Graphic Eyeliner

Sunday, September 4, 2011

I just came across this while doing some "research"online. I think they're gorgeous, and worth a try. especially the one with double winged tips! <3 Hope you like! :)

HOW-TO Before applying liner, Lobell dusted translucent powder over Heard's lids, then pulled her eyelid up toward the temple to hold skin taut. Using a pointed felt-tip eyeliner pen, she drew a thick streak along the upper lash lines, flicked the line upward just past the outer corners, and dragged the pen inward across the crease. Next, she filled in the open square with pencil and topped the wing off with matte gel eyeliner. "The muted color tones down the intensity and makes it look fresh," says Lobell, who again used a pointed cotton swab to polish up the lines.

HOW-TO Using a stiff pointed brush, Lobell traced Heard's upper and lower lash lines with a jet-black liquid, extending the lines 1/4 inch past the outer corners of her eyes (leaving a space in between). "If you go out further, you'll have a Black Swan moment," she warns. "And make sure the lines are straight—not flared up—almost like an equal sign." To clean up imperfections, Lobell used a pointed cotton swab dipped in eye-makeup remover.

These are very cool, I am not sure if I would be able to do them on myself even with following instructions it never seems to come out the same lol.

Thank you for sharing.
