…The infamous Flicky Eyes! One simple flick of the liquid eyeliner in my opinion can change your entire look (and all you need is some liquid eyeliner and a steady hand)! It takes away the innocence of your eyes which in turn adds a mysterious yet seductive glare to your look! It really can add a new edge to your outfit.
Initially flicky eyes were made famous by the likes of Marilyn Monroe, Brigit Bardot and Audrey Hepburn. The 1960’s saw in flicky eyes left right and centre. The bigger the flick, the better the photograph!
Tip: For a casual day look I would suggest creating this effect over some pale brown/beige eye shadow as it adds to the dark and mysterious image without being too overwhelming for a daytime look. I would also suggest starting the gradual line 2/3rds of the way across your eye lid so that it creates a slanted look which makes your eyes appear wider! I’ve been using the ‘Exaggerate’ eyeliner from Rimmel and it does a great job for £5.25!
