I love to tightline my eyes. (Tightlining is when you line the base of your top lashes. You do this by pushing the liner into the base of your upper lashes. So the liner isn't visible on the lid; instead, your lash base looks thicker. Tightlining is perfect for giving a thick lash illusion without the dramatic liner line on the lid. I should provide a picture, but this quick tip just came to me.) However, whenever I use a pencil liner, the liner sometimes smudges or runs. Luckily, the other day I picked up a very helpful makeup book, and I would like to share one the tips. The book is titled Makeup Makeovers: Expert secrets for stunning transformations by Robert Jones. Mr. Jones makes a simple recommendation of using eyeshadow instead of eyeliner to tightline.
This tip never occurred to me. Why? I don't know. I mean I use eyeshadow at eyeliner all the time, but I never thought it would work for tightlining. Well, let me tell you that today I used a black eyeshadow (by La Femme) to tightline, and I was seriously impressed. My lashes looked thick, there was no running, and I think my application was much more precise and accurate.
Has anyone else tried this method?
