如何使用透明膠帶畫出完美的液體眼線

Let’s face it: Unless you have a degree in geometry, the steady hands of a surgeon, or an inclination for art, mastering the technique of liquid eyeliner is just plain hard. Luckily, sketching on exotic cat eyes just got a whole lot easier thanks to this one sticky trick. Here, we teach you how to use good ol’ run-of-the-mill tape as a stencil. Trust us, it’s a game changer.

我們來面對現實吧:除非妳有幾何學的學位,外科手術醫生的穩固巧手,或著是在藝術領域有好手藝,不然畫液體眼線的技巧對一般人來說實在是不容易。很幸運地,運用以下的技巧介紹,大家可以容易地畫出一對美艷的貓眼妝。在這裏,我們要教妳運用日常生活中所熟悉的透明膠帶來當做我們的圖案模版,請相信,這將會是妳畫液體眼線的「改變關鍵」。

Before

We first present you with our finished face, sans eyeliner. Notice how even with mascara, shadow, and brow pencil, the eyes still lack a certain sense of definition—especially when paired with such a punchy lip.

畫液體眼線前

我們首先展現一張已畫完妝,但無眼線的臉。仔細注意一下,即使是已經上了睫毛膏、眼影、眉筆,更配上了艷紅的雙唇,但是眼妝部份似乎還是少了一些清晰的輪廓。

Step 1

To begin, take an inch-long piece of Scotch tape and press it to your hand a few times to dull some of its adhesive power. This will help it from sticking too severely to your delicate eye area.

第一步驟

我們首先撕下約2.5公分長度的透明膠帶,將它按在妳的手背上幾次讓它的黏性減弱些,這樣它才不會在細緻的眼部有太強烈的黏性。

Step 2

Place the tape underneath your bottom lashes at the outer corner of your eye and angle it towards your temple. Avoid angling the tape towards the end of your brow, otherwise your wing can take on more of an Amy Winehouse-esque hooked appearance. We’re going for a Rosie Huntington-Whiteley wing here.

第二步驟

將透明膠帶從下睫毛眼部的外角處朝太陽穴方向的位置黏上。避免朝眉尾的方向黏上,不然效果會像歌手艾美·懷絲那像太有上鉤的眼線感覺,我們要的眼線是像英國超級名模-蘿西·杭亭頓-懷特莉的眼線效果。(中文翻譯/編輯:一定要確定左、右眼貼膠帶的角度要一致喔! )

Step 3

Begin sketching at the middle of your upper lash line, which is where the liquid line should begin to thicken. Draw a stripe to the outer corner of your eye using short, dash-like strokes. Be sure to place your pinkie finger against your cheek for added stability and control.

第三步驟

開始從上睫毛部位繪畫出眼線中間的部位,這部位就是液體眼線開始要畫粗一些的部位。在外眼角以畫虛線的方式來畫一條線,記得用小拇指放置在面頰的位置來增加控制的穩定性。

Step 4

Using the tape like a straight-edged ruler, continue drawing your line along the tape past the outer corner. Don’t worry if some of the liner bleeds onto the tape—this will all be removed any way! Messiness isn’t an issue here, but do make sure the liner gradually gets thinner and thinner as you sketch out the line.

第四步驟

運用透明膠帶的邊來當做量尺一般,繼續畫眼線並將它伸展超出外眼角。若眼線液不小心滲出至膠帶上,別擔心,它待會就會被移走。在這畫亂掉沒有關係,但切記眼線的線尾應該要是越來越細緻。

Step 5

Remove the tape and proudly revel in your pristine wing.

第五步驟

移除透明膠帶,展現出清新美麗的眼線尾翼。

Step 6

Finish the line by going back to the middle of your eye and sketching short thin strokes over to the tear duct. By the time the liner reaches the inner corner, the streak should hug the lashes as tightly as possible.

第六步驟

回到眼部中間的部位,繼續以細小的筆劃來畫出細細的眼線連接至內眼角淚管的部位,記得眼線與眼睫毛根部之間要畫得沒有空隙,密不可分。

After

Notice how the liquid liner starts out slim, gradually widens as it moves along to the outer corner, and then flicks out to a sharp, straight point at the end.

畫液體眼線後

液體眼線的寬度效果是從精細,漸漸的加粗直到外眼角,然後上揚出尖銳、直挺的眼線尾翼。

Final Look

Now, the eyes look well balanced and distinguished in their own right compared to the rest of the face. And what’s more, the liquid eyeliner adds the perfect final touch to this retro-inspired look. Huntington-Whiteley, who?

最後整體妝容

現在看看自己對稱又有顯著效果的眼妝跟整張臉的妝容對比。不但如此,液體眼線更是在這復古式彩妝裏增加了完美的點睛之筆。什麼?誰是英國超級名模-蘿西·杭亭頓-懷特莉?
