CONFETTI EYELINER TUTORIAL
Here is a step by step tutorial for mastering the confetti eyeliner:
- The first step to any makeup regime is to start by getting your essentials together. Specifically, for the confetti eyeliner, you need to decide the colors to be used and to what extent. It all depends on your outfit for the day.
- The next step is to start with the actual makeup by adding a dot to the outer corner of your eye. This is where you would want the eyeliner flick to end. This step is important considering that putting that end dot will act as a guide to ensure that your cat-eye doesn’t end up going all over the place or doesn’t get awkwardly long.
- The third step is to flick a standard backbone line for your eyeliner. You will be filling this up in the future steps. So, make sure you get this step right.
- Now, you can begin to fill in your flick by dotting it with the tip of your eyeliner, instead of drawing on it smoothly (like we usually do for a cat-eye). Here, you can choose a myriad of colors to experiment with considering the outfit you are likely to sport. When you’re sure of the two or three colors you will be using, alternate between liquid liners of both hues, and dot your way to the end. If you fancy recreating Katie’s monochrome confetti eye look, switch and swap between a white and black liquid eyeliner.
- Finish off with a nice dark black mascara and a complimenting eyeliner flick on your lower eye. Don’t forget to add a little glitter on the liner to give yourself that extra edge.
If you follow the steps diligently, you should end up with a fabulous looking confetti eye-look.
1. Color Is The Key
For achieving this confetti eyeliner look, the basic steps remain the same. You just need to use at least three bright contrasting colors mixed with a little white for the dotting part of the makeup regime. The intelligent use of a bright red hue on the lower eye is a statement move when considering this eye makeup.
2. Subtle Yet Chic
Here we can see that the Instagram user uses a mix of red, dark blue and purple to achieve a perfect confetti that says a lot without being too flashy and loud about it. The confetti eyeliner works wonders with her brown matte lipstick. Not to forget the white highlight at the corner of the eye, absolute genius!
