Is anybody else out there as hopelessly terrible at applying eyeliner as I am?!?
If so, this post is for you.
After doing a little research, I realized that there are about a billion and one sites out there with tips and tricks to get the perfectly application. For summer black, the key seems to be creating clean lines for a simple sophisticated look that doesn’t look too messy. Sadly, my middle name is Messymcgee (all one word), and I’m just plain awful at it. Luckily, I came across this little gem during my searching, and I now feel that there may be hope for me yet!
After quite a while of hunting on YouTube through the myriad tutorials available, I came across Bebexo. This talented little lady goes through the basics of applying all three kinds of liner: pencil, liquid, and gel. She also gives you some great products to use that you can find at the drugstore — no expensive products needed for a totally fab look! The best tip I learned was to start at the middle of my eye — how did I not know that?!
She even uses my own personal favorite kind of black eyeliner: Maybelline Eye Studio Gel Eyeliner. This stuff stays on like nobody’s business, even through swimming!! Seriously. I tried. Now I’m going to have to go home and practice getting it to look good!
What kind of liner lady are you? Pencil? Liquid? Gel?
If any of you girls have good tips, post them below!
