BEAUTY | Graphic Eyeliner

First got the idea to buy a set of adhesive eyeliner patches from Dior, ´Velvet Eyes´. But after visiting a few local make up stores that didn't carry this product my impatience took over and grabbed a kohl pencil, liquid eyeliner and a q-tip. I started out with my regular makeup; a bit of mascara and a little line close to the lashes. Then I made two dots as references before applying eyeliner. One right above the point where the iris starts. The other in the middle of the imaginary line between the corner of the eye and the end of the eyebrow. After that it's just a matter of connecting the dots, making the corners sharper with liquid eyeliner and fixing small mistakes with a q-tip.

The PvdH Journal said...

Oh this is just incredible! Despite being an artist myself I must admit that I am pretty rubbish at putting on any over complicated eye make up on (perhaps need more practice!)

You look gorgeous

Stunning! I quite like this diy approach.

Magnet said...

I LOVE this, it looks so good!! aah I want to try it myself.. but I'd probably fail, I'm so hopeless with all things make up.

Jo said...

absolutely epic! I've sighed over the dior way of doing eyeliner so many times, that this diy is just the nudge I needed to try it by myself.

Incognito said...

This is a really original way to put eye liner, I think I'll be trying this someday ! With your eyes and your hair color you make me think of some Marvel Comics Heroine, don't know why Poison Ivy is popping out of my mind eventhough she is redhaired and green eyed...

Amazing! I'm so going to try this, I'm hoping for the best, though, as I have one of those really hidden eyelids and I don't have a lot of room to do this, so I have no idea how it will turn out...but I'll try anyway! :)

I use this eyeliner fromBobbi brown India
and it truly is one of the best! I tried using the pen ones a while ago and although they are great at first, I find they dry out so quickly!
