My Fool-Proof Liquid Eyeliner Routine

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I go over the flick a few times and connect it to the base line that I originally made.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?

  1. Well my personal tips for liquid eyeliner are to choose the products provided with the right tip, so in the ‘pen’-like packaging, because they’re easier to use. A good tool is also the oblique brush, which helps to create the cat-flick, much more than those too long and flexible glued to the cap of most liquid eyeliners…
