Fully Rimmed Eyeliner

Posted: July 24, 2010 in Makeup Tips, Tutorials

The first time I tried rimming my entire eye with black eyeliner was… pathetic.  After seeing Dara’s makeup in 2NE1’s Fire mv, let’s just say I got a little excited.  So, upon second attempt, I’ve come up with a more thoughtful method for pulling this thing off.  If you’re a beginner and have never attempted something like this, read on!

STEP ONE (yellow) – So, starting out, you’re gonna want to line your waterline using a cream or pencil eyeliner.  If you’re feeing ambitious you can tightline all the way around.  As you can see, I have not.

STEP TWO (pink) –  Next, make a sharp, nearly vertical line up from the corner of your eye for the basis of your wing.  With my eyes I usually make my wing quite steep, but I recommend experimenting with your eye shape if you’re inexperienced with winging your eyeliner.  After laying down this line, you’re gonna want to bridge it across into your basic eyeliner.  I usually use a cream eyeliner for this step.

STEP THREE (turquoise) –  So for the last part I take my Kat Von D tattoo eyeliner because the finishing touches require an eyeliner that is precise and easy to control.  In this last step I’m just fleshing out some of the shapes that I’ve created on the outer and inner corners.  It always helps to have a q-tip on hand for cleanup.

Luscious Liquid Lipstick

I really like the shower head applicator.  The color distributes evenly and with precision.  Only downside is that there doesn’t seem to be much product.  This color is a warm strawberry red, which looks natural and healthy looking.  The formula is pretty sheer, so it’s basically like a lip gloss but not as sticky.  I love the minty smell and although the lasting power isn’t great, the lipstick is moisturizing.  I would definitely repurchase this in different colors.
