LESSON: GRAPHIC EYES


"Begin by curling the lashes and applying a light pencil liner to the lower inner rims of the eyes to open them out and make them look fresher"

"Take a black kohl pencil and apply a thick line to the upper lash line. Blink once and you’ll see the kohl imprinted on the eye socket. Extend the kohl up to this line and fill in the entire lid. No need for an eye base, as the kohl slides onto bare skin more effectively"

"Using the same kohl pencil, draw a thick black line just under the lower lashes. Don’t sharpen the pencil - it should be rounded so you can apply a thick line without dragging the skin. Connect the lower kohl line with that on the eyelid and blend out the color to form a flick"

"With a flat eye-shadow brush, press a layer of matte black eye shadow into the kohl on the lower lash line. Continue to blend the color out to the corner flick, extending the line out towards the temple"

"For the eyelid, take a soft blending brush and lightly sweep a layer of the matte black eye shadow across the entire lid to help seal and mattify the kohl. Blend right out to the corner flick gently to blur any hard edges"

" Equip yourself with a small angled eyeliner brush. Extend the line from the tear duct down towards the nose and taper it off. Then, outline the very bottom of the kohl line on the lower lash line and extend it out towards the temple in a straight line. Blot off any mistakes with a damp cotton bud"

RAYELLE - that's why I recommend using a light pencil to the lower inner rims so that it will open your eyes out ;)
