I have spent a lot of time talking about some of the best mascara brands on the market, but I don’t want to neglect the other part of our fabulous looks – eyeliner! Applying eyeliner properly is almost as important as which type and brand eyeliner you use. Almost. Being able to apply eyeliner correctly over and under your eyes is an art form learned with much patience and practice. As women know, you can accentuate your eyes more naturally or go for a dramatic look. It does not matter if you use liquid eyeliners, pencil eyeliners or even cream eyeliners you can still go for any look you want!
Best Eyeliner Reviews
As far as choosing the best eyeliner for you it will again depend on the look you’re going for! There are pencil eyeliners, liquid eyeliners, cream eyelinersSome of the looks used with eyeliners are the cat eye, smokey eye, natural look.
My experience has been that liquid eyeliners are the best for achieving the cat eye look. You start with a thin line near the corner of the eye which becomes thicker at the outer corners going past the lash line and curving upward.( think Taylor Swift!) For the smokey eye, I find pencil liners are easiest to use.
A quick guide for the smokey eye is to first use an eyelid primer to control oiliness, use a lighter base eyeshadow up to the brow then line your eyes with your favourite eyeliner with the thicker part of the line in the centre of your eye. Next, put a darker colour eyeshadow on your lids up to the crease then SMUDGE (using a Q-Tip of your finger) until the eyeliner is blended with the eyeshadow. For any look, you want there are so many incredible eyeliner colours to choose from! I especially like the ones made specifically for your particular eye colour. Please let us know your preferences!
Liquid Eyeliners Reviews
Although there are pencil and cream eyeliners that are gorgeous when used, liquid eyeliners deserve a special mention since they were the first type of eyeliner ever used. And liquid eyeliners still to this day have a unique quality and look that produces the best results for any version of the cat eye or any dramatic look. It does take practice to accurately line your eyes with liquid eyeliner. You do need a steady hand so if you need extra help try propping your elbow on a table to steady yourself! But the results are so worth it! There is no other eyeliner that can give you a cool retro look like old time movie stars ( Marilyn Monroe anyone!).
Those iconic actresses from the golden days of Hollywood looked so sexy with their eyes lined in black liquid eyeliner! Liquid eyeliner is just an excellent choice for any look that requires precision that is just not possible to achieve with pencil or cream eyeliners. And of course, liquid eyeliners come in so many beautiful colours that you can mix old world glamour with new fresh colours!
