Hello Everybody! We are back again with Liner Week: Look Two! We wanted to bring you as many articles about liner as possible because, let’s be honest, there’s so much to know! So without further ado, here is Liner Week: Look Two!
When Mollie starts her liner, she starts drawing the line in the center of the eye towards the tail of the brow. This technique is an easy way to determine your eye shape and what kind of liner you will be doing. By doing this part first, you will be able to see how much lid space you have! If you don’t have a lot of lid space you will know because your line will be smaller. If you try to draw a large line on a small lid space, it will disappear into your crease when you open your eyes. It is the same concept with large lid space, if you have a large lid, you can get away with a larger line and it will still be visible when you open your eyes.
It is very important to keep the liner looking fluid- you don’t want a tiny flick with a large liner on the lid, or a tiny liner on your eye and a large flick. We always want our liner to be consistent and to flow. That is why Mollie does the liner on the lid first, that way she knows how large to make my flick based on the eye shape.
Mollie does the same technique that Andie talks about in the Liner Week Look One! She likes to make the little tick marks on the ends of the eye and make a triangle to connect to the liner and fill it in! She doesn’t recommend pulling too much on the eye area- it can cause premature aging and fine lines to that area. Always finish off your look with mascara!
Any kind of liner will do for this kind of look. Pencil liner can be a bit trickier so Mollie sticks to gel liner or liquid liner to get more precise lines. In our looks this week Andie and Mollie both used gel liner and a small liner brush. It is so easy to get the point on the end with a small brush.
We still have another post coming out this week! As if we couldn’t get enough liner! Stay tuned!
