I love a sleek and clean cat eye liner look, but sometimes it’s fun to switch up your makeup look, and so this week I wanted to focus on fun ways to emphasize the lower lash line. The Fashion Week runways were full of cool under eye makeup looks, so here are a few to try this season.
- Bold Liner: This is a very dramatic look but fun to try. Apply a light pink shadow to the eye lid. Then apply a line of black liner to the entire lower lash line. This has the opposite effect of enlarging your eyes by applying a white liner to the inner water line of your eye, and does actually make your eyes look smaller, so you can choose a lighter colored liner and apply a thinner line to tone down the harshness and prevent your eyes looking smaller. If you want you can go full on bold with a thick line on the lid, too. Like my look with the bangs on the second pic down from the right! Then smudge both lines to create an intense and dramatic look.
- Colored liner: The holidays are coming up, so you can get festive with your makeup! Try using a fun gold or shimmery liner on your lower lash line. It will draw attention to your eyes and everyone will be saying how fab your eyes look!
- Smudged grungy liner: I’ve seen this a lot on the runways. Create an imperfect, smudgy look by applying your black liner to the lower lash line and smudging with a smudge brush (some eyeliners come with these attached) or even use your fingers for an even messier look. Depends on your preference! Then go over the line closest to your eye with the black eyeliner to define the line, leaving the smudged area below it.
