OK, I have to come clean. I didn’t come up with this idea myself. Not at all.
Yesterday, I visited a bunch of beauty blogs, and I read a post about an easier way to apply liquid eyeliner from Gio, a European beauty blogger at BeautifulwithBrains. Thank you, oh wise beauty blogger, for sharing this tip with me!
In November, CVS was having a 30% off promo, and I made quite a haul if I remember correctly. Wet ‘N Wild was on sale, and with the 30% off, I think I paid a dollar for the Mega Liner liquid eyeliner in dark brown, shade 868.
It comes with a tiny brush applicator that I thought would be easy to use. Wrong. I made a mess. Couldn’t get a thin, straight line at all. I tried a few times and gave up. I don’t think it had anything to do with the Wet ‘N Wild product, but with my limited skills. So I paid $22 for a Stila felt tipped dark brown liner instead.
Gio suggested that you take your favorite eyeliner brush — in my case, a slant tipped brush — and pick up some liquid eyeliner from the original brush and apply it as you would gel liner.
What a revelation! So much easier to apply. I did it. Now I don’t have to toss that cheapie Wet ‘N Wild Mega Liner liquid eyeliner.
So if you have a tough time applying a liquid eyeliner that you bought and don’t use for that reason, give this a try! And let me know if it worked for you.
