I am just new to putting up make up. I was tomboyish growing up and “girly” stuffs were the least of my priorities. Most of my early jobs were on the field, so having extra powder and something sticky in my face is not exactly ideal when you deal with dust, heat, and whatnots in your work environment. However, I got promoted. Now, I spend more time in the office and meets with managers, executives, and clients. And so makeup. My problem with eyeliner is that I can’t seem to apply it correctly, the line isn’t prominent enough and I can’t make it look thick. Will liquid eyeliners like these solve it? But as I read here, it may not be suitable for beginners. Any advice?

I’m not a fan of pencil eyeliner as it scratches my eyes lol. I use Almay twist up crayon eyeliner, it’s really smooth and it’s also hypoallergenic.
Liquid eyeliner is very precise and you get some sharp lines when you use it. It’s really good for above your top lash line and for a wing. I was never good with it so I don’t personally use it. Also, I usually only use liner on my waterline, and the liquid burns when it gets in your eye lol
Hope this helps!

I like covergirl perfect point plus eye liner

Liquid liner can be very unforgiving. When I started wearing makeup, I used the Lancome kohl pencil my mom bought me, and it’s still one of my favorites. Their black is bold but still soft and manageable. If you like the look of a liquid liner, or a winged look, I’d recommend Tart’s tarteist clay paint liner. It goes on like gel, but it smudges nicely if you want it to, looks more natural and it’s more easy to correct than liquid.

Keep practicing! Liquid is my go to. I either use Kat Von D or Stila Stay All Day.

I’ve used Covergirl perfect point eyeliner for years, and I love it.

I use Stila All Day waterproof liquid liner. I don’t have a steady hand so I can’t apply a lot of liquid liners, but this one is so easy, as it just feels like you’re writing with a pen/pencil. It’s a decent price at $22, and it lasts me quite awhile. (Normally 3 months at least, but I do have tattoo liner so I don’t use a ton of extra)
Maybelline Master Prescise is a good alternative that is easy to put on – it just isn’t quite as bold and doesn’t last as long as the Stila. I normally use it for during the week while at work, and save the Stila for when I want my makeup to be a little more bold and put together, or if I want it to last all day.
The Stila is definitely better if you’re wanting to add liner after using eyeshadow. The Maybelline tends to sometimes not go on well after eyeshadow unless it’s a brand new tube.

I wouldn’t do liquid if your unpracticed and even I can’t put liquid liner on the bottom. It sounds like maybe you’re using a pencil style, like where you have to sharpen it? I’ve always found those to be really light.
I really like Tarte liner, it’s a twist up crayon style, quite dark, works great. For a cheaper brand, I like maybelline line stylist.

I use a combination. First, I apply Mac eyeliner from a pot using a small angled brush. This is the best way I can achieve a smooth line and control the level of thickness myself. I then go over it with Revlon liquid eyeliner to make it last all day. The combination helps because it’s easier for me to make a smooth line with the cream eyeliner so I can be less precise when using the less forgiving liquid eyeliner.

Mac Fluidline felt tip eyeliner pen in Rapid Black. It’s the best for winged eyeliner looks! I love it and can’t use anything else! 🙂

It makes me raise my eyebrows that you say that you can’t get a pencil to look prominent and thick. Do you just mean that it fades or do you mean that it doesn’t look like you have any on when you open your eyes?
I’m monolidded. I have to use waterproof liquid or else it smears and even then, you can barely see my eyeliner with my eyes fully open. I’ve come to compensate with extra mascara. My mom, who’s eyes have drooped so much with age that eyeliner is pointless, compensates with extra eyeshadow.

I use the Marc Jacobs liquid liner. It’s really pricey at $30 but it’s the only eye liner I’ve ever used that doesn’t budge at all. My eyeliner survives the summer heat, the pool, and my bad day tears. I’ve tried Kat Von D, Stila, and Bobbi Brown and they don’t compare.
