Eyeliner is a girl’s best friend. It is the essential part of any makeup routine. And while it is an essential part, it is also one tricky job. Applying eyeliner requires a steady hand to avoid smudging or over applying. It can make or break the whole look. From not knowing the correct way to apply eyeliner to not buying the right eyeliner for yourself, there are some mistakes that you might be committing. We’ve got you covered, though!
1. Not knowing the right eyeliner to buy.
There are sooo many types of eyeliners out there. There are liquid eyeliners, gel eyeliners, kohl pencil eyeliners, and many more! It is important to do your research to find the kind that works best for the look you’re trying to achieve. For example, a liquid eyeliner is an ideal option if you’re looking for long wear. Be sure to purchase a brush tip liquid eyeliner if you’re after a close-to-lash-line look.
2. Not using an eyeshadow primer.
To prevent your liner from smudging and making you look like a racoon, invest in an eyeshadow primer. An eyeshadow primer helps keep your eye makeup intact and prevents it from bleeding.
3. Stretching skin while applying your eyeliner.
Yes, this is a big mistake. You should never stretch your skin while applying your liner. Why? Well, releasing your stretched skin might give you fine liner lines because the skin gets wrinkled. You end up nailing the art of smudging your liner.
4. Using your eyeliner on your lower lid.
Please keep your eyeliner away from your lower lid. Try using a Kohl pencil instead.
