Welcome back HJ squaddies Today is another video from my makeup hacks playlist and I’m showing you how to apply any color to the waterline how to make it stay smudge proof and I’m saving you money by making your makeup bag go further Welcome to another HD tutorial a channel for everything hair and makeup artistry and today I am letting you in on one of my little secrets These are two techniques I use for adding color to the waterline or lash line and how you can make it stay So we’re going straight in with Costa Riche color pencil from Mac You can use Power Surge if you’re looking for something lighter or if you like more drama I love Illamasqua black gel liner Completely cover the water line with the pencil and Then take a small brush like this one is my favorite and this one’s from Inglot. It’s the 32t And Over the top of your liner you’re going to apply a matte eyeshadow Which would gently pat over the waterline and it creates a caking effect the shade I’m using here is Rowdy from the BPerfect Carnaval palette But just find a coordinating shade that works It will intensify the color. So if you prefer something softer, then opts for a lighter shade like Mac’s Kohl pencil power surge Keep watching for the next technique that I’m going to show you BUT for simple brown and blacks that’s it guys. It’s so easy. You just apply the pencil, apply a powder directly over the top So next is my way to save in money! I’m saving room in your kit Using a nude or white pencil and here I’m going to use Mac’s chromagraphic pencil in shade, NC 15 You cover the area where you want to work So in our case we’re going to cover the waterline and then take ANY colour from your kit – ANY COLOUR This will save you hundreds on pencils and creams and powders But here I’m using the BPerfect carnival palette again and I’m taking the shade Mint going to pat it over the top of the nude Waterline and then just let that cream grab the color You’ll create a caking effect again. It’ll give you a nice colour pop and you can do it with absolutely any color so drop me a comment below and let me know what color you would go for and If you also want to get more tips and tricks go check out the link below for our growing Facebook group We are growing.
