Black Eye Liner. Love it or Hate it?

We have all had that one time when we applied “black eye liner” and within 2 hours it was all under neath our eyes, we look in the mirror and we looked like a mixture between a racoon and someone who hadn’t slept for days or both haha.  I have tried many eye liners on the market and some of them have claimes they are are ” water proof, non smudging, non moving etc”. Some of them lived up to their claim, some unfortunately are in the bottom of my makeup drawers collecting dust.  Here are my top 3 liners in all formulas

 

1) Eye Pencil-There are the pencil formulas and there are the ” kohl” formulas.  I personally think the kohl formulas are better for ” smudging” as they are softer so they are perfect for creating that based for a smokey eye. I love Makeup Forever Aqua Eyes Black Eye liner as its not too soft and not too stick, you can apply this on top, bottom or even in the waterline. Make sure you sharpen it to get a more crisp line

2)Gel Pot- Gel Pot liners can be applied with a angled brush for that “cat eyed” look, dip your brush into the pot, take off the excess and apply it close to your lash line and flick outwards.  With the angles of your brush you can manipulate the product to get the liner as thin or as thick as you want.  Black track has a quick drying time so you may have to move fast, remember practise makes perfect 😉

3)Liquid Eye Liners- I used to hate them as the liner would end up all over my lids and when I would open my eyes it was a HUGE mess, it used to take me 15 mins to just to apply one eye.  I used learnt to love liquid as you dont need a brush or a sharpener. Tip: Just remember to tilt your head  all the way up and look down. This eye liner drys fast so it shouldn’t smudge all over your eye lids =)
