Now, as promised, a tutorial on an easy way to put on black eyeliner. And while the standard way of doing it takes a lot of practice, you can’t really fail with this one. The best thing about it is that you can do as thick or thin lines you want, and it will look flawless. A friend showed me this trick.
- a gel or liquid eyeliner (obviously, any color goes)
- a brush for applying (any eyeshadow or concealer brush, you don’t have to worry about it not being thin enough)
- a pair of scissors
- a piece of soft plastic. Here I’m using a bit of the packaging left from oranges.
Cut your plastic in two parts.
Cut out the shape of the “kitten flick” you want to achieve on your eyes. Cut through the both pieces of plastic at the same time. This way you’ll make sure the lines on your eyes are identical. This is usually my biggest problem when I apply eyeliner the traditional way. The lines on my both eyes look perfect, but totally different from each other!
I made two different types of lines (the first and the last picture of this post) to show you how you can vary the style of your flick. Now you know an easy way to put on black eyeliner. I hope this kitten flick with a stencil tutorial helps!
PS. I’ve been asked to do a swatch of Bronze green 155 by Mavala. Here I’m wearing it on my nails.
