Have you ever just gone to the mirror after watching a pinterest post on eyeliner and thought I’m just going do my eyes quickly, I’ll be only gorgeous in a few minutes the glamazon on pinterest did it in about 5 seconds. Cut to you, eyes watering, two eyes look totally different, looking like a crack pot, really sorry you started?. Well, I have a great solution for this.
There are different types of eyeliners for different occasions or effects but I want to keep this simple so we are just discussing one type now. I like the Rimmel Exaggerate Waterproof Black Eyeliner. I also really like the Benefit, Waterproof Eyeliner in Black. If I look really tired and want to look less so, this is what I do.
Using the exxagerate liner, I line the upper waterline, staying as close to the lash line as I can. The best set up is to look down, taking blink breaks as you go. I have overhanging lids which is problematic when doing a flick. Most of the time I don’t bother with it but when I do want to, I find going straight outwards from the edge of the eye as opposed to high upwards suits me best. I recommend you stand back and look from a distance what you have done, we don’t want hoochy ladies, just a little bit sexy and cool, so not too much product. Use a cotton bud if things get messy, you can put a bit of cleanser on it if necessary.
This is a great tip because it prevents you ending up with eyeliner all over your eyelid from attempting to do it above your lash line, blinking and ending up with a mess. The important thing is to take your time, stop every few secs, blink take a break and go back then.
Available in McCauleys and costs approx €5
I usually begin with tinted lashes, I think this gives your eyes a bit more definition and a tint gets right in to the root of the hair. If you are interested in getting an eyelash tint, give me a call on 086 6095122. Patch test required 48 hours prior to treatment.
