Graphic Eyeliner Shapes

If you’ve mastered classic winged eyeliner and you’re ready to take your eye makeup to the next level, let cool graphic eyeliner designs be your next makeup challenge to conquer. From geometric shapes to more intricate designs, the possibilities are endless. 


Not sure where to start? Below, we’re sharing five of our favorite graphic eyeliner shapes to try this summer for the ultimate head-turning makeup look

1. Open Wing

You can create an eye-catching look using just your typical black liquid eyeliner. This thick winged design curves around the upper eyelids and comes to a point at the outer corners making the eyes appear bigger and more lifted — and the space left blank creates the illusion of more wide-awake eyes. The design itself isn’t complicated to create, but it makes for a statement look. Just be sure you have a jet black liquid liner, like the L’Oréal Paris Infallible The Super Slim Liquid Eyeliner, on hand if you’re going to attempt the look. 


2. Double Winged Eyeliner 

A great way to elevate a classic winged eyeliner look is to add a double wing and some cute shapes to it. This look boasts elongated double winged eyeliner that makes the eyes appear lifted, in combination with little stars that give it a cutesy twist.


3. Heart Tips 

Another classic shape to play with is hearts — they’re easy to create and they’ll always be a fan favorite. Simply attach colorful hearts to the tips of your winged liner using a creamy eyeliner pencil, like the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro-Last Waterproof, Up to 24HR Pencil Eyeliner in Burgundy


Pro tip: leave the inner edge of the hearts open to create the illusion of bigger eyes. If you close the inner edge, you’ll close off your eyes a bit. 


4. Butterfly Wings

Butterfly makeup looks are perfect for festival season — and they’re a surefire way to take your eyeliner to the next level. It’s a bold look, so make sure your lashes don’t get lost by applying an extra-volumizing mascara, like the L’Oréal Paris Voluminous Lash Paradise Washable Mascara, or by adding wispies to the corners of your natural lashes. 


5. Flames

There’s no better way to draw attention to your eyes than by completely surrounding them with jaw-dropping eyeliner. This look features ombré neon flames that decorate the upper eyelid as well as under the lower lash line. To give the eyes even more definition and a smoldering effect, pair the colorful design with classic black winged eyeliner.
