I decided to do a really quick tutorial with an inspired look from Qri which I posted about here. It is very simple and the reason why I made a tutorial for it was because I wanted to wear the look again and show you guys how I apply it.
K-pop stars love their black eyeliner because it really frames the eyes and makes someone look strong and fierce. Well, that's just how I see it haha, no idea what their main intention is. But I think eyeliner can make someone appear more atttractive. For girls it can make them look more sexy and for guys it can make them look more manly. 'Guyliner' is really popular amongst the K-pop boy bands and I don't have anything against it however I do like to see them look more fresh-faced. To me it really depends how it's worn because some people can pull it off better than others, and it can't be too thick or weird.
In this look I wore EOS Candy Doll Lenses from MukuCHU which I absolutely adore and find very comfortable! Thanks for sending them to me MukuCHU~
I also wore some wavy clip-on hair extensions to go with the look to have hair more like Qri's x] These hair extensions were kindly sent by Iwantcute.com which I will fully review in another blog post.
Basically I've shown two ways in which you can wing-out your eyeliner from the outer corner of your eyes. One way is demonstrated on Qri's look (which I like to call 'fish eye' because it reminds me of a fish) and two parallel lines that resemble an equal sign.
Here are some pictures. The quality isn't that great because I was using my iPod's camera - it's better to camwhore with because of the front camera xD
Qri's eye look
(my uni timetable is on my wall haha)
2 different types of double-winged eyeliner
Left = diagonal lines
Right = horizontal lines
Flicky waves - loving these hair extensions so much
Good lighting is important for pictures (:
I like how it reflects onto the bridge of my nose, making it look slimmer
The look is suitable for gyaru style~
I'd look even more gyaru if I had worn top and bottom falsies
My Anna Sui inspired mirror always makes an appearance in my tutorial videos ♥
And here's the video tutorial! Please don't mind my fob-like tutorial steps, I had limited words to use each time for the sentence to fit so it was as short as possible. Hope you understand what I mean though x) Don't mind my randomness at the end haha ;P Enjoy!
Some people would apply just eyeliner instead of eyeshadow but I like how the eyeshadow gives more dimension to the eyes. Thick, bold black eyeliner is the key to this look! And I always apply my eyeliner AFTER I apply eyeshadow. Haha Gerry ;P
I love both styles of winged eyeliner but I reckon the diagonal lines stand out more in photos than horizontal ones. Both are suitable looks for many occasions.
A question - actually, I think I might change it to questjen lol
So, a 'questjen' for you:
How important is black eyeliner to you?
For me, I love black eyeliner. I actually prefer how I look with black eyeliner than not having any on at all. Every time I go out I used it to line my waterline and when I go to a party or an evening event I would also line my top lash line. It completes my makeup looks and if I just has eyeshadow on, it wouldn't look that good. I don't really like brown eyeliner because it makes me look sleepy/tired and white eyeliner doesn't frame my eyes at all. Black eyeliner is a must for me!
