How to Apply Eye Liner

History Of The Eye Liner

Many say that using eye liner was first practiced in Ancient Egypt where it was customary for those who were royalty and the common man to use it to decorate their eyes. Another royal person  would always use eyeliner to enhance the beauty of her eyes was Cleopatra the stunning Queen of Egypt.

After the demise of ancient Egypt the eyeliner again gained popularity in the fashion world during the 1920’s and then again in the 1960’s and finally in the 1970’s.

Difference Between Pencil Eyeliner and Liquid Eye Liner

Some women tend to prefer the eye liner pencil over the liquid liner to beautify their eyes.

The eye liner pencil is much easier to spread around the eyes since it can be applied in one stroke but the liquid liner on the other hand requires a steady hand and has to be applied carefully in short strokes.

Pencil eyeliner can be smudged to give an uneven look or a professional look whereas liquid liner can’t although it gives a bolder look than pencil eyeliner.

Liquid liner is ideal for those who wear their makeup for long periods of time since it’s difficult to remove liquid liner unlike pencil eyeliner.

How To Choose An Eyeliner

The right eye liner should enhance the color of your eyes.

Copper, gold, champagne, navy and terracotta colored eyeliners are perfect for those with blue eyes.

If you have dark eyes choose dark shades like black. If you have light colored eyes you can try plums, gold, brown and bronze shades.
