my favorite way to apply eyeliner
Is your skin dull and resembling the Sahara desert? Me too. Here’s what to try.
My lipstick is Tatin by Bite.
I can’t remember the last time I applied eyeliner without using an angled brush pressed into a cream or stick eyeliner/shadow. I love the precision and how fast it is. My only complaint is that it dirties up a brush that needs to be cleaned, but it’s so worth it. And I’ve found that if I wipe my brush against a makeup wipe, the liner won’t get too dry and clumpy, and I can reuse it again the next day.
My angled brush, though, was a touch too big to get a tight line of liner, so I used a gift card to Sephora last week and found the tiniest little eyeliner brushes. And they were 50% off at the time!
My favorite is this angled liner brush. It’s natural to hold, and allows you to get the product super close to the base of your lashes.
I found a few others, at various price points, to look into! I’ve only tried the two from Sephora, but I really love Sonia Kashuk makeup brushes so I’m sure those are fantastic as well.
And my eyeliner product of choice these days is the Bobbi Brown Long-Wear Cream Shadow Stick in either Bark or Rich Caviar. It’s creamy and lives up to the long-wear name. I think some of the lighter shades could be really beautiful eyeshadow colors, but I’m not a huge fan of stick eye products other than liners!
Have you tried applying eyeliner like this? You really should. It may seem like it takes longer, but there is so much less “clean up” around a messy line from a liner that drags that it ends up being pretty quick!
