Eyeliner is a makeup that we all love to wear to look good. Extremely feminine, the eyeliner is a magnetic and glamorous look, but still need to know how to apply it. Pencil, liquid or cream eyeliner, brush or felt, Cosmo gives you all the beauty tips and tricks for a successful day or evening makeup.

This year, the eyeliner is back. Sexy, glamorous, transcendent look, the eyeliner is your new ally for daytime or evening makeup. Not easy, however, to successfully pose the eyeliner.

Overflows, shakes, pies, the eyeliner can quickly turn into a headache. To avoid cold sweats and other discomforts, Cosmo gives you all the tips to put your eyeliner.

Apply your eyeliner, instructions:

To begin, sit down. It’s even easier if you can rest your elbows on a flat surface. Arrange to stretch the skin of your eyelid. Either you lower your eyes and raise your head a little; either you hold your head straight and you raise your eyebrows.

In both cases, try to keep your eye open, it will be easier to follow the curve of the eyelid and draw a straight line!

Objective: to draw a line as close as possible to the root of the eyelashes. For this, start with the inner corner of the eye to the middle. Take a break, if necessary, then resume to the outer corner of the eye.

Finally, open the eye and apply the eyeliner on the outer part so that the trace follows the normal curve of the eye. To correct a sad eye, you finish your line by moving it up slightly.

Do not forget to wait a few seconds before lifting the eye for optimal drying. In case of small misfires, do not panic. Take a cotton swab, wet it or soak it with make-up remover, tighten your eyelid and remove the excess with the cotton swab.

What line width?

We tend to say that thick lines harden the look while fine lines intensify and enlarge your eye. But it is above all a question of taste and face!

If you are not very skilled, first draw a small line with a well-cut kohl pencil. Then, all you have to do is go over with your liquid eyeliner or cream.

In order, apply eye shadow, eyeliner and mascara . For small eyes, apply eyeliner to enlarge or to intensify.

For a smoky look, apply a black pencil line along the lower lashes. Eyeliner is mandatory for false eyelashes.

We dare glitter or colored eyeliner for party or party make-up.

Choosing the right eyeliner formula

Makeup brands offer different formulas that allow you to choose the one that suits you best. Eyeliner pencil, felt or brush, eyeliner cream or liquid, each his method.

The liquid brush is the eyeliner par excellence. It allows a fine and precise layout and can be counted on a long lasting outfit. Only problem: its application must be controlled.

Easier to apply, felt or pen eyeliner is more popular with novices but offers a less precise pattern than eyeliner with a brush.

The cream eyeliner is used with a beveled brush. The latter allows a more worked and thicker layout. The texture of the potted eyeliner is thicker, resembling moistened powder.

Finally, pencil eyeliner is often the most common. Easy to apply, the pencil offers a flexible layout even if it is less precise.
