Wink vs. Wink

Wednesday, February 07, 2007

One of my New Years' resolutions was to learn how to put on liquid eyeliner.I want the wing- tipped Alicia Keys eye. Contrary to popular belief( or the belief of my girlfriends),I don't know how to apply every thing makeup. I still don't know how to put on false lashes. But, back to me and the eyeliner. I have two liquid eyeliners ready for experimentation, mark. winkink and Tarte Indelible Wink both in black.

mark. Winkink- I put this on the left eye this morning. I shook up as instructed but still had to run over the line a couple of times to get full color. The tip in felt like a magic marker and was dry like magic marker could get. I like that you can handle to well and the tip is pretty stiff.

Tarte Indelible Wink- This liner has two ends, a liquid line brush end and a black eyeshadow felt marker like end. I did the liner(right eye) first which is a thin paint brush that comes out. I did it all crooked but the color was a deep black, not shreaky. When I DO get it right I will not have to worry about running over the line and again and again. The eyeshadow end, I skipped because I wanted a sharp line look. Maybe when I do a black smokey eye, that end will come in handy.

Conclusion- I need major practice, so don't no ask me to do eyeliner this weekend at Homecoming.:)

Love your blog. Since you've helped me so much it's my turn to help you. I have found that its easier to use a liquid liner with a full tip. I use a brand that I bought from CVS called Prestige. Been using it since Avon discontinued the one I used. Also, for some reason black always goes on light, that's why I normally use a brown color...its softer. Keep trying, you'll get it. Only took me a week to get the line straight.
