Social media is going gaga over a new make-up trend that’s just summer-perfect. If you have been thinking of indulging in a bit of floral fun this season, how about trying floral eyeliners? They are quirky, kitschy and full of pop. Here’s what you will need: Bright coloured liquid eyeliners, some scotch tape (to set the angle for a winged liner), an angled eyeliner brush and dotting tools to create a professional look.
The best part? You can let your creative juices flow and try as many variations as you want! From a minimal floral string along the eye-lid to bouquets of flowers ending up in a wing, there’s just so much to play around with. You can also embellish the make-up with stick-on bindis along the lash to adorn your eye garden with some jazz. But remember to keep your make-up light because floral liners create a strong statement. A layer of light foundation, blush-on in red or peach, and a pastel lipstick are enough to complete the look.
Some handy DIY tips:
This is one of the simplest and most basic DIY for a beginner. You can try different looks with bold wine, dramatic electric blue and flaming reds. Some tutorial videos will come in handy.
Apply a thin liner along the insides of the upper eyelid. Prep the eyelid with a primer and apply a neutral eye shadow. Pick out liquid eyeliners in interesting shades of green, orange, yellows and pink. Turn your fist into a palette and dab smudges of liners. Now, using dotting tools, create dots along the eyelid in a floral arrangement. Finish off with a single coat of mascara.
