Recent TikTok trends and filters have been leading people to believe that they’ve been doing their eyeliner wrong their entire life. These filters are starting all new makeup trends and we have all the info for you here. So, are you getting bored of that simply winged liner you’ve been doing with all your looks since 2016? Although it’s a classic and works for everything, here’s 5 ways to spice up your eyeliner this week!
This was a big hit amongst everyone on TikTok. It seemed that no one had thought that downturned eyeliner could be used for everyday looks. A lot of the downturned eyeliner that we’ve seen before in makeup looks comes from creative looks, not looks that are worn out. However, as more people saw what downturned eyeliner looked like on them, it seemed that more and more people like downturned eyeliner more than they like their average wing. It’s extremely exciting that this specific eyeliner trend gives you the option of how downturned you’d really like it to be. The angle is everything and can change a whole look in seconds, so make sure to proceed with caution when trying this out for the first couple of times. A lot of people are saying it suits their face shape and eye shape more than a classic wing. Whether or not you think something fits your eye shape, we think this new eyeliner trend looks super cool and we can’t wait to see it being worn out more!
Love the Y2K styles that have come around recently but want to take it one step further? 90’s trends always make a comeback, and this is one we’re rooting for! Think of your favorite 90’s staple characters – people like Monica Geller from friends come to mind, don’t they? The simple black ring of eyeliner she wore constantly is a classic and bringing it back would only be right! A little goes a long way here, so try putting some black eyeliner on your waterline and maybe just a little bit on the top lid. Adding just a bit of black to your waterline can really make both your eye color and eyeshadow looks pop. Try adding it at the end of your eyeshadow look and just see how much it transforms your look! Bigger isn’t always better and in this case – you’ll find that we’re right!
More popular amongst grungier groups, smudged eyeliner is slowly making a comeback. Think of people like Avril Lavigne. Although you might associate some of these looks with goth or “emo” looks, you can style this eyeliner in many ways. By smudging out a black eyeliner, you can go for an edgier style – whether for you that means grunge or sexy depends on the rest of your stylistic choices for the day. Smudging black eyeliner in the right direction can create a smokey eye effect without all the hassle of eyeshadow going into the look.
You can try simply smudging your eyeliner a bit with your finger – you might find that this is the grungier style – or you can try smudging your eyeliner with an eyeshadow brush, which can help you create that smokey look you’re searching for.
Brown eyeliner is your fast pass to finishing your makeup look. Feel like doing your eyeshadow, eyeliner, and lashes is just taking too much time out of your routine? Try using a brown eyeliner on your lids! Brown eyeliner can be used in a million different ways. The style choices here are basically endless, but we can give you a few ideas.
Try doing your regular wing in brown! You don’t always have to layer this on top of an eyeshadow look, you could just do the eyeliner in this case, and it gives a little extra emphasis to the eyes. People who see your makeup look will notice that you went the extra mile with your eye makeup, even if you didn’t do an entire look!
You can also try adding brown liner to a simply glossy makeup look. Feeling like the gloss on your lips and the shimmer on your lids are just a little too much? Brown eyeliner is a perfect way to balance out that shininess and add a little matte to the mix. Brown eyeliner specifically looks gorgeous when you layer it on top of gold, iridescent shadows. The color story of these looks is something that will make your friends just say “Wow.”
Feeling frisky this week? Let’s start getting a little more creative then! We’ve all seen tons of graphic eyeliner looks all over social media and it seems we all just keep saying “How?” Well, the golden rule is that practice makes perfect, so if you have the extra time today, try, try, and try again until you come out with a gorgeous creative piece on your eyelids. Getting this fun, creative look off social media and into our daily lives can be so fun. I’m tired of looking at everyone with the same makeup look in public every day. It’s 2022 and this is your chance to make it a year of expression!
I think it goes without saying that there are a million different ways to get creative with graphic eyeliner looks. The lines can go in any direction you want – you can find tons of inspiration on Pinterest and Instagram! Try overlapping lines or doing intersections with them. You can also choose any color you’d like! You can find many different colored eyeliners at your local Ulta or Sephora, but if that’s a little out of range you can also use colored eyeshadows! With the right brush and base, those eyeshadow colors that you never use can become a beautiful graphic eyeliner look!
