8 Trending 2024 Eyeliner Looks to Try

There’s no doubt about it, playing with makeup is fun. Between the rainbow of colors to experiment with and the new and exciting product formulations to try, creativity can flow freely, resulting in lots of interesting makeup looks. While trying new lipsticks, blushes, and highlighters are fun in their own right, it’s the eyes that really allow your inner artist to shine through. Depending on the color and shape of your eyes, there are certain styles and colored eyeliner looks that can enhance them, but if you’re simply looking for a new eyeliner trend to try, these are the top eight for 2024.

1. Graphic Geometric Eyeliner

Playing it safe with liner along your upper and lower lashlines is a classic look that can take you from day to night and everywhere in between, but if you want to make a statement, graphic geometric eyeliner is where it’s at. We’re fans of floating liner in the crease because it’s easy to create, but at the same time, it makes a big impact. To get the line nice and crisp, you’ll want to go for a liquid eyeliner pen like Eye Studio Master Precise Liquid Eyeliner. It comes in five shades including a striking Satin Black shade that pairs perfectly with a graphic, yet simple design. The smudge-proof, waterproof formula ensures all-day wear, so you can rest assured that your geometric look is intact no matter what your day entails. To up the ante, go all in with a double liner look using another color like white or blue for contrast.

2. Blue Eyeliner

In color theory, the idea is that the opposing colors on the color wheel are complementary. So, when you think of it in terms of eye color, brown eyes tend to pop when wearing blue. That’s not to say you can’t wear blue if you have any other eye color, but it is good to know if your goal is to play up the color of your eyes. With blue in particular, we love to experiment with different shades, which may mean one color blue on the top lash line and another color blue on the bottom. To do this, a gel pencil that you can smudge out is key. Try our Tattoo Studio Gel Pencil, which comes in several shades of blue with matte and metallic finishes.

3. Green Eyeliner

Because there are so many different shades of green, it looks good on virtually every skin tone. From emerald to olive, it’s easy to find a beautiful green shade that will flatter you and your coloring. Eye Studio Master Precise Liquid Eyeliner comes in a gorgeous Emerald Green shade and Color Tattoo Eye Stix has a shimmering olive called I Am Fierce. Whichever one you choose, the looks are endless– go classic with matching liner on the top and bottom or experiment with something new like the reverse eyeliner trend, which emphasizes the bottom lash line rather than the top.

4. Brown Eyeliner

Brown has been having a major moment as of late and for good reason. As black’s subtler sister, brown is much more wearable and a great point of entry for someone who wants a natural look. Brown also makes for a sultry smokey eye that doesn’t feel too over the top. Reach for Tattoo Studio Smokey Gel Pencil, which comes with a handy built-in blender to smoke out the matte shade before it sets, leaving you with 36-hours of smudge-proof and waterproof wear.

5. Kitten Eyeliner

If a cat eye intimidates you, let us introduce you to kitten eyeliner. Instead of going all out with a full-on feline flick, the kitten style calls for just a tiny point at the end of your upper lash line, which not only gives you definition, but also emphasizes your eye shape and makes lashes look thicker. This style is great for all eye shapes, but looks especially great on upturned eyes because all you have to do is follow the natural shape of your eye with a liquid liner such as Eye Studio Master Precise Liquid Eyeliner.

6. Grunge Eyeliner

The rocker girlfriend look is all the rage these days, which means oversized band tees, combat boots, and grunge eyeliner liner are in vogue. Lucky for us, the look couldn’t be easier to achieve because it’s meant to appear messy and imperfect. And we have the perfect eyeliner for it – Color Tattoo Eye Stix has a matte black shade called I am Rebellious (we told you it was perfect!) and its smooth consistency allows for an easy glide on your lid and lashline. Just make sure you follow it up with lots of mascara to get the look just right.

7. Holographic Eyeliner

If you want a look that’s out of this world, this is the one for you. What you need: an eyeliner that has some shimmer to it like one of the six shades in Tattoo Studio Gel Pencil’s Metallic Pop collection. These eye-catching colors have the perfect amount of sparkle to them so they catch the light without feeling too trendy or unwearable. Pro tip: go in with the matte white shade first, then trace over it with the metallic eyeliner of your choice – this will ensure that the color and shimmer really pop.

8. 90s inspired Eyeliner

With the return of all things ’90s, think: nude lips, baby brows, and a heavy contour, comes the resurgence of tightlining. If you missed it the first time it was popular, tightlining is the application of eyeliner on the waterline. Recently, it made a comeback in the form of white liner because it has the power to open up the eye and make your eyes appear larger. But, you can also use other colors for a ’90s supermodel look. The most important thing is to use a waterproof formula like Color Tattoo Eye Stix to prevent raccoon eyes.
