Evana Patterson has lived and breathed make-up for over ten years. She has travelled and worked as a make-up artist in Hong Kong and Japan and currently resides in Auckland, New Zealand. Evana recently won a nationwide search to be New Zealand’s Max Factor Make-up Artist. When asked what the best thing is about being a make-up artist, Evana says “It’s a job that’s not really a job! Knowing you have made women feel great about themselves is rewarding”.
Finding a good product is your first step – you want a liner that is not too soft that it breaks and ends up sliding half way through the day but not to hard that it pulls your skin and doesn’t give enough colour.
Ensure your pencil is sharpened with a fine point on the tip, to give a thinner line.
Start with your under eye – I like to line about one third of the way underneath the lower rim for day look but for a smoky night look I line the inside rim (waterline) right the way across. I then wing the liner out slightly on the outside corner to accentuate the eye.
To get a nice smooth line of the top lid, gently drag the skin at the outside corner of your eye upwards, this will pull the eyelid tight. Start on the inner corner, following the lash line as closely as possible. It may even help to draw directly on the lash line as to get a thinner line. Continue out to the outer corner of the eyelid and extend out slightly to match the lower extension.
