Floating Eyeliner Is the Perfect Hack for Hooded Eyes

·1 min read

As a beauty enthusiast, I've never been able to wear a classic winged eyeliner look due to having hooded eyes. However, makeup pioneers have proved that unconventional eye art application is a must in 2022. With that being said, the initiative here is to hone in on the floating liner look.

Floating liner utilizes negative space to exaggerate the overall eye makeup look. The trend, inclusive of all eye shapes and sizes, involves placing a line in the eyelid crease or diagonally to the sides of the outer space creating a cat-eye. Applying swipes of pigmented liner enhances the floating illusion between the crease and the brow bone. Alternatively, if you want the definition on your inner corners rather than your outer ones, reverse it.

One thing that is sure when it comes to trying out this liner trend is that floating liner is all about creativity, so embrace those mistakes and tailor the style to whichever way suits you. For more inspiration, we've included a few examples below for you to try. If it works out for you, tag Hypebae's Beauty Instagram for a chance to be featured.
