Eye-liner is a cosmetic used to define the eyes. It is applied around the contours of the eye to create a variety of aesthetic illusions.
In the late 20th and early 21st century, heavy use has been associated with Gothic fashion and Punk fashion. Varying degrees of thickness has also become associated with the emo subculture and various alternative lifestyles.
It is commonly used as a daily make up routine to define the eye or create the look of a wider or smaller eye. It can be used as a tool to create various looks as well as highlighting different features of the eyes. Whether it is with a winged or tightlined at the waterline, it can be placed in various parts of the eye to create different looks.
It can be drawn above upper lashes or below lower lashes or both, even on the water lines of your eyes. Its primary purpose is to make the lashes look lush, but it also draws attention to the eye and can enhance or even change the eye's shape. It is available in a wide range of hues, from the common black, brown and grey to more adventurous shades such as bright primary colors, pastels, frosty silvers and golds, white and even glitter-flecked colors.
It is a type of cosmetic used along the rim of the eye. There are many different types that can be used to create effects from the dramatic to the subtle. There are four main categories available. Liquid and pencil ones are available in nearly every imaginable color, including glitter varieties.
Liquid is the most difficult type to apply and creates the most dramatic effect. It creates a very precise, defined line and is usually used on the upper eyelid only. It is typically sold in a small bottle with a precision applicator brush, and can create a very sultry effect.
Pencils are easier to control and have a more subtle look. Powder-based ones are harder and can create a more defined line than the wax-based variety. Wax-based ones are more amenable to smudging and can be used to create a smoky effect.
Kohl is a traditional cosmetic in the Middle East, from Egypt to India, where it has been in use since the Bronze Age. Kohl-styles are available in the United States in loose powder, and pressed powder forms. Kohl is usually black, but may appear in other dark colors, and it can be applied to the inside of the eyelid, behind the lashes, unlike the other types.
In addition to being one of the oldest and most popular cosmetics, it is significant in many cultures and can be used to define one's identity or affinity with a group. Many Muslim women throughout the world wear kohl today as a nod to their Middle Eastern ancestors and a symbol of their dedication to the traditions of their culture. In youth gang culture in California, girls have been known to display their willingness to fight through the length, and the choice marks one's affiliation with a particular group. It is also important in goth culture, where it is typically worn black and heavy along with white face powder.
