Dramatic eyeliner is a key weapon in any make-up lover’s repertoire. While you might not associate summer with liner, it really can transform your look.
If you get it right, it works just as well around the pool as in the nightclub.
From flicks and swooshes to wings, it’s likely you’ve got your go-to look nailed.
Not sure what to try next?
Whether you’re a kohl convert or liquid lover, there are lots of fun eyeliner trends to give a go this season.
Add some edge to pretty dresses or spice up your beachwear with these top trends.
Negative space eyeliner is definitely our Number 1 liner look right now, and the beauty of it is that you probably already have the skills you need to get it just right.
The whole idea is that, where you might normally fill in the gap from the outline you’ve made, instead you let the space in between do the talking.
This gives a lot of room to experiment and results can look anything from space-age to vintage depending on your technique.
Below is a simple yet effective example, which gives a futuristic edge with minimal effort.
We love how is looks more like wings than traditional winged liner (we reckon it takes some inspo from Hermes), while at the same time super cutting edge.
To recreate, simply draw a line from the outer corner of your eye, as you would if you were doing a classic winged effect.
Then bring a second line down from it, as if coming to meet your lower lash line. Draw slightly inwards if you want, or play around with the different effects.
Emma Watson’s eyeliner inverses the style above, with the space moving toward the upper eyelid rather than downwards.
You can accentuate this style by adding eyeshadow in the crease of your lid and working down in a gradient.
Or go for a smokier look like Gigi by smudging your lines, or going over them with kohl.
She also keeps the line going through crease of her eye and lines the entire length of her upper eyelid, for a more dramatic look.

If that whets your appetite, then this next trend will see you go dotty.
This look is very much about playing around with eyeliner as a tool, a brush or pen, rather than as a liner per say.
Again, it manages to balance a retro (think Twiggy and Bardot vibes) and modern feel.
Try it yourself by dotting your liner in the middle of your lash line, like Emma Roberts below.
Play around with lining up to the dot and smudging to find your statement style.
Or lower the dots like Zoë Kravitz so they are further away from your eye.
Play around, experiment, and see what else you can come up with.
Wear with some semi-rimless frames to make sure those dots are showing:
