Change Your Whole Look by Changing Your Eyeliner

The Power of Different Eyeliner Styles

An easy way to change up your entire makeup look without spending a lot of money is to use different eyeliner styles. Lining just your upper or lower lashlines instead of both, experimenting with shapes, and using different colors of liner can bring a totally different style to your your look.

Check out the list below for some fun eyeliner styles to try for different occasions and outfits.

1. Arabian (or Arabic)

Arabian style eyeliner will give you a stunning and dramatic eye look for special occasions. To do it, thickly line both upper and lower lashlines, then connect them and extend them past the corners of the eye out into a thick cat-eye shape. This look is best achieved with dark or bright colors (especially deep black) in a gel, liquid, or kohl liner.

2. Winged (or Cat-Eye)

Winged eyeliner extends from the outer corner of the eye.


Winged eyeliner is one of the most popular and versatile eyeliner styles. To achieve it, use a gel or liquid liner on top lids and draw the line past the outer corners of the eyes. The difference from the Arabian look is that you only line your upper lashline instead of both. This look is great because you can make the line thick or thin, short or long, straight or angled. It also looks fun in colors like deep purple and navy as well as black.
