Eyeliner Tricks For Your Perfect Makeup

Concealer Keeps Eyeliner in Shape
Concealer can be a great helper when eliminating dark circles under eyes but it can also keep your eyeliner looking sharp.
Eyeshadow Keeps Pencil Eyeliner From Fading
…at least for a couple of hours. Eyeshadow can act as a primer that absorbs excess oils and moisture from your lids that make the pencil eyeliner melt and smudge. If you don’t like liquid eyeliners this can be a go trick for you. Also if you apply eyeshadow on top of your liner it will not only prolong its life but will also add a hint of different color.
Dropped eyeliner can be used in so many different ways. I have a bit of heavy eyelids and the whole line doesn’t work for me so I start drawing it almost at the middle of the upper eyelid. For a doe-eyed look though try the dropped line on your lower lid in combination of the whole line on your upper lid.
Use Cutip For Perfect Wings
Cutips can not only help you erase any mistakes but they can be very useful in creating a perfect wing. I discovered this trick when I used the cutip to correct my eyeliner and what I ended up, when I tried to erase the unsightly flick, was a perfect sketch line. Since the cutip did not pick up all of the product it created a perfect flick I needed. Draw the line all the way up to the outer corner of the eye and use a slightly moist cutip as if it was a pencil to finish your flick. Then fill in the sketch line with more color.
Don’t Stretch Lids During Application
This. If you were trying to get a perfect wing all this time but couldn’t, it was probably because you stretched the skin during application.
