Nothing pairs better with bold red lips than thick lashes, but how can you get the look without using falsies? Do like the pros and try invisible liner (aka tightlining)! This simple eyeliner trick intensifies your eyes without feeling over the top and pairs perfectly with a volumizing mascara! Here's how to get the look...
Prep the skin
Smooth, flawless skin is a must. Before applying makeup, treat your skin to a nice scrub to exfoliate away dead skin cells and refine the appearance of pores (just make sure to avoid the eye area!).
Rinse your face and then slide a cotton pad soaked in toner over your skin and neck. Finally, apply a layer of hydrating serum onto your skin before massaging your favorite day cream in.
A sheer foundation
Unify your complexion with a lightweight, illuminating tinted moisturizer. Use a foundation sponge to smooth the product onto your skin and finish by tapping it in for a flawless finish.
Now it's time to tightline! Start by brightening the eye area with a radiance concealer. Then use a freshly sharpened eyeliner pencil and draw a thin line at the root of the lashes, working in short strokes along the contour of the eye. Try to keep the color as close to the roots of the lashes as possible and then use the same pencil to line your waterline. Finish with two coats of volumizing mascara.
The result? An intense but very natural look!
A bold kiss
A bold red lip brightens the complexion and gives character. Trace your mouth shape with a red lip pencil before applying your lip color with a brush for expert definition. Blot, reapply, and you're all set!
