Eye liner is a cosmetic used to define the eyes. It is applied around the contours of the eye to create a variety of aesthetic illusions. Although primarily aimed at females, it has broadened its appeal to the male market, known commonly by the portmanteau guyliner. Eyeliner was first used in Ancient Egypt and Mesopotamia as a dark black line around the eyes. It was subsequently often used by Arab women. In the 1960s, liquid eyeliner was used to create thick black and white lines around the eyes in the makeup fashion associated with designers like Mary Quant.
Tips for applying eye liner effectively. First apply eye shadow , then move on to apply eyeliner. If you have never applied liner before and feel a bit nervous, try this technique. Sit down at a table in a good light with a mirror. Take your good eyeliner in your hand and rest your elbow on the table to keep your arm and hand steady. You can also give yourself extra support by resting your little finger on your cheek.
For perfect angle of application, titling the head backward while bringing the eyes to a half-open state is important. Then slowly draw an outline across your upper lid from the inside corner to the outside corner of your eyes. When using liquid eye liner, give time for it to dry by not opening your eye completely as the color may spread into and outside the eyes. Smudging the line with your brush, a cotton swab or finger helps in softening the looks of the eyeliner. You can line the lower lids similarly by gliding from outside to inward, making the lines at the outside corner appear outside than inside. Liquid liner should be applied in a smooth stroke.
Eyeliner is one of the most important cosmetics and can give you a dramatic look without much time or effort. Whether you choose a soft line or a dramatic stroke, you can embellish the windows to your soul by spending just a few minutes in front of a mirror with an eyeliner pencil.
