If you love one stroke of eyeliner, why stop there? That’s the whole philosophy behind the layered eyeliner trend. Needless to say, it has recently blown up on social media thanks to eyeliner fans who wholeheartedly agree with the sentiment.
Layered liner (or stacked liner as it’s sometimes called) involves using multiple eyeliner colors to create a layered look, hence the name.
Throwback to when I did a layered winged eyeliner in pink and black for a shoot😍 💁@klaudikovac #mua #makeupartistindia #sakshimalikhairandmakeup #sakshimalikstudio #layeredeyeliner #pinkeyeliner #blackeyeliner #nudelips #glossylips #browsonfleek #contour #fashion #lovemyjob #lifeofamua #loveexperimenting #delhimakeupartist #gurgaonmakeupartist #imbbmakeupgurus #instamakeup #follow4follow #tagsforlikes #lashes #lovewhatido
If you’re someone who struggles to get a straight, crisp finish when you apply one flick of eyeliner to each eye, you’re probably groaning at the thought of what it would be like to make countless lines look perfect. However, the beauty of the trend is that you really only need to make your top or outermost layer crisp. You can camouflage other not-so-straight lines when you’re creating the look by slightly overlapping the colors.
Another brilliant thing about the trend is that it is versatile. You can choose as many different eyeliners as you want to complete the look. You can draw the entire rainbow of your eyes if you feel so included. What’s more, you can get creative and experiment with countless different eyeliner shapes.
Outlining a classic black cat eye with a bold contrasting color is one of the most popular options, but don’t let that restrict you. The only thing you’re limited by is the amount of space you have on your eye area and the time you have to create the look. So, what are you waiting for? Get layering.
