Eyeliner is a makeup classic but it is always so difficult to get the right shape, and get it looking the same on both eyes. We have put together a handy guide to help you create the right eye flick to suit the shape of your eyes.

Almond Eyes

Almond shaped eyes will suit almost any eyeliner look. Our favourite way to enhance the almond shape is to start with a thin line from the inner corner until you reach two thirds of the way across the lid. From here you then start to build up the thickness. You can create a neat line with a liquid liner or use a soft pencil for a smokier finish.

Round Eyes

Round eyes always look so striking and elongating the outer corner really compliments them. All you need to do is line the outer two thirds of the top and bottom lashes and then join this line together. You can then add a wing if you prefer. The aim is to extend the liner towards where your brow finishes rather that doing an upward flick.

Hooded Eyes

Some people like to give the illusion of slightly more open eyes, in which case avoid wearing too much liner. By applying your liner to the water liner you get the look of wearing liner without having any on your actual lid. To further open up your eyes apply a little cream shadow to the inner corner of your eye. Curling your lashes will also help to open up your eyes.


Monolid Eyes

Monolid shaped eyes look great with a classic cat eye. To give your eyes some definition create a cat eye shape using a soft pencil and then smudge this up and out for a smokey look. Now go over this using a liquid liner for a more defined winged finish.
