Brightening Your Look with White Eyeliner

When most people think of dramatic makeup, they think dark colors: big, bold smoky eyes, black winged liner, and stunningly thick eyelashes. But as many celebrities and designers are discovering, you can use white eyeliner to achieve all kinds of different looks. Whether you’re going for innocent and sweet or chic and edgy, using white eyeliner can help you look effortlessly fashionable. Here are a few uses for white eyeliner you might not have known:

As an Eye Shadow or Base

NYX makes some spectacular jumbo eye pencils, the most famous of which is the white Milk. This eyeliner is remarkable because of its size and texture, allowing it to double as both eyeliner and eye shadow. This works great as a base and can be used in place of primer to make sure your colorful eye shadows stay on. Just take the eyeliner pencil and color over your lids, and then use your fingers or a brush to blend it out.

A Dab in the Corner

A great way to make eyes look brighter and larger is to take a sharpened white eyeliner pencil and outline the very inner corners of the eyes. Unlike black eyeliner, which often swallow up the eyes and can make them seem smaller, white eyeliner acts as a highlighter to brighten your look and make your eyes larger. This look is great for when you want to downplay your eyes and show off a statement red lipstick, like the model on the left without having any sort of conflict from the rest of your makeup.

In Place of Regular Eyeliner

Instead of limiting the white liner to just the corners of your eyes, you can also sweet them across your eyelids in place of regular dark eyeliner for a modern, chic look. This is a fashionable look that immediately draws attention to your eyes, and can work with all different kinds of makeup styles. The model on the left wears it with a subtle, nude palette while the model in the center uses her white eyeliner to do a simple wing, accented by beautiful contouring and long eyelashes. No matter what you choose to wear on the rest of your face, white eyeliner immediately grabs and commands attention.

To Emphasize Bright Colors

While black eyeliner can often make even the brightest of neon colors seem dark and a bit overwhelming, white eyeliner has the opposite effect. When you pair crisp white liner with bright pinks, purples, and blues, it creates a beautiful contrast that really brings out the colors instead of overpowering them. Since most people use black or dark brown mascara, having the splash of white can be a greatly needed balance to the darker colors. This is a great way to really emphasize the eyes in any look, so pair it with a quieter, softer nude lip as not to overwhelm this effect.
