Step 1: Choose your eyeliner wisely
For all you liquid eyeliner amateurs, we suggest you get your hands on the Lakmé Absolute Gloss Artist Eye Liner – Black which gives a glossy finish and delivers even strokes for effortless application.
Step 2: Hold your liner brush flat, not straight
Firstly, before you begin with the application, shake up your eyeliner tube well to make the formula smooth. Secondly, always remember to hold your brush flat if you want to achieve perfect application. When you go in with the brush straight, your application will tend to get messy.
Step 3: Start in the middle
If you’re a newbie, you may probably think that applying eyeliner is same as kajal, wherein you start from the inner corner and slowly move towards the outer corner. Well, it’s not the case with liquid eyeliner. Instead, you start in the middle with your brush as close to the upper lash line as possible, and slowly drag to the outer corners. Use the leftover product on the brush to line the inner corners.
Step 4: Create wings
The last step is to create even wings on both the sides. To nail winged eyeliner, follow your lash line, going upwards to create a wing. Now fill in the winged outline you just created until all the skin between the lines is neatly hidden.
