As someone who loves playing with makeup, I favor one product above all the rest: eyeliner. Whether you want to use neutral eyeliner to create a workday fox eye or a bright color to create a graphic look, it's one of the most versatile makeup products out there. Eyeliner comes in just about every color under the sun, has many different formulations, and can be used in tons of ways.
Over the years, there have been plenty of eyeliner trends. We've seen smoky eyes, cat eyes, tightliner, and more recently, iterations like siren eyes and doe eyes. There's no shortage of ideas for how to wear eyeliner, and the trends are constantly evolving.
If you've been looking for fresh eyeliner ideas to try as the seasons change, look no further. I've rounded up 15 out-of-this-world eyeliner ideas to try, ranging from outrageously fun to subtle and barely there. Keep reading for tons of inspiration to try during your next glam sesh.
Lizzo's pink-and-blue graphic eyeliner is not for the faint at heart. It's perfect for anyone hoping to make a statement (and pairs well with chrome nails).
You can never go wrong with a classic cat eye. Pair it with nude lips like Selena Gomez did, or opt for a fire-engine red to make a statement.
Royal-blue eyeliner makes every single eye color pop. Smoke it out a little bit to make it wearable in every situation.
A diffused wing is the perfect everyday eyeliner look. Pair it with bold brows and a salmon-tinted lipstick for a laid-back vibe.
Grunge is making a major comeback. To lean into this trend, rim your eyes with charcoal liner.
A smoked-out fox eye is one of the easiest liner looks to try at home. Start with a neutral base eye shadow, and draw a tiny wing on the edge. Blend with a brush to keep it diffused.
Leave it to Megan Fox to make orange eyeliner look impeccable. To try this out, take a tangerine shade and draw a half-moon from the inner brow bone to the inner corners.
Take a heavy smoky eye for a spin like Ciara did. For maximum impact, pair with nude lips.
Somehow, Hailey Bieber manages to make pink-and-green eyeliner look subtle. To achieve this look for yourself, draw a curved line with green eyeliner just above your inner corners and flick a small pink wing out at the edges.
Leave it to Kim Kardashian to rock the ultimate siren eye, one of this season's major trends. This sultry look elongates eyes and is reminiscent of '90s supermodels.
Floating liner doesn't have to make a major statement. Try it in a shimmery lilac for an ethereal vibe.
Amp up any liner look with face gems. This bejeweled look has quickly become a staple for anyone looking to add some instant drama.
Take graphic liner to new heights by drawing it on a glitter base. A glossy lip adds even more glitz.
