Do you want to change up your makeup routine? You can easily change up your look by experimenting with eyeliner.

Discover our tips and tricks for three traditional eyeliner styles.
Nothing evokes old Hollywood like a retro-glam cat-eye. Although mastering winged liners takes some practice, the result is a feminine look worth the effort.
TIPS: Use the darkest liquid eyeliner you can find! Apply Dermablend Fast-Fix Concealer on your upper eyelid. Set with powder. Close one eye, and apply the liner as close as you can to the lashline from inner to outer corners. If you aren’t quite confident enough, use the tip to make tiny dots on your lash line. Connect the dots with a second stroke. After you have connected the dots, draw the wing. It should be angled upwards in a straight line starting at your bottom lashline. Draw outwards from your outer corner with a flicking movement. Apply a little pressure first, then ease up. To erase mistakes, keep a cotton swab soaked in eye makeup remover on hand.

TIPS: Choose your favorite jewel-toned liner and sweep it along the lower lashline from the inner corner to the outer corner. You can smudge your makeup with a fingertip or a makeup sponge. Keep the top lid neutral and simple with just a coat of mascara and nude eyeshadow.

Sparkly eyes don’t have to be reserved for special occasions. You can wear a metallic look at any time, whether it’s during the day or on a date.
TIPS Select your metallic medium – loose or pressed eyeshadows, liquid or solid liner – and line the top and bottom lashlines from the inner corner to the outer edge. Choose warm metallics, like gold or copper, for a subtler shine. Silver, pewter, and metallic shades of blue and purple are cool metallics that create a standout look.
