Few things in the beauty world are more frustrating than the moment when you ruin your entire eye look with one poorly applied stroke of eyeliner, these are four tips that will surely change that.
1.Heat It Up
Have a pencil that feels like sandpaper scraping across your eyelid? Not ideal, to say the least. Try heating up the tip with a hairdryer to soften the pencil and make application easier. "Don't hold it there for a long amount of time,". Two or three seconds will suffice to make the pencil soft enough to glide across your waterline.
2.Mascara as Eyeliner
Worst-case scenario: You’re getting ready in a pinch and find you have no eyeliner whatsoever, just mascara. Don't worry, you can work with this. Use the mascara to line your eyes like you would with eyeliner. Simply apply the mascara super-close to the lash line, shimmying it up against the skin to create a smudge-y line. If you have a brush, use that—you can drag the brush along the mascara wand and apply the product like a gel liner.
3.Start on the Outside
To achieve a cohesive line naturally, you should start at the outer corner of your eye and work your way in. "Create the shape that you want your liner to go instead of just winging it,". This way, you can visualize the way you want your liner to look at the very start—winged, thick, or super-fine, however you're feeling that day—and then go the rest of the way in.
4.Use A Business Card
If you don't want to spend a ton of time drawing your cat eye over and over in front of the mirror, you should use a business card to line up your flick. Just press the card down from the corner of your eye pointing outward to the end of your brow and trace your liner along the edge and you are ready to go.
