Beauty Hack: 26 Ways to Line Your Lids

Looking for a beauty hack to enhance your peepers? How about 26 of them? Whether you need an understated daytime look, or you’re looking to wow at your next party, we’re outlining a generous handful of eyeliner tips and tricks. So line your lids with your desired color, prep your brows, and round out the look with flawless foundation. You’ll be turning heads all day and night long.

1. Prep Lids: Before applying eyeliner, prep the lids with a natural-colored eye shadow. It will even your skintone and prevent the liner from smudging throughout the day. (via Harpers Bazaar)

2. Top Lashline: This one is for the eyeliner newbs out there. With a kohl pencil, apply liner from the inner corners of your eyes to the outer corners. (via Total Beauty)

3. Thin Line: A perfect thin line paired with a pastel shadow achieves the ying and yang of that soft but bold look. (via Daily Makeover)

4. Brighten Eyes: If you’re a natural gal who’s feeling a little sleepy, no one needs to know it. Just follow this easy trick. Apply a beige-colored liner to your lower inner rim, and you’re suddenly wide awake. (via Total Beauty)

5. Cobalt Blue: Get ready to meet your new obsession. Your winter look has just been upgraded with a bold cobalt accent. (via Refinery 29)

6. Smudged Wraparound: Chances are, you rocked the ring-around-the-eye liner back in high school. But you probably didn’t understand smudging. (If you did, you were more advanced than we were.) Either way, let’s all consider this an education. Smudging is essential if you don’t want to look like an angsty teen. (via Total Beauty)
