According to Marie Claire, some of 2022's most prominent makeup trends are face gems — thanks to HBO's "Euphoria" — including vibrant, bold lipsticks, glossy skin and lips, and kitten eyeliner. In addition to the kitten look, Marie Claire adds that white eyeliner is gaining popularity. While some of these trends will probably come and go, the white liner trend shouldn't fade out, as it can make anyone's eyes pop.

Traditionally, most people instinctively reach for a black liner to add some drama to the eye area. Brown, blue, and even purple liners tend to be well-liked options as well depending on the wearer's style and eye color. So, why are people interested in white eyeliner now? Believe it or not, white eyeliner can significantly enhance your eyes, regardless of their hue or shape.

Southern Living explains that, while black liner can actually make your features look harsher, white eyeliner can make your eyes look more lively and can even make you seem younger. Plus, the eyeliner's white color can make your eyes appear larger and more pronounced, helping you seem less tired. Who wouldn't want to find a product that helps them look less sleepy after a long night of studying, passion, or partying?

There are many ways to rock white eyeliner

A perk of experimenting with white eyeliner is that you won't be confined to just one look. Think of all the different ways beauty fanatics apply and design their dark eyeliners; you can do all that and more with a stick of white liner! Byrdie rounded up some different looks to explore using white eyeliner, and we can't wait to try them. For example, try wearing it on your waterline or even a winged swipe of white liner on your waterline to complement the whites of your eyes and make them pop.

For some easy enhancement, Byrdie also noted that you should apply a bit of white liner to the inner or outer corners of your eye area for something noticeable enough but not too over the top. Or, if you're feeling dauntless, have fun dabbling with bolder looks such as a dramatic cat-eye or an intense line higher up on your eyelid.
