While the magnetic lash craze has died down a bit, its new partner-in-crime seems to have brought this innovative technology back to the forefront of the beauty scene. We’re talking about magnetic eyeliner! Together, the duo can instantly and easily create a false lash look—putting the fear of lash glue spoiling a perfectly curated eye makeup look to rest. What’s the deal? Read on to get the inside scoop on all things magnetic eyeliner, from what it is to how to use it.
Magnetic eyeliner is just what it sounds like—eyeliner that’s magnetic! Typically, these liquid liners contain iron oxides, a mineral deposit, in order to give them their magnetic abilities. The purpose of this type of eyeliner is to give your magnetic lashes something to adhere to instead of applying a magnetic strip to either side of your fringe. This allows for a more natural, precise appearance while also causing less wear and potential damage to your lashes.
Ready to learn how to put magnetic eyeliner to use? It’s actually quite simple. Here’s what to do.
Yeah, you guessed it. Start by lining your upper lash line with your magnetic liner. You can apply it just as you would a normal liquid eyeliner, using short, feathered strokes to create a precise line—you can even wing it out if you’d like. Just make sure the line is thick enough to serve as a solid base for your magnetic lashes to adhere to while being as close to your lash line as possible. Give your eyeliner enough time to dry before moving on to the next step.
Pick up your magnetic lashes—it’s time to apply them! First, take your magnetic lash strip and gently bend it to help it better form to the shape of your eye. Hold the lash strip near your lash line to make sure it’s the same length as your lid. Trim if needed. All that’s left to do is line your magnetic lash up with your lash line and place it on top of the magnetic eyeliner, allowing the magnetism to work its magic for instantly long, voluminous lashes!
We’re sure you have an idea, but just in case, let’s go over how to use magnetic eyeliner as part of your eye makeup routine!
Make sure any traces of makeup are removed from your skin to give yourself a clean, fresh base to start with. Saturate a cotton pad with micellar water, then hold it over your eyes for a few seconds before gently swiping away any residue.
By now, you know the importance of using an eye primer in your makeup routine. So, grab one and apply it to both your lids before moving onto the next step.
If you’re going to apply magnetic eyeliner and lashes, it’s safe to say you’ll want to rock some equally gorgeous eye shadow to complete the look. To make things easier, consider using an eyeshadow palette that has all the shades you need in one product. Take your pick from the options in the L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Pocket Palette Eye Shadow line.
You know what to do! Use your magnetic eyeliner to line your upper lash line and prep for your magnetic lashes. Which brings us to the final step…
You guessed it—finish your eye makeup look by gently placing your magnetic lashes where they belong. Now you’re ready to head out the door and let your fringe do all the talking!
