The winged cat eye look has always been the Instagram beauty mogul's go-to trend.


While a cat's eye created with a liquid liner is a statement look, this trend focuses on a softer version.

Instead of letting your top lash line have all the fun, share the love with this eyeliner trend.


Line your lower lashes with either the same colour or a lighter shade than the one on the top set of lashes. This is a super easy and fun way to add boldness to your look.

Exaggerated silhouette



Hollywood celebrity Yara Shahidi's eyeliner look is the perfect rendition of the 1960s trend.


Try this out yourself by starting with a regular wing and then draw the line over your crease for a bit more drama.


Use cotton swabs to clean up any smudges and get a crisp line.

Floating eyeliner



Would you believe it if we told you that eyeliner does not have to stick to your lash line anymore?


Grab a liner and colour outside your comfort zone for this bold trend.


The floating liner look, as seen on celeb Shay Mitchell, gives off cool vibes with barely any effort.

Straight to the point



Why follow the curves of the eye when Patrick Ta's work on model Gigi Hadid is evidence that abstract makeup styles can work?


Take the liner of your choice and draw it straight across the lid. Either run it over the crease like Hadid's look or go below to contrast roundness and make it a little more edgy.

Pastel eyeliner



While neon eyeliner might have been all the rage in 2019, this year pastel eyeliner is in, especially on Instagram.


This is a quick and easy way to add a subtle touch of colour without going overboard.

Follow the crease



Here is how to execute the sassy look makeup artist Vincent Oquendo created for Dove Cameron.


Start off by lining the crease in white, and use a metallic liner over this. Then go over it again to create a jewelled effect.


The hack for recreating this look at home is to lower your chin in the mirror and draw little dots right above your crease so you can see it.

Nude eyeliner

While white liner was big in the early 2000s, recently many makeup artists and lovers have switched over to using nude shades.


Nude eyeliner offers a brightening effect and it also looks a bit more natural. Apply the nude liner to your waterline to leave your eyes looking more awake and open.
