Tightlining is a makeup technique that involves applying eyeliner to the upper waterline of your eyes. This technique creates a natural and subtle look that makes your lashes appear fuller and more defined. Tightlining is a great way to enhance your eyes without having to apply a lot of makeup, and it works well for both daytime and evening looks. The upper waterline is the thin strip of skin between your eyelashes and your eye. By applying eyeliner to this area, you can create the illusion of thicker lashes and a more defined eye shape. The technique is called “tightlining” because you are lining the tight space between your lashes and your eye.
How to tightline?
To tightline, you’ll need a waterproof or long-wear eyeliner pencil. Choose a shade that complements your eye color and skin tone. Start by gently pulling down your lower lash line and using the pencil to draw a thin line on the upper waterline. You can also use a small brush to apply the eyeliner if you prefer. Tightlining is especially effective for those with smaller or hooded eyes. It helps to open up the eyes and make them appear larger and more awake. For a more dramatic look, you can tightline your lower waterline as well. However, this may not be suitable for those with sensitive eyes. One important thing to keep in mind when tightlining is to use a waterproof or long-wear eyeliner. This will prevent the eyeliner from smudging or running throughout the day. It’s also important to clean your eyeliner pencil or brush regularly to prevent the buildup of bacteria.
