White arrows paint in a rigorous, graphic manner using liquid white eyeliner such as Razor Sharp from Urban Decay in the Bump shade.

Double Arrow Makeup

Is there a way to make classic black arrows even more expressive? In order to achieve the most effective result, they can be supplemented with white lines, exactly the same as the outlines of black ones. This little detail will completely transform eye makeup. It will be a bright accent in the image due to the contrast of colors - white and black. You, again, need a liquid liner - it will help make the lines clear and graphical.

Outline focus

White pencil eyeliner can be useful to those who want to look more refreshed and fresh in the morning. It is enough to supplement your usual eye makeup with a white outline of the inner contour. This technique is often used by makeup artists to remove the redness of the eyes. By the way, the same technique with a white accent on the contour is also used in the evening make-up - so that it attracts even more views. Particularly well the white contour looks in those versions of makeup, the basis of which is a thick dark smoke on the eyelids.

Contrast Makeup With Red Lipstick

Makeup with white eyeliner can be easily combined with different options for a bright accent on the lips. The main bet in this image is again better to do in a striking contrast. Draw white arrows on your eyelids using eyeliner (good variations are White Liquid Liner from NYX Professional Makeup and Jumbo Eye Pencil in Milk shade of the same brand). And then on the lips, apply matte red, pink or wine lipstick. Do not forget about blush in tone lipstick. So the image will turn out really complete.

Let's see how to draw the beautiful black arrows on the eyes.

Non-standard solution

For a while, white was undeservedly forgotten in the make-up industry. But today he confidently regains his former popularity. How to properly make up with cosmetics of such a shade so as not to create the effect of applying chalk or alabaster?

  • A new kind of old shooter. If you have always adhered to a conservative style, using an exclusively black eyeliner, then it is time to refresh it a little. You can refresh your makeup by drawing a thin white line over the existing black one, and you can emphasize the depth of your look if you completely replace the black liner with the white one, as shown in the photo.

Particularly relevant will look arrows made corner, when the line passes through the upper eyelid and reaches almost half of the lower. Choosing this option, abandon the use of mascara on the eyelashes of the lower eyelid, and focus on the expressive eyebrows.

  • Smoky eyes. The effect of "smoky eyes" continues to be in trend, but stylists and makeup artists recommend improving it by drawing a light line, and moving it beyond the century. Further, the effect is fixed, as in the traditional version, with two shades of shadows, which gradually merge into each other.
  • One shot - two birds with one stone. If you do makeup with white arrows drawn along the inner eyelid line with a pencil, you will not only make the look more expressive, but also hide red, tired eyes.

Who would suit such makeup?

Perfectly refreshing it is dark and tanned skin, and also goes well with gold and bronze shades of decorative cosmetics. But girls with small eyes should be careful with similar experiments. Despite the fact that light tone visually increases the volume, in the case of eyes the effect will be opposite.

Make-up experts advise to combine white arrows with gray shadows and red liners if you want to create a retro image. Red lipstick will also help to add brightness, an example of such make-up can be seen below. Sensual lips and "open" eyes - the most for pleasant dates, fun parties and even special occasions.

Do not be afraid to experiment with images, because they make a woman's life even more rich and interesting. But do not forget to listen to the advice of experts to look really stunning.

    "Diorov arrows" with white shadows

    But this, as you understood, is an evening version. Now let's master the technique of creating a classic day makeup with white shadows. For a more spectacular make-up, take a black eyeliner.

