The key to getting the perfect anime eyes is eyeliner and makeup brushes, so make sure you read this all the way through to get some great tips and tricks to do this like a pro! Have fun with your new anime eye makeup look!

Step 1: Get your hands on these products


A white pencil, a cream or powder eye shadow, black mascara, and a sponge-tip applicator. My personal favorite is from Tarte Cosmetics—their Deluxe Amazonian Clay Waterproof 12-Hour Eyeliner in Nudist is my go-to eyeliner because it’s creamy (good for blending), has a fine tip (great for detailed work) and last forever. For mascara, I’m partial to Japanese brand Heroine Make Long & Curl Mascara; it comes with its own custom-made spoolie and really does make my lashes extra long and curly.

Step 2: Fill in your eyebrows with a dark brown pencil


If you need a step-by-step, try NYX’s Brow Pencil Duo ($6). If you don’t have any pencils, NYX also sells their own. You want something that’ll fill in your brows and make them look natural. You don’t want it to look like they were drawn on with a sharpie or anything. I recommend making sure your eyebrows are shaped well before starting on step 2. Or, at least draw them on while they’re still nice and clean (from washing). That way, if you mess up, you can wash off your eyebrow pencil and try again. Once they’re filled in go ahead and blend out until it looks natural for your face shape.

Step 3: Eyebrows are done! Let’s begin with the eyes


We want to create a bright and vibrant look, so we’ll be starting with white as our primary color. Start by applying a generous amount of white eye shadow all over your lid up to your brow bone. I recommend using a big fluffy brush for easy application. We also want to bring some of that color around to soften our eye crease, so take it right under your eyeball and blend it in. You can also add some extra color on top of your lids as well if you like! Just make sure not put too much light colors here or you’ll overwhelm yourself! So now that we have our white base done, let’s go for something more vibrant!

Step 4: Start with light pink


Light pink is a key color for achieving a classic, feminine anime look. You’ll want to start with foundation that matches your skin tone as closely as possible, so choose one that’s a shade or two lighter than what you usually wear. Next, blend it into your cheeks using a sponge applicator and sweep it under your brow bone and around each eye in large circles until it’s well blended. To create an off-the-face look, don’t blend too much; rather, try dabbing lightly around each area of application with gentle upward strokes—this will give you natural gradation and make blending unnecessary. Don’t forget about beneath the outer corners of each eye—this detail is often overlooked but can really create depth when applied correctly!

Step 5: Continue with gold and purple


Bring these two colors together for an eye-catching (and incredibly fun) look. If you want a bolder, more colorful look that’s still fashionable and subtle, take a look at online tutorials and demos. In fact, you may find it hard to stop playing around with all of these new exciting looks! Just keep experimenting until you find what works best for you and what fits into your lifestyle in terms of cost, time commitment, and accessibility.

Step 6: Add some white and black for depth


You want a lot of white space between your lashes and your lower lid. The reason you don’t just fill in your whole eye area with black is because then it would look like you were wearing make-up, not just looking cool with naturally long lashes. You also want to add some shadows under your brow bone and towards your ear on either side of your nose bridge. Just draw lightly at first, you can always go over it if needed. This gives a natural shadowed effect that makes it appear as though there is more depth behind each lash, so they look longer. Now here’s a picture of my finished eye makeup!

Step 7: Do you have time for liner?


If not, skip to step 8. If you do, I would advise using a liner pencil (the water-proof kind). Personally, I find gel liners too time consuming and like how quickly I can apply a pencil. The downside is that if you don’t take your time applying it or don’t place it carefully around your eye (be sure not to go outside of your natural line), you can look a little strange. The other thing about pencils is that they aren’t as dramatic as liquid liners so you have less room for error in application.

Step 8 (Optional): Make your blush match your lips


It can be hard to tell whether you’ve chosen a lip color that will look good with your new eye look. The easiest way to find out? Swipe some lipstick onto your cheeks. But if it doesn’t work out, no worries—we have a ton of recommendations for blushes that go with every possible lip color. Trust us: There’s something for everyone!
