I truly regret that I was able to see the beauty of wearing eyeliners only when I graduated college ( how crazy is that? ) . Eyeliners definitely open up the eyes, bring some depth, oomph, sex appeal, and all those good things! ( too many to mention, eh? ) I now realize that I could not leave the house without wearing eyeliner – I might be lazy sometimes to apply eye makeup, but I will never be too lazy not to wear eyeliner.
My problem with eyeliners is that number one, they smudge. I’m also not fond of pencil eyeliners, for I get irritable or feel not so nice with the pressure when the pencil starts “drawing” the line. With the smudge issue, my face is horribly oily that I need an eyeliner that will truly stay for the longest time. My Holy Grail sealant would be the Bare Escentuals Weather Everything Liner Sealer, that as the medium is mixed with my loose mineral eyeliner, it would surely stay all throughout the day. I also love, love, love my Smashbox Bent Liner Brush as it makes my application way easier. Also, I’ve also learned to be experimental with eyeliner colors – from brown , I’ve been more adventurous and tried purples, greens, bronzes, and even blues. Now, I wear blue eyeliner in my laziest days and it really makes a statement. Friend Aileen on the other hand , swears by MAC Fluidlines as they spread like butter and has good staying power. Over at the Mineral Makeup Blog, the Blushing Vixen gushes about indelible gel liners as she shows off her collection. How cool is that?
A question to my dear readers:
Which eyeliner ( kind -liquid, pencil, or gel ), or brand, do you love most and why ? I’d love some input!
