Applying Eyeliner and Eye Shadow: What Comes First?

By | Featured, News | No Comments

What’s the correct order when it comes to applying eyeliner and eye shadow? Is it the liner first or is it the other way around? Whether it’s thoughtful makeup advice from mom or expert tips from professionals, you probably have different answers.

The truth is that there’s no right or wrong answer. Like other makeup application debates, the answer to what to apply first depends on your preference.

Expert Weighs in on Applying Eyeliner or Eye Shadow First

Joanna Simkin is a celebrity makeup artist, and she’s offering her take on the matter. According to her, you can apply either of the two first depending on the effect that you want.

Eyeliner Goes First for a Smoky Look

If you want to achieve a smoky eye, applying eyeliner first is Joanna’s makeup tip. First, trace your lash lines with a pencil or gel liner. After that, brush some eye shadow to smudge the lines. The makeup artist says that the liner makes a great base for the eyeshadow.

Achieve a Defined Cat-Eye by Applying Eye Shadow First

If the look you’re trying to achieve is the classic cat-eye, apply your eye makeup the other way around. Do the eye shadow first then apply the eyeliner. Create the wings using a pencil eyeliner, then trace over the shape with a liquid or gel liner. According to Joanna, doing this will make the cat-eye sharper.

Do the Water Lines Last

If you like a piercing look, you can do this by applying eyeliner along the inner eye rims. Joanna says that you always want to do the water lines last for hyper-definition. Dark colors can add depth while white pencils add an eye-opening effect.
