In my Estee Lauder Pure Color Eye Shadow Quad Review article, Parita had commented that I should do a tutorial on eyeliner application. So, here it is! : ) My favourite part of makeup has always been eye makeup and especially the eyeliner. I love learning new techniques of it, the thing upon which I must have spent the most time has to be practicing various eyeliner looks. Here, I present an intense Arabic eyeliner look that I usually wear for parties, weddings, etc or if the rest of the face is left bare, one could rock it even casually. It’s fairly easy, just a few runs and one would get the hang of it, I feel. Let’s get it started!
Products That I Have Used for Tutorial:
- Lakme Insta Eyeliner – In liquid eyeliner, I’m yet to come across one that is better than this. The brush works very well in applying the thinnest of lines possible or filling up larger areas as well. You can use any eyeliner that you are the most comfortable using, be it a felt-tip pen style or a thin angular brush.
- Vega Eye Liner Brush – or any brush eyeliner that is very thin, fairly stiff, to unable tiny, sharp and defined edges.
- Florelle Kajal Pencil – It is the darkest eye pencil that I have ever seen. You can use your favourite blackest black pencil.
- Estee Lauder Magnascopic Mascara
First, finish off your concealer, eye shadow routine.
Apply a very dark eye pencil on your upper and lower line. Doing this will help you define your corners and will guide the eyeliner application, as in where to start and end your eyeliner.
Apply the thinnest possible line on your upper eyelid as close to lashes as you possibly can. No fancy flicks or wings need, just outline the upper shape.
Make a line from the upper inner to outer corner by making an arch. This arch can be as low or as high as you desire, but keep in mind that you may need to extend its width further later, so don’t make too high of an arch. Use your defined corners to understand where to start and finish your arc.
Fill in the space created by the arch.
Repeat the same as in Step 4, but for your lower lash line, again keep in mind to not make an arch that is too wise as you may need to extend this later.
Make sure you connect the lower arc’s end to the upper lash line’s liner.
As you may have guessed, fill in the lower arch.
Take a tiny, stiff eyeliner brush that will let you make the sharpest of lines. Dip it in your eyeliner and make sure you use the edges of your bottle to make the tip of the brush as pointed as you can (no clue why the eyeliner is appearing so grey in this image!)
Extend the upper inner corners liner you drew on, so that the arc’s slope that you created is further extended.
It would look something like this:
Repeat the same method for the lower inner corner.
Here, you may need to further extend the width of the lower arc to make sure that the line created at the inner corner extends perfectly.
Fill in the inner triangle and any gaps created due to any extensions, in both upper and lower lines.
Extend the lower outer corner’s line upwards; keeping the mind the shape you want your “wing” to have.
With a slightly curved line, join the extended corner to the upper arc.
Fill the gap created and if needed i.e., if you want a further winged cat-eye, then repeat step 14 and 15.
Fill in any gaps and to have a finer flick-line at the end of your wing, just lightly flick your brush outwards; with very little product on it and that’s it, curl your eye lashes, apply your favourite mascara and you’re done!!: )
I hope you all liked it! : ))
