Types of Eyeliners

Liquid Eyeliner

Liquid eyeliner is like a felt pen. The brush is thin and softly applied on the skin. It is handy, and if intense enough, will make make your lashes stand out. It can be applied in one or two simple swoops. However, mistakes are messy to clean up and it flakes when applied on dried eyeliner. On the flip side, it is easy to remove. With practice and patience it is a great eyeliner product to use.  There is a choice of waterproof or long lasting liquid eyeliners.

Gel/Cream Eyeliner

Using gel eyeliners will make you feel more like an artist than with using any other eyeliners. Choice of thickness and precision can be achieved with the right brush. Gel eyeliners can also create different effects (smokey/subtle/strong, etc). They are waterproof, longlasting and one can mix different shades together.  Downsider is that they take longer to dry than other eyeliners.

Tip: Look down until eyeliner has dried enough and set with powder or go over it with a cotton bud to remove the excess.

 *Remember to wash the brush in between uses to avoid the brush going stale.
