A makeup look can truly be elevated with a simple swipe of eyeliner. But there are so many different types, which one is the “right” one? When it comes down to makeup, there is no right way, there is only one way and that way is what makes you most comfortable. Eye make up can be tricky on its own, adding in a winged-liner can take even longer however, if you know the difference between the types of eyeliner, it may help you.
The Motives Mineral Gel Eyeliner in Little Black Dress has an extremely smooth consistency which makes applying it extremely easy. Using an angled brush can also help you draw a precise winged liner. Having a brush is also great for beginners as you have control with application.
A pencil eyeliner is great for the waterline and creating a smokey eye.
The Motives Kohl Eyeliners are easy to smudge due to its creamy consistency. Apply a thin line to the top lash line and smudging it out can create the perfect smokey effect. It’s also a super easy and clean to apply to the top or bottom water line. When applying to the water line, make sure the tip of the pencil is blunt otherwise you can really hurt yourself with a pointy pencil.
Liquid eyeliner is probably the best eyeliner when it comes to staying power. However, it’s good to note that it cannot be applied to the waterline as it’ll most likely, never dry. Motives Liquid Eyeliner is perfect to create a crisp and sharp winged liner (you can always use a Q-tip to clean up the edges).
One of the easiest eyeliners to use is a felt tip liner.
The Motives Luxe Precision Eyeliner provides plenty of control when applying to the eye. You’ll feel familiar with it because you’re used to using a pen/pencil in everyday life. It’s also the most quickest way to apply eyeliner once you’ve practiced a steady hand.
