I can't think of a single eye shape, colour or size that doesn't suit top-liner. It instantly adds depth and definition to your eyes. Ok, "that's great", you're thinking, "but we're not all make-up artists". Pfft! Of course we are! With a little direction and a helping hand with technique, you can be your own make-up artist :)
So here is my step-by-step beginners guide to liquid liner application...
1. The Body Shop Liquid Liner in black (I love this one as it goes on and stays on! Also a nib instead of a brush makes application so much easier)
1. Tip the end of the liner nib into the corner of your eye and make sure the entire nip sits exactly at the same angle as your eye lid. Press the nib onto your lid gently, using the whole side of the nib and then away. This is your starting point!
Now take the nib and instead of pointing it inward toward the eye as we've been doing, point it outward from the very end of your line toward the end of your eyebrow. Press the nib gently down once. Using the nib in this way allows the whole side of the nib to draw you a perfect line and makes things to much easier.
You've done it!! Now throw on some concealer under your eye and mascara on your lashes and your look is complete :)
No one ever said that top liner had to be done in one fast swoop or in one go! Take your time and do it all in steps.
As you do this more and more you'll find that instead of 'dabbing' between the dots, you can sweep the nib across your lid. You'll also find that eventually you'll need no dots at all!
Give it a try - be your own liner pro!
