I am obsessed with tight lining, an eyeliner technique that gives the effect of a super full lash line. I recently discovered this new secret weapon, which makes filling in your lash line between lashes and lining the underside of lashes (aka tight lining) super easy, even for the cosmetically challenged.
Here’s a step-by-step guide so you, too, can rock this look!
Start with bare lids. (Ignore all my freckley spots. Hmm… Believe I see an IPL post opportunity in my future).
First, I fill in brows and apply eyeshadow. I like Smashbox Brow Tech to Go from Sephora in “Taupe.” Next, I dab on a little Smashbox Limitless 15-hour wear cream shadow. I used their “Icon” color here, but there are lots of other great colors, too. (You can check them out here.) Then, I cover entire lid with a sweep of Stila eye shadow. I used “Wheat,” but “Kitten” is nice, too. Then I filled in my crease with “Golightly,” a shimmering metallic bronze. You can choose from 44 shades of Stilla shadows.
Ok, now we are ready to begin applying liner. My secret weapon is the 3 Way lining tool by Too Faced. I find this version much easier to use than traditional liners.
I went a little heavier on the upper lid, but the lash lining tool really allows you to go as thin or thick as you would like. It is also easy to do a little flip at the outer edge for a cat eye effect, if you so desire.
Hope you enjoyed this little tutorial!
