I might as well admit it: I am lacking in the liquid-liner-application-skills department. I just need more practice (and the new MAC Superslick liners look so cool, I’m motivated to work on it).
While I was swatching the Superslick liners, I overheard a tip that intuitively made so much sense that I thought, “Of course I knew that… did I know that?”
A makeup artist was telling a customer to apply liquid liner from the outside of the eye toward the inner corner. You want your eyeliner to be a bit thicker toward the outer corner (mimicking the distribution and length of “ideal” lashes), and whether you’re using a tiny brush, felt tip pen, or delicate sponge tip, it’s going to deposit the most product on first touch — so of course you’d want to start at the outside.
I just thought it was worth mentioning.
