5 Eyeliner Hacks Every Woman Must Know!

#BGStars remember the time you reached work without wearing eyeliner and everyone thought you looked tired or just woke up from bed. Not cool! An eyeliner can elevate your look, taking it from simple to oh-so-gorgeous; an eyeliner is a sign of strong women who can tackle any situation in life. That one stroke takes skills after all! Can you imagine Bollywood stars Deepika Padukone without her sharp winged eyeliner or Shraddha Kapoor without her quirky blue eyeliner! Considering the struggle with the winged or cat eyeliner most of us face, we have put together few interesting eyeliner hacks that will help you decide what to pick and also prevent you from being late ever again for any occasion.

5 Eyeliner hacks every woman needs to know. Take a look!

1. Make your eye makeup last longer by setting your eyeliner with a matching eye shadow.

First, line your eyes with a pencil liner, and then lightly dust eye shadow in the same shade on top to hold the liner in place. Use Bollyglow’d Purple Rain Duo Eyepencil Eyeliner & Rani (metallic lavender) shade from the 9 Eyeshadow On Set Palette to hold it all together for a longer period of time.

2. Use a pencil liner as a guide for tricky liquid liners.

They say if you can do liquid liners, you can do anything. Well, it’s easier for some but for those who are not yet confident using one, use a similar shade pencil eyeliner first and then glide your liquid liner over to avoid raccoon eyes. Bollyglow’s Precision Felt Liner is worth the try and perfect to nail those precise strokes. Don’t forget to get yourself Bollyglow’s duo eyepencil eyeliner that has two shades in one, just incase you need it!

3. Add glitter liner to instantly transform your look from day to night.

A little sparkle never hurt nobody, so make sure to keep Bollyglow’s Monday Blues Shadow Liner handy because it can be used as a liner and eyeshadow as well. Thanks to the fine tip on one end and a smudge brush on the other! Go on, swap your plain liner with something new & NOW.

4. Use brown instead of black for a more universally flattering look.

Brown as a colour is less harsh than black, we suggest use both with Bollyglow’s Brun Mystique + Midnight Moon (black kohl) duo eyepencil eyeliner that works on all eye colours and shapes.

5. Use clear tape to nail the winged liner & cat eye look.

Never let your winged eyeliner make you late for any event! Place the tape at the edge of your lash in a slant towards the end of your brow at the edge and draw a line. Get a hold on Bollyglow’s Precision Felt Liner in Black (fIlm noir) & Blue (blueprint) which has a fine tip and firm grip to help you wing it out in no time & correctly.

Take a look!

The Kohl Pencil Eyeliner

What it is: A timeless classic, smoky, smudgy eye pencil, easy to travel with.

What it does: This creamy-smooth pencil is ideal for lining, defining, coloring and contouring eyes. It glides on easily and blend beautifully for dramatically defined, or soft and smoldering lines you crave.

How to use: Wiggle eyeliner directly along the waterline or lash line to define eyes and add panache to your looks. Get as close to the lash line as possible on both top and bottom lashes. You can sharpen with small pencil sharpner.

Try Bollyglow’s unique double sided kohl pencil in classic black (Midnight Moon) + dazzling jewel tone if you’re into a natural standard black or colour to complement your eyes. The satiny kohl glides gently across the waterline and offers intense color in just one stroke. It contains mineral-based powder, such as Zeolite, to support blendability perfect for smoked-out smudges (smoky eyes!). The jewel-toned shades contain hyper-emollient ester for a shiny glam finish.

The Felt-Tip Pen Eyeliner

What it is: A water-resistant, long-wearing matte eyeliner with a liquid felt-tip brush—a crowd pleaser in short!

What it does: The liquid felt-tip pen delivers clean and precise winged lines for instant drama. Plus, it’s easy to control and great for thick lines. You can perfect your winged eyeliner look with a liner you don’t have to sharpen that isn’t messy and creates a clean line.

How to use: Apply with the tip angled over the lash line to get sultry red-carpet eyes.

