Five Basic Eyeliner Styles Every Woman Should Know
It is always fun to switch up your makeup look, which is why I am sharing with you the five basic eyeliner styles every woman should know. Whether you like the simple makeup look, or like to go for something more dramatic, every woman should master the five basic eyeliner styles. Don't always stick to one makeup look, step outside your comfort zone and accentuate your eyes with different eyeliner styles.
1. The Natural Eyeliner Style.
The natural eyeliner style is simply when you line your upper eye lid. This is for the days when you are running late, or just for the days when you are running errands, when you don’t need to glam up but still want to look lovely. If there is one basic eyeliner you should definitely perfect, it is this one.
2. The Winged Eyeliner Style.
It wouldn't be a list of basic eyeliner styles without the winged eyeliner, also known as the cat eye. This is for when you want to add a little bit of drama to your eyes, The winged eyeliner style is perfect for events, weddings, dates, etc.
3. The All Around Eyeliner Style.
Or as I like to call it, the Arabian eyeliner style, where you line your eyes all around, from the upper eye lid, to the inner waterline of your eyes. The all around eyeliner goes perfectly with the smokey eye look. However, if your eyes are small, try to stay away from this eyeliner style.
4. The Cleopatra Eyeliner Style.
The Cleopatra eyeliner style is for the daring woman inside of you. Basically it is the winged eyeliner style, but with some edge. So, instead of the ending your look at the wing of the eyeliner, continue on, extending the eyeliner from the outer corner of the eye to the lower lash line.
5. The V-shaped Eyeliner Style.
The V-shaped eyeliner style is definitely one of the easiest eyeliner styles every woman should know. It is usually done with an angled brush, drawing a line from the outer part of the lower lash line upwards, and connecting it with the eyeliner in your upper eye lid. I like to think of the V-shaped eyeliner style as the perfect way to accentuate your eyes, especially if your eyes are small and need defining.Check out the illustrations below of the five basic eyeliner styles every woman should know of, and tell us which one is your go to.
