Hope everyone had a wonderful Holiday. I got to spend Thanksgiving with my brother and his family and my mom; then wrapped up the weekend with friends. I am one blessed chick. So now that we've all eaten our faces off and probably had one to many cocktails, let's find a way to brighten up our eyes!
I've been asked a few questions about eyeliner types so I'm going to give you the low-down on some of my favorites!
In a nutshell, there are three main types of eyeliners: Pencil, Liquid, and Gel. Pencil is easiest to use and great for lining your eyes' inner rims. Liquid is the way to go for a precise cat-eye. Gel liner is easier to use than liquid--it's good for dotting between lashes.
Here are a few more tips:
*Always apply eyeliner before your mascara. If you try to line after mascara, you'll end up with a case of lashes clumps.
*Lining Physics 101: The thinner and sharper the pencil tip, the more precise the line. The fatter and duller the top, the smudgier the line.
*Pencil liner gone all stubborn and hard to apply? Blast the top with your hair dryer for a second; the color will glide right on.
*When applying liquid or pencil liner, avoid perfection panic by applying in small strokes, like you're connecting little dashes.
*Gel eyeliner is easier to apply than liquid but offers a similar finish. Wet a thin eyeliner brush and drag it through the gel eyeliner. Wait a second so it's not super-wet, then stroke it along the upper lash line. Easy, dreamy! Gel liner is creamier than other liners so it adds a touch of hydration to the lash line; ideal for the ladies with dry skin.
For eyes that pop, go for my "opposites attract" technique:
- To make green eyes really sparkle, apply a plum liner.
- For radiant blue eyes, use brown liner.
- To intensify brown eyes, try navy liner along the upper lash line.
- Hazel eyes look golden when you apply forest-or jade-green liner along the upper lash line
