Almond-shaped, hooded, round, wide-set and close-set. We all have a different eye shape we’re working with, and in turn, require different approaches to eyeliner, right? Wrong! We’ve discovered the perfect trick to flawless eyeliner that works for every eye shape. No, really.
Step 1: Dot It
Use the pointed side of the eyeliner brush and a cream or gel eyeliner to create a line of dots as close as possible to your upper lash line.
Step 2: Connect It
Taking the smudging side, blend the dots together to create one smooth, unified stroke: “I promise any person who has trouble making a straight line will be an expert in using eyeliner [with this method],” says makeup artist Ricardo Costales.
Step 3: Flair It
To add a bold flair, Costales says to layer a small amount of any bright eye shadow above your eyeliner for a pop of color. And there you have it — a connect-the-dots eyeliner trick to use for any eye shape!
