I love the Rimmel London Exaggerate eye liner.  I have trouble applying eyeliner sometimes and that goes on pretty smooth (actual pencils on me go on weirdly) while still having the sharpener to make the line thinner.

I have heard this Buxom one is great.  I have never tried it but am going to order it soon.  You use a brush to apply it (you can buy these anywhere Target, CVS, or a high end makeup retailer) and I have read reviews of people sleeping in it and it still looking fabulous the next day. And for the price its a great deal!

I use one from Clinque.  I cannot remember what it is called, but I LOVE it – it has a roll-up pencil (soft, so it goes on easy and stays on; plus, you never have to sharpen) on one end and a pointed sponge “smudger” on the other end.  Plus, it comes in a ton of colors (I wear the plum) and lasts for about 6-9 months of every day wear.

I use Covergirl Lineexact Liquid Liner. It stays put all day and it applies easy. You can draw a thin line or a thick line. I think it is even waterproof. It is inexpensive and I love the darkness of the black. But it comes in other colors.

I love eyeliner and have tried MANY different types/brands.  My absolute favorite is Bobbi Brown’s Long Wear Gel Liner.  You have to buy the liner brush separately, but it’s the only one I’ll use now.

I love MAC’s powerpoints! They go on so easy and smooth and I love all the colors they come in! My everyday eyeliner is one and is called buried treasure, it’s black but has gold flecks in it! I love it!

Mac fluidline. You’ll also need a brush to apply but it has awesome staying power, which is good since you’ll be using this on your honeymoon. 

As for tips – use your finger to pull your eye taut and draw short strokes across the lashline. Don’t try to draw one long line. When you are done, take an eye shadow in a similar color to the eyeliner you used, dip a brush in to the shadow and  draw over the line to soften it and fill in any gaps.

How about gel eyeliner?  Bobbi Brown and Maybelline make good ones.  It’s a little intimidating bc you have to you a brush to apply, but the trick is to have a teeny bit on the brush, and apply in small strokes.  It helps me have more control of the line, so it never ends up heavier than I want.

I recommend using a gel liner with a bent liner brush. I have always had such a problem applying both pencil or liquid eyeliner to my upper lid. This has made it so much easier. I use eyeliner and a brush from coastalscents.com They also have really cheap eyeshadow palets that have a tunn of pigment in them.

If you would rather use a liquid eyeliner I recommend using q-tips to make the line straight.

Oh, and if you are going anywhere on your honeymoon where there will be water (i.e. you’ll be swimming a lot, going in hot tub, etc. ) I would highly recommend not using a liquid liner since those are a mess when they get wet.

Get Covergirl’s roller eyeline in espresso unless you’re blonde and then get the one that’s lighter.  It’s easier to apply than a regular pencil and i love how “everyday” brown looks.  It’s not like whoa here comes eyeline, and since you don’t normally wear it that would be good for you. 

If you do end up buying a pencil liner, keep it in the freezer!  Makes it easier to apply.

I love liquid eyeliner but a pencil eyeliner would probably work for you if you are a beginer 🙂 Pull your eye taut from the corner so you don’t have any wrinkle and just draw across the top of your lashes. You can use a q-tip sometimes to smudge it a little bit to make sure that your line looks nice and even, also to smudge it a little bit into your eye shadow so they look more fluid. Also go on youtube and you can find a couple videos of pros giving you a step by step instruction…ALSO you can go to any department store and the girls at the make-up counter can help you and give you some tips in person 🙂
