When it comes to eye liner, there really isn't a shape that will make you look bad, but instead there are certain tips and tricks that will accentuate your eyes, to make them look their best. 

Rita Ora's make-up artist, Kathy Jeung, created six looks for Cosmopolitan which shows all the hacks you need to know! 

Asymmetrical Eyes

If one is slightly larger than the other, you will need to use a liner technique that will help you correct and equal out both of your eyes.

Kathy suggests using a black kohl liner along the last line, from the inner corner to the outer corner, increasing the width at the outer corner on the slightly uneven eye only to make it appear wider and even. 


Close-Set Eyes

The key to this eye shape is creating the illusion that your eyes are wider apart than they are. 

First use concealer on the inner corners to lighten and open up the eye area. Then, on the outer third part of your eye, create a V shape using a black liner, and then trace the shape with a jumbo liquid liner to make a thick wing. 



Extend the product up the upper lid so the fold on the lower lid doesn't hide your liner. 

Kathy recommends using a waterproof black pencil along the lashline from the inner to outer corner and stopping where the eye ends. You can also smudge it out at the outer corners, using a small smudger brush. 


Wide Eyes

Wide eyes can handle a lot of different looks, so go for a bold cat eye if you want to make the biggest impact. 

Using a waterproof black liner pencil, create a tiny V in the inner corner of your eye. Then, go over the line with a liquid liner, and wing it out at the corner for a patent-leather look. 


Small Eyes

To widen small eyes, apply a taupe shadow over the eyelid all the way up to the crease. Next, along the lash line, use a black kohl pencil.

Smudge it with your fingertip and top with a dark brown eye shadow, increasing the amount of shadow at the outer corners. Along the lower lash line, repeat the black liner/brown shadow combo. 


Almond Eyes

To accentuate almond eyes, line the inner and lower lashes with a waterproof kohl pencil the entire way around your eyes, then trace the outer corners of the upper and lower lashlines, smudging it with a brush. 

Then, top it with a grey shadow to soften it and use bronzer to accentuate the crease for a natural effect.
