4 Steps to So Sexy
1Line the Top Starting at the inner corner of the eye, glide the liner along the lid to the end of the lash line. “Keep the liner thin at the tear ducts and a bit thicker as you get closer to the outer corners,” says Sesnek. This helps create an even base for the flick.
2Create the Flick Begin drawing at the outer corner of the eye and swoop up in a slight curve, toward the brow’s tail. Avoid pulling skin taut since as soon as you let go, the line will look crooked. Dab any imperfections with a cotton swab dipped in makeup remover.
3Line the Lower Lid Form a curved-down V by connecting the beginning of the bottom line with the beginning of the top line at the tear duct. Then run liner along the waterline until the ends meet in the outer corner. Drawing the line above the lash helps keep it from smudging.
4Finish With Mascara For added oomph, apply a coat of mascara to only the top lashes with a skinny brush (like NYX The Skinny Mascara, $7, nyxcomsetics.com). The thinner brush helps thwart clumping while avoiding the bottom lashes allows the liner to really stand out.
