The Upper Lid
Just as you would perfect a cat-eye look with a black liner, so you can switch things up by opting for white eyeliner instead. Trace the upper lid with a white liquid liner, adding a flick towards the outer corner of your eye. The eye will appear bigger and brighter, beautifully complementing dark skin. To best achieve this look, try NYX Professional Makeup Liquid Crystal Liner in White. Its creamy formulation is easy to apply, and it dries to a matte finish.
The Lower Lid
Say goodbye to tired eyes and black circles forever with the simple application of white eyeliner on your lower lid. Perfect for those looking to open up their eyes, simply trace the eyeliner along your lower lash line, flicking up towards the end. Pair with a mirrored black line on your top lid, and one below your white liner if you like, for a trendy new look that others are sure to mimic. We love L’Oréal Paris Infallible Paints Eyeliner in White Party for this look.
Inside Your Waterline
While applying black eyeliner inside your eyelid can result in your eyes appearing smaller, applying white eyeliner in the same way has the opposite effect. Line your lower waterline with a white pencil to accentuate the eyes and enjoy what it does for your eye colour, too. For a product that allows both a black and white look and one that won’t irritate your eyes, try Urban Decay 24/7 Double Ended Eye Pencil.
The Double Sweep
While you may not opt for this eyeliner style for an everyday look, when the moment calls for it, applying white eyeliner to both your top and bottom lids will certainly turn heads. Trace your pencil from the inner corners of your eye outwards, in a swift movement that allows for a flick at the end. All you’ll need is a smudge-proof pencil, Maybelline Lasting Drama Light Eyeliner in White Luster will do the trick!
Your Inner Corners
Tracing only the inner corners of your eye with white eyeliner is a great way to brighten up an already dark eye. If your eyes are positioned close together, it’s also an effective way of creating some distance between them. Sleepy eyes are instantly rejuvenated, and you’ll be ready for any occasion. For easy application, we suggest NYX Professional Makeup Mechanical Eye Pencil in White.
