Set up the foundation for the web eye.
You’ll want to have black on your lid of your eye. While you can use powder, Kelli Bartlett, the Artistic Director of GlamSquad recommended using a liquid lipstick on the eye. You can use a cream or matte formula, just make sure it’s not something that’s going to move easily. I love Lime Crime Black Velvet Matte Lipstick ($20.00, limecrime.com). It’s a true black and not going anywhere!
Afterward, you’ll want to use an eyeliner to create the “legs” for the spider web on the eye. Bartlett used Urban Decay Perversion Waterproof Liquid Eyeliner ($22.00, sephora.com). Bartlett shared a pro-tip on how to create the legs: “Think of it like a clock. You go from noon to 2 o’clock to 4 o’clock…choose all odd numbers or even numbers.” Afterward, you will want to create a “u” shape to connect the lines and start to make the web.
It matters what kind of eyeliner pen you use. Bartlett shared, “You’ll want to choose a pen with a really fine point. It doesn’t have to be the world’s most expensive liquid liner.” If you are looking for something more affordable, I love Black Radiance Fine Line Liquid Eyeliner ($3.29, blackradiancebeauty.com).
Bartlett encourages, “If you mess up, don’t worry! Use the Pond’s Cold Cream and use a Q-tip. It helps you to fix it precisely.”
