My good friend Morgan Wilson is the one that challenged me in this area. Morgan is not afraid of anything. Morgan is a girly girl to the max. Morgan works in Nashville doing makeup for famous country singers. Morgan says there is nothing to be afraid of when it comes to liquid eyeliner. We shall see if Morgan is right.
First of all, you always apply the eye shadow first. I used to think that the eyeliner was the first step. I was very wrong. Always apply the eyeshadow first. Don't forget haha. Then its eyeliner time!!
Step 1: Use a freshly-sharpened black eyeliner pencil to draw a thin line across your lash line. Morgan said that her personal favorite is MAC's smolder.
The line should be as close to your eyelashes as possible.
Step 2: Using a liquid liner with a thin felt-tip, thinly trace the pencil line, beginning at the inside corner. I used Covergirl liquid eyeliner.
Pulling your eye tight with the hand you don't write with (if you're left handed, use your right) trace along the pencil line with the hand you write with for the best control. The area of skin around your eye is extremely sensitive so don't pull hard.
Step 3: You should now have perfectly straight eyeliner (on your 5th or 6th try) do not give up the first 4 tries...it takes practice. Now apply mascara and voila, you have perfectly defined eyes!
Girly girls are not afraid of liquid eyeliner, so practice practice and conquer your fears with me. :)
