Eyeliner Tips

Black or White Eyeliner? What’s the difference?

 So my favourite item of makeup is eyeliner as it always adds that pop to any look. However, should you ditch your black liner? Today I am going to show the difference white and black liner can make to your whole look.

Black or White Eyeliner?

Black eyeliner has been in fashion since ancient times, just look at the Egyptians for example. I’d be tempted to say it’s one of the oldest trends alive! However for some black liner isn’t always the best choice. Did you know it can actually make your eye bags more prominent?

Black eyeliner does help define your eye area but going for a white will open up your eye. Making them appear larger and brighter.

So I tried the same look (changing my lipstick don’t judge a girl) with both black and white liner so we can visibly see the difference. Starting with the black liner.

Now I love this look with the nude and brown eyeshadow. The winged eyeliner and the smudged black look underneath is my go to smokey look. However if we have a look at this with the white eyeliner.

You can see that my eye look immediately brighter. The black also highlights the black bags under my eyes more than the white. It’s actually hard to believe it can make such a difference but it can. This is also the best choice for photography makeup. For the exact reason that it helps with brightening the eye area which can become darker in photos.

What’s your go-to eyeliner? I am known to wear coloured liner as well so maybe one of those looks next. They’ll be great for summer and festival season that will be upon very soon. Let me know in the comments below or over on my social media pages. If you’re looking for more makeup inspiration why not check out this cute makeup look from another post.
