Before you draw your usual cat eye on your eye again, hold up. There are lots of different eyeliner shapes you could be trying and the one that everyone has currently fallen for is dot eyeliner.
As you can probably guess from the name, dot eyeliner doesn’t involve your usual flick. Instead, it involves creating dots with your eyeliner. The most common place we’re seeing the dot is right in the center of your lower lash line, but celebrities, beauty bloggers and the runways show that you can put the dots almost anywhere.
You can try a dot on the outer corner of your eye, in the inner corner or even above your brows. You can also add multiple dots to create a freckle-like effect. The real beauty of the look is that you can totally customize it and make it your own.
If you’re the type of person who loves color, you can try mixed colored eyeliner dots in place of your usual bold eyeshadows. And if you cannot give up your tried-and-true black cat eye, you can keep it and try adding a dot to another part of your eye.
If you’re wondering how to get your dots perfect, using a fine-tipped liquid liner is key. Alternatively, you can use a slightly dull eyeliner pencil or the back of a thin makeup brush to create a perfectly round finish. No matter what method you choose, don’t be afraid to experiment with different shapes and sizes. This is one time that it’s good if you start seeing spots.
