7 Eyeliner Hacks Everyone Should Know

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

When it comes to a flawless makeup application, there is nothing more challenging than eyeliner. Not only do you have to make sure that your eyeliner is the right shape and size, but you are also tasked with making sure your two eyes match perfectly. Not to mention the tiny little brushes and unforgiving waterproof formulas that we have to work with. This can make application difficult for experts and beginners alike. If you are looking for a few ways to ease the process, here are seven eyeliner hacks that everyone should know.

  1. Use an Angled Brush

If you are using a gel or liquid liner, an angled brush is the perfect tool for an easy application. If your liner doesn’t come with a brush, or if you find the included applicator difficult to use, swap it out for a brush with an angle. These are significantly easier to use when applying a gel or liquid liner and help you to get the application as close to your lash line as possible.

  1. Start With a Pencil

Speaking of getting your liner as close to your lash line as possible, this is one of the biggest errors that you can make when applying eyeliner. When you don’t apply your eyeliner close enough to your lash line, you will see a noticeable gap that can make your liner look sloppy or incomplete. To avoid this, go in first with an eyeliner pencil and sweep it back and forth against your lash line. Then, if you want a shaper look, you can use a liquid or gel liner to create more shape and structure.

  1. Draw an Outline

If you are new to winging out your liner, getting them just right can feel like an impossible task. In fact, even if you do winged liner everyday it can still be tricky to get your eyes to match. One of the best tips for drawing a bold wing is to do an outline first. The key, however, is to do the outline with a non-waterproof liner. This way you have room for trial and error. Keep a Q-tip and some makeup remover handy so you can wipe away any fails and start fresh. Then, once you have the perfect line done in your easy-to-remove liner, you can go back over it with your waterproof liner.

  1. Sharpen Your Wing with Makeup Remover

If you are looking for a razor-sharp line on your wing, the best way to achieve this is with a Q-tip and some makeup remover. Once your wing is applied, using an upward sweeping motion, take your Q-tip and swipe along the bottom of your wing. This will help you achieve the perfect look.

  1. Use a Dark Shadow

If a more natural eyeliner look is what you are after, swap out your eyeliner for a dark eyeshadow. Use your eyeshadow with an angled brush to smudge the shadow into your lash line. This application is not only more forgiving, but it also helps achieve a sultry, smoky eye look. This look is also perfect for those who have limited time to perfect a wing in the mornings. Just smudge on some shadow and you’re good to go!

  1. Set With Shadow

Even if you are only using a liquid or gel liner, don’t overlook the addition of a dark shadow just yet. While dark shadows are great for achieving a smudged eyeliner look, they are also great for setting your liquid or gel liner. Just go over the line you have already created by dabbing an angled brush against your liner. Be careful not to do a smudging motion and stick to just tapping the brush against your lash line. This will help your eyeliner last all day long.

  1. Low on Liner?

If you are running low on your liquid or gel liner, add a saline solution to the container to help you get a few more uses out of it. This is also a good way to thin out thicker gel liners for an easier application if you are looking to achieve a sharper line.

Flawless Eyeliner

We hope you can use some of these tips and tricks the next time you are struggling to apply your eyeliner perfectly. And remember that we all have off days when it comes to applying our makeup, so don’t be hard on yourself if you struggle to get the hang of it. Just keep at it until you find the hack that works best for you! Good luck!

      Wasn’t it SAMYAZA who taught “Women” to wear make-up and look like “WHORES”?????? The BABYLONIAN TALMUD mentions him just once in its writings. The BIBLE states he was the LEADER of a band of FALLING ANGELS called the “WATCHERS”, the “SON’s Of GOD” sound familiar????????? ..Isn’t there a group of so called “CHOSEN ONES” in Israel who consider themselves ABOVE ALL OTHERS and that THEY ALONE ARE THE SON’s and Daughters OF GOD? These “FAKE JEWS” are so ARROGANT they actually THINK they are above all others…….Remember, there was TWO leaders of the falling ones. Most Christians think there is only ONE! AZAZEL is the other. He taught MANKIND to make WEAPONS and breast plates “Armor”. READ THE BOOK OF ENOCH, all the names of the fallen Angels are in there and what they did is all listed. What is occupying Palestine at the moment is PURE EVIL! These are “THOSE THAT CALL THEMSELVES JEWS, BUT ARE OF THE SYNAGOGUE OF SATAN”……KNOW THE TRUTH…NEVER LISTEN TOO A ZIONIST!
