If you aren’t familiar, tightlining is the act of lining your upper waterline - the fleshy pink part on the underneath side of the lash line. I’m using one of my favorite eyeliner shades, "Black Cocoa” by Pixi Beauty in these photos. It’s the perfect balance between brown + black shade. This technique is not really making the lashes look longer but it is an easy foolproof way to define the natural shape of the eye and makes your lash bed appear bolder.
Take that lash line a step further by now drawing dashes along the upper lash line with your pencil. Then quickly smudging the dashes together (before the pencil completely dries) with a pointed eyeliner brush. This creates a pretty soft shadow like appearance that again creates dimension along the lash line.
Don’t leave out this crucial step! I never apply mascara without first curling my lashes to give them a super lifted and lengthy appearance. Curl them in three parts though instead of just one harsh 90 degree squeeze. Gently pulse the curler at the base of the lashes, then at the middle of the lash line, then at the tips to give a graduated curve. I created a YouTube video showing and explaining this step if you’d like to watch it here.
If you’re looking to add an eyelash curler to your routine, the iconic Shiseido one is one of the best!
I personally prefer waterproof mascara formulas. Especially in the summertime when sweaty faces are an issue! Waterproof formulas are also really ideal for holding the curl in the lashes longer than regular formulas. Be sure to start by swiping on your mascara from the roots to the tips for the first coat. Then for the second coat, give the wand a wiggle back in forth in a zig-zag motion holding the wand horizontally, to get every lash!
