Who doesn’t love an on-point eyeliner look? From the classic and sexy cat eye to the more modern, sassy and colorful looks, we all love them! Isn’t it fascinating how a thin line on your eyelids can completely change your entire look? It can make your eyes bigger, smaller, longer, depending on the shape you choose. However, it’s not a secret that doing your eyeliner right is often a big struggle. Even the most makeup-obsessed of us stop to wonder whether or not they are doing this right. This is why, in this article, we will talk about frequent eyeliner mistakes that everyone is probably making.
Apart from this, we will also offer you solutions on how to stop doing these mistakes again. The trick with eyeliner is that if you are not able to do it right, better avoid doing it at all! It can look horrible and unflattering, and nobody wants that. However, once you learn how to do it correctly, a new range of possibilities will become available to you, as eyeliner can be mixed in various looks. So, here are some eyeliner mistakes that you are probably doing and how to fix them. Enjoy!
1. You’re not getting close enough to the lash line!
This is the most frequent mistake that people are making when applying eyeliner. Yes, it can be difficult to get so close to the lash line, but you need to try. Most of the times, that line will look like it cuts the eyelid in a weird shape and you won’t get the desired result. So, to do this correctly, you need to close your eye and position the tip of your eyeliner as close as possible to the lash line. This will make your lashes look fuller and thicker and won’t leave any weird gaps.
2. You angle your line down!
This is another big mistake that unfortunately, many people are making. When you want to do a cat eye, the whole point is to position your line upwards to get that feline and mysterious look. However, many people are either drawing a straight line or worse, one that is angled down. This only makes your eye “fall,” drags it down, and even makes you look tired. You can easily solve this by taking a Q-tip with makeup remover and wiping the end of the line so that it goes up. Even if your line is too long, at least it will be a cat eye and not a tired eye.
3. You don’t take your time!
The rule is that if you don’t have time to do it, better avoid doing it! Eyeliner takes some time to be done perfectly, and in the morning, when you are in a rush, this can be a big no-no! So, do not do your eyeliner when you’re in a hurry or worse, in a moving vehicle, in traffic! Nobody wants a zig-zag cat eye unless it’s intended to look that way!
