I wanted to do this particular experiment to show you how the laws of shading apply to the waterline as well: lighter colors reflect and open up areas by bringing them forward while darker colors absorb and close up areas by pushing them back.
WHITE LINER: This definitely opened up the eyes and made them appear the biggest, but in a more obvious way as one can see the white liner. But who cares as it’s a chic throwback to Sixties, especially if you were to pair it with a liquid winged liner and contoured crease.
NUDE LINER: This also opened up the eyes, making them look larger, but in a very natural and undetectable way. I seriously doubt anyone would notice you took the extra 5 seconds to rim them with liner, but they’ll notice your eyes look bigger.
BLACK LINER: This closed up the eyes and made them look a little smaller, but in return, they look way more piercing, as if they could look right through someone! That’s worth giving up a little in size, I think. And call me crazy, but somehow it makes her eyes look a little further apart from each other, don’t you think? Hmm… interesting… anyway, this is a must for nighttime fun as it completely changes your look.
What's your favorite waterline shade?
White. I live for the big-eyed Sixties feel!
Nude. I love the way it subtly opens up my eyes…
Black. Give me piercing eyes or give me death!
Bare. I like it natural; can't imagine tracing anything inside my eyes!
