All About Eyes: The Tightliner Technique
Earlier this year, I mentioned one of my favorite eyeliner techniques using a flat eyeliner brush with a gel or liquid liner to create a very thin or tight line on your lashline. The “tightline” is a fabulous technique for individuals who want to naturally enhance their lashes.
I use Laura Mercier’s flat liner brush with Bleu Marine and it stays on great and looks fabulous. If you have thin or sparse lashes this is an awesome way to define your eyes and make your lashes look thicker!
“with my Laura Mercier’s Flat Liner Brush I dot Bleu Marine eye liner above and below the lashes, to thicken my lash line and add some Oomph! I think it turned out pretty cool, imho! The brush in this position probably makes you cringe, and you need to be careful with it. This liner technique just needs a steady hand and some practice.”
An excellent video to help demonstrate how to apply the tight eyeliner or “tightliner” technique in detail is found at: http://www.jsonline.com/story/index.aspx?id=487834.
Kate from Megsmakeup.com mentioned that a thin eyeliner, like Tarte’s emphasEYES (that comes in chocolate, plum, green or black) is another way to create the tightline look.
No matter which eyeliner you choose, the tightliner technique is something you must try!
