Creating an eye line is a timeless makeup technique. It gained popularity in the 50s thanks to style icons like Brigitte Bardot and Sophia Loren. It suits individuals regardless of eye shape or size. However, drawing the perfect line necessitates practice unless you adopt a certain method that has recently gone viral on TikTok.

Gine Margrethe, a well-known TikToker, shares tips associated with makeup and beauty care on her platform. One of her videos administering professional eye line tips in mere seconds has gained traction.

Achieving the perfect eye line step by step

Mastering makeup techniques can prove challenging, given that none of us were born as makeup artists. This doesn't mean we can't acquire the skills. With consistent learning and daily practice, anyone can begin to see improvement. You don't need to enroll in a makeup course, as experienced makeup artists often share valuable knowledge on platforms like Instagram and TikTok.

Renowned makeup artist Gine Margrethe actively uses TikTok. As an influencer, she frequently imparts her knowledge about makeup and beauty care. In one of her recent videos, she demonstrated the method of drawing an impeccable eye line.

What is the technique for accomplishing such a line? You need two soft eye pencils in nude and brown shades, available at any drugstore. Begin by accentuating the waterline with the nude pencil. Then, use the brown eyeliner to trace a thin line near the lash line. After drawing it, slightly lift it up using the pad of your little finger. Lastly, take the nude pencil and draw a thin line just under the brown line, smudging it gently with your finger or a Q-tip. The line is now set.

The importance of highlighting the waterline

A line drawn in this manner is subtle and elegant. Internet users have openly expressed their appreciation for it. The key to success is the softness of the pencil, which must have a creamy consistency to achieve such an exceptional effect. Also, emphasizing the waterline with the nude pencil is crucial. Doing this makes your eyes appear optically larger and gives them a rested look.
