When I got my new Maybelline liquid liner a month ago, I was suddenly addicted to it.
Here’s how I get my liner as perfect as possible (it doesn’t always happen though!).
1) Use a primer
I use Urban Decay’s Primer Potion on my lids and it avoids any transfer during the day or any smudging.
2) Find a good eyeshadow color
This is just a cheap one from Elf, but I use it all the time! it is a gold/rosegold color that isn’t super pigmented. I use it all over my lid when I want an easy makeup day. It makes it look like there’s a little something on your lids without being too much.
3) Start with one straight line
I find the easiest way for me to do liner is to go across the lash line first. When you concentrate on just getting a straight line, it’s easier than going in for a wing. Once you’ve accomplished this, you can start figuring out where you want to draw your flick. You could also just leave a straight line across your lash if you like how it looks!
4) Draw one line to start your wing
I go with the rule that you should go alone the line of your bottom lash line. This prevents you from making a wing high up on your eye, which looks unnatural. A small, easy flick looks best. Go over it a few times to see how thick you want it to be.
5) Perfect the line
I go over the flick a few times and connect it to the base line that I originally made. This makes the line thicker and a bit more natural on your eyelid.
I then of course curled my lashes and used so mascara. What are your tips for liquid eyeliner?
