How To: Tightline Your Eyes

Is it just me or does anyone else sometimes struggle with applying false eyelashes? You have to find the right style for your eyes, cut it down to size, then fiddle around with glue and end up getting it just about everywhere except where you want it. If you struggle as I do, then here's your solution!

Tightline is similar to the lower waterline, except the eyeliner goes above your eye - on the upper eyelash waterline, as pictured here:

It's taken me a while to master eyeliner, starting a little at a time, and over the years gradually having the confidence to try full winged eyeliner etc. There are many tips and tricks to do this, but this was one of the best beauty related tip I've heard of, and you can use any gel, cream or pencil eyeliner you desire, (liquid eyeliner is generally too wet for this technique). It's like fake eyelashes, without the fake eyelashes.


As you can see, this technique makes the eyelashes look really dense and full in the after shot.

Do you use tightlining?

  1. I use tightlining all the time! My everyday make up is just mascara on my top lashes and tightlining, can't ever be bothered with bottom lashes!

  2. This technique looks really good. I'm useless at applying fake eyelashes!



  3. Oh wow, this makes such a difference! I've never got the hang of false lashes, will have to give this a proper go :) Thanks for sharing!

    1. SO much faster than applying falsies, and really simple. No problem! :)

  4. That looks terrifying, but so effective! I am definitely going to have to try and get the hang of this, even if it does freak me out slightly.

    1. The first time I did it, I was really cautious of poking myself in the eye - but just takes a little practice just like anything I guess! Let me know how you get on :)

  5. Great tips! I really want to start tightlining, i love the effect! :)


    1. Thankyou! It's so simple, however I would just avoid using liquid liner when attempting this :)


Thank-you for taking the time to comment, I read every single one of them!
