How To Use White Eyeliner
A professional make-up artist explains why and how to properly apply white eyeliner, while demonstrating each step on a model, so you can see exactly how it's done.
Hi. I'm Faye from SimplyFaye dot co dot uk. I've been a makeup artist for twenty years, and I'm going to give you some tips on how to apply makeup.
In this video, I'm going to show you how to apply white eyeliner. White eyeliner pencil is probably the best way to go, as I am actually not sure how many gel eyeliners, or liquid eyeliners, come in white. So, pencil is the best thing.
To apply white eyeliner, ensure that your pencil is sharpened between each application. White eyeliner is best applied inside the eyelid. This will create the illusion of bigger eyes.
So I'm just going to stretch the skin down and apply this inside the model's eye. And for this, you can go right into the corner. Okay.
And you can also apply white eyeliner to the top lid. So, if you stretch your client's eyelid up, and then you can go inside, and do the same thing. And that just opens and widens the eye.
White eyeliner can also be used underneath the brow bone here, as a pencil, and you can just smudge it in, and it just helps lift the eyebrow in a nice subtle way. And it's particularly good if you haven't plucked your eyebrows recently, because it just gives you that lift that eyebrow plucking would do. And actually, it also covers some of the little hairs as well.
And that's how to apply white eyeliner. .
