Lining the Waterline: Best Liners & Tutorial

If you subscribe to my YouTube channel, you may have seen my video I posted yesterday all about my new darker hair! I'm so excited about it... If you couldn't tell from the video. ;)

So with the darker hair, I'm loving adding a bit more drama to my eyes. I've always been a big fan of eyeliner. To me, it's one of the biggest ways you can transform your look.  While I've never been one to always line the waterline, or "tightline" my eyes, I've been doing it a lot lately. Even before the color change.
So I thought since this technique - while simple, can be tricky, I'd devote a new video to it explaining some of my favorite products to use in that area as well as a little tutorial/demo of how I've been lining mine.

So to explain the whole tricky-yet-simple thing... What makes it tricky is the area itself. Since it's a moist area, using a liner that transfers to it easily without irritation is key. You not only need to be careful about the products you use, but you need to select products that will last throughout the day as well.  Trust me, I've tried basically every eye liner known to mankind.

Well, maybe not all of them, but I know a thing or two about most of them.

So I hope you guys enjoy my video all about the products I recommend for lining the waterline and the tutorial for how I have been applying mine lately. I also demonstrate my little trick which is what I think is pretty key in helping it stay put throughout the day. It's really simple!



Products mentioned:
NARS Larger Than Life eye pencils in Via Veneto (black) and Rue Bonaparte (nude)
Urban Decay 24/7 Liner
Loreal Colour Riche Eye Pencil
MAC Fluidline
Laura Mercier Tightline Cake Eye Liner
Armani Smooth Silk Eye Pencil (transfers softer, but lasts a long time)

What are your favorite liners for the waterline?

  1. I love the Laura Mercier Cake Liner and have found that lining your water line with liquid liner works the best. It doesn't run and stays on all day!

  3. I notice with the Perversion that it applies somewhat clumpy when it hits my lashes at the water line. I've never been able to get that liner to work for me.

    I'd be very interested in seeing you do a tutorial on eye-looks (eyeshadow, liner, mascara)for girls with glasses. I have searched high and low and can't find a good one :(

  13. Is there a way to prevent getting eyeball goop in the inner corner? I assume this is from lining my water line.

  15. I love Nars larger than life eyeliners! It also comes with a sharpener at the end of the pencil, quite practical. I love your makeup Tiffany, you look gorgeous as always!

  16. I pretty much line my upper water line every day. I have blonde lashes so if I don't I get that weird light space in between my eyelid and my mascara'd lashes. Thanks for pointing out the NARS eyeliners - I haven't tried those before.
