How to Apply Eyeliner

Eyeliners are probably the most popular makeup item used by women world over. It is the most important and perhaps the most difficult type of eye makeup to apply correctly. Eyeliners help in highlighting and defining the eyes. By doing so, the eyeliners enable us to downplay other facial features that are less attractive.


They come in various forms these days like:

• Pencil eyeliners: As the name suggest these come in the shape of pencils. When choosing pencil eyeliner, look for cream eyeliner to ensure an easier application. These eyeliners are suitable for both top and bottom lash lines.


• Liquid eyeliners: Liquid liners are difficult to smudge. They have a more shiny finish as compared to pencil eyeliners. Because of the difficult application they are not recommended for beginners.


• Gel or Cream eyeliners: Gel liners are the newest forms of eyeliners available in the market. They come in a pot and you need a brush to apply them. They are thick, stays longer and are easy to use.


• Glitter eyeliners: These eyeliners come in small tubes. You can apply it directly around the eyes to have a glossy and glimmer look.

  4. i like liquid eyeliners the best cos they give me the most precise application. Gel eyeliners are second in preference. Pencils are fun wen I want to experiment with colors so for pencils I prefer brnads like Faces i bought the Lotus Opulence Botanical Eye Liner and really like it. Dries pretty fast. Stays on for atleast 5 to 6 hours atleast. From trial and error I have realized that given that i have dark circles, applying on lower lashline/waterline is strictly avoidable.
