Proper use of an eyeliner is an important makeup feature that can help to enhance the shape of your eye and take an entire makeup look from basic to alluring. A wrongly applied eyeliner result is usually disastrous in more ways than one and that’s why we want to help you correct them with the mistakes listed below and corrections.
Problem: Creating Bold Looks With Uneven Lines
Solution: Always connect the dots! To nail that bold, fierce cat eye, all you have to do is draw 4-6 dots across your upper lash line and link them with a straight line. Remember to work from the inner corner of the eye and move outwards for more fluidity.
Problem: Gaps between Eyeliner and Upper Lash Line
Solution: Of course the gap is important. Eyeliner looks best when applied as close to the upper lash line as possible. You should not be able to see a sliver of your eyelid peep through. Fine an eyeliner with a fine tip point that can easily glide on with precision and fill in any gaps.
Problem: Trying to create the perfect wing
Solution: Don’t wing it! The perfect cat eye all boils down to the wing. It’s essential not to pull the eye as the final look will become jagged and asymmetrical. Rather than do that, tilt your head at a 30 degree angle and lightly draw an extended line to act as the base of the wing instead. From there, simply trace the line until the optimal thickness of the wing is achieved.
Solution: How you can fix this problem is to trace the lower lash line with dark eyeliner helps create an eye-opening effect, but if done incorrectly, crafts a tired, harsh look. The best way is to find creative ways to accentuate your bottom lash line by drawing whimsical dots and patterns to bring added detailed texture.
Problem: Eyeliner held incorrectly
Solution: Since it can be intimidating to create consistent razor thin lines, the recommendation is positioning the eyeliner correctly to help achieve redefined masterful lines. Start by holding the eyeliner at a 45 degree angle and draw small, precise strokes to trace the natural curve of the upper lash line.
