Good morning Dolls…..
How are you doing? I’m free this morning, so i decided to do a blog post. Thank God Dindu and Mish are at school, so i have some peace and quiet. However, i have Zuri with me, and she’s just an easy baby….bless her! She doesn’t cry unnecessarily, and as long as she has a full tummy and a dry diaper on, she’ll be content to just lie down beside me rolling, making faces, playing, blabbering or chewing her hands.
If the other two were here, it woulda been a different story. I would have been constantly interrupted by them..
“Mummy, can i talk?”
I nod absent-mindedly
“Dindu ate my sausage”
“Mummy, acho’m lollipop” (Mummy i want lollipop) *She's making an attempt to speak igbo small small…yaaaay!*
“Mummy, Mish is pouring water on the floor!”
Bottom-line is…i would not blog in peace! So, i thank tha Lord for this morning.
So at the end of yesterday’s post, i mentioned a winged eyeliner pictorial. Naomi one of my contacts on BBM requested this pictorial, and i promised her that i would see what i can do about it. Yesterday, i did something abourrrit, and i’ll try to make this as detailed as possible.
This pictorial was achieved using just my Zaron gel eyeliner in 'Jazz' and a brush. The pointy brush i like to use to apply my gel liner has become flared, so its no longer 'werking'....i found another brush which is doing the job well .
I used a matte eyeshadow which is almost my skintone all over my eyelids, and i didn’t contour the outer corner of my eyes just so you can see the outline of the winged eyeliner clearly.
Before we start, i’ll like you to note the following…
· The eyeliner should start very thin (in the inner corner of the eyes) and then increase in thickness as you draw it outwards.
· You should draw it as close to the lash line as possible, there shouldn’t be visible flesh-gaps.
· You don’t have to draw a straight line all the way out….it’s ok to draw connecting lines using short strokes….just make sure the line is straight and not rough.
· If you need to stretch out the skin by pulling the corner of your eye in order to be able to draw a straight line, you can do so.
· You should have a steady hand….hold your breath if you have to.
· You can keep your eye open or closed, depends on what works for you *i keep mine open*.
So in this pictorial, i first drew an outline and then filled it in. This isn’t how i do mine, but i had to do it this way to make it easier for beginners who don’t know how to draw it at all.
‘Ere we go………
|Note how the line is connected to my waterline|
So first, i drew a line at the edge of my eyeball, slanting it upwards….that is the wing *You can make yours longer if you wish, depending on how dramatic you want your winged eyeliner to be*.
Next, i drew the upper outline from the inner corner of the eyes and upwards to join the first line i drew on the edge of the eyes *The wing should be sharp*.
And then i started filling it in from the inner corner. Remember that the line you draw should start thin and then increase in thickness as you draw it out *thank you*
|You can make your eyeliner as thick as you want, but please, if you have small eyelids or hooded eyes, please draw a thin eyeliner. Because if you make it thick, it would cover most of your eyeshadow.|
That’s it! Pretty simple!
Like every other part of makeup, you need to practice it till you are perfect. You are also free to rock any color you like!
So glad i could help…..If you have any questions, please leave a comment.
