Eyeliner is a great way to enhance your eyes and make them more dramatic. Black seems to be the color of preference, but brown is sometimes used for a subtle enhancing of the eyes.
. First: Know that there are three basic types of liners.
Pencil eyeliner is easy to apply, but sometimes doesn’t spread as smoothly or thickly as gel or liquid liners.
Gel liners are matte and glide on easily. They sometimes come in a little pot with a brush.
Liquid liners are used for their precision, and usually come in tubes with a small brush, or “pen-style” with brush tips. They can take some time to dry after applying, though.
Here’s a bit more starter info on each of them, and here’s an in-depth guide.
2. Different color liners can have different effects.
3. The shaky hand struggle is real — but there’s a way to solve it in three easy steps.
1) Sit down.
2) Plant your elbow on a flat surface.
3) Rest your pinky on your cheek. Stabilizing yourself as much as possible = fewer (probably) jerky mess-ups.
