesn’t have to be precise and neat. The messier, the better! If you want to create a perfect out-of-bed eye makeup look, then go for a smudge. For this eyeliner style, you’ll need eyeliner with a smudger. Line your upper and lower lashlines with a kohl pencil and gently smudge it. Yes, it’s that simple!


MyGlamm’s Recommendation:

The jet set eyes kajal eyeliner is a long-wear kohl pencil available in three beautiful shades. It has got so much to offer from giving a semi-matte finish, long-wearing formula, to an intense colour payoff.

Thin Liner:

All those who like to keep their eyeliner minimal should go for a thin liner that is barely there. To create a thin liner with perfection, we suggest you use a gel or liquid liner. Create a super-thin outline just above your upper lashline. You can use a nude pencil on your waterline. But it’s better to just keep it bare. For your eyes to pop, add some mascara and use an eyelash curler. And you’re all set!

MyGlamm’s Recommendation:

The stay defined liquid eyeliner brow powder is a two-in-one eye makeup product allowing for a beautiful eyeliner style and neat eyebrows. So, if you’re looking for one with an intense colour payoff, matte finish with high coverage, and easy to use eyeliner, this one is for you!

Double Winged Liner:

If a simple winged liner didn’t create enough drama for you, then give your eyes a double dose of eyeliner. Once you perfect the single winged liner, then, line your lower lash line as close to the lashes as possible and extend that into a wing too. Define both the wings clearly with the help of either a white eye pencil or an eye shadow in between them. Rock this glamorous and different eyeliner style at your next party!

MyGlamm’s Recommendation:

Looking for a matte eyeliner pencil with a precise application? We’ve got you covered with MyGlamm’s LIT Matte eyeliner pencil. This is perfect for precise eye lining, intense colour payoff, creamy application, and everything you couldn’t have imagined!
