What are upturned eyes?

Before jumping into a makeup tutorial it's important to first understand what are upturned eyes — it has a natural upward lift at the outer corner of the eyes. Due to this, the lower eyelid appears a little longer than the upper eyelid.

Steps to apply eyeliner to upturned eyes

Step 01: It is important to first create an even base — even if you’re simply applying an eyeliner. Either apply a little bit of primer or concealer to your eyelids to create an even base.

Step 02: Use a felt tip eyeliner to line your upper and lower lash line. Using a felt tip liner like the Lakme Eyeconic Liner Pen Fine Tip - Deep Black draw a thick line at the outer corner of your eyes.

Step 03: Elevate the look by extending your eyeliner on the upper lash line — this creates a soft winged eyeliner look.

Step 04: Apply 2-3 layers of mascara to accentuate your eyes and open up your peepers.
