How To Get The Cleopatra Eye Look In 3 Simple Steps

Eyeliner is one tool that can change up your look in an instant. You can go understated with a simple, thin line or go all out with a thick, dramatic line paired with equally dramatic wings. But if you’re looking to change up your makeup style from the done-to-death wings, we have something equally bold and fabulous for you to try - Cleopatra eyes! This glam makeup style will ensure all eyes are on you wherever you go. Here’s how to nail the look as well as the perfect eyeliners you need to try it.

The Best Eyeliner To Use

We would recommend a gel liner like the Lakmé 9 To 5 Naturale Gel Kajal since it gives an intense, black finish which is just what you need for this look. Gel liners are not as overwhelming to use as a liquid liner and the brush makes application and precision much easier. However, if you’re accustomed to using liquid liners than you can try the Lakmé 9 To 5 Black Impact Liner, the long handle will give you a comfortable grip. The Lakmé Absolute Shine Liner is a fabulous option if you want a super glossy look.


Begin drawing your eyeliner as you usually would with a simple line along your upper lash line. Now repeat the same along your lower lash line as well.


Thicken the eyeliner around your eyes and extend the line beyond the outer corners in a straight line, as opposed to a curved flick like you would do for cat-eyes. Do the same on the bottom and connect both the lines in a thick, box-like shape


Just as you did for the outer corners, now extend both your lines in the inner corner and connect them. Voila, you’re ready to paint the town red with your dazzling, Cleopatra-esque eyes!
