Golden Globes Beauty Trend to Try Now: TightliningJan 13, 2014 @ 9:31 am
File this under the easiest red carpet look to bring into the real world! Did you notice how Jennifer Lawrence, Kate Mara, Allison Williams, and Mila Kunis‘s eye makeup from the Golden Globes all had an extra smoldering edge? The trick lies in the thin, inky definition swept across each star’s waterline. Tightlining, or applying eyeliner directly to your inner lash line, gives dramatic looks like Mara’s and Lawrence’s a sexy twist, but also works to amp up a natural effect like Kunis’ mimimalist eye. To try your hand at the trend, start by choosing a soft, blendable liner or a shadow pencil that won’t irritate your eyes — Lawrence used the Dior Crayon Kohl in Black ($29; sephora.com), Williams picked up the Avon Glimmersticks Liner in Blackest Black ($7; avon.com), while Mara went au nautrel with eco brand Antonym’s Waterproof Pencil in Noir ($18; antonymcosmetics.com). Be sure to sharpen your liner prior to applying, as any dull edges can tug at your waterline. If any product smudges along your lower lashes, use a small liner brush or a sponge tip applicator to wipe away the excess.
