Oh, my hooded lid women… I do know you possibly can really feel me on this. There are days when my higher lash liner seems completely…however then there are these different days when it doesn’t. 😬
And people days are baaaaad.
You understand how it’s. One minute, you’re making use of your liner, oblivious to the catastrophe about to strike. Subsequent factor you realize, your liner has taken over half your lid. In case you have hooded lids like I do, it additionally makes your eyes look smaller.
So, that’s what initially occurred with this explicit look right here. Began out, I used to be within the temper for black cat eyeliner, however I used to be speeding, and issues received out of hand shortly.
My liner was too thick, and the wings didn’t match. My eyes seemed teeny, tiny.
As a result of I didn’t have sufficient time to take away every thing and begin once more from scratch, I recalled the trick I’ve been utilizing these days with gentle pencil liner to make my lids look much less hooded, and I employed an identical approach to repair this mishap.
Right here’s what I did.
I dipped a flat angled brush into a glittery bronze eyeshadow, moist that brush head with a setting spray, and blended it immediately on high of the black liner from the internal nook to about three fourths of the way in which out.
Nicely, identical to how making use of a light-colored liner on the higher lash line opens up the attention, layering a bronze on high of black additionally makes lids look extra pronounced and bigger than they are surely.
Subsequent, I cleaned the comb I used, dipped it right into a darkish brown, and blended that on the outer nook of the black liner to melt it and create the phantasm of a little bit extra carry.
I didn’t totally recognize simply how a lot bigger it made my lids look till I received to Costco and began making an attempt on potential eyeglasses…
I took a pic of my face with out frames so I may examine it to pics of myself sporting among the new frames I used to be involved in (as a result of I’m nerdy like that), and once I noticed my make-up within the harsh overhead Costco lighting, I noticed — OH, SNAP! — this eye make-up was really working for me.
Yeah…I’m undoubtedly gonna do that once more, however, like, on goal. LOL! 🙂
