For many years, I almost every day sum up the eyes of the liner. After so many workouts, I got so filled up that I could paint my eyes, looking at the reflection on the microwave door.
Beautiful arrows – this is a great way to correct the shape of the eyes, give beauty a look, visually make the eyelashes thicker. I hope my secrets will help you master this makeup technique.
About my discovery – I already wrote Masterprecise liner from Maybelline. I just want to add that more than two months have passed since the review was written, and his line is still clear and saturated.
It is better to start with rods in the form of a marker, they are harder, they are much easier and more convenient to work with than with a brush. From the force of pressure depends on the thickness of the line.
Now in almost all cosmetic stores you can try the product before you buy it. It is advisable to try several options on the back of the brush, and after a while compare the results. It often happens that the eyeliner changes its color (for example, from black to gray). I always rub a little on the strokes. So you can see immediately which product is durable and which one is smeared.
The main colors of the liner are black, gray, brown, blue, green. I always use black, for brunettes this is the best option. Brown and gray are more suitable for women with lighter hair. And blue and green, as it seems to me, are more acceptable for festive makeup.
So that the line on the eyelid does not smudge and retain clarity, the skin should in no case be oily. Therefore, I always wait until the cream is completely absorbed into the skin.
The arrows keep much longer and better if the skin is slightly powdered or put on the shadows before applying it. Moreover, they should not have a bold texture.
Ideal for the base – a primer or a special base for the eyelids. Honestly, I didn’t buy this tool even once, when I received it as a gift when ordering for Victoria’s Secret, then a friend from the USA sent them a whole package. In any case, the primer, of course, is much better than dusting and shadows – with it the eyelid keeps dryness, and the arrow is clear, at least 8 hours.
If the shape of the eye needs correction, it is better to consult with a specialist once, in order to use this method later.
I have a standard task – to give the look expressiveness and thickness of the eyelashes. I begin to draw a line from the inner corner of the eye to the outer, gradually expanding it from the middle of the century. For the first attempts, you can put points on the place of the intended arrow, which then will need to be connected.
My arrow tip is always pointing up. Otherwise, it creates the impression of a sad look, like that of Pierrot. Do not go too far beyond the cut of the eye, 1-2 mm is enough, no more.
It is important to draw the arrow as close as possible to the lash line, as if painting over this space. With this application of eyelashes seems thicker. And if you leave the distance between the arrow and the eyelashes, the makeup will look at least sloppy.
It is important to give shooters to dry well, otherwise they will immediately print on the upper part of the eyelids. When applying you should avoid getting the liner on the eyelashes, otherwise there will be difficulties with applying mascara.
Arrows are not only for evening and festive makeup. For me, neat and thin lines are quite acceptable for everyday makeup. And lately, I have even thought about making a permanent make-up on my eyelids – anyway, every day I am painted the same way.
