Smaller Eyes

  • Keep your liner line on the thinner side and very close to your lashes.
  • Too thick of a line can come across raccoon-like and cause the eyes to appear smaller than they are.
  • Either liquid or pencil will work for you!

Bigger Eyes

  • Go for a thicker line when applying your liner.
  • This will help really define the eye and make your lashes appear thicker and fuller!
  • Either liquid or pencil will work for you.

Hooded Eye

  • Make sure you go for for a waterproof liner.
  • Keep the liner close to the roots of your lashes; once applied, look down until the liner is COMPLETELY dry. If you don’t, you risk some serious smudging.

Deep-Set Eyes

  • Instead of using a black or brown liner, try your “complementary” color.
  • If you have green eyes, try violet.
  • If you have brown eyes, blues or violets look great.
  • Bronze looks amazing with blue eyes!

Almond Eyes

  • Use the cat-eye look to your advantage – this look is stunning on almond shaped eyes!
  • Extend your liner, either pencil or liquid, to a subtle (or non-subtle) wing at the end.

Wide-Set Eyes

  • Either formula of liner will work for you.
  • Starting on the inside corners of your lid, start lining with a thicker line and thin it out toward the end.
  • Cat-eye is not your best look, so try and keep the liner inside the lid.

Close-Set Eyes

  • Don’t start your liner all the way to the inside of the lid.
  • Instead, start your liner slightly past the midpoint of your upper lid.
  • Work the liner outward and wing it out at the ends.
