Beauty Buzz Word: Waterline

Waterline is the term makeup artists commonly use to describe the inner rim of the bottom eye lid, the area between your eye lashes and your actual eye ball. Caution should be used when applying cosmetics to this area. Since the waterline comes into direct contact with your eye and your tear duct, applying product here can leave eyes more prone to trauma and infection. Constant use of liner in the waterline can also lead to clogged tear ducts, so it is very important to ensure all of the product is removed from this area daily.

hi jessica, i'm a very short-time reader of your blog (probably all of 2 weeks), but i read all your posts and find your blog intriguing and informative! i've been thinking about working towards becoming a makeup artist, but i don't even know the first step... do you have any words of encouragement for someone like me?

Lissa-

Great question, and if you can't tell already by reading my blog, of course I have some words of encouragement for you!

Actually, your query is such a good one that I think it really deserves a post all of it's own- stay tuned later this week for a post that will help to point you in the right direction.

Thanks for reading and, as always, feel free to comment any time; questions and alternate opinions are always welcome!
