Tightlining is one of my favourite eye-lining techniques. It gives great definition but still looks subtle and natural, plus it also makes your lashes look thicker. It is great for all eye shapes especially those with hooded eyelids because it doesn’t take up any lid space. Not to mention it doesn’t require a whole a precision application unlike winged eyeliner. It is also a great technique to use before applying false lashes as you won’t end up with a gap in between the band of the false lashes and the base of your natural lashes.
Tightlining is done by applying your eyeliner in between your eyelashes instead of above them.
You will need: Either a flat eyeliner brush with gel eyeliner (I like Essence Gel Eyeliner) or a three dot liner like Too Faced Three Way Lining Lash Tool (a budget friendly version is ELF Essential Triple Tip Waterproof Eyeliner Pen but wear the tip down a bit on the back of your hand first otherwise it will be too firm and will hold too much product) To finish off the look use a mascara. I’m using Maybelline The Rocket Mascara (I find the formula a touch clumpy but it still gives great length & volume. My other favourites are: Benefit They’re Real, Smashbox Hyperlash and Covergirl Lash Blast Clump Crusher)
7 Little-Known Tech Tools Teachers Should Try Out
There are hundreds of thousands of apps, tools, and websites that teachers could learn from. But, well, teachers don’t have that kinda time. In fact, the lack of time is a big issue when it comes to education technology integration. Handing off an iPad to a teacher and saying ‘there now you have an iPad, go revolutionize learning!’ is how most districts still approach integration.
So in an effort to boil down the most effective (even if they’re not the most popular) education technology tools, many people like myself test out and recommend just a small fraction of the many offerings out there. A terrific blogger I follow, Jacqui Murray, did just that when she recommended 7 tech tools that educators should be using. (That article is great, check it out.)
Since we’ve established that teachers are short on time but not on resources, these kind of articles are great for a connected educator on the go. But you know what’s even better? A useful blog post turned into a video! Who doesn’t love that? That video is embedded above and worth a quick watch and courtesy of the fine folks at TeachHub.
Most of the tools are not very well-known or at least not overly used and talked about. If you use them, how have your experiences been? Any other tools you’d recommend be added to this list?
This is writing prompt #703… but it’s been reworked based on some excellent feedback… feedback about simplifying the wording of things, which I’ll try to incorporate more often. If anyone else has specific prompts that they think need to be reworded or simplified, please let me know. I really appreciate the feedback. Sometimes I forget what Milton Glaser said: “Just enough is more.”
