|A simple liner look, to begin with.|
It's been a wee while since I did a pictorial (or indeed any post at all) and one of the most common requests I have is around eye make-up. Given the quantity of eye make-up I tend to wear I thought I'd split this into two series - the first eyeliner and then eye shadow. I decided to do liner first because, with the addition of just some red lippy that's much more of a standalone look than shadow alone, so for the next three posts we'll learn a different liner look, perhaps with some shadow inspiration thrown in when the mood strikes!
I'm going to cover three basic looks, which with some Googling you will easily be able to deviate from to cover off lots of different variations.
1. Basic / suits all
Here I've aimed to apply the liner in a way which will open up your eyes and provide definition to both top and bottom lashes. You can play with where you bring the liner to depending on your own eye shape / preferences.
First off, I've used a sharpened kohl pencil to apply a fine line at the base of the upper lashes. I've started at the middle of the lid, applying to the outer corner.
|Step 1: line from the middle of the eye to the outer corner (or slightly beyond|
if you prefer - I do!)
|Step 2: extending the line inwards slightly. Usually to the point above where your|
iris ends, if in doubt).
|Step 3: re-draw where you want more definition / to even up.|
|Step 4: joining the bottom and upper lash lines with a little more black. And|
apparently an extraordinarily large hand...
See the first picture, above, for the end result.
Next up will be cat eye-liner, followed by pin-up flick. Make sure to use my tag on instagram to make sure I can see the results of your efforts!!
Til next time kitty kats - love, hugs and lash fluttering kisses
