Makeup Video - Open Eyeliner

by - February 22, 2013

Here's another K-POP inspired eye makeup!  It's very edgy and I think it's appropriate enough for a night out.  If you think a normal winged line or an extended line is getting boring, why not try this for change?  :)

Just follow the steps below.  It's pretty easy and you can even try different colors.  Good luck!

1. Apply lip balm.
2. Apply concealer.
3. Apply a very small amount of foundation just to even out the skin tone.  You can put on more if you need.
4. I'm not good with fixing the eyebrows, so I always go for a natural look by using brow powder/brown eye shadow.  Just follow the shape of your brows.
5. Use a metallic/shimmery eye shadow with a copper-like color for your base.  You can also use any other color that you want, but neutral tones work best with this look.
6. Look for a darker color than the base, in my case, dark brown.  Apply it on your crease.  This will add depth.
7. Highlight your eyes using a white shimmery eye shadow.
8. With a gel or cream eyeliner, start lining your eyes but stay close to the lash line.  You can also use liquid or pen.  Wing it out in small strokes.
9. Intensify the color by adding a matte black eye shadow or pencil.
10. For the lower lash line, use the same gel liner and apply it from the inner corners.  Don't apply anything on the outer side.
11. Now, since it's called Open Eyeliner look, extend the lower lash line.  It should be the same length as the upper.
12. You can adjust both lines to make sure they are even.
13. Take a black eyeliner pencil and apply it on the lower lash line.  Again, don't extend it to the outer corner.
14. Now, for the fun part, take a white, silver or any colored eyeliner and fill in the space between the winged lines.  It's better to use shimmery or metallic.  This will accentuate the whole eye makeup.  
15.  You skip this part, but false eyelashes add extra drama so, I cut it in half and put them on the outer corner.
16. Apply mascara on your top and bottom lashes.
17. Using the same highlighter, apply some on the bridge of the nose and cheeks.
18. Time to contour.  I added some rosy blush on too.
19. For the lips, you can use any color. Here, I went for a frosted pink lipstick.  Use a lip liner first to prevent it from feathering.
20. Fix your hair and.... Smile!
