    3. For a party-ready smoky eye, dab some glittery gold eyeshadow into the inner corners.

    4. Add a tiny flick of hot pink at the corners.

    5. For long-lasting application on oily eyelids, apply a cream eyeshadow base underneath a gel eyeliner.

    6. Forgo eyeshadow and instead, cross-hatch gel liner onto lids and blend for long-lasting, budge-proof coverage.

    7. Add a little bit of ice blue shadow underneath the eye.

    8. Apply black eyeshadow in a "whale" shape to create this winged smoky eye look.

    9. Monolids can take advantage of this simple vertical gradient eyeshadow look.

    10. A really bright white eyeliner along the bottom waterline can look totally FUTURE.

    13. For a dramatic winged look, draw an outline, then fill it in.

    14. Orange eyeshadow can look amazing when blended with a dark color on the outer corners.

    15. Instead of adding a pop of color on the lids, add a little mint to the inner corner.

    16. Create a more subtle winged effect by outlining the wing with liner and then blending.

    17. When lining the bottom waterline, only bring the eyeliner three-fifths of the way back to the inner rim. It'll open up the eye.

    18. For a sleeker, more upturned effect, do the opposite and only line the bottom inner corner with black eyeliner.

    19. As you can see, the way you apply eyeliner can really change the shape of your eyes.
