Helena Christensen with heavy liner-rimmed eyes
There’s something so instantly sexy about eyes rimmed with solid black. It draws attention to the gaze and adds subtle drama without having to apply a whole lot of other makeup.
This look on Helena Christensen is actually similar to the Mila Kunis version here, because the liner
- goes onto the water line (inner rim of the bottom lashes) thickly so there is no flesh visible
- follows the downward slope of the upper lash line at the outer corners.
- is probably waterproof black gel for that intensity, control, and ability to cling in an opaque layer to the water line.
The only difference is that Mila’s liner is slightly thicker and then extends into a low wing at the outer corners (more dramatic), while Helena’s does not extend beyond the corner of hers (great for day or if you’re new to liners).
Both Helena and Mila have slightly sloping doe eyes, and this way of applying liner plays it up. If your eyes don’t slope, it would still be gorgeous; just more cat-like.
(Note that if you have a mono-lid or your eyes are extremely hooded (the fold goes over your lash line at the outer portions, this look would not work for you.)
