While kohl liners are known to smudge (that’s part of their appeal!), girls looking for a stay-put liner may want to consider liquid liners, which will stay in place during a night on the town and a nine-hour work day. Applying the long-lasting liquid may seem daunting at first, but with a few expert tips, any woman can pump up their lash line like a pro.
Makeup artist Pat McGrath, who regularly paints the faces for fashion shows in New York, Milan and Paris, divulged her liquid-liner secrets with Allure magazine. A steady hand is key when creating a flawless look, and McGrath suggests that women rest their elbows on a table and keep a light yet firm grip on the applicator.
To best enhance your eyes, pay attention to their natural shape. According to the beauty expert, if your eyes are close together, leave the inner corner liner-free and extend the line just beyond the edge of the lash line. Those with wide-set eyes should do the opposite, and line eyes to the inside corner while not extending past the outer corners.
Women ready to try this product can use BABOR Liquid Eyeliner, a high-pigment formula, available in colors made to match BABOR Long Lash Mascara.
