Sometimes applying a thicker top line can make the eye appear too big or too small depending on the shape and lid space. When you apply the top liner I recommend really trying to get it into the top lash line and keeping it as thin as possible. Keeping a color liner in the lashline is a guaranteed technique you can use without altering your eye or personal sytle ina dipleasing manner. So once you get it in there you can build the width and transform the eye if wanted or needed.
Try this...color a little spot on the back of your hand and use a smudge brush to wiggle that color into the bristles and then wiggle into the lower lash line for a natural finish…even with the most vibrant colors. This technique can be used with gel and cream liners as well. And keep in mind that applying a dark color on the inner rim of lower lash line may make eye apper smaller. This is okay for a smokey eye or drama, but for a bigger and brighter eye use a white, light or bright shade on inner rim.
These are some of my favorite finds…
Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencils
I have every shade of these. They are waterproof and really stay in place. I love how vibrant they are! Warning...Expect compliments when wearing.
Laura Mercier Eye Liner
Laura has mastered the perfect liner for the tightline technique. This is perfect for the innerr rim on upper lid. It is water proof and won't fall into eye. Use a flat, wet liner brush, swirl and get the product into a muddy consisency into the brushand then step in into the upper lash line from inner rim. Amazing! This is quite the eye opener for ANYBODY! Right now this comes in black, brown and blue.
Smashbox Cream Eye Liner
Chanel Le Crayon Yeux Precision Eye Definer
Chanel...I love you. This formula has a creamy consistency. It even has a sensual application that stays put and truly gives the feeling and look of couture. Coffee Bean is my favorite for creating a sexy, brown smokey eye.
Too Faced Starry Eyed Liquid Liner
Too Faced is a fun line to accessorize your makeup kit. It's Starry Eyed Liners are a must have when you want to be in tune to your playful, glam side of your personality. I recmmend that every kit has atleast one of their variety of shades.
Pencil Eyeliner By NYX
These have become a collectors item for me. You can buy them a dozen at a time without breaking the bank. If you want the Nars variety (and then some) for next to nothing then you definitely want to try these fun and flamboyant pencils. The pigment pops and the creativity factor just flows when using the NYX collection.
