one- liquid eyeliner comes in a bottle rather like ink, and you must use a separate brush to apply. some come with one. the best result will come from a point liner brush.
two- liquid eyeliner should only be used above the top lashes. [unless you are going for a very harsh, dramatic look] also, it is difficult not to get it in your eye. it is best to use a pencil or eyeshadow under the lower lashes. if you do choose to apply liquid liner below the eyes, remember to use a light touch as harsh lines are unflattering and make you look tired, and the skin below your eyes is very delicate, besides.
three- you do not need to try and paint a continuous line with liquid eyeliner. it is easier to paint small dashes along the lash line, gently adding a stroke every three to four millimetres, and then connect them afterward.
four- if you want a thicker line than this initial thin one, build it up gradually. start at the middle of the lash line and draw towards the outer corner. you can extend the line slightly past the outer corner of your eyelid if you wish.
five- to make your eyes look even better, start thin and then get thick; this gives the look of bigger eyes. for cats eyes, flick the brush at the end of the stroke.
-if you do not have the time to apply your makeup slowly, it is best to simply go without eye makeup. don't worry or feel self-conscious; if you don't work in theatre or in vegas, makeup is never a necessity. moisturizer and some gloss will leave you looking fresh and pulled together when you're in a hurry.
-if you do poke yourself in the eye, it is best that you rinse your eye out and gently wipe the entire eye area clean. If you have injured yourself, apply slight pressure with a damp, warm washcloth to your [closed] eye until the pain subsides.
-if you find you really REALLY can't apply liquid eyeliner, why not try pencil?
-i've found that it's easier to apply liquid eyeliner when your eye isn't closed all the way.
-if you do something wrong, keep a cotton bud with some make-up remover on the end or a make up corrector pen to clean up and mistakes! the universal solvent, water, can also be used if no eye makeup remover is on hand. olive oil works as well, but remember to remove it thoroughly [accomplished easily by wiping it off with dry q-tips] before continuing makeup application.
-if you do make a mistake while applying liner in either pencil or liquid form, then it is easily corrected; use a q-tip and some eye makeup remover to erase your mistake and start over.
-keep one eye open. obviously the one that isn't at work. it's easier, and in the end, you'll have a nice straight line.
-practice makes perfect. rehearse your liner application techniques and with time, you will be able to apply liner like a pro!
-liquid eyeliner isn't for everyone. some people ARE allergic, so be sure you aren't before using it. if you don't, you could end up with a swollen eye!
-first timers should begin with natural and universally flattering colors, but feel free to experiment with brighter colors, for example - green eyeshadow with neon liner!
-try applying your liquid liner after you have put one thin coat of mascara on, it helps give you a straight line, when you are done putting your eyeliner on, then you can finish your mascara.
-be careful when you have just put the liquid liner on the top eye; if you blink too soon, you will get small horizontal streaks across your eyelids, which is NOT pretty.
