Makeup offers playability and adaptability. One product can serve more than one purpose. For example, your lipstick can easily double as a cream blush. In addition, the internet has been overwhelmed with multipurpose cosmetic products.
However, you don’t have to purchase new-age versatile makeup products. Instead, you can use what you already have at home.
For example, did you know your eyeshadow can double as eyeliner? Now you can create any color or style of eyeliner you desire!
Transform Eyeshadow Into Eyeliner
You can effortlessly take any eyeshadow color and turn it into an eyeliner with a few simple hacks.
Use A Mixing Medium
Brands like Inglot and Mac create mixing medium liquids. In addition, these products are often used to transform powder products into a cream or liquid. So all you need to do is add a few drops of mixing medium to your eyeshadow, and it’s ready to apply!
Grab Your Micellar Water
What if you don’t have access to purchase a mixing medium?
Thankfully, a mixing medium isn’t necessary, and it can be more beneficial to pro artists. However, your micellar water can also do the trick!
First, you can scrape out a little bit of your eyeshadow of choice onto the back of a makeup palette. Then, add a few drops of micellar water to transform your eyeshadow into a liner. Once it’s mixed evenly, it’s ready to apply.

Choose a Small Detailing Brush
A small eyeliner brush will ensure you have an effortless experience applying eyeliner. In addition, a tiny detailing brush will help create precise lines, and it can cover all the nooks and crannies of the lash line.
Also, you’ll notice you will have more control over your brush.
How to Apply Eyeshadow as Eyeliner
Once you create your eyeshadow mixture, how can you apply it to the eyes? Thankfully, there are no rules to applying makeup. However, follow along for a few tips to help trigger your inner artist.
Create A Winged Liner
First, you can always keep it timeless and draw winged eyeliner. A cat eye may not be creative, but you can switch up your eyeshadow and customize it into any color. Also, you can forget the wing altogether and apply the liner just to the lash line.
Experiment With Abstract Shapes
Who says eyeliner has to look even and flawlessly draw-on? Abstract graphic liner helps you tap into your creative side because your eyes don’t have to match, and you can create new shapes. For example, try an asymmetrical eye look.
In addition, you can layer multiple colors to achieve a bold statement eye. Abstract liner and shapes will provide an editorial effect.
Build Up Intensity
After you’ve applied your eyeshadow-eyeliner mixture, you can further intensify it with regular eyeshadow. In addition, this technique will create a bold and vibrant finish. Also, you can set your eyeliner in place, so it’s budge and smudge-proof.
