Eyes come in all different shapes. So, it’s no wonder there are so many different eyeliner looks floating around! (no pun intended) So, if you’re wondering which eyeliner style looks better with your eyes, you’ve come to the right place. Whether you have big eyes, small eyes, or hooded eyes, Maybelline New York can suggest the best eyeliner looks for various eye shapes!
BEST EYELINER LOOK FOR ALMOND EYES:
With almond eyes, almost any eyeliner look is a winner! You can start with a thin line, then gradually make it thicker, add designs, or opt for a dramatic winged or floating eyeliner look, which is not only attention-grabbing but so much fun! Try using a liquid ink eyeliner like Tattoo Studio Ink Pen Black Liquid Eyeliner and let your imagination run wild. This liquid eyeliner formula does not fade or smudge and lasts up to 24 hours.

BEST EYELINER LOOK FOR HOODED EYES:
A classic cat eye or winged eyeliner look is perfect for hooded eyes. The trick for hooded eyes is laying eyeliner on thick—literally! You want to be able to see your gorgeous creations, and a thick line won’t get hidden like a thin line of eyeliner will. Try using a long-wearing liquid liner like Tattoo Studio Ink Pen Black Liquid Eyeliner for bold precise lines. This intense liquid eyeliner pen is waterproof, smudge-proof, flake & fade-resistant. Start at the inner corner of eye and glide the precise brush tip along the lash line and drag across eye. Meow!
BEST EYELINER LOOK FOR MONOLID EYES:
Your best bet for monolid eyes is to extend, extend, extend. Go for a super exaggerated winged look for intense shape and definition. We recommend using an all-day liquid eyeliner like Eyestudio Master Precise Long-Lasting Liquid Eyeliner. In just one stroke, this long-wearing, water and smudge-proof eyeliner delivers ultimate matte intensity with 12-hour wear. Draw smooth, even lines starting at the inner corner of the upper eyelid and move the precision felt tip outwards.
BEST EYELINER LOOK FOR BIG EYES:
Big eyes look best with eyeliner that adds a little intensity to the upper and lower lash lines. No need for a winged look (unless you really want to turn heads!), as big eyes speak for themselves! Reach for a gel pencil like TattooStudio Sharpenable Longwear Gel Pencil Eyeliner for fade-resistant wear. This sharpenable pencil eyeliner delivers pigment-rich hues, precise definition, and an up to 36-hour wear! Line along the upper and bottom lash line.
BEST EYELINER LOOK FOR SMALL EYES:
Make small eyes look bigger with white eyeliner! Lining your lower waterline with white eyeliner will help eyes appear brighter and wider and give more of a pop! Try TattooStudio Sharpenable Longwear Gel Pencil Eyeliner in shade polished white. This smudge and fade-resistant long-wear eyeliner delivers ultra-intense color and a smooth finish for 36 hours. Line along the upper and bottom lash line.
BEST EYELINER LOOK FOR ROUND EYES:
Smokey eyes or an exaggerated wing are perfect for round eyes as these styles help elongate the look of eyes. For a sexy smokey look, try Tattoo Liner Smokey Gel Eyeliner Pencil. This gel pencil liner glides smoothly with a long-lasting tattoo matte finish and up to 36-hour wear. Apply along the upper lid and lower lash line for intensity, then use the blender to smudge out the look.
BEST EYELINER LOOK FOR ASYMMETRICAL EYES:
Eyeliner can quickly fix the appearance of asymmetrical eyes! After lining your larger eye, apply eyeliner to the smaller eye and mirror the look to make it appear wider and more symmetrical to the other eye. Try using a long-lasting eyeliner like Unstoppable Mechanical Eyeliner Pencil. This waterproof and smudge-resistant eyeliner delivers natural or bold color that lasts all day and has a point that always stays sharp.
BEST EYELINER LOOK FOR WIDE-SET EYES:
A clean line of eyeliner on top and bottom with a short upward wing is ideal for those with wide-set eyes. Try a waterproof gel liner like Tattoo Liner Smokey Gel Eyeliner Pencil. This long-lasting smudge-proof liner delivers a tattoo matte finish for a smokey, blurred look for up to 36 hours. Apply along the upper lid and lower lash line, then use the blender to smudge out the look.
BEST EYELINER FOR CLOSE-SET EYES:
Close-set eyes benefit by only applying eyeliner from the middle of the eye and moving it outward. Try an all-day liquid eyeliner like Eyestudio Master Precise Long-Lasting Liquid Eyeliner. It’s a water and smudge-proof eyeliner that delivers precise definition with 12-hour wear. Draw smooth, even lines starting from the middle of the lid and move the brush tip outwards.
BEST EYELINER LOOK FOR DEEP-SET EYES:
A small line of eyeliner that starts from the middle of the lid and right to the lash line is the perfect style for deep-set eyes. Reach for a waterproof liquid eyeliner like Tattoo Studio Ink Pen Black Liquid Eyeliner. This vegan liquid eyeliner delivers dark pigments for intense tattoo impact and up to 24-hour wear. The precise brush tip will help you seamlessly glide along the lash line.
