Tightlining is often referred to as the greatest secret of Hollywood makeup. The point is that the manipulations performed seem to be invisible to the naked eye.

What is tightlining

Today, you will learn about the “tightlining” makeup technique and its benefits. To reproduce the effect, it is necessary to draw a line inside the eyelid, along the contour of the eyelash growth so that the eyeliner does not come into contact with the skin and is not very noticeable. This technique makes it possible to make the most natural makeup, which highlights the eyes. On the other hand, it gives the impression that there is no eyeliner at all.

Tightlining is usually used in everyday and daytime images. In addition to this technique, one can add familiar eyeliner strokes to create an evening makeup effect.

Application technique

Take a little mirror and look at it from the top, squinting down the sight. The most convenient thing to do is to use a flat, thin blending brush and regular mascara. Take some mascara from the brush, using any other convenient brush, and «print» it on the contour of the eyelash growth. There is no need to draw a line, as the risk of getting your face dirty and smearing the mascara all over your skin is high. Move gradually from the edge of the eye to the nose. Do not put on the eyeliner on the whole upper eyelid, leave the small tip of the corner of your eye without makeup.

While you are practicing and putting your hand in, take mascara. Only then you can move on to a pencil or an eyeliner. Tightlining presupposes a very thin line along the growth of the eyelashes. It is very important that the line is accurately drawn, otherwise the makeup may look sloppy. When you get used to it, it will not take you more than five minutes. Then you can use a very finely sharpened eye-pencil instead of a brush. It should be applied with a little bit of movement, slightly shading it.

Benefits of tightlining

The tightlining technique allows you to make the most natural makeup with a deep look. It seems as if there is no eyeliner on the eyes at all and visually they look a little larger. If you put some mascara on your lower lashes or apply an eyeliner on the upper eyelids, you will get a great version of evening makeup.

At the end of the day, do not forget to remove the eyeliner carefully, preferably with oil or a two-phase product to remove all the makeup from the skin accurately.
