"Tightlining is basically when you apply eyeliner in between your eyelashes and underneath the lash line instead of on top," explains editorial makeup artist Alana Wright. "It gives the appearance of a fuller lash line—the eye appears more alert and striking in an understated way."

And if you're concerned about how sanitary it is to apply eyeliner that close to your actual eye, scoop the product out of the container with a clean brush and dab a bit onto the back of your hand.
