Inner Eye Highlighter

Postby emjd » Wed Nov 14, 2007 4:48 am

I hace been hearing a lot of talk lately about highlightening your inner eye and certain areas of your face like they do on What Not to Wear. I have search and searched, but still can't figure it out. I guess I need pictures to understand. Can anyone give me direction as to where to look or how todo it exactly. I already bought a white eyeliner I say in Lucky Magazine I hear it makes you look younger and I am all for that. Thank you for any advice you have.

Hard to explain, but use the pencil (or white eye shadow applied with a very small brush) near where your upper lid meets your lower lid, but slightly closer to nose, in a crescent shape. It takes away that little hollow that tends to have a dark shadow. Good luck!

Hello Emjd,

I have started using white eyeliners during my college years in Israel. Now I prefer to wear black on top and dark green at bottom for a sexier look. I feel that wearing black on top and bottom makes my eyes look sleepy.

As for the white color, I would suggest you apply the white eyeliner in a thin line outside your regular eyeliner, for a dramatic look or you can also use it inside your regular liner to brighten your eyes.

I love the Shiseido The Makeup Eyeliner Pencil Duo as it has both the white and black colors to highlight and enhance your eyes at the same time - It also stays for the whole day and doesn't smear. I bought it for $22:


Using a white eyeliner on the inside of your eyes not only enhances the outer color of liner but also makes the whites of your eyes more predominate and enhances your color.

Another trick I've learned to make the liner stay in place longer, after applying, is to trace the line with a fine brush dipped in a translucent face powder as the powder will set the eyeliner.

Here are the most detailed instructions I was able to find trough the internet on how to apply it:

After your base make-up is applied, dab a bit of concealer under both eyes and on both lids. This evens the skin tone and provides a base on which to apply your shadow.

Using the color of eyeliner you wear daily, line the outside corners of both upper and lower lids. Lining the inside of the lower lid with dark liner will make your eyes appear smaller. So, don't.

Apply eye shadow. Darker colors toward the outside of the eye and lighter colors toward the middle, makes eyes look larger.

At this point curl lashes and apply lash builder if you choose. Do not apply mascara.

Carefully apply a very thin line of liquid eyeliner at the base of the lashes on the outside corner of both upper lids. This step is optional. I have very small, close set eyes. If your eyes are already large and well spaced apart, you may want to skip this step. Use sparingly, you don't want to end up looking like Cleopatra.

Using an off white (not stark white), cream, or light pink frosted (reflects light) eyeliner, dab pencil where upper and lower lids meet on the insider corner of both eyes. Step away from the mirror and examine the effect. Add more or less. You want your eyes too look brighter but natural and not theatrical. Smudge the liner if necessary.

Line the inside, outer corner (not whole lid) of both lower lids. Again stand back from the mirror and examine the effect. In this case, less is best. It only takes a small amount to creat the illusion of brighter, wider eyes.

do not use white to line your inner eye. it looks like you put white liner there. use more of a flesh/skin color in the inner lid..not just near the inner corner..she is referring to something else. for that you use a light shadow or slight frosty thinker pencil
