How To Apply Eyeliner For Different Eye Shapes?
1. If You Have Wide Set Eyes
Women with wide set eyes should focus on enhancing the inner corner of the eyes, which makes the eyes look close to one another. To do this, you must start with the lining of the tear duct and do not go more than the outer corner of the eyes.
2. If You Have Deep Set Eyes
If you are one of those with lovely deep set eyes, stop making the thick lines on the lids and do not smudge the liner on the top lash line, because the eyes would look more deep and sunken. What you need is a thin line as close to the lash line and only half of the outer eye should be lined- top and bottom.
3. Women With Monolid Eyes
Women with monolid eyes can wear eyeliner too, and even though the base is flat and sans the crease, there are eyeliners for eye shapes with monolid specifics to use. A thin line on the top lash line from the inner corner should be done all the way, thicker as you move ahead to the outer corner of the eye.
4. For Hooded Lids
Women with eyelids that droop downwards have hooded lids. The aim here is to make the eyelids look big with the help of eyeliner. Start with thickening of the lash base where the eyeliner should be used between the roots of the lash in thin strokes, and thicken as you head to the outer corner of the eyes.

5. For Round Eyes
If you would like to make your round eyes look long and nice, the outer edges should be lined on the lash line which brings about a flicked winged look.
6. Almond Eyes Lining
Almond eyes are the most desirable eyes to doll up, and most makeup artists would love working on such eyes. Winged eyeliners compliment the wonderful curves of such eyes and with a flick on the outer corner, a dramatic divaish look comes through.
7. For Small Eyes
The aim is to make the eyes look big, which is why the bottom tear line shouldn’t be touched with eyeliner. What you should do is swipe thin strokes on the top lash line and the outer corner of the bottom lash line only.
8. If You Have Big Eyes
Everyone wants their eyes to look big and nice, which is why different types of eyeliner should be used for the grand effect to come through. With large eyes, you must line the top and bottom lash or water lines which wouldn’t make the eyes look too small. Cat eyes and winged eyes work best here.
9. Close Set Eyes
We spoke about wide set eyes and how to line them, now let us look at close set eyes too. The outer corners of the eyes should be focused upon with a soft eye pencil, and the liner should be applied very thin at the inner corner of the eyes. The outer corner of the eyes should be lined thick and nice. If you tight line the inner corner of the eyes, it would make the eyes look smaller, so quit doing that.
We hope these nine tips on how to rightly use liner for your eye shape comes in handy. If you need more help, we would ask you to check with your parlor lady or makeup artist for the same. Always remember to respect the dimensions of your eyes and then apply liner, or else you would be at a loss when dressing up the lids. You don’t want to look aged or old using the wrong lining techniques now, do you? That is why following this mini guide on eyeliner for different eye types is a must!
