The Raddest Liner Look For Your Eye Shape

Photographed By Ben Ritter.
Eyeliner is one of the great makeup-bag equalisers: We'd venture to guess that just about everyone has one type or another in their arsenal. But, how do you figure out which look works for your eye shape? After all, it's not at all the same thing that works for your friend, or sister, or coworker, get the idea.

We're not ones to say you can't wear something based on any physical characteristic. You do whatever the hell makes you feel beautiful, eye shape be damned. However, for those who crave a little guidance, here it is. We tapped makeup artist Maki H. to concoct liner styles that complement all the different eye shapes, from monolids to downturned eyes. "These makeup looks are more about enhancing the shape," she says. "I'm not a big fan of 'corrective' makeup." Amen, sister.

Click through to find your liner Shangri-la. And, hey, if you happen to see something you like that doesn't correspond with your eye shape, go ahead and try it anyway. Wear what you love. Happy drawing, ladies.
