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.
