9 Easy Steps for Using Liquid Eyeliner

Have you ever tried a liquid eyeliner before?  I know, scary, right?!  I totally felt the same way until I recently tried this new “dip and draw” kind.  The dip and draw style is two pieces, and a pen style (like I tried before) is one piece, and all I can say is, “WOW!”

Now I’m sitting here wondering what took me so long to try it!  And honestly, it’s because I was scared it was going to take too long, be too easy to screw up, and/or be too messy; all of which, it was not.More resources:

Actually, I had my new dip and draw eyliner for about three weeks before I finally caved in and tried it.  I mean, really, that’s how nervous I was because I thought it was going to be so hard to use.  WRONG!  It was so easy!   So, I wanted to put some tips together for you to help you learn more about it so you can feel more comfortable trying it.  It really is awesome!

9 Easy Steps for Using Liquid Eyeliner

  • Sit at a table/stand at a flat surface
    • Securely place your elbow on surface
    • Rest your hand on your face near your eye so you have a steady hand (this will give you a straight line)
    • Tip your head back slightly and look down into the mirror
  • If needed, use your other hand to gently pull your eyelid tight, but do not tug
  • Wipe the eyeliner tip on the side of the container so you don’t get too much applied at once
  • Start your line wherever you feel comfortable
    • Most people start in the middle or the inner corner
    • I start in the middle
  • Place the tip of the liner as close to your lash line as possible and lightly apply it in short strokes
  • If you want a thicker line, you can apply more pressure
  • For the best look, the liner should be thin towards the inner corner and get thicker towards the outer corner
  • Feel free dip the liner back in the container, and then gently go over the entire line again for a smooth finish
  • Dip a Q-tip in makeup remover and clean up the line as needed

That’s it!  Liquid eyeliner, particularly the dip and draw style, is how you can create a beautiful winged eyeliner without the mess – nice and sharp.  Below are some examples of the different types of eyeliner, which may help you decide what is best for the look you are going for.types-of-eyeliner
