In Korea, this eye-defining artistry goes next-level with a bevy of techniques and tricks that clever makeup-lovers combine to play up and flatter their eye shapes. Some of the more dramatic techniques have had me thinking how bold Koreans are to try this on, while others were much subtler but made all the difference. Whatever beauty technique you are using, you can agree that applying eyeliner is an art. One little line can transform your face by making eyes appear bigger, more awake, or even changing their whole shape. Now is the time to make all the difference in the world with this Korean style pencil eyeliner look!
Step 1: The first thing you need to do is to apply short gentle strokes to the outer corner of your lid, creating a droopy wing. As show on the picture, use your black eyeliner pencil and carefully apply a single, downward motion.
Step 2: Then, extend the tail of the eyeliner to make your eyes look proportionately longer by lining the upper lash line. For more subtle and natural look, try to make the line as thin as possible.
Step 3: Once you’ve reached the desired length, elongate your liner at the outer corner of your eye by connecting it to 2/3 of the lower lash line.
Step 4: Now, to add some glamour, apply brownish eyeshadow on top of your pencil eyeliner. If you want to smudge the lower line more precisely, use a blending brush and apply gentle motions.
Do not worry if you mess up! Not even the steadiest hand gets their eyeliner perfectly from the very first time. To clean up any imperfections, dip a Q-tip into a makeup remover, and wipe away any irregular lines.
Finish off this gorgeous Korean style eyeliner effect by applying two or three coats of black mascara. Curling your eyelashes will help open up your eyes and really make them stand out!
