Take note and create the perfect graphic eyeliner with Aitor Cuní, training & education manager at Rimmel London:
Performing an eyeliner is not an easy task. The most relevant thing in a multicolored eyeliner look is the choice of waterproof products that guarantee maximum resistance when creating graphic shapes.
· To create graphic eyeliners we can rely on our technical qualities and pulse to create precise shapes with regular lines or opt for a very effective homemade trick, use adhesive tape that allows us to define the shape and in this way we will create very precise shapes without overflowing. Later we will remove the heat to enjoy an incredible result.
· A very effective trick is to use cotton swabs to clean or remove excesses and define shapes. Thus fear is lost in execution.
· Another tip is not to distort the look with eyeliners that are very exaggerated or out of area, as they can deform our face. It is very important to design looking with perspective and looking at how it looks from a distance.
· Designing with the eye closed and opening to see the result is essential.
· It is important to take into account the grooves and volumes. We must work in firm areas or else the eyeliner could deform or ‘sink’.
