Everything You Need To Know About Eyeliner

  • Top Tips For Choosing Eyeliner

    💗Choose it based on your needs.

    💗Think what look you want to achieve.

    💗Keep an open mind to new options as many people stay brand loyal. Sometimes something better may come along.

    💗Based on confidence. Most beginners feel more comfortable with a pencil then may choose to change to a liquid or gel formula later on.

    💗Read reviews. Usually if it has constant bad reviews you may want to reconsider.

  • Pencil type

    Finish: Soft lines that blend naturally

    Ideal for: A more natural blend with the eye shadow, or for beginners who don’t feel comfortable with liquid or gel eyeliner types

  • Liquid type

    Finish: Fine lines that reshape the eyes (e.g. cat eyes)

    Ideal for: Glossy lines or delicate, clearly contoured lines.

  • Gel type

    Finish: Clear lines with good coloration and subtle gradations.

    Ideal for: Controlling the thickness of the line and for a smudge-free, long-lasting eye makeup

  • Natural Look

    The eye line looks more natural and beautiful when the skin between the eyelashes is not visible. Eyelashes grow in layers. Look directly into a mirror to check your eyes. If you notice any skin color peaking out from between your lashes. use an eyeliner to fill in the gaps. This makes the lasher look denser and adds impact to the eyes.

    If you tilt your chin up and look slightly downward into the mirror, you’ll see the roots of the lashes on your upper eyelids. This will make it easier for you to draw lines.

  • For best results, gradually thicken the line as you move from the inside to the outside of the eye to draw attention to the outer corner of the eye. For a more natural finish, use a cotton swab or eye shadow to blend in the borders above the eye lines. Eyes look more natural when the lines don’t stray far from the actual corners of the eyes.

  • Cat Eyes

    Cat eyes have an upward wing from the outer corners. The lines on both sides must be perfectly symmetrical, with narrow tips at the outer corners. Liquid or gel type eyeliners render sharp lines ideal for cat eyes.

    The winged lines can be drawn in various ways. Some women prefer an upward wing outwards and upwards from the corner of the eye. Others prefer to define the final point of the line first and then draw the wing backwards toward the corner of the eye.Longer, more symmetrical lines are easier to render using this second method, which may be helpful for beginners.

  • To create a thicker winged line, draw an outline first and then fill in the space in between. This method is also useful for drawing sharper lines.
