Liquid liner tends to last longer, and has a stronger pigment, than other formulas. Liquid liners create a more defined look than pencil or gel. The task of beginning to use liquid liner can be daunting. Today I share tips to help you with liquid liner application.
Use a liner pen. Liquid eyeliner that comes as a pen, such as Kat Von D Tattoo Liner, is an easier place to start. The liner is a similar shape to pencil liners, and this makes them easy to handle and apply. Pen-shaped eyeliners often have a finer tip.
Apply eyeshadow first. If you are applying full eye makeup, applying the eyeshadow first acts as a base. It creates a dry base for the liner to adhere to.
Try using tape as a stencil to keep your hands free. Placing a piece of tape against your lower lash line, extending toward your temple, creates a clean line. This keeps your hands free.
Clean up the line. To erase any smudges, and define the line, soak a cotton ball in makeup remover and gently slide it along the wing. (This post by ELLE Magazine features pictorials to help with liner application.)
