You can’t draw eyeliner beautifully after 40!
Sadly, as we age, the face line becomes looser, the corners of the eyes and the corners of the mouth droop, and the face becomes dull and sunken. The way to get out of such a state is “eyeliner”. Just by drawing the eyeliner, you can make the black eyes look bigger and create a youthful look.
However, if you try to draw eyeliner on the outer corner of the eye where wrinkles and sagging appear, won’t it be rattling? Magazines say, “Pull the eyeliner to the corners of your eyes”, but I can’t draw it!
Even if you manage to draw eyeliner all the way to the corners of your eyes, over time your eyeliner will become wrinkled, disappear, or become dark under your eyes like a panda. You want to keep your eyeliner clean all day long.
You don’t have to pull it straight! Pull slowly, little by little.
If you’re worried about sagging around your eyes, you don’t have to draw it because you couldn’t draw your eyeliner smoothly. The trick is “slowly”.
First, start from the top of the black eye. If it is difficult to pull due to wrinkles or sagging, lightly pull up slightly above the outer corner of the eye with one hand to make it easier to pull.
Apply the tip of the eyeliner to the edge of the eyelashes as much as possible. It’s not beautiful if there’s a gap between the eyelashes and the line when you open your eyes. It’s a good idea to draw with the feeling of filling in the gaps between your eyelashes. If you don’t feel scared, it’s easier to insert the tip of the pen under the eyelashes and draw.
Slowly draw from the top of the eye to the outer corner of the eye, moving it slightly left and right to fill it in. After pulling it to the outer corner of the eye, extend it a little until the extension of the lower eye line and the upper eye line intersect. At that time, instead of pulling downward, be conscious of upward. Close your eyes and make it look like it’s jumping up a bit.
If you can’t help but shake your hands, it’s easier to fix your elbows on the table and pull.
Eyeliner for those in their 40s and above should be doubled. A slightly thicker one will look neater.
If you just draw it once, the line will be thin, so draw it again from the iris to the outer corner of the eye so that it overlaps the line you drew earlier. The line may be rattling, so I feel like I need to fix that. When you draw to the outer corner of the eye, the outer corner of the eye that intersects with the extension line will remain in a triangle, so fill it in.
Isn’t it pretty thick and flashy? You may think that, but the eyelids are often sagging, so when you open your eyes unexpectedly, it’s just right. Moreover, if the lines are not clearly visible, it will be difficult to create sharpness, so thin lines are meaningless.
Close your eyes again and check the length, thickness, and whether it is loose. If it protrudes considerably, it can be corrected by lightly rubbing it with a cotton swab (preferably the type with a pointed tip) that has been dipped in latex.
You can increase the staying power by holding down wrinkles and crumbles with powder!
Some people say that the eyeliner they put a lot of effort into doesn’t last until the evening. If you notice, there are many cases where the bottom of the eye is black like a panda. Lightly dab powder foundation or powder before applying the eyeliner to remove excess oil and make it easier to apply.
Alternatively, after finishing your eyeliner, apply powder eyeshadow with pearls on the outer corners of the eyes, which are especially prone to falling off. The powder covers the eyeliner and prevents it from getting twisted. If you choose champagne gold or bright beige, you can create a highlight effect and brighten your eyes.
Also, if you draw a line with eye shadow such as dark brown from above the eye line, it will be a gradation and the line will not fall off easily.
Easy-to-use liquid eyeliner that does not cause pigmentation and can be easily removed for adult skin!
If you want to draw the eyeliner little by little, we recommend a liquid eyeliner that has a thin tip and can be drawn firmly. There are items that are hard to fall off and hard to twist. It’s easy to fill in between the eyelashes, and it’s also easy to fill in the final triangle area at the outer corner of the eye. Here are two of my personal favorite liquid eyeliners.
Drawing comfort that is gentle on the skin. A soft matte texture that is not too noticeable with charcoal ink.
Excellent soft matte color. It uses Kishu Binchotan charcoal ink that is resistant to pigmentation and contains plenty of moisturizing ingredients, so it is gentle on the delicate eye area. The ultra-fine bristles are supple and firm, and I’m happy that they stick to the skin from the time they’re pulled so they don’t get twisted. Also available in natural brown.
