Eyeliner Advice

For those of us who have decided to take the whole looking good aspect seriously, here are some few tips and advice on applying eyeliner. The eyeliner can be one of the trickiest aspect of makeup especially when applied, but the beauty of it is when it is applied properly, the effect can be amazing. Most people wonder what the importance is, well lets try a little experiment, apply your makeup (eyeshadow and everyother thing), line one eye and leave the other not lined, look at yourself in the mirror and you will see the difference. It opens up your eyes more making it pop, and makes it look more elegant and sleek.

You can use an eyeliner pencil, a liquid liner or an eyeliner brush dipped into a deep shadow to line eyes.

  • Eyeliner should be applied close to the base of the eyelashes.Hold your head down and look down into the mirror, practise makes perfect.
  •  liquid eyeliner can be lined from the inside of the lashes outward in one big sweep. You can also line the eye from the middle of the lash line outward, then finish the line from the inner corner of the eye to the middle.(liquid liner can only be applied on the eyelid and not under and it is better to keep your eyes closed when applying a liquid liner)
  • If you make a mistake, don't panic, just take a cotton bud, dip it in makeup remover or a mosturizer cream and dab on the spot that needs to be corrected.
  • If you are using a pencil  and its too hard, run it under hot water to make it soft so it can glide on easily.
