8 Types of Eye Delineation

One of the most challenging parts about achieving a good makeup is the eye delineation. Using properly the eyeliner to get a perfect eye makeup requires patience and countless hours of practice.

It’s not just about how good you outline your eyes, but also about what type of makeup it’s better for your eye and face shape, and even for the outfit, you’re wearing and the occasion.

Most common eye delineation

Cat Eyes

This type of delineation is one of the favorites. It gives us an extremely beautiful ripped-eyed effect, and that's the reason women choose this one when they want a touch of intensity to their gaze with a retro style.

Pin Up

This one is the complement of a very specific type of outfit, but it doesn't mean you can’t find new ways to wear it. It’s a retro style as well, and it’s a thick line on the upper eyelid that ends with the shape of a small arrow.

Double flick

This a type of eye delineation has two styles: one that has a thick line on the upper eyelid and another similar on the lower eyelid, but they don’t touch each other; the second one it’s a thick line on the upper eyelid with a double flick.


It's perfect women with big eyes. The key to accomplishing this look is making a thick line and a large arrow.


This one is ideal for women with small eyes. The eyeliner is used to outline the upper eyelid, from the half lower eyelid to the corner of the eye. Complete this look by adding a light color eyeshadow or applying pen in the lacrimal.


This look was made for sassy women. It’s a very thick line that covers almost all the upper eyelid and ends at the eyebrows in a peak to up. There has to be another tiny pinnacle in the lacrimal. For this look, it's advisable to use a waterproof eyeliner.

Thin Flick

This is the best choice for those women who don't like to wear a lot of makeup. It is, literally, just a fine and elegant line on the upper eyelid that stands out a little the gaze.


To those with small eyes, this is a good choice as well. It’s a thick line that starts at the beginning of the upper eyelid and ends on the small peak. You must makeup inside the lower eyelid to frame the gaze.
