What is the puppy liner trend?
Everyone across the globe is obsessed with the world of Korean beauty and makeup. Several popular trends often trickle into the mainstream and take the internet by storm. The Korean puppy eyeliner is one such trend.
The puppy eye eyeliner trick is supposed to make small eyes appear larger. It is also the perfect eyeliner style to suit hooded eyes. This puppy eyeliner for hooded eyes is also a great everyday look. It is minimal, fine and looks very natural.
What is different about the puppy eyeliner trend?
The classic eyeliner that we are all used to is most commonly created with an upward flick. While recreating a puppy eyeliner tutorial, instead of flicking your wing upwards, you drag it downwards. You have to draw your liner down in the direction of your lower lash line, to achieve the perfect puppy eye eyeliner.
Here is a step by step breakdown of how you can recreate this viral puppy liner makeup.
Step 1: Prime your lids
This is an essential step you shouldn’t skip, especially if you have oily lids. You don’t need to purchase a specific eye primer for this step, you can simply use your face primer. This will help your eye makeup stay for longer without creasing or moving.
Step 2: Line your eyelids
After priming your lids, take your eyeliner and start to draw a line across your lid. To begin creating the puppy eyeliner, start from the inside of your lid and extend it towards the outer corner of your eye. Once your eyelids have been lined, extend your liner and make the flick face downwards. Extend the curve depending on your liking and choice. The flick has to be naturally facing downwards and also close to your lower lashline. If you’re not confident with using liquid eyeliner yet, you can practice with a kajal until you get the hang of it.
Step 3: Connect the flick to your lashline
To complete the puppy dog liner, take your kajal and connect the flick to your lash line. Start by lining your outer lash line to the centre of your eye. This will give your eye a rounded look and make them look more open and full.
Step 4: Complete your eye look
Once you’re happy with the way your puppy liner is looking you can move on to complete your eye look. Since this is a Korean trend, it is best to keep your makeup muted and natural looking. This will help your facial features shine.
Apply a few coats of mascara to your eyelashes and fill in your eyebrows. This will complete your eye makeup look and accentuate them. If you want your eyes to pop more. You can take an eyeshadow colour that is closest to your skin colour and sweep it across your lids lightly. This will help your eyes to appear more open.
Complete the makeup look
To complete this look, apply a very light layer of foundation or concealer. If you want your makeup to look natural, it is best to use only one base product. It is also imperative to choose a face makeup shade that matches you perfectly. You can use the Maybelline Fit Finder Foundation tool to choose the shade that fits you perfectly. Using your perfect shade match will help your base makeup look natural and give you an even skin look.
