HOW TO MASTER THE CLASSIC LIQUID LINER


ZOEMAX2

Mastering the classic liquid liner in just a few fool proof steps…

Let’s be honest, unless you have the steady hands of a surgeon, mastering the ‘liquid liner’ can be a seriously shaky experience. Not only do you have to get the graduation in the thickness of the line but you have to get it STRAIGHT & EVEN! Well here’s a technique and a Maxmade edit of liquid liners that’s going to blow all of those problems out of the water….

Step 1; Take a 2 inch piece of sticky tape (it doesn’t matter what type as long as it’s sticky) and press it onto the back of your hand a few times to dull some of it’s stickiness.

Step 2; Line the edge of the sticky tape up with the outer corner of the eye – just under the bottom lash line – and just below the end of your brow. Note; If you want your feline flick to have less of a flick, line the tape lower, say with your temple or top of your ear. Note: as always, pre-curl your lashes before moving on to Step 3! 

Step 3; To avoid the liquid liner from smudging and getting the perfect thickness from beginning to end, use a felt tipped, quick dry liquid lining pen. Holding the pen upright just like you would with a normal pen, start by placing the pointy end of the felt tip deep in the inner corner of the lash line. Then, as you drag the felt tip pen slowly along your lash-line, start to lay the pen down making the line thicker as you near the end of the lashes. Then, as the pen leaves the lashes and runs along the tape, lift the pen more upright again so the line gets thinner finishing with a perfectly lined eye! Note; Don’t worry if you get any liquid on the tape, it’s just going to be peeled off.

Step 4, Repeat on the other side before you PEEL & REVEAL!

Maybelline Graphic Master Liner in Bold Black

The newest of it’s kind, Maybelline Graphic Liner leads the market in a new wave of liners that pretty much mimics the technology and success behind the famous Artline Texter. The angled felt tip gives you what I would describe as one of the most desirable advantage points, to creating a precise line.

Kat Von D Tattoo Liner

Like a ‘Tattoo’ Kat Von D’s liner is one of the longest lasting liquid lining pens I have used. What interests me is the way it goes on. It’s quite sheer, or even a little watery, but as soon as it goes down it thickens and dries within seconds. Whether I’m doing a graphic liner or wanting to push liquid into the lash – to thicken the base of my lashes – the long fine brush tip does all the work!

Introducing Le Métier De Beauté Precision Liquid Eyeliner

What makes this liquid liner stand out from the pack is the density of the liquid and the distance in which it holds. A rich black ink dispenses on touch-down and dries pretty much instantly, without bleeding, fading or further more cracking & flaking when you reapply to fill in any gaps or thicken the line.

    I always hated the stickiness left on your skin when using sticky tape, but dulling the stickiness before placing it on the face makes so much more sense. Thanks for the tip! Lou x