Make sure Bollyglow’s Felt Liner in Blueprint and Film Noir is the newest edition to your makeup bag if it isn’t one your essentials yet; this innovative liner is made with natural earth pigments and enriched with coconut oil that guarantees smooth ink flow. The easy-to-use applicator ensures precision and control.

FACE

During Holi, there is a tendency your skin is prone to rashes & breakouts because of the harsh chemicals in the colours.

Use a hydrating primer & foundation like Bollyglow’s Prime Time CC Primer & Filmi Foundation in 7 shades to protect your skin from colour damage. Doing so will create a barrier between your skin and the harmful colours, preventing it from damage.

EYES

This Holi, experiment with colours for your eye makeup. Use attractive shades of green, purple, blue or any colour in contrast to your outfit, pick any bright hue that will reflect the spirit of the festival. If you like it simple, use an eye shadow in neutral tones or line your eyes with a basic black eyeliner. Colour yourself pretty this Holi-make use of a water resistant & smudge proof coloured eyeliner for that instant pop in your eyes. Try Bollyglow’s Idoleyez Precision Pen Eyeliner to create a dramatic wing or a simple stroke.

LIPS

Apply a lipstick that will make you stand out and prevent your lips from drying-glossy or shimmery, you pick. But first, don’t forget to moisturize! Use lipsticks in tones of red or fuchsia. Smear a shimmery lipstick on your lips to match the festive mood and look irresistible when you enter that Holi party. Choose from Bollyglow’s 10 Rebel Lips Lipsticks in shimmery shades to amp up your Holi look this year.

Gem of a person & friend you are Aquarius; someone who believes having good friends and simply spreading love can change the world. The sign of the water bearer, the Aquarius beauty is known to possess free-flowing confidence in sharing her opinions & visions. And this is clearly seen in her bold beauty routine.

Whatever the occasion-work, date night or hang out with friends, our Aquarius girl feels her best when she’s all dolled up— which is why we’ve recommended these smudgy hues of aqua blue liner paired with radiant skin and a neutral, yet luscious lip for her zodiac beauty look!

Makeup Look For Every Aquarius To Try – Aqua Blue Eyeliner + Glossy Lips

Prep Up: It’s all about the base and you know it. Apply your base makeup with your go-to flawless face routine. For your base you want to opt for something nourishing and long-lasting like Bollglow’s Bolly Prime Time CC Primer; apply a small amount on the entire face in upward and outward direction for a natural & luminous complexion.

Step 1: After moisturising your face, correct any kind of blemish, dark circles, under-eye bags and then conceal it with our favorite Bollyglow’s Selfie-Ready Conceal & Correct Duo that’s packed with Vitalux vitamins for instant skin rejuvenation. After this is done, complete your skin routine with something smooth, weightless & hydrating, we’re talking about Bollyglow’s Filmi Foundation! Dispense a pearl sized amount from the pump and apply product starting at the center of the face and blend out with fingertips to stay flawless #AllDayEveryDay—just how you like it.

Step 2: Face prepped up, now begin the actual work ladies. Did we mention blue is your lucky colour! Work towards getting the blue in your eyes right, start by using Bollyglow’s Duo Eyepencil Eyeliner Aquawoman + Midnight Moon for the eyes that gives you the best of two colours. Add the blue & black on the lower or upper lash line (as you wish!). You sometimes like to keep it smoky (smokin’ hot), then simply blend the colour to the center of your eyelids for a brushed out effect.

Step 3: Use an angled tip brow pencil like Bollyglow’s Bollybrow Shape & Set Brow Pencil. Create natural, hair-like strokes and the spoolie with clear gel to groom brows to perfection.

Step 4: Keep your lips simple yet brilliant, a little shine & tinted coverage is perfect to really allow your eyes & lips to draw the well-deserved attention! It’ll become your favorite if you can get your hands on Bollyglow’s Mini Lip Kit Romantic Comedy— a trio (matte, cream & gloss) that is hotter and sexier than the three Khan’s of Bollywood.

Where can you rock this look?

Not loud, carry off this look at work or even your next big date. If you wish, skip the black liner and apply the blue only for a milder, sassy version.
