You could also opt for a glitter eyeliner like the Heavy Metal Glitter Eyeliner from Urban Decay.
Cat eyeliner was pretty much the look of 2014-2019 but for 2020 we’re having a bit more fun with liner. Whether in interesting shapes or neon colours — anything goes in 2020.

Heavy lower liner
A very early 2000s trend, the heavy lower liner is back in 2020. This trend goes hand-in-hand with multi-level liner — pairing upper lid liner and lower lid liner —often in different colours.
