The graphic arrow eyeliner can be tricky for beginners, but it's not difficult to achieve. Create a classic cat-eye first and extend its tip slightly outwards. Then create another line starting just below mid-brow and join its tip with the first one to get this look.
02. Floating eyeliner

Floating eyeliners are all the rage right now, and you can create it using a good old black eyeliner, but to take things a notch higher, we recommend using a coloured eyeliner. Outline your crease using a poppy colour and wing it out to recreate this fierce look.
03. Double winged liner

What’s better than one winged eyeliner? Two winged liners, of course! There are so many different versions of creating the double-winged liner looks, but here’s an easy and trendy one. Simply take two coloured eyeliners, black and white in this case, and use them to create a stacked double winged eyeliner look.
04. Smudged eyeliner look

The smudged eyeliner look is probably the easiest to create. If you can’t create perfect-looking precise lines, this look is for you. Use a pencil or gel eyeliner for this one. Draw a line close to your lash line, then using a brush or smudger, simply smudge it out to soften the look.
05. Thick winged eyeliner look

If you want to give your regular cat eyeliner an edgier look, the thick winged eyeliner look is apt for you. It's glamorous and perfect for any occasion. If you want to skip using eyeshadow, this is the look you should go for!
