It is a pen like liquid liner which gives more precision while applying. Liquid liners are best to give that dramatic effect or to draw a very thin line, but is not easy to apply. With this liner the tip is like a nib of the pen and you just have to draw however you like it.

How I like it :

I am on the fence with this one.

  1. I like the application part. It is comparatively easy to apply but not so easy as it looks like.
  2. Perfect for winged liners.
  3. Pigmentation is good.
  4. Stays on for almost 2-3 hrs when you are indoors.
  5. If you have dry lids then as the products dries it shrinks the skin, causing a bit of irritation.
  6. Smudge proof

  • The one most important thing I didn’t like is, it is not water proof as it claims, it comes off even a single drop. When You step out into sun or sweat you get the owl eyes. This is a good product if you stay indoors or in air conditioned rooms.

Foundations: Foundations and concealers fall in this category. In the world of BB creams, Foundation still plays an important role in make up routine. It is good to own 2 shades of foundation. One, that absolutely suits your skin color and the other a shade darker for those tanned days. Pick a foundation which suits your needs.

Okay this is where we go crazy, I gave away so many lipsticks because no way i was going to use them soon. I am not going to say anything here. You can either have one of each kind like the lipstick/gloss/pot/balm etc., or just get one lipstick and gloss.

If your everyday make up look is minimal then just get one of each part. If you experiment with your looks then you can pick one of each kind available.

Remember, Do not buy products if you dont use them. Because the shell life for these products differ and surprisingly less.

Eyeliner Trick

Good to be back after a long vacation. And I am sharing a very useful tip for applying eye liner. I learnt this trick say about 3 years ago from Michelle Phan’s Video tutorial (you can check her videos on Youtube). I used to follow her earlier and loved her make up tricks and looks. This is one of those tricks I picked up from her.

What you need:

Eyeliner (Any kind. I picked the liquid eye liner)

Steady Hand.

Prep your eye.

Now take the eyeliner of your choice and draw a dotted line over your eyelid as shown .edited3

Now connect the dots to make a line.

Using this as the reference line you can adjust the thickness or the length of the line.

Repeat the same on the other eye.

I have not applied anything on the eye except for the eyeshadow and the liner for the purpose of the post. You can curl the lashes and apply mascara and you done.

Never use liquid Eye liner on the lower lash line.

You can use this technique even with other kinds of eyeliners (gel,pencil).

Remember, for any make up trick or technique to come out really good, you need to practice alot.

Let me know if you use any other technique to apply eyeliners.
