I have to admit, there are days when I like looking like a doll. And there are days I like looking super oriental. I think I’ve resolved to myself that cosmetic surgery will forever be beyond me (and my mother!) so I try to be creative by thinking of ways for my look to match my mood using makeup!
Today, I’ll be showing you 5 looks you can try using your eyeliner (or matte black eyeshadow for an easier time)
Take a look!
What you’ll need:
- black eyeliner (pencil is easiest to use, then gel, then liquid. Personally, I prefer using a wet eyeliner brush and a matte black eyeshadow! It’s less messy and more smudge-proof too!)
1.) The Arch
This is the simplest look I’m sure everyone does! Extend it just a wee bit longer than your eye if you want slimmer looking eyes. Just trace your upper lash line and see your eyes expand O_O This is versatile eyelining trick is perfect for any look!
2.) The Full Dolly
Outline your entire eye with your black eyeliner, making sure to thicken the line on the outer edges of the eye. Make sure to keep your the edges rounded for a more doll-like effect.
3.) The Half Dolly
This is just a variation of the full dolly. The only difference is that you only outline until the outer half of the lower lash line. Do this if you want to have less intense doll eyes.
4.) The Slanted Cat
My favorite! Outline the eyes in such a way that it the line goes from thicker to thinner from the outer edges to the inner corners. If you want to have a flirty look to your makeup, try this!
5.) The Antelope
lol! Doesn’t the shape of the outline look like an antelope? Anyway! For this look, be sure to outline only from the inner corner to the middle part of the bottom lash line. (Skip the outer edges of the bottom lash line for this one!) This is a nice look for when you want your eyes to look cute and small.
