In a lot of my makeup tutorials I use a really easy technique for getting a soft eyeliner which takes a maximum of 30 seconds to get perfect. This techinque can also be used for a simple and pretty daytime look whenever you want to use neutral colours or a pop of fresh colour to compliment your eye colour.
1. As always we start with priming our eyelid to make sure that the makeup will last all day. Make sure you get some on the outer corner as well if you want a winged eyeliner like Angelina Jolie. I’ve used Urban Decay Primer Potion.
2. Get your favorite gel liner and line your lash line. You can choose if you want it to end in the outer corner of if you want a little wing. If you want to wing it a little, make sure it’s at an angle with the outer corner of your eye and the end of the eyebrow. The great thing about this technique is that it does not need to be perfect, but do it fast so that it won’t dry before you get the chance to smudge it. I’ve used Bobbi Brown Black Ink with a E05 brush from Sigma.
3. Take whatever colour you want your line to be on a small brush and smudge out the liner with the eye shadow. You can use brown or black for a neutral look, or go for a colour that will compliment your eye colour. Since I have brown eyes I like to use green which brings out my brown eyes. I’ve used Humid from Mac with a E20 brush from Sigma.
4. …and apply mascara. How easy was that? :)
