6 Ways To Wear Liquid/ Gel Liner

Sunday, March 24, 2013
Classic Thick Flick (my everyday makeup)
The Line (for definition) 
The Cat Eye (going out look)
The Side Flick (to lengthen the eyes)
The Catwalk (for fun)
The Dotted Line (to thicken lashes)

I'm a big fan of liquid liner so much so my everyday makeup look consists of the liquidy black stuff and to be honest I don't look like 'me' with out it. But there is more to liquid/ gel liner than the classic pin-up flick although I'm a big fan of it myself. Teamed with its little helper - mascara, liquid liner can lengthen, thicken and take day makeup to evening eyes.

Playing dot to dot along the lash line can thicken lashes and aid mascara or a thin line stroked across the top can give your eyes more subtle definition and help to make them stand out. It's easy to forget how versatile and helpful liner is when it comes to contouring and changing the eye. Pretty much most adverts promoting liquid or gel liners consist of a thick strong cat eye as well as a model acting bad ass or the opposite... sitting silently in front of a mirror applying the squid ink looking stuff. 

There is no secret or technique when applying liquid liner to gain that perfect line or flick. Yes, there are dozens of step by step's and how to's but honestly its about finding what is easiest for you. I've been applying liquid liner for years and unlike most people I start with the flick, draw a line across and fill in the middle but that's what I've found easiest for me. Just takes practice and making sure you trying out different ways.
