Transparent Eyeliner Is Perfect For Makeup Minimalists

Less is truly more

Transparent Eyeliner frames your eyes.

It’s all about creating a border around your eyes or drawing the outline of a typical winged eyeliner with a concealer and letting the natural darker shade of your eyelids and under-eye area pop out, essentially also creating a no-eyeshadow eyeshadow look.

May uses a blunt makeup brush to create a sharp outline using concealer.

To create this you’ll need a makeup brush with a sharp tip so you can create clean “eyeliner” outlines using concealer.

Concealer is your best friend for creating this makeup trend.

Next, you have to smudge the edges to soften them out for a more natural look.

You can also fill out the gaps with gloss and glitter.

May also shows how you can add more glam to your Transparent Eyeliner by filling out the gaps with colourful makeup pencils, glossy eyeshadow, glitters and more. You can also get creative and put rhinestones for extra pizzazz.

Will you try this?
