Nude eyeliner is an essential in any makeup collection. It’s so versatile and can help really elevate your makeup look. You don’t have to spend a lot on one— I use the Wet n Wild ColorIcon Kohl Eyeliner in Calling Your Buff , which I picked up at CVS for a dollar! As cheap as it is, it’s helped me clean up my makeup application for a more put together and clean look.

Watch the video above to see these hacks in action, or keep reading for a quick run down!

First of all, I recommend an actual nude pencil liner (not a retractable liner) because you can sanitize it by quickly sharpening it. This is important when you’re using the liner for more than just your eyes, so you can avoid cross contamination.

1. Fleek Your Brows

I find the liner to be more convenient for cleaning up brows than concealer, and it can still camouflage small stray hairs while keeping them in place with a pseudo-wax effect. I also use it to shape my arch when evening my brows out.

2. Brighten Your Eyes

A well known beauty hack to get brighter and bigger looking eyes is to use white eyeliner on the bottom water line. But, this can tend to look very harsh and unnatural. Using nude eyeliner is a great way to achieve the same result with a more subtle effect.

3. Get Even with Your Eyeliner

THE WORST, right? Then, when you try to even them out with black liner, you often end up with panda eyes or wings WAY thicker than you wanted. Using a nude eyeliner is like having a makeup eraser to help shape and clean up your liner to get both sides even! Swipe it along the bottom of your wing and use an angled brush to blend and “erase” any mistakes.

4. Highlight the Nose

Lately, I’ve been reserving the shimmery glow for my cheeks, and want something a little more natural when I’m contouring and highlighting my nose. A nude liner is perfect for this, as it helps actually helps to shape your nose as it looks more natural.

5. Cut Your Contour

To achieve this, I draw a line where I want the contour to end (usually right below the hollow of my cheek), then blend out using a flat foundation brush.

6. For Overdrawing the Lips

If you’re planning on overdrawing your lips, using a nude eyeliner is a great way to plan out your shape. It doesn’t stain, so you can start over if you don’t like how it looks, and it matches any lipstick shade! You can also use it to clean up any smudges and get a more defined lip line once you’ve put the color on.
