Eyeliner for Monolids
A few posts ago when I was reviewing my black pencil eyeliners, I mentioned that I would do an eyeliner tutorial. Eyeliner is one of the most important steps in my makeup routine and it really ties everything together in a look. Some people can forego eyeliner and still have a bright eyed effect but for my flat, monolids, I prefer lining my eyes to make them more defined. My eyelashes are not curled and I am not wearing mascara in these pictures so you can see my eyes better.
Eyeliner is probably one of the most "well known" types of makeup, meaning that most people know what eyeliner is (as opposed to face highlighters). However I think eyeliner is one of the most easy things that people can apply incorrectly or in a way that is unflattering. To each their own and by no means am I saying that my way is even a "good" way. It's my preferred method and a technique that I think many people with similar eye shapes can use. I have had many people tell me that I line my eyes unevenly or too thick. My eyes are different shapes and sizes because the fold differently, thus my lines will usually look uneven no matter how even I draw them. I prefer a thicker eye line on myself because a thin line would do nothing for my eyes. I rarely tightline or line my waterline because my eyes are sensitive and I usually end up with eye infections when I line those areas.
Enough of my blabbering, if you want to see how I do my eyeliner, check out the video below! :)
