beauty-school: eyeliner REFRESHER TIPS {to brush up on!}

eyeliner tricks to brush up on


so I was really chuffed when I found these how-to-do refresher tips!

Need to brush up too? Read on…

* A pencil or a gel-based liner is easier to control than a liquid liner. However, liquid liner will often look a bit more dramatic {with liquid liner, start by lightly tracing a line with a pencil, then go over it with liquid liner}.

* Apply liner starting near the inner corner of the eye as close to the lash line as possible. {It’s best to use a freestanding mirror so you can look down into the mirror with a stretched out lid}.

* For a more intense look, thicken the line toward the outer edge of the eye.

* Next, starting on the outer edge of your line, slightly extend and wing out your eye liner, then gently work backwards to fill in any gaps and strengthen the line {as shown above!]

* To perfect your line {and help with it’s staying power}, go over your line with an eyeshadow brush. {This makes a huge difference!} You can also add a little dark shadow of you want!

* Finally, fix any mistakes with a little makeup remover on a cottonbud.
