Get the Look: Liquid Eyeliner Video

Follow these steps to apply liquid eyeliner with ease.

© 2011 Copyright Notice


If you're looking for a dramatic look this season, try liquid eyeliner, but be careful, application can be tricky. With a steady hand, and a little finesse, you'll be able to line your eyes with ease. The first thing you'll need is an eyeliner brush. Choose one that is small with bristles at an angle. This will help you get a clean line. Gel liners are a bit more forgiving than traditional liquid eyeliners. The creamy texture won't bleed into fine lines. It dries faster than liquid liner. Applying liquid eyeliner is a bit like drawing. You want to make sure your moves are exact and precise. Keep your eyes open when applying. Otherwise, your line will look uneven. Apply by drawing three dashes. One on the outer corner, one in the middle and one at the inside corner of your eye. Then go back and connect the dashes for a smooth line. After you have the base line, build up the outer line by using the eyeliner brush. Extend the line slightly beyond the eye. Since your eyeliner is now very dramatic, soften the look a bit. Choose an eyeshadow in a similar shade to your liquid liner. Using a brush, smudge the shadow over the lash line. This is also a good way to correct any mistakes. Before you know it, you'll be a liquid liner pro.
