Eye Makeup Using Only Eyeliners: Tutorial

Hello Beauties,

I am sure every girl owns at least one coloured eyeliner, and using eyeliner (liquid or pencil) is easy than using many shades of eye shadow like a pro. So today, I am going to share with you all an eye makeup look using only eyeliners. So, if you are a beginner in using eye shadow but want to wear all the colours of your dress on your eye, you can try this look.  Here I am using two coloured eyeliners and then the basic black eyeliner. So, let’s get started:


Step 1:

Use concealer around your eye to even out the skin around eyes.

Step 2:

Prime your eyes, to make eyeliner stay longer and to make the colours appear more vivid.

Step 3:

Apply the lighter coloured eyeliner (I am using green eyeliner), but line your eyes thicker than when you do always and don’t go very close to the lash line, leave the skin empty there to use the next liner.

Step 4:

The end result of step 3 should look like this.

step 1-9

Step 5:

Now, take the other colored eyeliner and line it close to your lash lines. This line should be thicker but thinner than first liner. Line ¾ of your lower lash line also with the same colour.

Step 6:

End result of Step 5 should look as shown in the picture.

Step 7:

Now, use black eyeliner (liquid or gel) and line your eyes as you always do.

Step 8:

Apply kohl on your water line and tight line your eyes.

Step 9:

Curl your lashes and apply your favourite mascara, and this will be the final look.


That’s all; your multicoloured eye makeup with use of only eyeliner is done. This makeup gives you the needed pop of colours on your eye and give the basic black rim around the eye too. This is very useful for beginners who are a novice at applying eye shadow and blending.  Also, this will be useful when you are in a hurry as it takes very less time.

You can create the same look with different colours of your choice. I hope you all liked this tutorial and will try it too.
