EYELINER FOR DIFFERENT EYE SHAPES

WITH KEITA MOORE
  • Ever line your eyes and think, "I can do better?" Well, you just might be right! Celebrity makeup artist Keita Moore tells us that certain eyeliner styles are better for certain eye shapes. (Almond-shaped eyes, for example, look best with a mid-wing.) And with clients like Nicki Minaj, Mariah Carey, and Iman—we're listening. So whether your eyes are round or hooded, read on and let Keita help you find the eyeliner look made for you.

  • Best eyeliner for hooded eyes is long wear eyeliner.

    BEST EYELINER STYLE FOR HOODED EYES: THICKER LINES

    "I always use longwear liner for hooded shaped eyes. I tend to go a little thicker because a thin liner will get lost and not be visible. I also pull the liner out and upward. It's important to do this with the eyes closed until the liner dries and won't transfer to the lid."

  • Best eyeliner style for round eyes is an exaggerated wing that lengthens the eye.

    BEST EYELINER STYLE FOR ROUND EYES: INNER LINES THAT EXTEND TO LENGTHEN

    "I line the upper inner lid, accentuate and pull the liner outward. This lengthens the eyes"

  • Best eyeliner style for almond eyes is a mid-wing.

    BEST EYELINER STYLE FOR ALMOND EYES: MID-WING

    "Almond eyes are always the easiest to do! You can create a liner look easily from thin lines to thicker lines. For almond eyes specifically, I love doing a mid wing but short or long, you can do no wrong."

  • Best eyeliner style for downturned eyes is liner that lifts up and out.

    BEST EYELINER STYLE FOR DOWNTURNED EYES: LINES THAT LIFT UP & OUT

    "It's all about keeping them lifted! I like to start at the outer corner and go upward and outward."
