What is tightlining?

Tightlinig is an eye lining technique where eyeliner is applied into the lash line and in the area where the eyelid becomes the eye. The trick to a perfect tightline is to darken the lash line without getting liner in the 'wetline" where the eye membrane starts. The benefit is that it emphasizes the eyes without looking overly made up because it darkens the lash line. You can tightline on either the upper or lower lid or both and you can use eyeliner like you normally would along with your tightliner.

How Do You Do It?

To tightline the eye, apply the eyeliner right to the lash line. Gently pull your eyelid to expose the lash line (pull down on the lower lashes, up on the upper lashes). Apply liner into the lash line and just inside the eyelash line. You can push the liner down into the lash line or make tiny dots between the lashes. Work in the tiny area between the lashes and the eye membrane (the wet area). I know many people do "wetline" (apply eyeliner to the moist eye membrane), but this is not a good practice. It could irritate your eyes - if you get some on that area blot it off with a Q-tip. .
Always apply your tightliners before any other eye makeup, otherwise it will smudge when you tug on your eyelids.
You can tightline on either the upper or lower lid or both. If you want you can also use eyeliner like you normally would along with your tightliner.
The 2 keys to getting a perfect tightline are practice and the right product.
