Eye Liner Trends for 2023

Eye liner dates back to the Egyptians over 12,000 years ago and yes, it’s still relevant. Specific trends for eyeliner style change but we want to share the latest for 2023. Drumroll please …. The top 3 fashion forward trends for eye liner are siren eyes, coquette eyes, and graphic cat eyes. Now, let’s get into what this really means, what it looks like, and how to do it.

Siren Eyes

The siren cat eye is all about creating a smoky, sexy cat eye. This is done by smudging the liner for eyeshadow. This look is one step up from a smokey eye look because it elongates the look of the eye creating a more almond shape. This look also has a lifted brow tail which overall creates a “fox eye” look.

How do you do it? 

As always there are lots of tutorials on line but we like this post from cosmopolitan.com where they not only showcase the steps but also include videos and product recommendations. If this post isn’t helping check on TikTok or other posts, there is lots of instruction out there.

Coquette Eyes

The coquette makeup trend is one of the largest for 2023. It’s an ultra feminine, flirty color pallet that links back to the 18th century. Think shades of pink, penalized pallets and light shimmer. These shades help to create a “doe eye” look. The coquette eye is basically a doe eye with a siren lash.

How do you do it?

The coquette eye is all about the lighter feminine shades with the hard line of the cat eye. For more guidance check this post from glamourmagazine.

Graphic Cat Eyes

It’s just what is sounds like. You can emphasize the cat eye shape by adding long graphic strokes to your cat eye lines. You can do this with black or add pops of color. The idea is to have fun and literally add an artistic, architectural touch to your look.

How do you do it?

In general you should simply consider the best way to emphasize the cat eye lines. We recommend looking on line for inspiration and specific direction. There are literally hundreds of ideas posted to get inspiration from.

While the siren, coquette and graphic cat eye are the latest trend we feel the need to cover two of the basic cat eye looks. The cat eye and the winged eye.

Cat Eye

The gaol of this look is what it sounds like. You want to use the eyeliner to make your eyes appear more cat like. This is done by applying a line to the top of the eyelids forming an upward stroke toward the outer edge of the eye.

How do you do it?

Carefully pull your eyeliner from the corner of your eye to the middle of your lid. Position your line as high as you want your cat eye to go then draw a line to connect the inner corner of your eye with your cat eye. Tips: do not pull on your eyelid as this will ruin the integrity of the tail lines. It’s also important to do your best to create fluid lines. There are lots of tools available to help make this look. We recommend you consider stencils, eye liner brushes, thin eyeliner tools and stamps. All of these will help make the look perfect.

Winged Eye

For a more exaggerated look the winged eye is where you create a thicker wing that includes the top and bottom lash line.

How do you do it?

For directions we like this post from ipsy.com because they not only give direction but offer adjustments based on your eye shape.

In summary, eyeliner is till an important part of makeup beauty trends. If you’r looking for a more dramatic, sexy look you should try one of the many cat eye looks.
