Eyeliner comes in pencil or liquid forms. Powder eye liners are also popular which can be applied with an eyeliner brush. Regardless of which type you choose, apply the eyeliner as close to the lash line as possible. Choose an easy to use and apply eyeliner like the pen or brush. For a sophisticated make-up you can then add a key of eyeshadow of color preferably, purple, maroon, gray even gilded for the winter.

Every girl has her ticket item makeup product. Some gals need only gloss, while others can't go without mascara. As for myself, it has to be liquid eye liner. Liquid eye liner provides a dramatic look, when done properly, whether it's worn as part of an everyday style or a special night out.

Apply Liquid Eyeliner

Liquid eyeliner comes in a bottle rather like ink, and you must use a separate brush to apply. The best result will come from a point liner brush.

It is natural to close your eye as you draw the line, but if you keep it open, it will actually make it easier to follow the curve of your lid and thus have a straighter line.

You do not need to try and paint a continuous line with liquid eyeliner. It is actually easier to pain a few small dashes onto the lash line, eg. Inner corner, middle and outer corner, then go back and connect them.

Keep your eye partially open so that you can more easily follow the contour. To get your line as close to the lash line as possible, lift your eyelid from under the arch of your eyebrow instead of tugging the skin off to the side, as is common practice. When you're just starting out, you needn't worry about getting the line straight in one fell swoop. Draw three fine dashes, one on this inside, middle, and outside corner, and connect them.

Use your fingers (on the hand your not using to apply the liner) to pull your eyelid flat. The goal is to eliminate creases along the lash line, which can cause turbulence and frustration.

Tilt your head back a little and apply as close to the lash line as humanly possible, otherwise you get a weird blank space.

Always start from the inside and stroke outward in one fell swoop. Don't try to do it in portions, just go for it-it's silly, but it's all about believing in yourself.

Taking your opposite hand, hold your eyeliner applicator between your thumb and forefinger. Starting at the inner corner of your eye, slowly draw a thin line across your eyelid. Make sure you get as close to your lash line as possible. To complete your look, extend past your lash line. This is great if you're trying to achieve the cat eye look.

Instead of trying to apply it all in one long line, it works best if you actually draw several smaller lines. However, as you practice more, you will find the best method for you.

Make sure you let the eyeliner dry thoroughly before applying more eye makeup or even blinking.
