I have had a couple readers want to read about Tightlining so hear it is! If you don't know what Tightlining is thats okay. A lot of people have never heard of it. I, on the other hand, am obsessed with using this technique for makeup. It is like invisible eyeliner that makes your lashes look longer and more full! Who doesn't want long and thick lashes?! I use tightlining on every single client and on my self every day because it doesn't look like your wearing eyeliner and it really makes your eyes pop!
So what you want to do is pull your eyelid open and grab either black eyeliner or an angle brush with either liquid eyeliner on it or even black eyeshadow with some water to make your own eyeliner. You want to start on the outside and go inwards. If this is your first time doing it, your eyes will water!
So before I post some pictures of me of some examples of tightlining let me say that when I used to tightline, I always did the bottom water line. Now that I do makeup I know that it makes my eyes look a lot SMALLER when I do my bottom waterline. I usually just do my TOP waterline now. Here are some examples of tightlining I USED to do. Yes... Very Dramatic, I know!
Here is a picture of Kim K with her TOP waterline "tightlined".
Zooey Deschanel tightlines her TOP waterline.
Mila Kunis tightlines her entire eye, top and bottom waterlines.
So depending on what you are looking for you can either tightline your whole eye or just the top waterline or even just the bottom. Its pretty much whatever you want :) As long as you go from the outer corner of the eye all the way to the tear duct. It may smudge to the bottom the first couple blinks but if you wet a Q-tip and wipe away the left over on the bottom lash line you should be good! I would love to hear your comments or suggestions about Tightlining!
