Technique 1: Brighter eyes
Many people feel that wearing white eyeliner makes them look heavily made up. A great way to combat this and still achieve a fresh faced natural look while wearing white eyeliner is to line your upper lash line with a regular eyeliner, and line the lower lash line in white. Alternatively, after applying any eye shadow of your choice, apply some white eye pencil to the inner corners of your eye (nearest to your nose) along the top and bottom lids to make you look more awake. Be sure to blend out any harsh lines with your finger tips. Remember to use very thin lines.
Technique 2: Substitute for eye shadow
Another eyeliner tip involves substituting white eyeliner for eye shadow. This is very easy and fast to do. Smudge some white eye liner on your upper lash line, and run it up on your brow bone with a brush. This can also be paired on with a light eye shadow to create a perfect daytime look, perfect for work.
Technique 3: Makeup base
A make-up base, worn under make-up extends the staying power of your make-up and can also be used to cover blemishes, spots and dark circles. White eyeliner can be used as an eye shadow base to make your eye shadow colors (especially brighter colors) pop and stay put. However if you already have large eyes, unfortunately the white eyeliner trend probably won't do you well as your eyes will come off looking absurdly big.
