What Does It Mean To Tightline
Your Eyes?
By DARBY WAGLER
Eyeliner is used to create a bold look, whether it’s a dramatic cat eye, a tiny flick, or a smudged eyeliner for a smokey appearance. However, if you prefer a more natural look, tightlining is the way to go.
Tightlining is when you apply eyeliner along the waterline, or the pink "line" that's closest to your eyeball. First, curl your lashes to see your waterline more clearly, then gently lift or pull down your eyelid and swipe the product on, stopping before you reach the inner corner.
Using black or brown on your top waterline will make your eyes look larger and your lashes really stand out, while using a dark shade on your lower waterline could make your eyes appear smaller. Or, if you love a smokey eye, adding tightlining to your routine will jazz up your whole appearance.
