These are ideas that’ll make you look good and will definitely help you save so much time and effort. So check them out and let me know what you think!
Use a Spoon to Perfect Your Eyeliner
Turns out that your spoon is not just great for your kitchen, it can also be used as a guide for the perfect eyeliner flick. Wanna learn how? Start by lining up the straight handle underneath the outer corner of your eye to create the sharp and straight underside of your flick, and then use the curved head to trace from the pointed tip back towards your lash line. Then just fill in the outline and you’re done.
Clean Up with Cotton Buds
In case you draw your flick too thick or crooked, don’t smudge or rub it with your finger. Just use some cotton buds. Dip the pointed end into the water or makeup remover and then swipe it on the excess eyeliner and leave a clean and sharp line behind.
Try Sticky Tape
If you want to have the perfect cat eye flick, get a snippet of tape, place it alongside your eye, and use a template. Apply your eyeliner and let any mistakes slip straight onto the tape rather than on your skin. Peel after and all unwanted liner will be taken off with it.
Get the Perfect Wing by Connecting the Dots
Take the tip of your eyeliner and create a line of dots across your lash line, then all you have to do is join them up. This will instantly give you a perfect wing eyeliner look.
Say No to Black Eyeliner
If you want to stand out from the crowd and look amazing, skip the overly used black eyeliner and try the other colors. Get the grey shade, it’s actually very flattering on aging eyes as it’s less harsh and provides a more subtle line to keep eyes looking defined, but still big and youthful. Likewise, brown is a great option for a more natural, daytime look. Experiment and know what works best for you.
Make Your Own Gel Eyeliner
Instead of buying those expensive gel eyeliner, why not make your own and save so much time and money. All you have to do is melt your eyeliner pencil with a lighter and apply it with a small brush. The gel will be much easier to apply than the liquid especially if you want to create a very thick line.
Though applying eyeliners might seem daunting at first, thankfully with these tips and hacks you’ll save so much time and effort and eventually become a pro. So apply a few of these hacks and you’ll look good throughout the day. Let me know what you think!
