L is for... lobe liner

Lobe liner
  1. Apply a piece of tape just above the lobe of your ear. Everything below the tape will serve as your canvas. Pro tip: The tape helps ensure that you get a clean, straight line.
  2. Grab your go-to liquid eyeliner and paint a solid coat onto the lobe.
  3. Add some sparkle by pressing glitter onto the lobe with the tip of your finger or by dabbing with a cotton swab. We used silver, but you can customize your lobe liner to any color of your choice!
