Skipping Eye Primer

Skipping Eye Primer Some women are more prone to issues with smudging than others. It could be the brand of eyeliner they wear or their eyes may simply water more easily than others. It’s essential to use eye primer to keep your makeup in place. A dab of eye primer keeps both eyeshadow and eyeliner where they’re supposed to be. Smudges won’t be an issue anymore!

Leaving a Gap from Your Lash Line

Leaving a Gap from Your Lash Line When you line your eyes, you want to get as close to the lash line as possible. If you’re not careful to do this, you may accidentally leave a small gap between your lash line and where the eyeliner is. This isn’t a good look. It can take some practice to figure this out but you can do it. For me, pencil is the easiest form of eyeliner to use in order to prevent this problem.

Not Extending Your Eyeliner Far Enough on the Outer Corner

Not Extending Your Eyeliner Far Enough on the Outer Corner Another common mistake when it comes to eyeliner is not extending it out far enough. You don’t have to do a winged eyeliner look, although they are trendy right now. But be careful not to stop your line too soon. If you do, it leaves you with an undone look and no one wants that. The easiest way to check this is to hold a hand mirror on the side of your eye to see the reflection in a mirror you’re facing. This’ll tell you if your line is complete.

Working with an Eyeliner That Has a Dull Point

Working with an Eyeliner That Has a Dull Point If you want your eyeliner to look sharp then you need to work with one that has a sharp point. A dull eyeliner will produce a dull line. Most women prefer their eyeliner to be sharp and precise. It’s a hassle to take time to sharpen your eyeliner but it’s worth the effort. You’ll be amazed how much of a difference this makes in your finished look.

Lining Only Your Bottom Lash Line

Lining Only Your Bottom Lash Line Ladies, you can get by with lining only your top lash but lining only the bottom won’t do good things for you! Line only the top or both top and bottom but never only the bottom. Lining only the bottom brings attention to your lower eye and looks unbalanced. It can also age you. Look at some examples of each look and you’ll quickly see the difference.

Lining Your Waterline

Lining Your Waterline Yes, lining your waterline can give you a different look. It can even make your eyes look brighter. But it’s not a healthy habit. Your eye doctor would undoubtedly agree with that statement. Stick to traditional eyelining techniques and leave your waterline natural.

Using Old Eyeliner

Using Old Eyeliner Eyeliner and mascara should both be replaced regularly. These two makeup products can quickly become a germ magnet. Toss your mascara every 2-3 months and your eyeliner every 3-6. It’s never a good idea to use an old eyeliner you find in the back of your makeup drawer. Think of it this way; replacing your eyeliner and mascara is a good reason to have a shopping trip to Ulta or Sephora.

These’re 7 eyeliner mistakes you want to avoid. What’s your favorite eyeliner? I’d love your recommendations!

The Tarte liquid liner!

It's true. Last week I used a mascara that I found from several months ago and ended up with an infection. -_- I knew better too! That gave me the motivation to toss ALL old makeup!

Definitely try these three- 1. NYX Matte Liquid Liner (The brush is FANTASTIC) 2. Inglot Gel Liner (Super pigmented!) But my favorite is 3. Physician's Formula 2 in 1 Eyeliner Pen (The point is super fine and gives you the best control when creating winged liner.)
