The Eyeliner Cheet Sheet

There are four most common types of eye liners – pencil, liquid, fluid, and powder. This article will provide a short review of these four products including the benefits and drawbacks of using all these liners.

Pencil Eyeliner:

This is the things you used back when you were in your teens and first began to experiment with cosmetics. It is user friendly and might be manipulated to create tons of different effects. For instance, you can create a daytime appearance by applying clean lines, or you’ll be able to create an evening look by smudging it for the smoky eye effect. It’s possible for you to use it on both your upper and lower lash line, and they usually come in a wide variety of colours. I find they also last fairly long too, you may use it even if it’s merely down to the final stub. The only problem is they have a tendency to smudge (particularly during summer when we sweat more) but a trick to stop that is to implement a neutral color shadow below your lower lash line to consume the oil and/or sweat. I also have a tendency to avoid black pencil liners and go for espresso or dark plum colors, just since I find the black to be pretty overwhelming and will develop a Goth-ish appearance.

Liquid Eyeliner:

Liquid liners are used when you need a spectacular effect, as the colours pigments are pretty intense. But that does not mean they cannot be used for a daytime effect. We recommend you check out this site for more information about no smudge eyeliner.

Liquid liners are either brush-tipped or soft or tough felt-tipped. I personally favor the felt-tip as it’s easier to control. Soft points feel better on the skin around your eyes, but hard points offer more precision, so it really depends upon your inclination. I typically do a little wing at the outer edge of my eyes, and when I use the tough tip I work from the exterior in. Liquid lines are great for creating bigger appearing eyes, especially in the black shade, but I’ve also seen interesting shades like turquoise and gold floating about.

The downside to liquid liners is they are more difficult to make use of than pencils, and they generally tend to run/flake. I have waterproof liners however they nonetheless appear to flake by the ending of the day. But if I just wear for a couple hours in an evening out they always stay very well.

Fluid Liner:

Fluid liners occupies a middle ground between liquid liner and a pencil liner. They come in a little container and are readily appropriate using a level angle brush or a small eyeliner brush. The item lasts quite a while as a tiny bit goes a ways. This type of liner can create either subtle or dramatic effect depending on the way you combine the line by means of your brush. It could be utilized interchangeably with liquid liners. Most of these liners often have lots of staying power, and does not flake or smudge easily.

Powder Eyeliner:

Powder is yet another eyeliner pick, and it offers lots of flexibility in determining the final effect of the liner. It’s possible for you to apply it as a dry powder for a subtle appearance, or wet your brush applicator (I advocate a flat angle one) and apply the shadow for a more dramatic appearances (but not as dramatic as liquid or fluid). It’s possible for you to use a matte colour for a classic day look or a glittery shadow for some night-time glam. You may also use eye shadow to place your liquid eyeliners, which might help prevent the liquid liners from running/smudging.
