12 Liner Looks in 7 Minutes
As an extension of having realised that I have been doing my makeup in the same few variations for as long as I've been an adult, I continue on my mission to expand my repertoire. I found Julia Graf on YouTube this week, and her succinct, well-narrated videos really give a girl a lot to think about. Will I use all of these techniques in the real world? Probably not, but like with any new discipline, it's more about learning what is possible and the techniques behind it. Enjoy.
I plopped-in a pair of colour contacts for the exercise, just for fun (sometimes for nights out I like to use them as an accessory). Since we're dealing with some extreme looks here, I figured what the heck. These I believe are Freshlook Gemstone Green, in case you like to play around with these things as I do.
When it was my turn to turn my hand at some of these eyeliner looks, here is what I learned.
- I completely suck at liquid eyeliner and always will
- I stopped lining my "waterline" in 1987. Perhaps I need to start again, I like the look
- After all of this work, my favourite look is still and will always be the smoky eye.
- I'm inherently lazy, and out of all of these looks, will probably only use the smoky eye, the straight line, and the feline. And maybe a modified sixties flick. Maybe.
All things told, it was a fun way to spend a bit of time on a rainy afternoon, and I did learn a little something about what goes behind the looks you see in photo shoots. Might come in handy some day, who knows?
