How to Do Color-Blocked Eyeliner How to Do Color-Blocked Eyeliner How to Do Color-Blocked Eyeliner

As much as you may love your black eyeliner, take one scroll through your social feeds these days and you’ll be wishing you could pull off the latest and greatest eye makeup trend—we’re talking about color-blocked eyeliner. Well, guess what? This is one makeup trend that is actually a lot easier than it looks! All you need is a handful of colorful eyeliners, mascara to top off your look, and micellar water to fix any mistakes so that you don’t have to start all over again. Ready to rock a runway-ready statement eye? We have three color-blocked eyeliner ideas for you below.  

Color-Blocked Eyeliner Look #1: Mismatched Eyeliner

Mismatched colors and patterns are totally in right now. While they may not seem like they go well together, it turns out that in the modern-day fashion scene this is actually super-trendy.

What you’ll need:

L’Oréal Paris Infallible Paints Eyeliner in Wild Green

L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro-Last Waterproof Pencil Eyeliner in Purple

L’Oréal Paris Voluminous X Fiber Mascara

L’Oréal Paris Micellar Cleansing Water Complete Cleanser Waterproof - All Skin Types

Get the look by following these simple steps:

Step 1: Apply green eyeliner. Using green eyeliner, draw a diagonal line a centimeter or two up from the outer corner of your eye to create the tip of your wing. From there, connect the tip to the center of your upper lash line in one fell swoop. Don’t go past the center because that’s where your next color comes in.

Step 2: Apply purple eyeliner. Trace the rest of your lash line with purple eyeliner. From there, you can move straight on to mascara or coat your waterline with purple as well.

Step 3: Finish with mascara. To really play up your colorful lash line look, coat your lashes with a fiber mascara.

Color-Blocked Eyeliner Look #2: Negative Space Eyeliner

Want to achieve a modern look with your makeup? Instead of a thick line of eyeliner along your lash line, why not create a shape on your lid? With this negative space tutorial, you’ll be able to accentuate your eyes while putting forth a truly artistic statement.

What you’ll need:

L’Oréal Paris Infallible Paints Eyeliner in Electric Blue

L’Oréal Paris Voluminous Original Mascara in Cobalt

Get the look by following these simple steps:

Step 1: Start with a cat eye. Draw a diagonal line up from the outer corners of your eyes using a cobalt blue eyeliner before connecting it to your lash line to create a precision tip for your wing.

Step 2: Extend from your tip through your crease. To bring your negative space statement eye to life, trace your blue liquid eyeliner from the tip of your wings across your crease, curving down once you reach the inner corner of your eye. Leave the space between your two lines blank.

Step 3: Finish with mascara. To make the most of your bright blue negative space color-blocked eyeliner, coat your lashes with an equally as blue mascara.

Color-Blocked Eyeliner Look #3: Graphic Aqua and White Lash Lines

Make your eyes pop with two seriously bright liquid eyeliners. As soon as you complete this statement eye you’ll be wondering why you hadn’t tried it sooner.

What you’ll need:

L’Oréal Paris Infallible Paints Eyeliner in White Party

L’Oréal Paris Infallible Paints Eyeliner in Vivid Aqua

L’Oréal Paris Voluminous Lash Paradise Mascara

Get the look by following these simple steps:

Step 1: Draw white wing tips. Draw a diagonal line up from the outer corners of your eyes using a white liquid eyeliner, connecting from the tips down along your upper lash lines towards the inner corners of your eyes. Voila, a perfect wing tip application.

Step 2: Draw aqua under-eyes. Use an aqua liquid eyeliner to trace color along your lower lash line.

Step 3: Finish with mascara. One coat of mascara should do the trick!  

The Best Face Makeup Pairings for Color-Blocked Eyeliner

Don’t make your color-blocked eyeliner compete. To keep the rest of your makeup from taking away from your eyeliner masterpiece, steer clear of bright face makeup colors and thick makeup overall. Keep it lightweight, dewy, and natural-looking to serve as the perfect complement to the centerpiece of your look. Don’t be afraid to pair your statement eyeliner with a bold lip, though, as this can really tie your overall look together. Complete your makeup look by following our tutorial below.

Step 1: Perfect your base. Before applying any makeup, use the L’Oréal Paris Pro Glow Lock Makeup Primer or L’Oréal Paris Pro Matte Lock Makeup Primer to create a smooth canvas for the rest of your makeup application. 

Step 2: Color-correct. Next, use the L’Oréal Paris True Match™ Color Correcting Crayons to neutralize the appearance of redness, dullness, or sallowness. After all, you don’t want any other colors competing with your color-blocked eyeliner.

Step 3: Apply foundation. Once everything looks a bit more evenly toned, decide whether you want dewy-looking skin or a matte finish from your foundation. After you choose, squeeze some of the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro Glow Foundation or L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro-Matte Foundation onto a makeup blender, like the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Blend Artist Foundation Blender, and stipple it on until you achieve your ideal coverage—just remember that you should avoid a heavy-handed approach since you’re aiming for a natural-looking finish.  

Step 4: Accent your high points. Squeeze a few drops of liquid highlighter, like the L’Oréal Paris True Match Lumi Glow Amour Glow Boosting Drops, onto a makeup blender and dab the into your cheekbones, the tip of your nose and the top of your cupid’s bow.

Step 5: Coat your lids in a creamy neutral base. Graphic eyeliner should never have to compete with the rest of your eye makeup. Keep your lids classic and clean-looking with a quick swipe of the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Paints Eye Shadow in Cool Ivory.

Step 6: Apply your color-blocked eyeliner. Which of the above looks will you test out?

Step 7: Apply mascara. Swipe on a coat to draw more attention to your eyes.

Step 8: Prime your lips. Now it’s onto lips! Use a primer to create an even base for lipstick application.

Step 9: Apply lipstick. Shiny or matte? That’s the ultimate question! Whichever you choose, the L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Shine Lipstick and L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Matte Lipstick are available for all your pout needs.

Step 10: Set your makeup. Now that you’ve perfected your makeup look, you’d hate to see it fade away throughout the day, right? To help prevent that, dust a face powder, like the L’oréal Paris Infallible Pro Sweep & Lock Loose Setting Face Powder, across your face and you’ll be ready to slay all day.

Now that you know how to nail the color-blocked eyeliner trend, why not master another while you’re at it? That’s exactly what you’ll be able to do with our article, How to Wear Smudged Black Eyeliner.
