Eyeliner is pretty versatile on and off the runway, from cat eyes to open winged liner to the more creative double flick. Basically, we’ve seen and done it all. But a dramatic and superbly Instagrammable lining technique is on the rise. We’re talking about the wide eye color slick.
It’s just a dash of color on your eyelids, blended well into your eyeshadow of choice. You can use a gel liner, a metallic liquid liner or even a dusted powder with a brush. The technique doesn’t involve crafty wings or pointed edges, it’s really just about the color, making it a spring favorite.
Priming your eyes is a must for this look since flaky or patchy colors can be kind of embarrassing. Go for a smoothing primer and a clear gel eyeshadow base before you get adventurous with hues. Also, broad lining is really about focusing on one color palette so don’t introduce too many accents.
