You want to open your eyes and make them seem bigger and more awake. A white eyeliner is definitely known as one of the oldest makeup tricks around.

Makeup tricks using nude eyeliner

These next eyeliner makeup tricks are focused on using a nude eyeliner on the waterliner to change the appearance of the eyes. First of all it’s hard to a true nude eyeliner, trust me I am still on the look out for it. I once managed to find a nude eyeliner from the makeup brand Manhattan and after that I haven’t been able to find one at all. Now back to the nude eyeliner. The nude eyeliner is the perfect trick for tired eyes. This is usually one of the eyeliner makeup tricks that I use when I haven’t slept enough or when I have puffy eyes. The difference between a white and nude eyeliner is that a white eyeliner is a more aggressive way to get noticeable bigger eyes. A nude eyeliner has the same effect but is more subtle and undetectable. You can see the differences between the eyeliners, nude in picture 3. This is one of the perfect eyeliner makeup tricks for woman at work or at school.

Makeup tricks using black eyeliner

One of the last eyeliner makeup tricks is using a black eyeliner.  As mentioned above, some colors make the eyes seem bigger while other colors make the eyes seems smaller. Black eyeliners are commonly used when we do dark and Smokey eye makeup. The reason we use a black eyeliner is to give a more piercing look or better said sexier more seductive look. If you want to make your eyes stand out make sure to use these makeup tricks. If you have big eyes like I do, use a black eyeliner on my waterline to make my eyes seem smaller and not only for smokey eyes or for a sexier sultry look. If you have small eyes only use a black eyeliner when you are doing darker looks but if you have small eyes and are doing a more natural look then skip the black eyeliner and use a white or nude one. These are the makeup tricks use them well.
