If done well, wearing bold eyeliner as a fall 2014 makeup trend can actually look pretty amazing. But on the flip side, wearing bold eyeliner in the wrong way can turn out to be a makeup tragedy.
I think most of us went through the tragic eyeliner phase in middle school… but if you are still in that tragic stage while attempting to bust out a smoky eye with bold eyeliner, I am here to save you.
Two things to remember: 1} a little bit of eyeliner can go a very long way and 2} be purposeful when applying it. Don’t just slop it on your lash-line and hope for the best.
Now that you have those two tips in your makeup tool belt, let’s look at the fall 2014 makeup trend: bold eyeliner.
1} Apply a neutral eyeshadow shade on your lower eyelid and blend it into the contour of your eye. You can also sweep it right underneath your lower lash line.
2} Sweep a light shimmery shade right underneath your brow bone and into your tear-duct.
3} Next, use a black eyeliner and apply it really close to your upper and lower lash line, making sure to connect on the inside and outside corners.
4} With a black eyeshadow and an eyeliner brush, go over that line and soften it a bit.
5} Last, apply your mascara and some dewy-fresh face makeup that is soft in color.
