What types of eyeliner are there??
There are different types of eyeliner, depending on how it is applied:
- Eyeliner type Kajal: It is shaped like a pencil and is best for beginners because it is easier to apply than the other types. However, only thin lines are possible with it and it does not last that long.
- Liquid eyeliner: the classic way with a soft brush. It is the most difficult to apply as it requires accuracy and a steady hand. Errors are easiest to see there. You can correct them with ear swabs dipped in micellar or make-up remover.
- Eyeliner with a brush: You can apply powdery eyeliner with a thin make-up brush. The smoky effect is achieved here. You need more experience here
How to best apply the eyeliner?
In order to be able to draw the eyeliner correctly, it is important to have patience and a steady hand. Don’t despair if it doesn’t work out so well at first. In time you will get the hang of it. Some professional make-up artists recommend applying the foundation first, then the eyeliner and finally a few coats of mascara for an expressive look.
The eyeliner can be applied in different ways. You can first apply a thin line at the beginning of the eyelid with a thin brush and then trace it with an eyeliner. Or you can start straight away with the eyeliner by applying several dots and finally joining them together. Of course, you can also draw the eyeliner directly as a thin line, which you then thicken.
Note that thick eyelid lines are not suitable for small eyes, whereas wider eyelids can handle thick eyelid lines. You can omit the eyeliner towards the nose or let it become very thin. This will soften the effect. For a more dramatic look, let the eyeliner sweep up at the outer end.
