Eyeliner. It’s common to have a love/hate relationship with the product that can emphasize and flatter your eyes, or make you look like a crazy person. There are different formulations–pencil, gel and liquid being the three main ones–and every color you can think of on the market.
Eyeliner can make your eyes look bigger, smaller, more rounded, more almond, closer together or further apart. It can highlight your eye color or bring out the different flecks of color you might not even know you had. It can make you look sultry, more awake, retro or trendy. It’s no wonder that eyeliner is part of the daily routine of so many women.
As awesome as eyeliner is, it can be tricky to apply. I could write a series of posts about the various formulations, techniques and what works best on different eye shapes, but I don’t know how helpful that would be. So I’ve decided help you out with some eyeliner tutorials from professional makeup artists on YouTube. With pro guidance and some practice, you too can excel in eyeliner application. Sound good?
Winged Liner. A classic look, and the one people struggle with the most. Let Lisa Eldridge be your guide.
Winged Liner for Hooded Lids. This can be pretty tough, so give yourself plenty of practice sessions. But once you get it, I think you’ll love it. (If you don’t have hooded lids, watch the first tutorial instead.)
Sultry Eyeliner. A great night out eye makeup look. This is full on so it might feel pretty dramatic if you don’t normally wear eyeliner. It will make your eyes look smaller, so if your eyes are already on the smaller side, it’s probably not the best choice for you.
Kitten Flick with Liquid Liner. A little easier (and subtle) than a full winged look. You could also do this with a gel liner.
Off White Liner. If you want to make your eyes look bigger or more awake, watch this one.
Cat Eye Look. Contrary to popular belief, it’s different than a winged liner. Similar to to the sultry liner, but Charlotte Tilbury has some other application tips.
Something Different. Feeling adventurous? Give this a try.
Did I miss any? If so, leave a comment and I’ll find a good tutorial to help guide you.
Have a beautiful day 🙂
