By popular demand (okay, only 2 of yall asked, lol), I bring you some eyeliner tips. When I tell you there is no RIGHT way to achieve the pretty simple line on the waterline, I ain’t lyin. I used to have crazy thick lines. Don’t believe me?
Exhibit A (May ’08)….
Yes family, I have learned a thing or two and thought I’d share them with you.
First–don’t think that your line has be perfect.
My preference is a gel eyeliner with an angled brush because you can control the width of your line. Pencil and liquid liners don’t allow that.
You can start any where on your lid. For the pictures, I started in the corner and worked my way out. Normally I start in the center. Do whatever works for you.
I imagine as if I’m drawing at the base of my lashes—not ON my lid. Does that make sense?
I take small strokes. Trying to make a complete straight line is sooo hard for me. Shoot, I can’t even draw a straight line on paper.
At the end I simply turn my brush for a little extra “winged” look.
But look closely at those mistakes…
A swip swip of a Q-tip dipped in make-up remover can clean that baby up.
Preguntas? Just let me know! What do you use to get the line on the waterline? Any tips or suggestions for me?
