Adventure in liquid eyeliner

While browsing the makeup aisle at a popular retailer I stumbled upon a clearanced item (my favorite!) that promised to "play up my hazel eyes". Hmmmm.

$4.48 later I was the proud owner of a little bottle of liquid eyeliner in Black Pearl. (Perhaps I was enchanted with visions of Johnny Depp in Pirates of the Caribbean?) My only problem? I don't have a clue how to put on liquid eyeliner. With my luck I'll stab myself in the eye, rendering me blind.

But God bless the internet!

Within a few keystrokes I was able to find a plethora of information on how to apply liquid eyeliner. Because I care about you (yes, you!) I would like to share what I've found lest you find yourself in my predicament. You can thank me later.

Hahahaha!! That was hilarious. I've been applying liquid eyeliner (not every day) for about 13 years. I stretch the lid COS IT'S EASIER, plus, you can get a thinner line close to the lid that way. When you're done, you just continue the line to the end of the eye. I like to straighten the line at the end rather than keep it curved down, that way, it's a little more cat-like.

I had no idea that the application of liquid eyeliner was as quick and simple as that. Of course, I don't usually use shadow, so I'm thinking that liner would be a bit too contrasty and probably would ruin the 'natural' look I usually go for.

Well, my stupid connection won't let me see the video. I'll share my thoughts on liquid eye-liner, though. I like it, but I suck at applying it. Great way to fix mistakes is with a wet Q-tip. Sometimes I put on regular eye liner and then top it with liquid--shows fewer mess ups.

Gawd I'm glad I don't have to *do* the makeup thang. Not that I don't appreciate a dolled up dolly, but what a time hit.

Ha Ha! I love it. You made the blog roll for that one. Anyone who would help a gal out by posting such a wonderfully useful, yet obscure bit of info like that is all right in my book!

LOL! You really can find anything on the internet these days. Even after watching the video, I still look like Amy Winehouse gone wrong when I try to line my eyes.

There was a time I loved putting on make-up. With ridiculous allergies, including to some of the so called hypo-allergenic products I am having more fun watching your expert application.
