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

As much as you love 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: color-blocked eyeliner. Well, guess what? Color blocking 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 that may occur along the way. Ready to rock a runway-ready statement eye? We have three color block eyeliner ideas for you below.

COLOR BLOCK 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, Up to 24HR Pencil Eyeliner in Purple

L’Oréal Paris Unlimited Lash Lifting and Lengthening Washable 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 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 lifting mascara.

COLOR BLOCK 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 eyeliner 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

Take your cobalt build eyeliner and line your upper lash line, then wing it out.  

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 wing all the way 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

Make the most of your bright blue negative space look by coating your lashes with an equally bold, blue mascara.

COLOR BLOCK 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 on white winged eyeliner

With a white liquid eyeliner, create a small flick at your outer corner. Then, line along your upper lash line, connecting it to the wing, and voila—you have perfect winged eyeliner.  

Step 2: Apply aqua underliner

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 with anything—it’s only right for your eyes to be the star of your makeup look. To keep the rest of your makeup from taking away from your eyeliner masterpiece, steer clear of bright face makeup colors and dramatic makeup. Keep it lightweight, dewy, and natural-looking so your complexion can 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 it onto your cheekbones, the tip of your nose, and your cupid’s bow.

Step 5: Coat your lids in a 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 Colour Riche Monos Eye Shadow in Little Beige Dress.

Step 6: Apply your color-blocked eyeliner

Which colorful eyeliner look will you test out? Whichever it is, this is when you should apply it!

Step 7: Reach for mascara

Swipe on a coat of mascara to draw even more attention to your eyes.

Step 8: Prime your lips

Now it’s onto your 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 Rouge Signature, Lasting Matte Liquid 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.
