Where should eyeliner start?
Layer Your Liners – Crave the inky-black, perfectly flicked look of liquid liner but lack the technique for a precise line? Line your eye with a pencil liner first, then layer the liquid on top. This intensifies your line, without requiring the skill of tracing precisely on a blank canvas (i.e., your lid).
“While looking down in the mirror, tilt your head back, then steady your drawing arm/elbow on a flat surface,” says Loiz. “Start at the outer corners of the eye and draw liner going inward and go as close to your lash line as you can. Draw the line slow and steady. Fill in any gaps between your lashes with the eyeliner to give the illusion of fuller lashes,
If you have any mistakes, clean them up with a Q-tip and makeup remover.”
Where should eyeliner end?
Kind of how the wands choose the wizard in the world of Harry Potter, everyone has a liquid liner applicator that works for them. “Some people do better with a brush, others like a felt-tipped applicator,” says Stewart. “Everyone’s hand is slightly different.” She suggests experimenting with a few different kinds of applicators to figure out which you’re most comfortable with—and while that sounds time-consuming (and expensive), it’s worth it if you’re serious about getting a perfect cat eye.
Felt-tipped pens like Make Up for Ever Ink Liner ($23, sephora.com ) are best for beginners, since they offer the most control. Mistake #4: You only line your lower lash line “Using a dark liner on the bottom without a liner on the top makes the eye feel unbalanced and bottom-heavy, dragging the eyes down,” explains Stiles.
Plus, if you sweat or rub your eyes throughout the day, you could end up looking like one of Marc Jacobs’ goth girls, “Keep the liner to the top lid for a more lifted, youthful effect.” If you really, really want to go after your bottom lash line, Stiles recommends using a lighter color there than you’re using on the top.
“This will still give you definition, but feels softer and more flattering,” she adds. Mistake #5: Closing your eye when you’re drawing on a cat eye Here’s the annoying thing about cat eyes: You can draw them perfectly on both eyes and then realize that they’re totally uneven. Much of this comes down to placement.
The solution? Keep your eyes open. “When the eye is closed, you can’t see where the crease at the corner of the eye falls,” says Stewart. Assuming your eyes aren’t lopsided, this will help keep your liner even on both sides. (But when in doubt, we’re fans of this brilliant cat-eye hack,) Mistake #6: Wearing black liner in your waterline Lining the waterline is probably the most under-appreciated makeup trick ever.
- It’s an easy way to brighten up the eyes or get a super-precise look—but that’s only if you’re strategic with the colors.
- I love a dramatic eye, but very often black liner in the waterline can make your eyes look smaller,” says Stiles.
- Instead, Stiles suggests using a softer color, like bronze, gray, or bronze, and swears by taupe.
“It still gives you a sultry look without closing up your eyes and making them look smaller,” she explains. Another color that works? Pale gold, like how Gigi Hadid wore it here, Mistake #7: Winging it when you’re trying to wing your eyeliner We know, we know: nobody’s got the time for a 10-step eyeliner application.
But if you planning on being photographed or have a big event, it could be worth taking a more methodical approach to creating a dramatic look. Stewart suggests tilting your head back and looking into a mirror (with your eyes open!) to give you full visibility of your eyelid and keep your lashes out of the way.
Then, line up a brush with the outer edge of your lower lashes at a 45-degree angle. Draw a dot as far as you want your wing to go. Then, connect the dot to your outer corner. You can then continue to draw the line towards the center of your lower lash line.
Does brown eyeliner make your eyes look bigger?
Tip #5: Know The Three Fourths Rule – If you really want to make your eyes look bigger, try lining only the outer three-fourths of your lash line, which can help draw attention to the wider, outer corners of your eyes. Sometimes when you draw one solid line across your lashes, this can make your eyes appear smaller in the same way that lining them all the way around would.
