Try Eyeliner Stickers in Pastel Shades

Try Eyeliner Stickers in Pastel Shades My main trouble when it comes to applying eyeliner is getting both eyes even. With neutral colors, this can be a bit more hidden than when you’re wearing lavender or aqua. The solution? Try the new eyeliner stickers. All you have to do is press them into place and you’re good to go. They were all over the Dior runways, so you know they’ve got to be good.

Draw a Tapered Line for the Best Look

Draw a Tapered Line for the Best Look If you’d rather stick with a traditional eyeliner pencil, forget the old rules. Experts suggest drawing a tapered line. This allows the color to blend with your other eye make-up and create a soft and natural look. I definitely suggest practicing before doing your face up for good. That way when it’s time to go out, you have the technique mastered.

Try Using Eyeshadow Instead of a Liner Pencil

Try Using Eyeshadow Instead of a Liner Pencil I love this method. It’s easy and it gives you a bit more leeway when it comes to mistakes. Instead of using an eyeliner pencil, blend a pastel shade of eyeshadow into your lids. You’ll get a bit of a smoky effect while also getting to experiment with pastel liner. You are going to love the results!

Prime Your Lids before Putting on the Eyeliner

Prime Your Lids before Putting on the Eyeliner Top make-up experts highly encourage you to use primer on your eyes. This helps make-up stick and keeps it in place longer. When you’re wearing a super noticeable shade like mint green, you don’t want it to fade is some spots and not others. Make sure you swipe primer all over your eye so you can count on that eyeliner still being there every time you look in the mirror.

Consider Your Skin Tone when Choosing a Pastel Shade

Consider Your Skin Tone when Choosing a Pastel Shade Just like with any make-up, you want to be sure you choose a shade that matches your skin tone. Light pink or blue looks fabulous on lighter skin tones while medium toned girls can get away with orange, teal or green. Darker complexions should try lavender or fuchsia, say the experts.

Use White Liner as a Base for the Pastel Color

Use White Liner as a Base for the Pastel Color In addition to primer, white eyeliner gives you a good base for getting your pastel liner to pop, as well as stay in place. Swipe the white on first, then follow it up with the pastel shade to finish. It’s as easy as that!

Try Mixing a Couple of Pastel Shades if You Can’t Find the One You Want

Try Mixing a Couple of Pastel Shades if You Can’t Find the One You Want There’s nothing wrong with piling a couple of pastel colors on top of each other to get the perfect shade. It’s going to require some experimentation to get it right so be ready to see things you can’t stand on your quest to find the perfect look.
