White is bright
Treat white eyeliners as any other bright shade. Therefore, keep the rest of your makeup minimal and let your eyes (eyeliner, of course) do all the talking.
Don’t go too thick
With white eyeliners, apply a very precise amount. It will look smooth and gorgeous. Going too thick will look more texture-heavy. White is bright enough to stand out with just a single stroke.
Prep your skin
Before applying white eyeliner, it’s best to prep your skin with a primer. A primer will keep the white pigment from changing colour throughout the day. Use the Lakmé Absolute Blur Perfect Makeup Primer on your eyes carefully, before applying your liner.
Extend to lower lash line
For a dreamy, romantic look, smudge on the white liner on your lower lashes very lightly. Avoid a smoky look as that may make you look like a zombie.
Opaque works best
Make sure that your white eyeliner is opaque or else, it’ll turn grey over your skin. Pick a pigmented pencil that is easy to smudge.
Define your lashes
Defined upper and lower lashes will make your eyes look bigger and bring all the focus on your white eyeliner. Use the Lakmé Eyeconic Curling Mascara. for enhanced lashes that will complement any eye makeup look.
Go for bare lids
Eyeshadow is a complete no-no, especially when you want the focus to be on your white liner. Therefore, keep your lids free of any shadow play. Just wing it with a white eyeliner and flaunt it through the day.
