So! On the topic is Makeup, we will be looking at Lip Liner today.
Because makeup can be a jungle to wrap your head around, we are doing this series, and we are looking closely at different types of makeup products; what it is & does, what types exist, and if you need it & when you should use it.
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.
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).
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.
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.
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!
