Your eyes are probably your face’s most expressive feature and they deserve to look prettier, obviously! Well, an eyeliner can do just that! The eyeliner is a must-have if you want to add a dramatic effect to your look! It may be the trickiest part in your make-up routine, but it makes all the difference. When skilfully applied, an eyeliner not only adds beauty to your eyes, but also accentuates, reshapes and draws attention.
Don’t know how to create different looks with eyeliner? You need not worry. Here are a few simple but fun ideas for you. Just follow the step-by-step guide!
For a natural look, draw a fine line along your upper lashes. On the outside of your eye, slightly widen the line. If you have close-set eyes, line only the outer half of your eye lid.
For a sophisticated look, try this style. Line your upper lash line, with a black liner. Then line your bottom lashes from the middle and extend the line from the outer corners upward.
To create this look, line your upper eyelid with black eyeliner from the outer corner towards the end of your eyebrow. Line the bottom lashes, connect to the line you just made and color the triangle.
Pin-up Winged Eye Liner
To achieve this versatile and easy-to-create look, make a line just above your lashes all the way to the outer corner. Then draw a short upward tip that looks almost like an extension of the lower lash line. Now, draw a straight line from the tip to the middle of the eyelid. Lastly, fill the outline with a solid black color.
Fully Covered Lid
In order to achieve this more dramatic version of the cat’s eye, follow the steps outlined earlier.
However, the angle of the flick should be less upward.
To amp up your basic cat-eye, draw one line toward your crease, another toward your lid and the third past your lower lash-line. Now, make all three converge at the end of your eyebrow.
This can be created using a kohl pencil on the bottom and liquid liner on the top. Line your upper waterline from the inner corners of your eye, all the way to the outer one. Repeat on your lower waterline.
The liner should get thicker as you go outward. Go all the way out, to about half an inch, then create a winged look by moving the line upwards.
The Winding-down-your-cheek Liner
To achieve this badass look, draw a line beginning from the end of your eyebrow. Go down, just about passing the outer corner of your eye. Take this around the lower lash-line, towards the nose. Stop at the nasal bone.
