Do you want to know how to do foxy eyeliner, but you’re not sure how? Here I’m going to show you how to achieve a foxy eyeliner look with a straight and precise line.

We’re going to be using a bobby pin to help us achieve our professional-looking result.

Tools and materials:

  • Eyeliner
  • Bobby pin
Using bobby pin

1. Fill in with eyeliner

Place the wide section of the bobby pin next to the outer corner of your eye and fill in the gap with an eyeliner pen.

Ensure that the bobby pin is in the right position. We want the eyeliner to make our eyes appear longer by extending the corners of the eye in a straight line.

This is unlike the cat eye look, which is more winged.

Spreading eyeliner

2. Spread eyeliner

Gently pull on your skin with your finger on the end of the eyeliner to spread it out.

Widening eyeliner

3. Widen the eyeliner

Widen the base of the eyeliner and fill it in.

Applying eyeliner to pin

4. Apply eyeliner to pin

Apply eyeliner to the long end of the bobby pin.

Drawing on eye

5. Draw on eye

Use the bobby pin to extend the inner corner of your eye.

Draw a v-shape, going outwards from your top lid and then inwards under your waterline. Repeat the process on your other eye.
