#BGTutorial: Natural Looking Eyeliner

We show you how

1 17 2012

Ever feel like your eyes need a little, ahem, help? Nothing as intense as sultry, smoky lids or sharply winged liner….just a little “extra help”. Today we teach you how to line your eyes in a way that is soft, natural, and barely detectable but makes a world of difference. Follow along to learn our Beauty Girl’s favorite liner trick!

 

 

 

Supplies

 Guerlain Khol Kajal * Le 2 de Guerlain

 

This one’s super simple, girls. We’re going to line our upper and lower lash line at the same time. Yes, simultaneously!

- Hold Guerlain Khol Kajal parallel to your eye.

Close eye around the khol…I promise, this won’t hurt a bit.

- Next, run Guerlain Khol Kajal from one end of eye to the other. Personally, I like to give a few extra runs at the outer corners to create a bit more intensity.

- After running the Guerlain Khol Kajal along your eye, eye should look like this. Notice the eye on the left appears softly framed.

- To give the whole look a super natural feel, run your ring finger across the line to smudge the line just a bit.

- Frame the look with mascara on top and bottom lashes. We’re using one of our favs — Le 2 de Guerlain.

- Voila! Here’s our final look! Easy, natural looking liner. In the before/after side-by-side shot, note that the lined eyes appear softly rimmed and vibrant.

Parting Wisdom:

On choosing your liner shade – While “black” is a classic, go-to shade and works well for most complexions, it’s fun to veer off the path and try other options. We suggest:

Fair skin tone: Pewter, Soft Gray, and Taupe

Medium skin tone: Espresso, Charcoal, and Aubergine

Dark skin tone: Mahogany, Navy, and rich jewel-tones like Emerald, Sapphire, and Amethyst.
