Apply Liquid Eyeliner
Edited by Hotelier, Amanda, Eng
Hello, and thank you for watching VisiHow. In today's tutorial, I will show you how to apply a liquid eyeliner. For this tutorial, I will be using a Make Up Forever matte black liner called Ink Liner. I like this model the best, because it has a firm brush that bends slightly just at the tip.
Open the eyeliner and look at the brush. There is more color on the brush than just what is on the tip. When we start, we will start by applying the liner from the center of the eye, moving outward. At the very center of the eye, above the iris, we can have a thicker line than what we want for the corners.
Slightly and gently pull the skin around the eye outward. This tightens the eyelid a bit.
Angle the brush horizontally along the lashline.
Begin from the center of the eye, keeping as close to the lashline as possible. Use small strokes, rather than one long line.
If desired, extend the line slightly past the eye in the outer corner. This creates a winged effect.
Angle the brush along the lashline from the inner corner.
Draw a very thin line from the inner corner up to meet the line in the center. Remember to use small lines, rather than one long line.
Trace the line with small movements to clean it up.
Repeat the process on the other eye. Start from the center and work outwards.
Add a wing to match the other wing.
Start from the inner corner and work into the center. Join the two lines.
Trace the line where needed to smooth it out.
Sit back and examine the results. Make sure to make a normal, relaxed facial expression. It can be helpful to look at the results from a regular, head-on angle, so it helps to use a mirror that is at a natural angle, parallel with the face.
