If you all read the beauty resolutions list from earlier this month, then you may have seen perfecting Eyeliner. Winged eyeliner to be exact, but on my journey to doing that I ran into a few other techniques as well. Checkout these four amazing eyeliner tutorials to help you find and perfect your look.
The classic eyeliner look is just a straight simple line across the top lid. The thickness of this line is really up to you. One of the best ways achieve a perfect line is to do it step by step. Start out with drawing a few dashes on your top lid for you to connect. Once you’re done, gently connect them. If you want the line to be a little thicker, just go over it with another layer and you’re done.
The cat eye can be really tricky, but it’s pretty simple once you get the hang of it. The key to learning the cat eye technique involves drawing and connecting as well. Make a small dot at the corner of your eye, where your wing will end. This will help guide you while you make your line, which is step two. Create another line on your top lid (starting at the middle) and connect it to the first line. You should have an open/unshaded cat eye drawn. Begin to carefully shade it in, and elongate the eyeliner towards the inner corner of your eye. When you’re done smudge the liner with an eyeliner brush.
Smudging is a really cool technique for giving yourself an instant smokey eye look. To achieve the smudgey smokey eye look, all you need to have is a pencil eyeliner and a smudge brush. Start off with applying a nude eyeshadow for a pop of color. Begin lining your top lash line from front to back, until you’ve reached each corner. Proceed to line the bottom lash line, but only a little more than midway through. This technique cuts back on the harshness of the smokey eye. With you eyelid shut begin to lightly smudge/dab the smudge brush slowly from front to back. Then begin to do the same thing on the bottom lash line.
The upside cat eye is a new trend. I think people are still feeling this one out, but I think this style is cute enough to play around with. It may also be easier to achieve than the original cat eye. You can achieve this look with just a regular pencil eyeliner. You always want to start off with a nude eyeshadow to give your eyelids just a little color. Start drawing a sharp edge line from the inside corner of your eye to the back. Both ends should be pointed and the line should grow thicker as you reach the back corner of your eye. It should resemble the classic cat eye look that you’d achieve on your top lid.
