Read on to see how I got this eyeliner look and learn tips to do it yourself!
FIRST Pick your choice of eye liner.
I personally like liquid liners that have a little brush at the end, you dip into liquid. I find it easier to glide on the eyelid.
The one I’m using today and pretty much use everyday is my favorite NYX black liquid eye liner in Matte.
The thinner the line the better. If you make it too big it’s harder to erase as opposed to starting small and building on top of it to make it more bold.
TIP # 1 open your eyes and look straight.
When looking straight you can really see where you want your eye liner to go.
TIP #2 you want the line to basically continue from where your bottom water line ends.
This will make the liner flow into a nice shape that will flatter your eye shape.
Tip #3 make sure you dip it right before starting so there’s enough liquid on the brush.. BUT not too much because then it will come out globby and thick.
Tip #4 be very light handed and do baby strokes.
(It’s okay if it’s a little bumpy through the line .. that’s the point of trying to make it thin because if you mess up and make it bumpy you can put another layer on top to blend the bumps/mistakes in)
P.S. Please ignore my funky eyelashes..
For the base line – Thicker on the outer and then getting thinner as the closer you get to your inner corner
For the wing line – thicker on the corner while the line gets smaller toward the end tip of the wing.
Should start to look like this.
… and that’s exactly what I did … so ignor that for now I fix those little black annoying dots later LOL
All eye shapes are different so when looking at top eyeliner on someone with their eyes closed it will most likely be a different shape on everyone.
Mine usually looks like this because when my eye is open is looks like a straight line
So how you find what looks best is keep opening your eye to see where you want it then close and fill it in and repeat until you get the shape you want.
This my eye liner with my eyes open..
See! It smooth’s all into one flowing straight line!
NOW ITS TIME FOR EYE NUMBER 2
