60's inspired liner look

step 1:
prepare the upper lid with a very light layer of medium shine eyeshadow base so that your liner colors show up bold. a great eyeshadow base for this look is MAC's rubenesque paint pot

step 2:
it's time for the the pink liner application. This line will begin in the inner corner socket of the eyelid and follow the natural line of your eye crease until halfway. At this point you'll pull the line "up" parallel to the angle your eyelashes point up. Extend this line almost as far as the end of the brows.

There are a wide variety of colored gel liners you could use for this step (using a thin angled brush.) for this photo I used Makeup Forever's Aqua Cream.

step 3:
the next step is to add the black liner. For this look I used a black gel liner and the same small angle brush mentioned in the previous step. Begin with a thin line along the inner lashes, gradually creating a thicker line as you go along. When you reach the end of your eye, pull the liner up into the iconic 60's wing shape. A good choice for black gel liner is Maybelline's Eye Studio Gel Liner.
