Applying eyeliner is one of the most preferred ways to emphasize a woman’s eyes. No matter whether you will use liquid eyeliner or pencil eyeliner you can easily define your eyes and create a classy look. Although most of the women prefer to use pencil eyeliner as it is much easier for them, the liquid eyeliner is also a great choice for the rest of the women. Before you decide you buy liquid eyeliner you should know that it can be very difficult to apply it flawlessly at first as it needs a lot of practice and patience.

Many of the cosmetic brands offer a wide variety of textures, hues and types which are appropriate for the different needs, weather conditions, shape and color of the eyes. As you know there are: liquid eyeliners /that come with a brush and a tube/, pencil eyeliner, powder eyeliner, mousse eyeliners.
Unlike the pencil eyeliner, the liquid eyeliner should be applied only to the upper lash-line because it is very heavy for the lower lashes. Those who prefer the classy look should consider using only pencil eyeliner, as the liquid eyeliner creates a more dramatic and sophisticated look.
Most of the makeup artists advice to apply the liquid eyeliner over the eyeshadows as this way it will stay put on for longer. If you are going to apply an eyeshadow the first thing you should do is to apply an eyeshadow base to avoid smudging and creasing /of course after you have applied your foundation, concealer etc./ Apply the eyeshadows as usual.
Before you begin the application of the eyeliner make sure you have a mild makeup remover and cotton pads in case you make a mistake. It’s essential to shake the tube before you begin the application. Make sure your hand is steady in order to create a flawless line.
The best way to apply liquid eyeliner is to start drawing in the centre of your upper lash-line. If you find drawing a straight line difficult you can use pencil eyeliner and create a few dashes. Then with the point liner brush of the liquid eyeliner try to connect these dashes. Create only a few dashes. Never draw a line with pencil eyeliner and apply liquid eyeliner over it – you can easily ruin the result. Draw the line as close to the lash-line as possible, following the natural curve of your eyelid.
If you want to create a thicker line, build the line gradually very carefully.
Curl your eyelashes with an eyelash curler. Choose black or brown mascara and apply the first coat carefully. After a few minutes apply a second coat. Choose a volumizing or lengthening mascara, depending on your eyelashes. Consider dusting your eyelids with a translucent powder in order to avoid creasing and smudging. Do the rest of your makeup as usual – blush, lipstick, lip gloss, face powder.
