With its help, you can visually increase the density of eyelashes, enlarge small eyes, enhance the brightness and brilliance of the iris. In addition, liquid eyeliner is easy to use — you just need to master a few little tricks.
Choosing an eyeliner
Liquid eyeliner is in the collections of many cosmetic brands — from luxury to budget. Before you buy your own copy, test the eyeliner in the store. Draw a few lines on your wrist and evaluate their brightness and saturation. A good eyeliner dries quickly, retaining deep color and a slight natural sheen. Rub the applied lines with your finger — a quality product will not crack or crumble.
Assess the density of the eyeliner. The product should not be too thick, gathering lumps. However, an overly liquid remedy will not work. The brush should be thin and elastic, without sharpening hairs. With this brush, you can draw arrows of various thicknesses.
Choose the color you want. For evening make-up, a classic black eyeliner is suitable. During the day, color is more appropriate — chocolate brown, dark blue or gray. For special occasions, you can try bright neon or glitter eyeliner.
Several methods of applying eyeliner
Apply a fixative base and a thin layer of neutral eye shadow to prevent the product from spreading and holding on for as long as possible. If you are not sure that you can easily draw arrows with liquid eyeliner, outline the lines with a contour pencil. Evaluate their symmetry, and then proceed to work on the arrows with liquid eyeliner.
Start drawing a line from the middle of the upper eyelid, holding the brush as close as possible to the roots of the eyelashes. Draw with thin strokes, overlaying them one on top of the other. For greater comfort, hold the eyelid with your fingers. Be careful not to get too much product on the brush. It is desirable that the eyeliner does not get on the eyelashes — when it dries, it will make them stiff.
Lead the arrow to the outer corner of the eye. If your eyelids are lowered, slightly lift the tail of the arrow up. Then continue the line to the inner corner of the eye. The lower eyelid should not be brought down, it is better to emphasize it with shadows or a soft pencil. Do not apply eyeliner on mucous membranes — this can cause severe eye irritation.
Make sure that there is no light gap between the arrow and the lash line. If this happens, carefully fill in the gaps with eyeliner or shadows to match. Be sure to make up the eyelashes, giving them a beautiful curve — this will complete the makeup.
To visually enlarge the eyes, expand the eyeliner line at the outer corners of the eyelids. If desired, the line can be slightly shaded with an applicator. Do this immediately after application, while the eyeliner has not yet had time to harden.
Pay attention to the expiration date of the eyeliner and its consistency.
Use a quality black liquid eyeliner from a well-known brand.
