The Many Uses of White Eyeliner

Enter my giveaway if you haven't already!

Hello lovelies! I have always loved my white eyeliner. My mom still doesn't understand how extremely useful it is. You'll want to get one that lines easily so you don't irritate your eye; I use Rimmel Soft Kohl eyeliner in Pure White (I've heard NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil in Milk is good as well, though I can never seem to get my hands on NYX!).Well, I use it for three purposes:

1) As a base for shadows. Gently use the eyeliner all over your lid, then smudge with a finger to create a white base. Any eyeshadows used afterwards will appear more vibrant against the white 'canvas.'

2) As a matte highlight. Use your white eyeliner in the inner corner of your eye and to highlight the browbone, then blend. You've created the perfect matte highlight!

3) To give the illusion of bigger eyes. Find your lower waterline (the flap of skin between your lower lashes and your eye) and gently place a figer under your eye. This should reveal the waterline. Line it in white, giving the illusion that the whites of your eyes extend farther down than they do.

Well, all for now! Hope you enjoyed my super-quick post. :) Please take the poll in the left sidebar, or leave requests!

Love, Val
