What if we told you that you could have bigger, more defined eyes without the use of mascara? What if we promised you that it was possible in less than a minute? We can hear you guys cheering and applauding so sit down and take notes! Tightlining is a technique used by makeup artists all around the globe. It is a simple method of applying eyeliner between the roots of your lashes and to the upper waterline (the rim of your eye directly beneath your lashes). This may sound complicated, but in reality it is the easiest trick you can use and the more you practice, the less time it will take!
The art of tightlining requires only one tool – fantastic eyeliner. Whether a pencil or gel based, the only criteria that really matters is that the formula should be waterproof. Lakme eyeconic kajal in the original black, MAC Eye Kohl in Smolder and Maybelline Eye Studio Lasting Drama Gel Eyeliner in Blackest Black win our approval. Let’s now move on to perfect eyes!
First of all, get yourself in front of a mirror with good lighting – we don’t want you to poke yourselves in the eye! Next, raise your chin so that you can get a good view of your upper waterline. Gently pull your eyelid up and simultaneously trace your upper waterline. As you get better, you won’t even need to pull up your lids. To get the most defined eyes, run the liner back and forth a few times. To finish up, dot the spaces between your lashes with the liner.
Lastly, get out of the house and flaunt those gorgeous peepers!
