Liquid Eyeliner 101

Hey Everyone! 

One of my most commonly asked questions is on how to conquer liquid liner. Trust me, it isn't easy. I wish I could say that it was, however there are still days (more often than not!) that even I have difficulties. While practice makes perfect, there are some tips and tricks to assist you. Follow these tips, and you will be a Liquid Liner Pro in no time! 

Tips on how to get Puuuurfect Cat Eyeliner

  • Try connecting little dashes instead of sweeping on one perfect line all at once
  • Start with a fine line on the inner corner and more thick on the outer corner
  • Finish with a little flick at the end of the line that goes in the same direction as your lower lash
  • Using a liquid liner with built in felt tip can sometimes be hard to control. Instead, try using an angled brush to apply the eyeliner.
  • Personally, I avoid liquid liner on the lower lash because it can look super harsh. Instead, opt for darker eyeshadow powder or smudged pencil liner which looks more smokey
  • If you make a mistake, dip a small tipped concealer brush into some foundation and use it like an eraser
Liquid Liner For Your Eye Shape!

Here are some guidelines to follow when using liquid liner, depending on your beautiful eye shape that will really make them (and their shape!) stand out

Small Eyes • Keep the line thin (or it will make your eyes small)
Big Eyes • Draw a thicker liner (to maximize those peepers)
Hooded Eyes • Once applied, keep looking down until its dried
Wide-Set Eyes • Thicker on the inside corner to draw eyes inward
Close-Set Eyes • Start lining in the middle of the lid and put a wing on it
