Useful Tips for People Who Suck At Eyeliner
Last night, while I was streaming live on my Happy Mum Happy Child Facebook page, someone commented on how amazing my eyeliner was (seriously made my night, thank you).
However, I LAUGHED AND LAUGHED because about 20 mins prior to going live, I GOOGLED how to apply eyeliner.
I am USELESS when it comes to make-up. Absolutely useless. And last night I felt tired, and haggard, so I put makeup on to make me feel better / hide the tiredness.
During this time, I found this Buzzfeed article that helped me IMMENSELY.
I am no makeup artist. I can barely draw a stick figure, let alone lines on my eyes. So I read the above, digested it, and then changed the following in my eyeliner habits:
- Rested my elbow on a surface, instead of just trying to draw it on mid air
- Didn’t pull my eyelid when applying the eyeliner
- Used concealer to hide the mistakes (and there were still a few)
- Used a liquid eyeliner
I have gotten used to using a liquid eyeliner over the years, mainly because trying to use a pencil always hurts my eyelids.
Do you have any tips or tricks when it comes to eyeliner?
