Do you get confused when people say, apply liner in your waterline or put that color on your lid? You sit there thinking, where exactly is my waterline? I put this eye chart diagram together to help break things down for you.
This chart will also help you better understand how the brushes I sell at Make-upjungle.com are used.
Here are some words from The Glamour Glossary to help define the parts of the eye (in the beauty world):
Lid – The area below the crease and right above your upper lash line. For makeup purposes, we will divide it into 3 sections:
Inner Lid – The area closest to the tear duct and nose.
Middle of Lid – The center of the lid between inner and outer lid.
Outer Lid – The area in the outer most part of the eyelid closest to your hair line.
Waterline – The inner rim of your lash line.
Browbone – The bone right below your eyebrow (area between the crease and eyebrow).
Crease – The middle of the eye where you feel your eye socket. Think of it as the indent in the center of your eyelid.
Tear Duct – The inner most part of the eye.
Lower Lash Line – The area just below the bottom eyelashes (eyeliner placement).
Upper Lash Line – The area just above the top eyelashes, where lashes meet your eyelid (eyeliner placement).
Outer V – The outer most part of the eye.
Highlight – The highest point of your eye right under your eyebrow
