Another post in Makeup Explained – this time it is Eyeliner.

In this series I am explaining different makeup so that you (and I) know exactly what it is and what to use it for)

We will be looking at:

What it is & what it does.

What types exist.

Do you need it & when should you use it.

WHAT IS IT & WHAT DOES IT DO?

An eyeliner is a makeup product that is used to line your eyes (as in draw lines around them) to give different effects (like bigger/smaller eyes).

An eyeliner can compliment almost any eye look because it is so versatile – you may do almost anything you like with it. For example you could make the liner graphic, subtle, winged, dramatic, or coloured.

WHAT TYPES EXIST?

There are a few different types of eyeliner that works mostly the same.

Which one is the best, is up to individual preference, so you do have to try them out to figure out what you like to use the most.

They do also come in almost any colour.

  1. Pencil eyeliner
    Is perhaps the most commonly used because it is easy to use and control.
    It has to be sharpened once in a while just like a pencil, and it has to be sharp enough for you to actually draw accurately with it (be careful not to make it so sharp you prick yourself on it).


  2. Liquid eyeliner
    Can be difficult to apply as it is “slippery”, and you need a steady hand to put it on.
    It is usually very pigmented and is great at making thin, precise lines.
    You do need to give it some time to dry.

  3. Gel/cream eyeliner
    This type comes in a pot that you dip a brush in, and then draw with. These can allow more control over how thick the lines get as you are the one to choose how much product goes on the brush.
    You do need a fairly steady hand for putting this on, as it glides on pretty easy, and it does also need some time to dry.
    This type on eyeliner is especially good for a smokey look as the texture makes it easy to smudge.

  4. Eyeshadow as liner
    Another option is to use eyeshadow as liner.
    It works as a gel or cream eyeliner where you simply dip a stiff brush in the shadow and draw on whatever you want.
    It gives a subtle look; but because of this is also does not last as long as other eyeliners.
    You should not use this one on the waterline, as it will irritate the eyes, and does not stick anyways.

DO I NEED IT & WHEN SHOULD I USE IT?

As I say, well, always; you do not need makeup at all.

If you do enjoy using makeup, I would recommend trying out using an eyeliner, since it is so versatile, and you may do almost anything with it.

You may use it whenever you like as it can be used alone or accompanied by other makeup.

So that was all for eyeliners! If there is some type of makeup you would like explained, tell me in the comments and we will get to it.

I hope you all have a happy life, one day at a time!

What is it & what does it do?

An eyelash curler is a beauty tool usually of metal made with clamps that are meant to squeeze your eyelashes to make them curl and help them look longer, thicker, and fuller

What types exist?

There are not many different types of eyelash curlers. They usually come in metal, but the colour and finish may vary.

Do you need it & when should you use it?

You do not really need an eyelash curler, but it can be a great help if you want to achieve beautiful, long, and full lashes.

It should be used before you put on mascara, to make sure your lashes have the right “form” before using the mascara.

If there is some type of makeup you would like explained, tell me in the comments and we will get to it.
