♕ Make Up Look ~ Curved Liner 2.0 ♕

Back to the graphic liner looks! I've already done a curved liner makeup a while ago (here, inspired by @swayzemorgan) - totally loved it and I decided to do it again. Though this time I slightly changed the design, I didn't wanted to be a mere variation of the previous look.

The curve is smaller, compared to the first Curved Liner look I made - plus, it frames, hugs the lid shades/glitters till the inner corner; I added some dots and sharp edges to contrast the soft curve on the outer corner. Overall, I like this version even more the first one! ;D

Needless to say, this look is part of the GlitterTubes' series, so to speak. This time I wanted to try the bright fuchsia and the deep purple glitters, so I chose matching shades - and decided the add the curved liner on a second thought, to add a further twist.

This is the last look I made using a mineral pigment as eyeliner, because I finally bought the well-know Tattoo Liner by KVD! (First impressions about it coming up soon!)

So farewell to my old eyeliner. But there's a new entry: the A16 Precision Crease brush by Spectrum Collection I bought last month - I bought it because I wanted to use it as an eyeshadow brush, but it soon became my go-to brush to apply glitters! Its size, cut and shape make it perfect for this purpose. I definitely need to buy a couple more.

After priming my lids I started off with the lid shades: I applied Calypso on the inner half of the upper lid and Cattleya on the outer half (both shadows by NABLA Cosmetics); on the inner corner I used one of NABLA's highlighter in Baby Glow. I used Fashion Addict eyeshadow by Makeup Geek Cosmetics on the crease and also on the lower lid; as additional crease shade I used Blossom Blush in Daisy by NABLA, then I blended the shades with Hopscotch by MUG. To add depth on the lower lid, I used Nocturne eyeshadow by NABLA to define the lashline, and blended it with Fashion Addict - thus deepening its bright colour. On the waterline I used my beloved Feline by MAC Cosmetics.

When I was happy with the overall shadows application/blending, I moved on and added glitters. I decided to apply them only on the outer half of the lid and outer corner - because on the inner half I used Calypso, which is so bright and sparkly and beautiful... I just didn't want to cover it XD So I applied the glitters in Fairy first, on the outer lid area; then I applied Chewee on the outer corner and on the lower lid - as always I used no glue.

Time to draw the curved liner: at first, I applied the eyeliner like I usually do - following the upper lashline, making it thicker towards the outer corner. Instead of winging it out, though, I drew the curved shape and moved backwards, towards the crease. I followed it, making the line thinner as I went. I stopped way before the inner corner; on the tear duct I drew a sharp, pointy edge, then moved upwards. But I didn't connect the two lines: instead, I left an empty space, where I placed the three dots (one bigger in the middle, and two smaller on each side). I was about to stop here - but I decided to add a sharp line and a dot on the lower lid too. Then I went back to the glitters and applied them both close to the liner, to avoid empty spaces.

And then I was pretty much done! I just had to define my brow, add falsies and apply mascara... And voilà!
