How-To: All About Eyeliner

Back Story:

Eyeliner was designed to give the illusion of fuller lashes, originally. Applying eye liner in a couple of techniques ensures this. Tight-liner and hidden liner. What’s the difference?

Tight-liner is to be applied on the outer upper lash line. It’s tight to the lash line, you can’t see it. 

 

Hidden-liner is to be applied on the top lash line in the inner part of your eye 

Pencil eye liner is great for smudging. It doesn’t last long.though. I don’t really use it as much. When I was younger, I would place my pencil eye liner into a flame. So light a candle. Leave the eye liner in the flame for a few seconds, apply. It dries so quickly. This creates an intense look. A little mixology. 

Bobbi Brown Long-Wear Gel Eyeliner C$31

Gel Liner, I use a lot, especially when creating a cat eye. Gel liner comes in a pot. With your eye liner brush, dip the tip of your brush in the pot. (See Makeup Tip below on what to do next). Apply your eye liner. 

 

Ben Nye Cake Eye Liner

Laura Mercier Tightline Cake Eye Liner C$31

With cake liner (the two that I absolutely love is from Ben Nye and Laura Mercier) you need to have a paper towel that is damp. Dip your brush into the damp paper towel, into the cake liner, wipe off the excess product – see Makeup Tip below for more info, then apply. It’s a nice alternative to the gel liner. I will use it to create cat eyes, or anything that is creative eye liner. You can do the same with gel liner.

Powder is nice for a natural long-lasting alternative. There is now eye liner on the market that is designed specifically for eye liner. There is even dual intensity, as well. This means you can have the eyeliner applied softly, so dry or intense, or so wet. You can use black eye shadow as your eyeliner if you don’t have any powder eye liner. For an intense look, take your eye liner brush and dip it into your eye shadow then into your damp paper towel. Remove excess product. Apply your eyeliner. Don’t mix water into your eye shadow unless it’s dual intense (to be used wet and dry)

 

Please note: I was taught on how to use liquid eyeliner, however I don’t use it on my clients. I was trained to use other eye liners instead. For example, gel, cake, pencil, cream. Liquid eyeliner is way too harsh and doesn’t add anything to the eyes. Gel delivers excellent intensity, so does cake liner. I want to be clear that I am not putting down liquid eye liner. It’s really your preference.

Makeup Tip: Always wipe off any excess product on a paper towel before applying. Begin with a thin layer. Build it if you want to.

How to: Do’s And Don’ts of Mature Makeup

When applying makeup on mature skin, one must be careful. It can either hide those fine line or accentuate them. No woman will want any of her fine lines to be seen up close. She will want them to be disguised.

 

EYES

DO: Applying eyeliner on the upper lash line. When applying eye liner only on the upper lash line keeps the appearance of fine lines or wrinkles at bay. When applying eye shadow, stick to neutral tones. Defining the crease is essential. So, a soft smokey eye is always the best solution. Or, a colour wash (eye shadow being applied on the eye lid only) using neutral tones.Keeping eye makeup clean is the best route.Neutral tones always look best. They are your best friend.

DON’T: Apply eyeliner on the bottom lash line. Sorry, ladies save it for the youngins. The reason is because, eye liner that is applied on the bottom of the lash line accentuates wrinkles, crows feet, fine lines, you name it, it’s being seen. BEsides, eye liner that is applied on the top and bottom lash line, has a way of making eye look tired and small. So, if you have medium size eyes, your eyes will look small. Small eyes will look even smaller. Traditional smokey eye, doesn’t have the greatest impact on mature skin. It actually accentuates any fine lines around the brow bone when incorporating black into your smokey eye. As well as, it just doesn’t add any greatness to the eye makeup. I want to say your eyes will look as though they are a bit closed, making it difficult to see your beautiful eyes. Save the traditional smokey eye for the young ladies. This doesn’t mean you cannot wear a smokey eye. It just means stick with the sister version, which is the softer (subtle) smokey eye using the brown palette.

 

Face

Foundation

BOBBI BROWN Nude Finish Tinted Moisturizer SPF 15 C$53

 

NARS Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturizer C$54

DO: Use foundation. A BB Cream or a tinted moisturizer is your best friend. It is light enough that will sit nicely on your face, without it sitting in between wrinkles and fine lines. It moisturizes, too.  With a BB Cream, you also have SPF benefits. These type of foundations can actually disguise any light fine lines when applied properly. It also adds radiance. 

DON’T: Use any foundation that heavy. Heavy foundations these days are light-weight, however they have a tendency to slip into your fine lines or wrinkles, accentuating them.

Concealer

DO: Conceal those imperfections with a cream concealer. A little bit of cream goes a long way. A little bit is all you need to conceal those imperfections. It also delivers moisture. If you don’t like cream, opt for a liquid concealer with anti-aging benefits.

Powder

Clarins Loose Powder C$47

ORIGINS All And Nothing Loose Powder C$35

DO: Using a light powder, which is a loose powder or setting powder is what you need to set the mkaeup. Setting the makeup is important if you want to keep the face makeup in place. Otherwise, it will separate and move around throughout the day. 

DON’T: Use anything heavy (compact, powder foundation, etc) It’s too heavy. It’ll sit in between the fine lines.

 

Blush

BECCA Luminous Blush in Snapdragon C$41

 

CLARINS Blush Prodige in Soft Peach C$32

DO: Always apply blush. As skin ages, skin becomes dull, which means it looses its radiance, it’s colour. You must bring the colour back into the complexion. Apply it with a light hand, so it’s subtle.

 

Lips

Smashbox Be Legendary C$23

 

LANCÔME L’Absolu Rouge Definition Lipstick C$37

DO: Use lipsticks that bring colour back to the lips, or simply put lipsticks that match the colour of your lips. Apply lip liner to avoid any bleeding or feathering. To make your lips appear fuller, use this makeup trick. Line your lips just outside your lip line. Fill it in with your lipstick. Normally, I apply lip liner last, so the lip makeup looks natural. Lighter colours, always give the illusion of fuller lips. 

DON’T: Use brights. Brights shrival up the lips, so they appear smaller. Use natural tones. Classic red or a blue-undertone in t he red; burgundy, wine, maroon, raspberry, etc), deep plums, medium pink; a coulour that gives to your lips. Nudes aren’t good. Keep the texture matte. If you want shine, opt for a creamy lipstick. It delivers the right amount of shine. Matte lipsticks these days, don’t dry out your lips. There are some, that have shea butter contents in them to maintain moisturized lips. Please, ladies, stay away from gloss. It only emphasizes the fine lines and/or wrinkles around the lip area.
