How many of you wanted to create perfectly lined eyes but ended up looking like a panda instead?
Don’t get me wrong, pandas are damn cute, but I don’t want to look like one when I have to attend a wedding or something. Knowing how to apply the eyeliner is one of the basics of makeup, so if you love makeup, you eventually learn how to do it. I am no exception! My go to is the winged eyeliner. When I feel lazy and don’t feel like doing myself up too much, I like going all out on my eyeliner. We’ve broken this potentially scary tasks into steps so that it’s easy to understand.
Things You Will Need
- Eyeliner (with an eyeliner brush if required)
Before we talk about how to apply the eyeliner, we must go through the basics of the types of eyeliners out there that you can use.
Types Of Eyeliners
Although this may seem intimidating at first, this is probably going to become your best friend if you love those cat eyes. I, for one, swear by it. They usually come in pots, so you’ll need to use a brush for it. I highly recommend the Eye Studio Lasting Drama Gel Eyeliner by Maybelline.
A liquid eyeliner is best for precise application. These liners come in two types of packaging, a tiny vial-like bottle with an extremely fine and precise dipping brush, and a marker type pen with a felt tip. If you’re a beginner, then I suggest you go for the latter one. The Sketch Marker Liquid Art Liner by Too Faced is a good choice for the felt tip liner.
This type of eyeliner is usually the first one we all started out with. It’s best used to line the water line and also to create a smokey look. The 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil is the no-brainer choice for the pencil eyeliner.
And now, we shall proceed with the tutorial with no further ado!
