Inspired by the graphic eyeliner movement, Underliner is an eyeliner technique that offers a more subtle approach while still holding an edgy appeal. 

Underliner eyeliner can either be grungy and smudgy along the lower lash line, crisp and clean for a modern look, or in a winged shape for a more graphic effect.

Whether it's a shock of teal under the lash lines or a touch of diffused brown shadow, underliner gives your eyes a little extra depth and mystery. 


Pencil eyeliner is our product of choice given that the underliner look is typically thicker than other eyeliner looks. 

The Goddess Pencil is our go-to liner for creating this look— its built-in smudger which allows for seamless blending and smudging. Featuring a smooth and creamy formula that glides along the lashline, while still delivering a precise application, and remaining soft to allow for smudging before it sets to a formula that will not budge or flake.

If you’re leaning towards a more graphic eyeliner look for the underliner trend – you may like to consider using liquid eyeliner for a crisper and more defined look. The Liquid Define creates smooth and precise lines and has one stroke application making it perfect for creating a clean, well-defined underliner look.
