TIPS AND TRICKS

– When it comes to graphic liner, it’s crucial to use a liner with a very precise tip. Think of your liquid liner as the paintbrush and your eye as the canvas. Get creative – let your artistic ideas flow!

– For something more simple and wearable, use a black pen. Lancome’s Artliner in Noir is easy-to-use and super pigmented. At only $3, ELF’s liner is perfect for someone who only wants to play around with the trend a few times.

– Make your look pop even more by incorporating a metallic or colorful liner. Urban Decay has a wide selection of fun colors, ranging from sparkly silver to hot pink.

– If you have time, draw out your look on paper first. That way, you can have a reference point when you’re drawing the look on your eye. This is especially helpful if the design is more intricate.

– To avoid, a messy or muddy eye, keep eyeshadow to a minimum. Go with neutral shades. Let the liner be the focus of the look!

– Since it’s so bold, balance it out by pairing with a nude or light pink lip. Anastasia’s Pure Hollywood would be a perfect complement.
