If you want to step up your A-Game when it comes to eye makeup skills, your #eyeliner has to be #onfleek
Yes, we're talking about those razor sharp wings you see all over Insta that give you major #makeupgoal vibes.
But if you're like us and need a little help in this department, there's so many other (easier and beginner friendly) alternatives, so you too, can flaunt beautifully graphic eyes.
Soft Cut Crease X Colored Winged Liner
You want to create a soft cut crease here to compliment the liner yet don't go too dramatic as you want all eyes on the liner! You can create your regular winged eyeliner look then carefully fill in the wing with any color of your choice. Metallics and glitter are super hot right now, so get creative! You may even want to go all out with ombre liner!
Pops of Color
One of our favorite ways to add color to any neutral look is to add an unexpected color pop! It's a great way to tszuj up your daytime neutrals. You can also easily transform a basic smokey eye. This keeps the look fun, fresh and it's usually pretty simple to do but creates a pretty big statement. Learn how to create the not so neutral look below, here.
Colored Liner X Glitter
If you're feeling super adventurous and just want to go all in - check out this #amazeballs #dope #thisiswhyimlate look.
It's a combination of everything: color, glitter, double winged liner and that inner lower lashline - #slay!
Double Wing X Accent Liner
Here's a fun way to incorporate color or glitter into a heavily lined eye look. You can swipe a line parallel to your regular winged liner or add it right below the wing. Or to make it extra dramatic, like the look below, create a double wing then add your fun accent. Tutorial for the look below, here.
Graphic Eyes X Bold Lips
This liner has major retro vibes. It's basically an extreme winged liner look + cut crease connected! The best part, you really don't need any eyeshadow here. If you are a fan of color, check out this look.
Double Cut Crease X Double Liner
So this insane look has major editorial vibes! As if a regular cut crease isn't dramatic enough as it is, this double cut crease takes it to a whole 'nother level! The sienna brown cut crease compliments the beautiful gradient ombre eyeshadow on the lid and the negative space crease adds an extra layer of dimension. If we just stopped here, this would be a stunning look as is. With the feline inner corner paired with the winged liner - so fierce! If you look close enough, it's actually a triple wing! If you're dying to try this look, you're in luck because there's a step by step how-to right here.
Metallic or Glitter Liner
Transform your matte looks with metallic or glitter liner. This is the easiest way to add sparkle and make your look festive especially during the holidays! It's a very striking and bold look especially if you have a dark eyeshadow base, so you might want to keep the rest of your face fairly neutral.

Go all out with electric color combinations by adding colored liner on the upper lashline as well as on the bottom waterline. To make the look more interesting, add a similar shade on the lower lashline with a different finish or texture to seam the look together. For example, if your liner is matte, go for a shimmery shadow. Get this look with this step by step tutorial.
White eyeliner is a great option to open up and illuminate the eyes for that doll eyed effect. It also gives the illusion of larger eyes so if you have very round or larger eyes you might want to opt out on this look. If you want to try this look without it looking so pronounced, try adding your regular dark winged liner and then just add a double flick or wing with the second being a white shade. It really makes your liner pop and more animated.
Colored Gradient Liner
Last but not least, gradient liner. This look is probably one of the easiest out of this list but it works great on a neutral lid for a nice added color pop. Learn how to achieve this look right here.
