Hii beauties !
This post is more focused on how to achieve flawless application of eyeliner. I have tried 4 most basic styles of eyeliner. I thought of doing a tutorial for it and share tips and tricks for pulling off these styles
Style 1 :- Regular Eyeliner style
This is the most easy eyeliner style one does in routine. Following is how you can get this eyeliner style:-
- Start from picking up small amount of eyeliner on brush; rest your hand on your cheek for steadiness.
- Place your brush on your inner corner of eye as close to lashes, and start pulling slowly towards the middle of your eye. Note, while pulling the stroke, only your hand should move from one direction to other, but should rest on your cheek for steady application. This will greatly help.
- Then again get some eyeliner on brush, and rest your hand on cheek, start from the middle of your eye where you left and begin pulling it outwards just where your eyes end Ta daaaaa….. ! you have created a simple regular eyeliner !
Style-2 :- Rock Chick Style eyeliner
Okay, this is also the most basic style of eyeliner, most common with college going girls. This style has eyeliner/kohl on upper lid and on waterline too. Let’s see, how we can do it:-
- This style is the extension of the regular eyeliner. How ?
- I just added lots of kohl on waterline and bottom lash line. For perfect all day no smudge or flake proof look, go and invest in a gel eyeliner, in this case I’m using Maybelline gel eyeliner in black.
- Note, while applying the gel eyeliner/ kohl on bottom lash, you might lose steadiness ! not a problem, keep some Q-tips handy and clean unwanted parts. This will also help in achieving the clean stroke.
Style 3 :- Winged Eyeliner Style
This is the most famous style of eyeliner application! Why ? We’ve grown up seeing actresses supporting this style. So for the beginners, this is just an extension of the “regular eyeliner” we did. This is how we can achieve it:-
- Start from the outer corner of the eye, except we are not extending the eyeliner from the point where we left previously. We are going to start drawing a stroke from the very outer corner inwards (this is the part when you want to decide the length of the winged eyeliner)
- Therefore, decide a point on the outer corner and from that point, start pulling your brush inwards joining it with the eyeliner we applied before. This will create a slant wing
- If you make mistakes, don’t worry remember the “rest your hand on cheek” rule, and re-apply the eyeliner on the base stroke to achieve the best width and neat application you want we’re done with the “winged eyeliner” too
Style 4:- Cleopatra Style Winged eyeliner:-
This one is the extension of the simple winged eyeliner. all I did is chose a point farther from the point I chose for the simple winged eyeliner. Let’s see how:-
- In this case, we can always decide the length of the eyeliner, and that is what makes this style stunning.
- The basic idea for this eyeliner is the length of the wing, there are no rules, and anyone can adjust the length accordingly.
- So lengthening from the simple winged eyeliner, I extended the wing from its edge towards my eyebrows in a single stroke with minimalistic product left on brush.
- Now for the inner corner of the eye, use a small angled brush or a felt tip eyeliner pen to create a small ‘>’. This is the most trickiest part, and only with practice anyone can achieve that right inner V, else you can leave it.
All these styles were done one after another; therefore any of you who practice this can follow it step by step or even one at a time, because all styles are extensions of each other. After doing these, I kind of played with the Cleopatra styled winged eyeliner and added some eye shadows , and this is what the end result was
Although it is dramatic, only if you shorten the length of eyeliner, this would be wearable.
