How To: Tightline (Intermediate/Advanced Level)

We already went over the easy way to tightline eyes (lining the lower waterline, then blinking so the color transfers to the upper waterline). In this post, we’ll go over the more advanced way to tightline (lining both the upper and lower waterline) which is much tricker.

Why is it so tricky? Because the upper waterline is not as easily accessible as the lower waterline. In some cases, it’s not even visible unless you gently pull your lid and hold it in place by pressing down on the lashes. I know it sounds terrible but it’s really not. If you wear contact lenses, then you probably know what I’m talking about.

Step 1 – Hold the eyeliner in the hand you write with, i.e. if you are left-handed, you will hold the eyeliner in your left hand and vice versa. With your free hand, rest your palm on your forehead to keep your arm steady, and use your middle finger to gently open your eye in an upward rolling motion, and hold. After this step, your upper waterline should be visible and easily accessible.

Step 2 – Line your upper waterline. Next, let go of your eyelid (stop prying it open) and line your lower waterline, aaaand you’re done.
