So I had a personal request (Mrs. Anisa!) for an eyeliner tutorial 101. There are tons of different ways and techniques to apply ones eyeliner, but I figured I would give you just the barebones basics for the best way to apply your eyeliner. These simple actions will help your liner with staying power while also appearing the most natural looking (even though I used a not so natural bright navy color to show up better!).
Here it is, plain as day, as I can possibly show you in pictures and in words:
Step 1: Go ahead and apply a flesh colored shadow shade that matches your skin color all over your lid from lash line to brow bone. I have on Too Faced eyeshadow in Heaven, from the duo Teddy Bear & Heaven ($17). This neutral eyeshadow duo is my new go-to favorite by the way. It's a no brainer beautiful chocolate brown to slap on when in a hurry.
Step 2: Finish your eyeshadow shading with whatever color you want. I just applied a neutral matte brown color in the crease, Teddy Bear, from the Too Faced duo.
Step 3: Start your eyeliner (I used a navy pencil, but you can use this same technique with a gel or liquid) at the inner corner of the tear duct and draw a thin line as close to the lash line as possible to the center.
Step 4: I then go over to the outside corner of my eye and draw my line up slightly (this winged action creates a mini eyelift without the surgery!) then bring the line connecting back inward towards the center pupil area, connecting it back with the starter line.
Step 5: Take an angled short bristled eyeliner brush, and sweep a matching eyeshadow color that matches your eyeliner, on top of your eyeliner. Take this brush and sweep that color from inner tear duct to outside winged line. This step gives the liner staying power plus it makes the harsh imperfect line look more perfect and smooth!
