Hello lovely people! I get a lot of comments from people around town and here on manzanita about my eye makeup. Liquid eyeliner seems to be one of those things that if you are not comfortable with it, then you are terrified of it!
I grew up watching my mother use it everyday. Some of my earliest memories are of watching her in the reflection of the mirror. She was always so good applying makeup, a perfect flick of her wrist and a thin winged line of black sat on the top of her eyelid, or at least thats how I remember it.
I started practicing from a young age and eventually became confident in the skill. Still, when I am running late for work or just don't feel like being so careful with the application, this technique comes in handy!
-First you want to start off with a thin line, then push down on the brush gradually as you slide the brush to end of your lid.
-Once you get there you can go back in with the brush and extend the line past the corner of your lid(as shown in the 4th image) it almost has a little cleopatra style.
-After that, you'll want to wet the tip of your q-tip and place it at the edge of your line, slowly bring the q-tip down in an angle until you reach the corner of your eyelid.
That's that! You can touch up as needed. This technique should give you a nice thick winged look.If you have never played with liquid eyeliner I hope this motivates you to give it a shot! It is one of my staples and I think it creates such a lovely effect.
Hope your week is going well and let me know if you have any questions!
