Tutorial: How to Apply Liquid Eyeliner

Hi Bellas,

I’ve gotten quite a few requests to make this tutorial. It was a really easy one to make…all I had to do was apply some liquid eyeliner and try to talk while doing it!

I mentioned in the video, I’ve been wearing eyeliner since middle school. Growing up, I obsessed about my Asian eyes, trying to figure out ways to make them bigger and better. Fortunately, I got over that and have come to appreciate the beauty in my ethnic features. However, I still love to accentuate them with liquid liner. If I could pick one product that I couldn’t live without, it would be eyeliner! It can do so much to emphasize your eyes.

My favorite product is one that you’ve seen in several of my videos…Revlon Colorstay Liquid Liner in Blackest Black. Nothing beats this eyeliner. I’ve tried several brands, including MAC, and this is the best by far.

I really like the applicator…the felt tip lets me create a nice line where I can taper and thicken it easily. Morever, the product itself is the best. The liner always comes out very vibrant…you don’t need to go over the line more than once to achieve a dark, vibrant color (I can’t say the same about MAC). The product also never smudges or fades at all! On top of it all, you can’t beat the price! Revlon always has sales at your local grocery store or CVS, and this is the best time to buy it. I also recommend Black Brown for a more subtle day look.

In the video, I show how I line my eyes with liquid eyeliner. Mind you, I have to make my line a bit thicker so that the liner doesn’t disappear behind my eyelid skin. Monolids/Semi-Monolids out there know what I mean! I give a few tricks including bracing your hand on your face for leverage. Applying liquid eyeliner does take a bit of practice. But once you got it down, it comes so natural. Hopefully I’ve helped a few of you with this video.

Till next time, Ciao Bellas!

beautiful work, as always!!

i've never tried an eyeliner with the felt tip. do you like it better than the regular brush?

p.s. the MUFE high definition powder is really neat. i've been using it everyday, and i really like how it evens out my face. however, if i put too much, i look like a corpse.

You make it look so easy! Liquid liner will always be a pain in the behind for me, hah. I love how it looks; my hands are just too shaky and unstable to get a good line most of the time.

no matter how hard i try, i can never get it right! there is always something wrong. either it's too thick or it's not close enough to the tightline. lol, i just gave up on it.

btw, i loveee all of your reviews and tutorials! i actually started watching you on youtube & then later got carried onto the blogging world! =)
