Makeup looks are always coming in and out of trend. And with each new season, comes new trends as well. This Spring, eyeliner is going to be a big thing.There are so many variations of this trend to choose from as well. This list will help outline all the various eyeliner trends, so you can choose the ones that you for sure want to try out when Spring comes along.
1. Colorful Eyeliner
Most people associate Spring with a lot of fun colors. So, your eyeliner look should incorporate color as well. Spring is the perfect time to trade in your regular black eyeliner for a brighter color. There are so many shades available to choose from. Urban Decay’s 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil comes in over 20 shades. There are options in red, yellow, green, blue, purple and pink. You can also choose between matte shades and eyeliners with a glittery finish as well. This product is also extremely long-lasting, so you won’t have to worry about your color fading away or smudging. You can apply this product to your eyelids or use it on your waterline for two very different looks. Using colored eyeliner adds a fun pop of color to your makeup look, which is perfect for Spring.
2. Winged Eyeliner
Winged eyeliner is one of the eyeliner trends that seems to never go out of style. It is a classic look, which earns its place on this list. Winged eyeliner can make your eyes appear larger and therefore makes you look more awake, which is a win-win. This look can be intimidating, since it can be challenging to make your wings look even on both eyes. I recommend starting with a liquid eyeliner that has a thin tip or brush, so that you can make precise lines. Then apply tape from the outer corner of your eye diagonally towards the end of your eyebrow. This piece of tape will help guide you as you use your eyeliner to create the perfect wing. After you have drawn the wing, you can remove the tape and you’re left with perfect and equal wings on both eyes. This look just takes a little bit of practice, but you’ll be able to master it in no time.
3. Glitter Eyeliner
Glitter is another fun alternative to regular eyeliner. It can add a lot to a look, but only requires one extra product. Glitter is perfect for looks when you are going out or going to a special occasion. The key is just to not overdo it. I recommend using a glitter liquid eyeliner because it is easy to apply and won’t get as messy as trying to apply regular glitter. The glitter liquid eyeliner can be applied to your eyelid. This will look beautiful when it’s paired with a smokey eye look or just any neutral colors. I recommend only using glitter with neutral colors. If you put glitter over bright eye shadows, it can look like too much and can end up looking messy.
4. White Eyeliner
White eyeliner is an underrated look. It can do so much for your makeup. When white eyeliner is applied on your waterline, it can make your eyes look wider and makes the whites of your eyes look whiter as well. Both of these results can help you look more awake, which is always a good thing. The best method is to take a sharpened white eyeliner pencil and carefully apply it to your waterline, which is just above your lower lash line. This simple step can transform your makeup look and make you look more alert and put together almost instantly.
5. Brown Eyeliner
This is one of the more common eyeliner trends, but it’s still worth mentioning. Most people opt for black eyeliner, so brown eyeliner usually doesn’t get the recognition it deserves. However, it should be a staple for creating neutral eye looks. Brown eyeliner looks beautiful when paired with tan, brown or even black eyeshadows. You can apply it to your eyelid or waterline as well. I sometimes prefer brown eyeshadow over black eyeshadow because it is easier to apply. It doesn’t smudge as easily, which makes it less messy as well. It also doesn’t look as harsh as black eyeliner does. Brown eyeliner is perfect for more natural looks where black eyeliner might be too intense.
6. Black Eyeliner
Black eyeliner is one of those eyeliner trends that will also be popular. It is so versatile and goes with almost every look. Every girl should have at least one black eyeliner in her makeup bag or collection. The key is to find one that is waterproof or long-lasting. The most common problem is that black eyeliner smudges and can end up leaving dark smudges and marks around your eyes throughout the day. You also have to learn to not rub your eyes when you’re wearing eyeliner in order to help prevent this from happening. My favorite option for black eyeliner is the Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil that I mentioned before. However, if you’re looking for a cheaper option, there are some great drugstore dupes available as well. L’Oreal has the Infallible Pro-Last Waterproof Eyeliner, that is only around $7. Loreal’s Infallible line also makes waterproof liquid eyeliners that are perfect for applying to your eyelid. Whichever version you choose, you will not be disappointed with L’Oreal’s formulas that stay in place all day and keep your eye look looking perfect.
