Unique Ways To Apply Eyeliner


If you like to express yourself through makeup, then eye makeup is your best bet. A touch of kohl, eyeliner, and/or eyeshadow on the eyes can make a lot of difference to your look. Eyeliner is a favourite weapon of choice for many women to define and enhance their eyes. A swipe of the trusted eyeliner on or around the lids can make one look infinitely pretty. It is among the most versatile of makeup products and also widely used. Though black is an all time classic, eyeliners these days come in various colour options, making the application even more interesting. The choice of wands and applicators also make the eyeliners special; you can choose from a simple, plain wand to felt tip wand, sketch pen style applicator or the rolling disc wand like the Wheelie Precision Eyeliner & Stylist which helps you get perfectly even wings. Either way, eyeliners are a must-have in every woman’s makeup bag.

If you are a fan of eyeliner, you might have tried and tested the common eyeliner styles like the cat eye, different styles of winged, simple and exaggerated flick etc. But the list doesn’t end here. Just when you thought you have mastered it all, the good ole eyeliner is here to surprise you. Eyeliner is a favourite of the makeup artists and fashionista too. Often, we see the runways getting creative with the eyeliner. Here are some of the most unique and stylish ways to wear eyeliner. It’s not your basic makeup, so would you dare?

Thumbprint Eyeliner

If you are unable to master the fine tip of the eyeliner, you will love this new Thumbprint eyeliner trend. Instead of ending in a fine line, thumbprint eyeliner has a fat, rounded edge on the outside corner of your eye, like the shape of a thumbprint.

Floating eyeliner

This style veers far away from the traditional way to apply eyeliner.  Instead of applying eyeliner close to the lash line, the eyeliner is traced along the eye crease, that sort of gives it a ‘floating’ above the eyes appearance. Definitely not for the fainthearted. It is really good for people with monolids.

Graphic eyeliner

Graphic eyeliner
takes eye art to another level. The eye makeup trend involves creating shapes, with liners and shadows, on your eyelids. Eyeliner is used to draw angular lines around the eyes and on the eyelids, decorating them with asymmetric geometric patterns. It’s very futuristic and new age.

So, after mastering the single and double-winged, it’s time to try the stacked eyeliner style. It involves decorating the eyes with more than 2 wings, all stacked closely one above the other. Different colours can be used for a more exuberant effect. It requires skill as the lines need to be even and equally placed. Think of it as an optical illusion makeup.

Incomplete wings

It’s like creating the impression of a cat-eye by drawing on incomplete wings — tracing the top lashes, extending the line past the outer corners, then bringing the line back to just before the crease without filling in the negative space. Think Emma Watson who carried this look on one of her red-carpet appearances. Totally badass.

Negative space

Create patterns with the eyeliner, leaving spaces in between lines. There are hundreds of interpretations of negative space eyeliner. While doing this, one needs to trace the thick wings and leave the gaps unfilled, giving a very high fashion look.

As dots

This is the easiest and probably the sassiest way to use the eyeliner. Just wear the eyeliner as one or a few dots on the upper and/or the lower lids. Yes, that’s it. You can play with colours but mostly it’s done using black and white eyeliner.
