Trend To Try: Script Eyeliner
There is a new beauty trend for summer this year and it is a craft above what everyone can do; cool-script like liner. While you can try your hand at doodling this yourself, I'd recommend simply picking up a temporary tattoo (à la Tattoo You's Heartless Tattoos).
Here's how to follow in her fabulous footsteps once you have your temporary tattoo in hand.
Create a clean, matte base. Whether applying to your eyelids or face, it’s important to make sure that you have a naturally dry skin so that the tattoos don't end up slipping and sliding all over the place.
When it comes to eyes specifically, a liquid base might be best. Steer clear of powder; this will do you no favors when it comes to getting the tattoo to stick. Oh and don't forget to prime your lids beforehand.
You ready to get this show on the road? Great. Go ahead and cut around the temporary tattoo design, getting as close to the lettering as possible. I recommend using sewing or eyebrow scissors once you remove the bulk of the excess paper. It just makes things a little easier.
You're in the home stretch now...put the tattoo onto your skin.
Take a water-soaked cotton swab and use this to press on your temporary tattoo, working from one side to the other. Allow this to sit for a bit so as to avoid wrinkling or a messy mishap. Then, slowly and carefully peel the paper away.
You might want to apply a spritz or two of setting spray too. Just allow this to dry before you go crazy with the blinks.
