Eyeliner Tips for Beginners
- Choosing the right color - To get the most natural look for your eyeliner stick with a color that matches your eye brows. Go with brown eyeliner if you have blonde / brown hair. Black liner if you have dark brown to black hair.
To give a fun and bold look try the gel liner or Sugar Plum Pencil Liner.
- Soften the lines- The eyeliner takes a minute to dry and set on your skin so take advantage of it. If you get a little crazy with your eyeliner you can gently smudge the line to soften and blend it into submission. Do this right away before the liner sets. Have q-tips ready to fix any mistakes or thick lines.
- Make Messy Lines - If you wait too long to smudge them or just got really out of control with your eyeliner -- it's okay! Practice makes perfect and don't be scared to make messy lines. Have some cleansing oil on hand, to clean up the lines and either start over, or using a q-tip take some of your cleansing oil and thin the eyeliner out.
- Apply between the lashes for a natural look - If you don't like the intensity of a eye liner and want a more natural looks, apply your liner from underneath your lashes, in between each lash to give a fuller and darker lash look-- without the large line. If you feel like you got too far away from lashes just go back over your liner and get closer.
- Apply under & over eye shadow - To help set your eyeliner apply before you put on any eye shadow. Then once you apply eye shadow go over your line one more time for a flawless bold line.
- Choosing the right eyeliner - For a more natural, softer look try the Pencil Eyeliner. For a bolder look try the gel liner. Both are suitable for beginners.
- For a more dramatic look - Moody Mascara is the ultimate organic and natural lash mascara because you can apply one layer for natural looking lashes or allow to dry and reapply for an even more dramatic look. Allow to dry 1-2 minutes in between layers.
- Don't Pump - Pumping your wand in and out of your mascara tube pumps air into the bottle, drying your mascara out. Your mascara tube and wand are meant to give you the perfect amount of mascara on the brush for each application.
- Blinking Allowed - For some of us, not blinking is the hardest part when applying mascara. If that's you then use it to your advantage and blink as you apply starting at the base of your lashes and gently moving it up to the tips as you slowly blink.
- Mistakes Happen - If you end up with mascara all over- don't fear. Just grab a qtip and makeup remover and fix your goofs.
