It’s every bride’s dream to look her very best on her big day. With standout makeup products like your eyeliner, you just can’t go wrong. Applying the eyeliner is perhaps one of the trickiest makeup techniques that even professional makeup artists sometimes have trouble with. One wrong hand movement and a flick of the finger, your entire makeup could become a disaster.
If you’re going to do your makeup yourself on your wedding day, you need to be extra careful when applying your eyeliner. To make sure you apply it with perfection, keep a few trial sessions before the actual wedding day so you get more used to the look. But for the actual applying method, here are a few tips that can help you out.
Choose the right product
Liquid eyeliner is not everyone’s cup of tea, just like pencil eyeliner doesn’t make every woman’s eye makeup shine. Choosing what kind of eyeliner product suits your eyes isn’t a last minute job. You should be experimenting with all types way before your wedding day.
Some women find liquid eyeliner easier to apply but too shiny for the camera. Some might not even use an actual eyeliner product and go for an eye shadow-eyeliner technique instead. Gel or cake eyeliner, on the other hand, are less commonly used but are a lot more long lasting, pigmented and suit most skin and eye types.
Don’t forget your eye shape
So you want to make that dramatic winged eyeliner and look like Cleopatra? Bad news: not all of us can. The type of eyeliner style you apply greatly depends on the shape of your eyes. For the most common eye shape, almond eyes, almost every type of eyeliner style can suit. A thin stroke on the inner corners that turns thicker towards the outer corner is the signature almond eye look.
A relatively thin eyeliner stroke throughout with a thick wing at the edge often suits women with hooded eyes. Other eye types such as downturned, upturned and round eyes all have a unique shape on which a unique eyeliner style will look best. So find out what your eye shape is before choosing what eyeliner style you want to go for.
