White eyeliner is making a serious comeback - and it doesn’t seem to want to go away. Whether it’s peeking from the inner corners of your eyes, making a statement cat eye, or sitting pretty along your entire upper lid white eyeliner can do it all.

This versatile little eyeliner could be a serious game changer for anyone’s makeup routine. White eyeliner is your one way to ticket to brighter eyes and an edgier look - what’s not to love?


1. Create a crazy good cat eye.

Don’t be afraid to rock white eyeliner all by itself. Creating a cat eye with white eyeliner can be just as bold and beautiful as a cat eye created with it’s black counterpart.

2. Layer your liners.

Try creating a line of white eyeliner on your upper lid twice as thick as you normally would with black liner. Then layer your black liner thinly on top. This will create an epically dramatic look.

3. Brighten the inner corners of your eyes only.

This is the easiest way to get a fresh, wide-awake look. All you have to do is sprinkle some white eyeliner on the inner corners of your eye and let that creep up onto your top lid.

4. Use it as a base for your eyeshadow

White eyeliner can be a great mixer or blender for brighter colors. It’s an easy mix in to bring those almost-too-bright tones back down to reality. No other eyeliner color can tint or soak eyeshadow colors better than white eyeliner.

5. Brighten your brow line

White eyeliner is also an amazing brow shaping tool. You can easily use it to highlight your brow bones. Apply a little bit of white liner below your brow and just give it a good smudge - you’ll see results instantly.
