How To Tightline Your Eyes... Without Poking One Out, That Is

May 27, 2016 by India Unger-Harquail

Let’s face it–false eyelashes are a total pain. But if you aren’t blessed with Kardashian lashes, it can be hard to get the look of abundant, dark lashes without serious effort. That’s where tightlining comes in. When you tightline, the goal is to darken the skin at the base of your top eyelashes to make them appear thicker and fuller. This technique will also make your eyes appear bigger.

Sound like just what you need? Here’s how to tightline like a pro:

1. Choose the right pencil. When you tightline, you should use a waterproof pencil eyeliner like tarte’s Lights, Camera, Lashes close-up liner or a damp eyeshadow on a thin brush like Laura Mercier’s Flat Eye Liner Brush. Gel liners aren’t a good idea, because they often smear, or worse, end up in your eye.

2. Select the right color. The eyeliner or eyeshadow you choose should be several shades darker than your lashes, if not black.

3. Curl first. Start by curling your eyelashes with an eyelash curler. This will lift the roots of your eyelashes and make the base more accessible.

4. Line your eyes. Now you’re ready to start tightlining. Use a Q-tip, the back of a makeup brush or your finger to lift your eyelid up so that the skin underneath the lashes is accessible. Fill in the gaps in your lash line by running the eyeliner over the base of your lashes and the skin beneath them. If you’re using eyeshadow, dab your brush at the base of your lashes. You should fill in the entire upper lash line, ending where your lashes taper off in the inner corner of your eyes.

As for when to tightline, you can either do this before or after doing your eyeshadow and mascara, depending on your personal preference.
