Tutorial Tuesday: Eyeliner 5 Ways

Hello all!

It's been another busy week over here, and with a lack of time has come a lack of tutorial.  To keep it simple, today i'm going to do a guide on 5 different ways to wear your eyeliner.

I really hope you enjoy this as it's a different type of post but one that I think is super fun!

This first look is super easy, and great for days when you want to wear very minimal makeup.  All I've done here (on the left eye) is used an angled brush the place black eye shadow along the lashline as close to the lashes as possible.  Again, this is a very minimal look, it looks best with very light, neutral eyeshadows (or no eyeshadow at all).

This is another really easy look that is more on the neutral side.  I've used the Rimmel ScandalEyes Kohl Kajal in 003 Brown to run a thin line along the lashes, getting slightly thicker as it heads towards the outer corners.  I love this because the slight shimmer gives you a great awake look, and brown is less harsh than black.  I wear this kind of eyeliner a lot on the summer.  When applying, make sure your pencil is sharp! Otherwise the line will be too thick and it's a pain in the ass to fix!  This also looks great smudged out, and there is no need to wear eyeshadow if you don't want to!

Now for a classic, black winged liner.  This look is fantastic!  It's slightly more dramatic, and goes with every eyeshadow under the sun!  I wear this to work a lot because it makes me feel slightly less... gross?  I just think regular black winged liner is eternal and classy.  You can dress it up or down, it's great!

For this look, I find it easiest to use a felt-tipped liquid liner, such as the L'Oreal Lineur Intense.  It gives a lot of control to get right into the inner corners and make a perfect flick.  My advice for getting good winged liner is to practice! Everyone has different eye shapes, mine aren't even quite the same! Just fiddle around with it and see what looks best on you!

Speaking of winged liner, here's look #4, a copy-cat liner look.  This is easy as pie, just follow along the edge of your black winged liner with another colour (above are the Rimmel Kohl Kajals in Light Blue and Silver).  You may need to touch up the black, I usually do, but this just adds a little bit of interest.  The silver is particularly awesome for a night out.

The final look is definitely not for everyone.  This is a green eyeliner with gold shimmer (GOSH Golden Moss specifically).  In the picture on the top I've applied it to the one eye, thicker on the top and very thinly along the lower lashline.  To amp this up and take it from day to night, the bottom look has black liner on the top and bottom waterlines (Annabelle Smoothliner in Black).  Again, make sure your pencil is super sharp to do this, or else your line will be way too thick.

I hope this kind of tutorial is okay with you guys!  Does this count as a tutorial?!  It does now!
