Glitter "Border" Liner for the Holidays!

Hello beauties!! The holidays are approaching faster than ever this year, and I'm whipping out my glitter pots & liners in anticipation. Today, I'm bringing back my "Border" liner from last year aka a creative eyeliner look that utilizes an outline technique. This look is super edgy and does require a bit of practice and a steady hand, however, it is easier than a smokey eye and more unique than a glitter shadow look. I hope you try it for yourself and see what I mean!

This thick liner look is perfect for Asian eyes, monolids and/or eye shapes with a smaller lid space.

Glitter "Border" Liner Outliner Eyeliner Tutorial:
  1. Apply Eye Shadow Base all over the lid, concentrating on the movable lid and corners. Using a fluffy eyeshadow brush, apply a wash of Vanilla & Creme Fresh eyeshadows from the lash line to the brow. Applying this light mixture will give the liner more contrast and pop and will even out any skin tone imperfections.
  2. Using a fine detailing brush, pick up some Forbidden eyeshadow and mix it with a couple of drops of setting spray like 10-Years Younger to create a liquid liner consistency. Paint a thick winged line across the lid. ASIAN EYES TIP: The width of your liner should come up to your natural crease (fold), like in my case.
  3. Paint a thin line with Noir liquid liner keeping close to the lashes.
  4. Apply a generous coat of Gold Digger glitter liner on top of the Forbidden eyeshadow, allow a few seconds for it to dry and add another coat if necessary.
  5. Paint a third line above the glitter, keeping parallel to the lash line and tapering at the inner and outer corner. This step completes the "Border" or outline of your glitter liner. ASIAN EYES TIP: Place this third line directly above your fold, but paint it slightly thicker, as it will diminish once you open your eyes.
  6. Curl your lashes, add mascara and falsies. House of Lashes Pixie Luxe lashes are perfect for this look because they're not heavy and don't cover up the glitter.
