Tight-light: A Natural Liner In-between your lashes

What is tight-liner? It is a liner, Black or Brown, that is placed in between your natural lashes.   Where the lashes are coming out of your skin is where you place the product.   It makes your lashes look longer and thicker.  It helps define your eye shape and sets you up for a finished and more professional liner application.

Applying Tight Liner

By applying a dark liner in between the roots of your lashes you are filling in any lighter skin.  This makes your lashes look like they are coming from a deeper depth.  Simply by using a gel liner and a flat headed brush you can wiggle in between the lashes and apply a liner right at the roots of you natural lashes.  Sounds complicated, but give it a shot!   Its just makeup so it will always wipe off!

 

 

What will you need?

How do apply the Tight Liner?
  • Pick up your product.
    • be sure to mainly focus on getting the product on the tips of the bristles
  • Go from underneath your lashes and wiggle and stamp the bristles in between the lashes and onto the skin
  • Then pull away
    • don’t try to drag the brush along the root line like you would when working above the lash line
    • Think of stamping in between those roots and connecting the line
  • Repeat connecting the lines across the lash line
  • Go from the most outer lash root to the inner corner so that you define your full length of your eye 

 

Please Note we are not applying on the water line, but in between the lashes.

Having just a tight liner and mascara can make a really soft and natural look.  If you decide to go dramatic with your eyes the tight liner will guide you as you are adding a regular liner or smoky liner.  That will be the next blog, how to add to the liner above the lash line/tight line!
