Applying Eye Liner
to Apply Eye Liner
Use of eye liners means adding depth
to your eyes: Depth and intensity, drama and expression come
to the eyes through the clever use of definers: eyeliners,
pencils and kohls. Available in rich, daddy shadedcolours, these
emphasize the eyes, create new shapes and give the eyes a mysterious
and exotic allure. Eye liner is used
to make the eyes more prominent and create an illusion of
thicker lashes. Eye lining is done with a black or brown eye liner
top lid of each eye and sometimes under the lower lashes.
Here again, practice will make you perfect.
Using the liquid liner Test, on the back of your
hand, the amount of pressure you should apply. Unless you are a real
artIst, it is best
to steady your elbow on a flat surface. Work from the inside
of the eye
to the outside comer and keep the line light and even. If you
at the comer of the eyes, the effect will be round and wide-eyed;
if you continue the line and sweep it up and out, you would get a
more exotic look. Finally smudge the edges with a cotton
to soften them.
to Apply Eye Liner
Eye liner using a few simple techniques can
dramatically affect the look and shape of your eyes. Whether you
choose a soft line or a dramatic stroke, eyeliner draws attention.
When using an eye pencil, open your mouth
to relax the eye muscles. It will make lining a lot easier
to pull or tug at your lid.
Draw a thin line, try
to draw as close
to the base of your eyelids as possible. Start from the
inside corner of your eye and work your way out. If you are not
expert in drawing one long line all at once, do it in short strokes.
If you used a brush or a pencil, soften the look
by gently smudging the line with your brush, a cotton
swab or your finger.
Move the wet brush gently through your cake liner
or dark shadow. Hold the brush or pencil as you would hold a pen.
Using an eyeliner appropriate for your eye color.
Brown, navy and charcoal accent light eyes well, while brown and
plum shades flatter brown eyes. Make sure your liner complements the
color of your shadow.
Applying Eye Liner Application
Use an eyeliner that has a mechanical, twist-up-pencil
type tip. I find that these are the easiest
If you use a pencil or crayon type liner, instead
of a liquid one, put the line on and use a cotton
to smooth out the line. This makes it a lot easier and
Applying eyeliner half way along the bottom
lash line makes your eyes look rounder and more defined. Don't worry
too much about a straight neat line; simply smudge the line
with a cotton
bud or your finger so it's soft and natural looking.
Keep your eye slightly open. Tilt your head back
and look at the mirror with both eyes open. That allows you
to get very close
to your eyelash line.
Do not put on mounds of eyeliner because you will
look like a raccoon about three hours later.
