TUESDAY TIP : Line Your Tight Lines, Ladies (& Gents)!

I think a lot of people don't really get the importance of lining their tight lines(both upper and lower. But here I am emphasizing more on upper tight lines). So I am here to tell you, IT IS IMPORTANT. Well, at least to me it is. If you still think it's not, read on so I can convince you that is it indeed, an important part of your make up routine. Hopefully you'll change your mind after reading this post. Hehe.

I used to work at Benefit when I was in still a University student. It was kind of like a "fun" thing to do at that time although I didn't even know anything about make up. I have some days without classes, so I decided to work part time on days that I was free and also during weekends. I figured why not do something with my time and earn money & experience rather than wasting time on the Internet (note that at that time I didn't have my Youtube channel yet and my blog was private). So, my good friend, Noor recommended me to her manager and the next thing I know, I was working at Benefit. This is where my love for beauty started, to be honest. I started to swatch and play around with the testers as the supervisor asked me to try on the products and said that I can do my make up there at the counter, using the testers so that when customers asked about my make up, I can recommend them what I'm wearing on my face. Imagine, I have never owned any make up except for a black Maybelline eyeliner and was offered Benefit products to wear everyday. That offer sounded like music to my ears! 

The supervisor taught me a lot about make up and she was kind of mean about it, saying how my eyebrows looked bad and how my mascara wasn't properly applied. I wasn't really fond of her at that time but now I am so thankful because without her mean remarks about my lack of beauty knowledge, I wouldn't know half the things I know now (the other half of my knowledge came from YouTube. Haha). But this supervisor of mine was the one who commented on how my tight lines were bare and it looked horrible, according to her. I remember I was mentally cursing her.

"Excuse me, my eyeliners are perfectly fine!"
"I know how to do my make up, thank you very much!"
"I am fine with my bare tight lines, it's not a big of a deal. You suck."

I didn't see the cruciality then, but now, I will never leave the house without lining my tight lines! It's like going out naked! That's a little exaggerating but you get what I mean. 

Here is a picture of my right eye, upper tight line lined with a black eyeliner.


And here is a picture of my left eye, tight line not lined.

You can actually see the difference from these pictures. It makes a huge difference, guys!!
If you can't see the difference in those two pictures, here is another picture of both my eyes. If you still can't see the difference in this picture, you need to get your eyes check. Haha I kid, I kid. 

In all seriousness though, tight lines without eyeliner are just not attractive. 


So, do line your tight lines ladies! 

If you don't know how to line your tight lines because I totally understand the fear of poking your eyeballs while lining your tight lines, then you can just Google 'how to line your tight lines' or if you would like me to do a tutorial, let me know. I would be more than happy to post some how-to's on my blog. 

Practise makes perfect, they say!

I used to be scared of tight lining my eyes. I managed to do it (cukup syarat jak la). Now I don't like the process to cleaning that area.
