This week, Makeup Gourmet Chris Scott, continues his new series of how-to makeup video tutorials. Lash Filler.
To capture the most authentic shape of every eye.
Regardless of age, the lash line (the line where your
eyelashes either grow or use to grow) captures
absolutely the true shape of the eye. Even as skin
matures and the skin around the eye may change
dramatically, the lash line shape remains intact.
By enhancing the lash line, the eye shape retains
its eternal (youthful) shape and is the most natural looking shape to the observer.
This technique is the truest way to capture the natural shape of every eye.
It is best to use waterproof/non-liquid eye liner for this step. Waterproof so it doesn’t run and nonliquid because the slow-drying nature of a liquid liner doesn’t lend itself well to this technique. The preferred liner is waterproof gel eye liner with a brush or a high quality waterproof pencil.
HOW TO APPLY EYE LINER THAT LOOKS GREAT AND STAYS ON
- Eye Liner Brush: Mini Detail
- Face with a Heart: Mastering Authentic Beauty Makeup – Paperback
- Quick Dry Brush Cleaner: 3 sizes
Note: This series of video tutorials is organized in a specific order of application. It is not necessary to do every step when you do your makeup but I do suggest you follow the order of the videos and skip the steps that don’t apply to you.
