Have you ever found yourself looking at models in magazines and asking yourself why your black eyeliner doesn’t look the same? While it’s hard to say if there’s really a definitive “right” way to apply eyeliner, it wouldn’t hurt to pick up a few tips to fine-tune your look. Here are some tips on how to revamp your eyeliner application technique.
1. Tilt your chin up.
Redbook magazine recommends tilting your chin up while you’re applying the eyeliner to ensure that you have a good angle. Doing so can also expose more of your face to your light source, making the process easier.
2. Don’t fear slipping up!
If you mess up, there’s always a makeup sponge or cotton swab that you can use to remove any excess that may be taking away from your gorgeous look. Dab the edges with makeup remover to efficiently eliminate any lingering eyeliner.
3. Know what you’re using.
If you’re still using the same eyeliner pencil that’s been re-sharpened 12 times since you bought it years ago, it’s time to upgrade! BABOR Liquid Eyeliner is one option that won’t run or smudge, and it makes the application process simple.
