1 Follow Contour of Your Eyelids
Eyeliner tips for almond eyes almost always start out the same – know your eye shape, think about dark liner. However, I think that following the contour of your eyelids is honestly the most important eyeliner tip when you are dealing with almond eyes. You want them to stand out, and following along from end to end will do that for you!
When it comes to applying eyeliner for almond eyes, there are a few tips that can help ensure you get the best results. To start, it’s important to know your eye shape and choose the right type of eyeliner. For almond eyes, liquid liner is usually the best option as it allows for the most control and precision.
When it comes to applying the eyeliner, the most important tip is to follow the contour of your eyelids. This will help to enhance the shape of your eyes and make them stand out. Start at the inner corner of the eye and draw a thin line along the lash line, gradually increasing the thickness as you move towards the outer corner. Make sure to use light, feathery strokes for the best effect.
It’s also important to choose the right color for your eyeliner. Black is usually the most popular choice, but brown can be a great option for those with lighter complexions. For a more dramatic look, try a dark, navy blue or charcoal grey. You can also experiment with colors like purple, green, or even gold for a bolder look.
2 Know Your Eye Size
Remember when I mentioned your eye size? Well, you do want to know exactly how big your eyes are. This will determine how much eyeliner you need and what you are going to use. If you have smaller eyes, you want to go with thinner lines; wider eyes and bigger eyes, you want something a little thicker!
A woman's eyes speak volumes about her style. One that is unique and eye-catching is the riche le eye shadow always pearly look. It’s an all-season beauty trick that women consistently swear by. This fascinating mix of iridescence and pearly tones uplifts beauty at no great expense.
3 Ideal for the Winged Eyeliner
Did you know that almond shaped eyes are ideal for winged eyeliner? If you've never done winged eyeliner and you have almond shaped eyes, give it a try! Just a flick of your wrist upward at the end of your eye can really bring your eyes together and make them stand out! I actually go a little crazy with the winged liner for my eyes and draw it out a little bit more toward my eyebrow. It's chic and totally different!
4 Thicker Eyeliner for Night Time
With almond shaped eyes, you can go with a little thicker line – again, depending on how big or small your eyes are. Your individual shape and size will determine exactly how thick the liner should be. But remember, night time is the time to play, so really play up your eyes and make them stand out!
5 Thinner Eyeliner for Day Time
This is the opposite to #4, right? Thinner eyeliner can still make your eyes look beautiful and stand out, but it'll also be appropriate for work and even for a job interview. Thinner eyeliner doesn't stand out as much, but it'll give you that oomph that us girls look for!
6 Use the Lash Line as Your Guide
When you have almond eyes, you might not have the longest lashes in the world – then again, you might have super long eyelashes! Always use your lash line as your guide for your eyeliner. That way, you can make sure that you're really putting on your best look.
7 No Eyeliner along the Bottom Lid
There should be no eyeliner along your bottom lid. For me, I usually just line my eyes on my waterline and it really makes them pop. Try this trick and see just how awesome your eyes look! This trick can actually work for anyone that is trying not to put liner along their bottom lid.
8 Use White Liner for a Doe-eyed Look
Although black eyeliner is the more traditional pick, white eyeliner is just as good. In fact, it's perfect for making your eyes look bigger and brighter. I always add a little bit on the inner corner of my eyes because it makes them really stand out!
White eyeliner can be a great way to make your almond eyes stand out. Applying white eyeliner to the inner corners of your eyes can create the illusion of larger and brighter eyes. This trick is especially useful if you have dark eyes, as the contrast between the white and dark colors will be more noticeable.
You can also use white eyeliner to create a doe-eyed look. To do this, start by applying a thin line of white eyeliner along your upper lash line. Then, use a small brush to smudge the line outward and upward, creating a subtle wing at the outer corner of your eye. This look will give your eyes a soft and delicate appearance.
When applying white eyeliner, it’s important to choose a product that is long-lasting and smudge-proof. Look for a liner that is waterproof and has a creamy formula, as this will help to ensure that your look stays put throughout the day.
9 Smudge a Bit
Remember, not all lines have to precise. A little smudging never hurt nobody! If you line the bottom of your eyes, trace your lash line and then smudge it toward the outer corners. It'll make your eyes look wider and larger!
10 Nude Colors
You don't always have to use liner to define your eyes. If you want a subtle look that widens your eyes, try using a nude color like the Chromagraphic Pencil from maccosmetics.com (in NC15/NW20).
11 Leave Some of Your Eye Naked
Have you heard of the "dropped eyeliner" trick? It's when you draw a full line on top and apply liner to only half your bottom lid (starting from the outer corner in) You’ll be amazed at just how much it can alter your style!
So all you almond-shaped eyed girls, what other tips do you have when it comes to eyeliner? Did I get 'em all? Let us know in the comments, we love to hear from you!
