Graphic Eyeliner

I have seen this type of Graphic Eyeliner around constantly, just a little triangle on the end of your eye and I wanted to try it out for myself.
Often when I had seen it, it would only be a very small and blended shape, I however, being the drama queen that I am, decided that wasn’t for me. So I started it off just a little further back than half way across my eye and got to work.
To start this look first of all you’re going to need to prep the lid, so use whatever base/primer you have, whether it be an actual eye primer or face primer, then add your choice of concealer/foundation as I find this helps the eyelid to blend more with the rest of your face. I used the MUA primer, followed my Max Factor’s long lasting performance foundation.

Next you want to take a thin brush, I used my eyebrow (Liz Earle) one as it creates a fantastic line, and draw upwards where you want to start. Next I lined up exactly where I wanted the triangle point to be and drew the line attaching it all together. Next I filled it in with a black eyeshadow from my Beauty UK palette. At this point you can decide if you’d like to blend it more or keep a harsher look, I obviously went with the harsher look. Another Beauty UK palette was also used to highlight the eye further in the inner corners. I then lined my eyelid with Lush’s Independance eyeliner and added false lashes (Eylure.) I’ve also highlighted a little more with my Illamasqua pencil, vow. Max Factor’s black pencil has been used on my waterline alone with Max Factor’s masterpiece max mascara.

I will warn you all it is a little tricky at first to get the right shape/angle for your face and eye shape but it’s definitely worth it.
