In the same way that we define cheekbones and sculpt the nose, we can emphasize the look by applying makeup to the eyelashes and creating dimension with the eyeliner. Eyelash contouring is a real trend and more necessary than ever due to the mandatory use of the mask.

Cristina Lobato, professional makeup artist, reveals the keys to achieve a perfect eyelash contouring to highlight the eyes and sweep this summer.

1. Choose your products well:

mascara and eyeliner. The mascara is preferable to have a fan-shaped gupillion: the concave part has smaller bristles than the convex side, which has longer and busier bristles. As for the eyeliner, we are going to work with different products: gel, pencil and eyeshadow.

2. Create dimension with the eyeliner. 

First of all, shade the lids with your favorite eyeshadows. Then, prepare the eyeliner by applying makeup to the water line of the upper eyelid from the middle to the end of the eye. Glue the eyeliner very well to the root of the eyelashes and fill in the gaps between them. To create the contouring effect, leave the other half up to the tear duct clean, without makeup, these spaces between the lashes allow light to enter creating dimension.

With a black or brown khol pencil draw a very fine line from the tear to the middle of the eyelid. Then, make a second line, tracing from the middle of the eyelid to the outside of the eye. With the help of a small precision brush, blend in the direction of the temple, broadening the line in this final part.

To achieve greater intensity and duration, take the gel eyeliner and with a fine brush trace a flush line of eyelashes in the first third of the eyelid. That same line we are widening from the center of the eyelid to the end, connecting with the corner of the eyeliner that starts from the lower water line at a horizontal angle to the temple.

To finish, seal and blend with a black or brown shadow to create a gradient effect and extend the duration.

3. Apply mascara on the upper lashes. 

Before applying the mascara, fill in the gaps with individual false eyelashes. Choose the most natural ones and stick them on the hair, never on the skin of the eyelid. In the same way that we have done in the first step of the eyeliner, we are not going to place any eyelash in the first third of the eye to allow light to enter. Curl the eyelashes, insisting, above all, on those located on the outside.

Lastly, apply the mascara. With the concave part, it makes up the lashes from the root to the middle part to lift and define. Then, twist the gupillion and work the lashes from medium to ends with the convex side of the brush to create volume and curl the lashes.

4. Don’t forget about the lower lashes … 

We apply the mascara with a small fan-type brush to give color to the lashes without adding texture, this way it is possible to intensify in a very natural way.

5. Clean the remains of mask or eyeliner.

 When we work so much on the eye area, it is normal for traces of shadows to come off or accidentally stain with gel eyeliner or mascara.

It is important to let it dry well before cleaning. Once dry, rub a little with a cotton swab until the spots disappear.

6. Natural eyebrows. 

The eyelashes are the protagonists of the look so we will make up the eyebrows in a very natural way.

In the first place, make up and fake a hair bare on the eyebrow, especially in the unpopulated areas, and secondly, iron the eyebrow with a bar of soap and a gupillon. Moisten the gupillon with a mist, scrape well into the bar of soap, and comb the eyebrows, from roots to ends, in upward movements. As if you were putting the tips of the pointed hairs towards the forehead and as you get closer to the end of the eyebrow, comb upwards but towards the temple.

Once this step is done, take the typical eyebrow brush with a comb and brush, with the brush part comb and integrate the soap and remove the excess, to finish polishing the tip so that it is a natural result.
