How to Apply Liquid Eyeliner
When it comes to eyeliner, I personally have always preferred using eye pencil or those rotator type eyepencils – I find it very easy to trace over my upper lash line with these and don’t have to worry about waiting for it to dry, especially when in a hurry to get to work. However, I recently read a few things about liquid eyeliner which I want to share with you guys – it’s not as difficult to use it as it seems!
1. Prime factor: I did not know this, but just like we prime eyelids before using eyeshadow, we can do the same for eyeliner too! It helps a lot in making it stay on and keeping it smudge-free. It also creates a good base for the colour to sink in.
2. Eyeshadow first: For smokey eyes, liquid liner also looks good and can be used to create a dramatic effect. If you’re going to use a nude or neutral sparkly eyeshadow, use it before you use the liquid eyeliner. It sets better that way.
3. Retro wings: Winged eyeliner is hot this year due to the whole retro/vintage revival. Make sure you apply it in one fluid move, for an easy winged eye. Pull the ends of the line you make outwards for a cat eye or winged eyeliner look. Think Deepika Padukone in Om Shanti Om – the thicker the better!
4. Day vs night: People tend to think liquid eyeliner is better suited for a night out than for office. But trust me, if you keep the rest of your makeup simple with a nude or neutral coloured lipstick, barely there blush and a dewy complexion, liquid eyeliner with a thin line can bring out your features naturally.
