Define your eyes:
Apply the eyeliner starting from the inner corner of the eye, apply in three sections (inner, middle & outer lash line). For beginners to keep it sturdy, just rest your hand on a table for stability while applying a liquid liner. You can try The Body Shop’s range of long-lasting, smudge-resistant liquid liners for outlining and defining the eyes, with a felt-tip to provide smooth application.
Get the classic look:
For a classic cat’s eye, apply the liner precisely above the lash line keeping it uniform in thickness. Do not stretch the corners of your eye to apply a liquid eyeliner. The correct way is to place your mirror at a lower level in such a way, that you can tip your chin upwards and still see yourself with both eyes during the application.
Use a red lip liner all across the natural lip line. Fill in the lipstick using a lip brush for a neat application.
You can use alternatives like wines or maroons on your lips. You can experiment with other bold lip shades like fuschia, orange, etc. When wearing a dark lip, the rest of the face needs to look flawless. Don’t go beyond concealer, foundation, and loose powder on the skin.