    1. We apply a basis for shadows on a mobile eyelid or we powder an eyelid. You can in this case use a primer for the shadows.
    2. Apply white shadows and gently blend.
    3. Dim the outer corner of the eye with beige shadows.
    4. Light shadows are applied under the eyebrow.
    5. Getting to the most difficult - applying liner. This is a step that not everyone succeeds even from the tenth time. But we will tell you in detail how to draw a perfectly straight, “Dior” arrow with eyeliner. In addition, it will help fix the overhanging upper eyelid. So, take the eyeliner and draw a narrow line. The main thing is to paint the shape of the eyelashes well. The inner corner must be removed very carefully. Drawing a line wider and wider, paint the arrow to the end of the eyelashes and draw a line - this is the lower border of the arrow. From this line we lead the line back, holding it almost horizontally. We lower the arrow down and soften the transition. Do the same with the second eye. We wait until this layer of liner dries out, then once again we pass along the arrow for a more ideal result. Dior shooters are ready!
    6. We paint eyelashes, and better - we paste overhead, because the arrows look best with luxurious, thick eyelashes, which not every girl can boast.
    7. These arrows are more suitable elongated eyebrows, so the eyebrows should be extended to the temples.
    8. Lips in this makeup should be a neutral shade, slightly beige.
    9. And, of course, the hairstyle should open the face as much as possible - the arrows “require” absolute attention to themselves.
    [caption id = "attachment_1073" align = "alignnone" width = "660"] Clear black arrows will in no way spoil the light make-up. [/ Caption]

    Black and White Makeup

    1. Apply foundation under the shade, primer or powder.
    2. We impose white shadows on the mobile eyelid and blend.
    3. Draw a contour with a black pencil on the outer corner of the eye. Then we bring it to the arrow, and we, in turn, take it upward and lead it to the crease of the upper eyelid — we get a triangle. Now we lead to the lower eyelid and blend. We darken the outer corner and make the right transition. Bring the line to the inner corner of the eye and darken the mucous. Along the top line we reduce to the inner corner. Try to paint over the space between the eyelashes - otherwise there will be ugly bright gaps. Due to this pattern, a certain almond-shaped eye appears, resembling a cat's eye.
    4. A little golden shadows add on the crease of the upper eyelid and on the growth of the lower eyelashes.
    5. Apply concealer pinkish under the eyelid and blend.
    6. Color eyelashes or use the overhead.
    7. Finish makeup with brown shadows. We blend the transition from black to the crease of the upper eyelid, as well as along the lower eyelid.
    8. Make eyebrows slightly curved and pull to the temples.
    9. Outline outline the contour of the arrow.
    10. Face thoroughly powdered, we pass through the highlighter.
    11. Lips should not be emphasized: we put a little lipstick pinkish hue.

    As a rule, makeup in white does not require accessories, and if it does, it is simple and concise. As for clothes, a little black dress is the most suitable option.

    Arrows and eye shape. Which ones are right for you?

    If there is a desire to visually enlarge the eyes, black and dark eyeliner tones will not work - they will “reduce” them. The arrow needs a lighter, "swinging." With her eyes will acquire brilliance and sensuality.

    Delicate image using arrows

    Narrow eyes

    Narrow eyes are corrected by wide, dark arrows. They should not be taken outside the eye. Eyeliner lines should be sharp in the middle and slightly softened shadows in both corners, this will create a greater effect of roundness and openness. The lower eyelid is given a dull color, without affecting its inner corner.

    Almond eyes

    The almond-shaped eyes of charm will add subtle, classic arrows. They are applied along the lash line, their width and brightness depend on the case. If the makeup is everyday, they hardly go beyond the limits of the eye. For an evening out you can put them with a thicker line.

    Eye shape

    The upper arrow, applied from the middle of the century, visually distributes the eyes from the nose. It is carried out thin at the beginning, expanding and elevated to the outer edge.

    Deep-set eyes

    Глаза, посаженные глубоко станут красивее, если их подвести широкой, блестящей, не очень длинной стрелкой. Ее нужно растушевать к вискам вверх.

    Arrows adjust and slightly looming eyelids. The upper line continues the line of the lower eyelid to the connection with the fold. Above, a line is added along the crease of the eyelid to the connection with the already drawn one. The resulting corner is completely painted with eyeliner and toned shadows. This deepens the crease above the eye.

    Types of arrows

    Consider the main types of arrows.

    • The classic option - thin arrows. Their lines gently bring the eyelids along the entire length and rise in the direction of the temples.
