Liquid Eyeliner vs. Pencil Eyeliner
The eternal question - liquid or pencil eyeliner? Well, it really depends on what look you want to achieve. Liquid eyeliner formulas help you create precise, sharp lines - perfect for the graphic liner, a sleek subtle wing, or bold cat-eye.
Pencil eyeliners are much harder to create precise shapes with - however, that doesn’t mean they’re useless. Using a pencil liner just on the water lines helps create the illusion of thicker eyelashes. Plus, they’re a great way to create a quick smokey eye!
First, apply your pencil liner like you would a liquid one - it’s okay if this looks a bit messy and imprecise because it just adds to the overall smokey effect. You can use a clean finger or a blending brush to smudge out the eyeliner until it’s perfectly blended for a super-quick, easy smokey eye. Just follow up with mascara to finish off your makeup. This looks even better with coloured pencil eyeliners too - a bronze pencil eyeliner is perfect for a metallic smokey eye!
Best Luxury Eyeliner Products & Tips
One tip for making eyeliner last all day - even if you haven’t done an eyeshadow look - is to use eye primer beforehand. Primer stops oily lids from breaking down any eyeliner, ensuring it stays looking perfect all day long! This works on all kinds of liquid eyeliner, too.
For getting a perfect winged liner every time, you can’t go past the tape trick. This is one of the best techniques for impeccable eyeliner, especially if you have shaky hands or have a hard time getting your eyeliner to match. it’ll make you look like a pro!
Line up a bit of scotch tape from your lower lash line to just below your brow. We don’t want too harsh of an upward angle - it should follow your natural lid shape. All you need to do now is sweep your liquid eyeliner brush along your upper eyelid, following the shape of your eye.
It’s okay if some of the liners get on the tape - once the tape comes off, it’ll reveal a sharp, flawless wing. Voila! For a pop of colour, you don’t have to stick with plain black liner either. Mix things up by reaching for deep blues and browns to stand out from the crowd!
