Not everyone is brave enough to take on an eyeliner look. It’s an advance makeup tool and the one product that can make or break your entire makeup look—if you smudge it, you’ll have to repeat the whole prep process.
Pulling off a great eyeliner trick can take several practices. Like selecting a foundation for your skin tone, determining which eyeliner trick suites your eye shape is a great start to prevent those smudge booboos.
So here are some handy hints on how to apply eyeliner to suit your eye shape, size, and position:
When your eyelid droops down over the crease when your eyes are open, it makes it difficult for you to see your crease.
A great trick for those who have hooded eyes: start by thickening your lash base; a thin line can get easily lost when your eye is open. Apply your liner thicker at the outer corner of your eye making a thick, bold wing, giving your eye added definition.
The easiest technique for those who have almond-shaped eyes is to follow its natural shape to build thickness towards the outer half, then go nuts with a winged liner to complement the beautiful curves of your eyes.

Creating a thin line is the key to enhance natural symmetry and shape of your eyes. This trick works best for upturned eyes because your eyes draw upward at the outer corners, appearing slightly tilted.
If you’re blessed with monolids, you know the cat-eye struggle; flat on the surface and have no crease or at least a small one.
It’s key to add dimension by starting with a medium to a thick line from the inner to outer corner of your upper lid, creating the illusion of depth.
With the most flattering eyeliner look, the goal is to elongate the width of your eye shape to create balance.
This trick is best for down-turned eyes, start by a line 45-degrees higher from the middle of your eye to fake a lift. Try leaning your head back, then licking the end up toward your temples to create a lift illusion.
Creating a statement eyeliner fits all kinds of eye shapes, but to do so, you must have a powerful tool on hand. Try the new Maybelline Line Tattoo Crayon—built to last like a tattoo, with its waterproof, smudge-proof, and sweat-proof formula perfect for delivering smooth strokes for that creative look.
