I learned from many beauty gurus on Youtube that white eyeliner on your waterline “opens the eye and makes you look rested and fresh!” While white does generally match the color of your eyeball and does make your eyes look bigger, I find that there are more effective ways to look well rested and fresh.
It’s easy to notice that the girls below are all wearing white eyeliner. It’s still a strong look. Just like wearing black is a statement, wearing white is a bold look on the opposite spectrum. Personally, I’ve learned that I can’t pull off white eyeliner on my lower lash line without looking like my eyelashes have dandruff.
If you do want to open your eyes and look well rested, I think you should either go for a nude colored eye liner or use the white liner very sparingly as illustrated below. For specific products, Tarte has a really great nude inner rim pencil, but I softly use a white liner from NYX as a cheaper alternative to get the job done when needed. Both are creamy but solid enough to stay on the waterline. If all else fails, I think a good concealer paired with a natural blush can make you look naturally radiant any time.
Of course, the best way to look well rested will always be to get plenty of sleep and make sure you’re hydrated! What’s your experience with white and nude eyeliner?
