Do you still struggle with mastering the perfect winged eyeliner? (If it helps, we still use this cat eye tool!) The makeup gods (AKA beauty bloggers) are making it a little easier on us, and it might be time to switch up the flicked corner for a simple dot.
Dot eyeliner is the latest makeup trend to hit the beauty world, and wow are we obsessed. In literal seconds, the oh-so-simple look brings a chic and confident vibe to your entire appearance. Celebs like Zoe Kravitz and Emma Roberts are rocking it on the red carpet and in their day-to-day lives, and it's everything.
Sure, you're going to need a steady hand and a good eye for an even look (unless asymmetrical is what you're going for, then by all means!), but even more than the simplicity, we love how customizable this trend is.
If you're not ready to cannonball in, go for a simple dot just beneath your lower lash line. Feeling like you're ready for a step above that? Move your dots to the outer and/or inner corners of your eyes, or even above your brows.
If you're a whimsically bold person who isn't afraid to go big or go home, you can always add in colored eyeliners and instead of using normal eyeshadow, you can dot it on!

Total makeup by @maybellineitalia 👁👁 La mia carta segreta #maybelline nascondeva il #BrowDramaPomadeCrayon. Un comodissimo matitone retraibile che riempie e volumizza le sopracciglia in modo semplice e pratico. Ma in questa foto indosso anche il nuovo mascara #CigliaSensazionali e l'eye-liner #MasterPreciseCurvy perfetto per creare il mio #DotEyeliner, makeup preferito dell'estate! Vi ricordo che con l'acquisto di uno dei tre nuovi prodotti della collezione #giocaconlosguardo potete vincere fino a mille euro di buoni spesa! 🖖🏼
Sure, you can get a tool to do the already-simple work for you (like this "3-Dot Liner" from Clarins!), but if you're not looking to spend money, your fave liquid liner and a cotton swab will do the trick!
Play around with this fab dot eyeliner trend, and wear it any way you feel most confident. The makeup world is definitely seeing dots lately—and in the best way possible.
