The beauty of colored eyeliner is that a little goes a long way—even a tiny little slash of color along the upper and/or lower rims of lashes adds a real edge to classic looks. Wilder cat eyes or smoky eyes done in colors looks great but can read a bit ‘80s—which isn’t a bad thing. You can also line your eyes with classic brown or black as you would normally, then layer a bit of colored liner just at the inner or outer corners of the eye for a balance of definition and color.
A lot of people love colored eyeliner for its ability to enhance eye color in a way no other makeup can, since it's super-close to the iris and sets off your eye hue in the most flattering way. Certain eyeliner colors bring out certain eye hues best:
