Easier Way to Tightline

Tightlining 3Tightlining is a great way to thicken up the appearance of your lashes. It has been described as eyeliner or lining the waterline but a true tightline is placing color in between the lashes to create the illusion of thicker lashes without the appearance of liner. This great trick only requires your regular mascara and a flat top eyeliner brush. Watch the video below to see the full tutorial and then try it out at home!

    I will be trying your method for sure! You make it look so easy :) I do have a few questions though…What is the difference between tightlinig and lining the waterline? And when should you do which method? Do you ever do both? When is it good to do the top and bottom water lines and tightlines? I’m a little confused ;)

      Hi Ruth, Tightlining gets in between each lash so skin doesn’t show through. It’s similar to lining the water line but takes a little extra time. I don’t usually line my water line so tightlining works better for me. I do it whenever I want to go the extra mile.

      Hi Rachel (: I used a 1 1/2″ barrel curling iron for these curls and angled them away from my face (:
