How I use my cream eyeliner ...


I mentioned on Friday I would show everyone how I used my cream liner. Cream liners are the best, they don't smudge, and the texture makes them really easy to work with even for newbies.

Although my cream liner comes with a liner brush, which works quite well.. I recently started using my pencil liner as an applicator/brush. This is what I did:

Take a black pencil, and just dip it into the cream liner, for MAC's Fluidline, or Bobbi Brown's gel liners.

The pencil should look like this, you don't need a lot of product!

And done!
The reason why I find (personally) the pencil into the cream liner method works for me is because it gives me the width I want for the liner, I just need to draw a line with it. With the brush, because it is rather fine tip, I have to go over the line several times.

Hope you find this helpful!

Thanks for watching!

Great suggestion. I like the pencil idea and will have to try it. I've been using the Stila smudge pots, and you're right, with the little brush you have to go over the line a few times.

Thank you for sharing this with us retail_therapy. I also have cream liner but usually use the brush that came with it. Today I'll try it your way.
