Eyeliner for Close-Set Eyes
To give your eyes the illusion of being farther apart, use a brightening pencil on the inner corners of your eyes, near your nose. Just a dot of highlight creates the illusion of space. Try cult favourite Benefit Eye Bright Pencil for a radiant look.
On the outer corners of your eyes, make a thick sideways V with a dark shade of liner over your upper and lower lash line.
Eyeliner for Small Eyes
To make your eyes look larger, use a dark eyeliner along your upper and lower lash line, and then smudge it. Although you should go all the way around your lashes, you want to keep the look natural so it doesn’t overwhelm your eyes.
Want to take your style to the next level? Add the aforementioned Benefit Eye Bright Pencil to the inner corner of your eyes for a doe-eyed look.
Eyeliner for Monolids
The cat eye is perfect for monolid eye shapes. Make a sideways V at the outer edge of your eyes. Don’t worry about it being perfect. Use a soft pencil, and then smudge the lines.
