1. Eyeliner on the crease
While this look might seem a bit crazy and wild, you should know that it is actually one of the most flattering out there for any eye type. It is also incredibly fast to draw. You should begin with grooming your brows because they are the ones carrying this special look. With your liner brush, start drawing a fine line starting at the inner corner of your eye. You should simply follow your crease line and do that iconic wing at the outer corner of the brow. While this is very modern and chic, it still ahs that classy feel to it. You can leave it like this or you can also connect your eyelid with the end of the winged liner. You can even add some black eyeshadow to make the look more intense.
2. The reversed cat eye
This upside down cat eye look is even more feline than the classic style. It is very simple to do as it is practically a normal cat eye but on your lower lid. Follow the natural line of your lower eyelashes with the brush of the eyeliner. At the outer corner if the eye, execute that wing but do not extend it too much. Add a few coats of black mascara and you’re good to go. Avoid putting eyeshadow on your upper lid for this look. You can take a buffing brush and buff the sharp line of eyeliner if you feel like it.
3. Colorful eyeliner
Who says that a cat eye needs to be done only with black eyeliner? Nobody! This is why you can do it using any color of eyeliner because nowadays most companies have them. You can either choose to do the classic wing with this colored liner or you can do the black one and add a colored line above it. It’s all up to you!
