Generally speaking, it takes a very steady hand to apply liquid eyeliner, but it also offers the most precise and defined line. If you’re still a beginner, do try liquid liners that come with thin, fine points or felt-tip brushes. Liquid eyeliners are wonderful if you’re trying to create a more ‘Arabic’ look, or when you want cat eyes and dramatic looks. They can provide a more defined and also thinner line and can make the eyelashes look impressively thicker!
The second type is with felt tips and they can be used like a pen. Control is a lot easier than the first type, so many women start with this when they move from pencil to liquid eyeliners. And oh, they dry faster than the brush liquid eyeliners too!
However, you need patience and you need to practise, practise and practise until you can perfect the art! If you make a mistake with a liquid eyeliner, wait for it to dry, remove it with a cotton swab dipped in makeup remover, and start over.
For a long time, such gel or cream-to-powder eyeliners are used only professional makeup artists rather than the public. Why? Simply because although they offer superb application and deep color payoff, they are trickier to use.
