White Cat Eye

Instead of a traditional cat eye, try a white eyeliner to make the look fresh. The effect is more opening and awake, which is especially helpful if you have smaller eyes or a tendency to look tired.


Colored Pencils As Eyeliner

This may not be an everyday look, but it’s great for special occasions. Watch this episode of Makeup Mythbusters to see Maybaby and Chloe East try it out.



An underline is a risky look, because it can drag eyes downward. But it’s fashion-forward enough to complement a mod outfit or an out-of-the-ordinary event.


Artistic Lining

Okay, this one admittedly takes some practice. Luckily, there’s tons of inspiration all over the web. Use photos and templates to get an idea of the zig zag or curved lines you like, then practice getting the symmetry and filling in perfectly.
