EYELINER MAKES YOUR EYES ATTRACTIVE
There is really nothing more classic in makeup than eyeliner. It is such a glossy, clean look, but it can be difficult to achieve without the proper technique. There are many techniques that people use to create beautiful eyeliner.
Many people use marker eyeliner. It is easy to create eyeliner. But it is mostly used in abroad. While some people like to start right at the inner corner of the eye, but some like to start at the outer end. Eyeliner goes through different fashion products more than just about any other type of makeup. Sometimes it’s cool to have on thick, black eyeliner. Sometimes it’s all the frenzy to have it as light and pencil-thin as possible. So if you want to learn how to apply eyeliner, you may want to check out the latest trends to determine what styles are in fashion at the moment. There are still some very general but important rules you need to know about how to apply eyeliner from a technical standpoint. You will first need to decide whether you want to use a pencil liner, marker liner or a liquid liner.
The main benefit of pencil eyeliner is that it’s easy to control. But the downside is; it can lack smoothness. Therefore, when choosing pencil eyeliner, try to go for a brand that’s creamy on as smoothly as possible. Unfortunately, those are usually the more expensive brands, but as they say, “beauty is not cheap.” For your lower lid, or what is often called the “waterline,” it’s essential for the safety of your eye to use pencil eyeliner. The waterline is the little “outcrop” that holds your lower eyelashes.
This part is a bit trickier, because you’re getting a lot closer to the eye. First, use your guide finger to smooth out the waterline by pulling the skin next to it outward. Again, use short, quick movements to apply the eyeliner. Start near the center of the eye and work outwards. You can also, if you choose, go back to the center and work toward the tear tube if you prefer a full line. Just be extremely careful not to get too close to your eye. Now just repeat the process on the other eye.
Liquid eyeliner is more difficult to control than pencil eyeliner, but it does go on more smoothly, creating a sleeker look. It’s very dangerous, however, to use liquid eyeliner on your waterline, so only use it on your upper eyelid. It is also called pan cake eyeliner.
To apply liquid eyeliner, you will need an eyeliner brush, if possible an angled one. You can apply it essentially the same way you would apply the pencil liner, but it requires a little bit more skill, because the brush is harder to control than the pencil. Liquid eyeliner usually creates a thinner line also, making it acceptable to go all the way in toward the tear tube.
You want to use short, quick strokes, while it may seem more logical to apply eyeliner in one watery motion, this can be a problem if you go off course. If you keep the strokes small, you’re basically building a line gradually, so it is easier to stay on track.
These are the basics of eyeliner application; if you want an edgier eyeliner look, start paying attention to the latest trends to see how others are pushing the covering. Or if you want to really be bold, start your own trend and make your eyes beautiful.
