Ladies, you are going to agree with me on this! The trickiest part of the makeup is getting the eyeliner right at one go. Even if you are not looking at nailing the winged liner, there are times that even a simple line doesn’t come clean or even if it does, you still don’t get the desired look. And that’s when the search begins trying to find the ways to get eyeliner right.
Listed below are FIVE perfect tricks to get the eyeliner right at one go. You can thank me later!
1. Putting the liner unevenly results in a jagged look. Here’s what you need to do:
It’s not easy to wipe off that crooked line on the upper lid zillion times before you finally nail it right. So, avoid tugging at the outer corners of your eyes, as this causes the skin to crinkle, resulting in not so smooth line.
Trick: Put the eye-liner with half-closed lids. Point your chin up and while looking down, and then put the liner. In case of a gel liner, use a slanted brush to get a smoother look.
2. Understanding the difference between pencil, liquid and gel.
To be honest, it is best to have a collection of all three. Pencil eyeliners are the quickest to put on, therefore, are best to use when in a hurry. When looking forward to a glam look, opt for gel liners.
Personal Favorite: Liquid Liners
Although you need a steady hand to put them, they give a more precise look. For instance, a winged liner can be best put using a gel instead of liquid. Its concentrated pigmentation gives a clear definition at the lash line. And by experimenting with the thickness of the line, you can create a variety of looks.
3. Stop overdoing the liner on the bottom lid.
Overdoing a dark colored liner or a thick dark liner can make your eyes look smaller. They can also result in under-eye smudges. So, the best way to define your lower eyelid is to use a light pencil. You can also opt for a light brown pencil to get a more subtle look. I personally like the Mac-pro-longwear eye-liner.
4. Get Over the Black And Brown liners. Move On!
Black and brown eyeliners are widely used but a little white or nude liners on the bottom lid can work marvels. They can make you look more classy and refreshed. So, turn more heads towards you with different shades of liner.
5. Always make sure to smudge-proof your liner.
Work this out in three steps. First, apply your liner with a tiny brush or a pencil. Second, take a matching powder shadow and slightly trace over the line. Third, put the liner tracing the line again. This helps in keeping the liner from smudging and also helps in making it stay for long.
