Are you bound to your black eyeliner? Well, we have news for you: white eye makeup is the new black. We still love classic black cat eyes and dark, smudged out eyeliner—but we’re proposing you branch out with your makeup look this season. It isn’t anything too crazy. We aren’t even suggesting you rock a bright color—not to say that isn’t a good idea too. Like black, white is a neutral, but rather than making your eyes look smaller—which darker shades can do—it can help you achieve a brighter, wide-eyed look. We wish we had gotten in on this gorgeous makeup trend a lot sooner, and we have a feeling—after reading on—you will too! Below, find out 6 different ways you can use a white eyeliner pencil to amp up your eye makeup.


So, you’re totally on board with this white eyeliner trend, but what product should you reach for? The L’Oréal Paris Infallible Never Fail™ Eyeliner in White is our best white pencil eyeliner for switching up your makeup look. This eyeliner has a creamy formula that glides on easily and is long-lasting. Its built-in sharpener and smudger will make creating different eye makeup looks a breeze.


As much as the color black is a crucial element in everything from your wardrobe to your makeup routines, it’s fun to mix things up from time to time. The white eyeliner trend provides the perfect opportunity to brighten up your look with a pop of white around your eyes. Learn how to rock this light look—6 ways—below:


There’s no need to set your favorite style aside when trying out this trend. A traditional cat eye looks especially eye-opening when created with a white eyeliner pencil, as it can help brighten the look of your eyes. To create a white version of this eye makeup staple, line your upper lid with your white eyeliner pencil and flick the liner outward at the corner of your eye. If you have hooded eyes, be sure to draw your cat eye while your eyes are open. This can help ensure it doesn’t disappear in the hidden crease of your eye.

Editor’s tip: If you’re a winged eyeliner newbie, no worries—you can still rock this all. All you have to do is grab a piece of tape and angle it up at the outer corner of your eye to trace along. Easy, peasy!


If you’re not quite ready to say goodbye to your trusty black eyeliner, don’t! Instead, draw your eyeliner on as per usual, using the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro-Last Waterproof Pencil Eyeliner in Black. Then, top it off with a line of white eyeliner overtop. It’s the best of both worlds!


Embrace ‘60s vibes with a little black and white action. To get the look, create a black wing on your top lid before lining your lower lash line with white. Don’t put your white eyeliner pencil down just yet, add a white flick at the inner corner of your eye. It’s basically the makeup equivalent of the yin-yang symbol—pretty neat, right?


For a little highlighting action, trace the inner corner of your eye with a thin line of white eyeliner pencil. It’s a super-understated look that’s perfect for every day. Oh, and did we mention that it looks gorgeous when paired with another bright color? Try it with the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro-Last Waterproof Pencil Eyeliner in Cobalt Blue, placing a thin line along your upper lash line, then top things off with a coat of the L’Oréal Paris Voluminous Original Mascara in Cobalt Blue. Talk about a pop of color!


One of the easiest ways to help make your eyes look more awake is to line your waterline with your white eyeliner pencil. This is also the perfect trick to try if you want your eyes to look bigger.


While you still have your white eyeliner pencil handy, draw a slightly thicker line under your eye. Then, use a blending brush to blend the liner out for a super soft, brightening effect.
