There are ample pretty looks you can create with your eyeliner apart from your good old cat eye style. All of us know how your basic eyeliner can transform your eyes and your entire look in general. But if you are bored with your usual cat eye flicks and want to try something new and classy, here are some chic and new eyeliner styles that every girl can try!
1. Dark and dramatic

Then draw a dramatic flick that extends across the crease, intensify your look by filling your eyelids with black eye shadow. This smokey liner style gives you a break from your usual cat-eye flick and is perfect for the nights you want to go super bold and dramatic!
2. Smudged waterline

For someone who’s looking for a different and subtle look, go for this smudged waterline style. It’s super easy to do as all you have to do is apply a thick kohl line on your waterline and smudge it with the help of a smudger. Even if you mess it up a little, always remember that messy always looks sexy!
3. Arabic eyeliner style

Make a thick line on your waterline and merge it with the flick. See, it’s super duper easy to do, isn’t it?
4. Smudged cat eye

5. Jewel-toned eyeliner

The best part is that jewel colours look amazing on our Indian skin. Don’t limit yourself to blues, try other jewel toned shades such as bronze, pink and burgundy!
6. All that gold

The best part is, you don’t even have to spend a lot of time achieving this style. Just make a normal black line on your eyelids and use a golden eye pencil/ liner on top of that. We are in love with this gold eyeliner that will help you achieve this oh-so-gorgeous look. Isn’t it so perfect for when you’re decking up in Indian wear?
7. Barely there look

You can use a nude eyeliner on your lower waterline to give it a ‘barely there’ finish. This style is so on point and you will love this fresh and subtle look, for sure.
8. Dash of blue

9. Puppy eyeliner style
If you have small eyes and want to make them look bigger, try this Korean eye makeup trick. The trick here is to extend your flicks downwards (instead of upwards) so that it gives an illusion of wider ‘puppy’ eyes. Go ahead and try this chic style today!Watch the tutorial here.
10. Three shades flick

You can use a white eye pencil on your waterline to accentuate the other shades and finish the look by applying the third shade below the white eyeliner. This might not be your everyday look but definitely try this at the next party you attend.
11. Smudged eyeshadow look

Apply black eyeshadow on your eyelids to give it a smokey look and then blend on a brighter shadow along the outer corners . Also, apply some of the eyeshadow under your eyes and smudge it out a bit. This look is so sexy and will give you a dreamy eye look. We absolutely love this style!
12. Crease your eyelids
Go bold with this graphic eye look! This might even be your new everyday go-to as it looks so chic and gorgeous. Make your usual cat eye and extend the flicks to the center of your crease. If you want to go bolder and more dramatic, you can even outline your entire crease.
