Almost everyone knows those struggles with applying eyeliner, but how can you best apply your eyeliner?
It is often thought that you can put a nice eyeliner by pulling your eyelid tight or keeping your eyelid closed, but this is not the case. When you open your eyes afterwards, the eyeliner has almost disappeared and it no longer looks tight because it disappears into the fine lines. Therefore keep your eyes open and follow the natural shape of the eye rim as much as possible.
First put a very thin line above your eye. Starting in the inner corner of your eye, try to apply the eyeliner as close to the lash line as possible. Try not to immediately put too much pressure on the brush on the brush, otherwise the line will immediately become very thick. If you have put the first line, you can then see for yourself whether you want to make it thicker.
You can apply your eyeliner both before and after your eyeshadow. We do recommend if you are not yet an expert to apply your eyeliner first, a mistake is then slightly easier to correct.
Also with eyeliners you have all different variants, which of course does not make the choice any easier. But what is the difference between a liquid and a gel eyeliner? are you curious about that? Then we have explained that for you below:
Liquid Eyeliner:applying a liquid eyeliner requires some concentration. You can, however, put very tight lines. The disadvantage or an advantage of a liquid eyeliner is that it dries quickly so that you cannot easily correct mistakes, but if you can already draw a line, this may be an advantage. It does, however, remain in place for a long time. Example of a liquid eyeliner: Maybelline Lasting Drama Liquid Eyeliner .
Gel Eyeliner:This requires a little less concentration than with a liquid eyeliner. Gel eyeliner often comes in a jar and is often a bit creamy. You often need a separate eyeliner brush for this. A gel eyeliner has a very thick structure so you can easily apply dark lines. Gel eyeliner also dries less quickly, making it easy to touch up if things go wrong.Example of a Gel Eyeliner: Maybelline Lasting Drama Gel Eyeliner .
Pen eyeliner : super handy if you want to quickly create a wing. But also ideal if you want to apply a subtle line above your eye. The marker often comes in multiple thicknesses and gets thicker from a thin point, just like a pencil. An eyeliner is also liquid, but is distributed by the felt tip. A sticky liner is often less opaque than a jelly or liquid eyeliner and can fade a bit faster. Example of an eyeliner pen: L'Oreal Paris Superliner Perfect Slim Eyeliner .
Eye pencil : not really an eyeliner, but can certainly be used as an eyeliner. You cannot create a clean, accurate wing with an eye pencil. It is very nice with a smokey eye, because you can blur or blend the eye pencil with a brush. This gives the eye pencil an extra nice transition with the eyeshadow for a killer smokey eye look! Example of eye pencil: Max Factor Kohl Crayon Pencil .
Hell yes! Waterproof products ensure that the product remains in place when it becomes damp. Perfect for the long hot summer days! You have waterproof eyeliners in different variants, such as markers with a thick and thin point. The Max Factor Color X-pert Waterproof Eyeliner is highly recommended, it prevents your eyeliner from fading as soon as it gets wet.
Putting a nice line above your eyes is difficult enough, but how can you make the line extra beautiful? We have a number of tips for you below:
Each pair of eyes has the perfect eyeliner - to give your eyes beautiful definition. But for this it is useful if you know what suits your eyes best. That is why we have listed all the different options:
You can make your round eyes look even bigger if you extend the shape a bit more in width. You do this by applying a nice, long wing on the outside of the corner of your eye - also called the cat eye . For this we recommend the L'Oreal Matte Signature Liner . This stem is extra short, lies firmly in the hand and ensures that you can easily set the perfect wing. The eyeliner is waterproof so that the perfect wing stays in place all day long.
You accentuate your almond-shaped eyes if you make the line thicker from the inside to the outside. So make sure you don't use too much eyeliner on the inside of your eyelid (near your nose). Start on the inside of your eyes with a thin line and make it thicker as you work towards the outside of your eyelids. The L'Oreal Perfect Slim Eyeliner is ideal for this, as it has a thin brush tip for a precise line.
With upright eyes, it is also nice to use eyeliner on the lower lash line to improve the symmetry of the eyes. So don't just draw a line on your top lash line, but extend it into the outer corner of the bottom lash line. Ideal for this is the L'Oreal Le Liner Signature , this is a waterproof eye pencil with a twist-up function.
You can optically mask drooping eyelids by drawing only eyeliner in the outer corner of the eye in an upward line for a lifting effect. This makes your eyes look bigger. You can use any eyeliner for this, for example the Maybelline Hyper Precise All Day Liquid Eyeliner .
With both products you can put a line around your eye, but what exactly is the difference between an eye pencil and an eyeliner?
What is a big difference between the two anyway is that an eyeliner is liquid and an eye pencil is solid. Because an eye pencil is fixed, it is much easier to apply than an eyeliner, which requires a lot more concentration. If you are still a beginner with eyeliner, it is therefore better to practice with an eye pencil first. You can also create a thicker and darker line more easily with an eye pencil.
