I like fluidlines and pencils. I will either do upper and lower or just upper with nothing on the bottom. Most e/s colours seem to look weird against my eyes without liner.

I use gel eyeliner and I usually just apply it to my upper lid for daytime looks. For a night out, I line both lids. Whilst lining my lower lid, I apply eyeliner only halfway rather than the all the way into the inner corner. It just looks strange if I apply eyeliner to my entire lower lid, I guess that’s because of my eye shape.

I love fluidlines, but I’ve been using technikohls mostly lately. Either way, my eyes are too deep set and too round for me to get winged liner to look right. I love liner, but I think it’s probably the hardest thing for me to do, particularly my lower lid and water lines. I can never do the looks I want to the way I see them in my mind.

i usually use blacktrack fluidline on the upperlid, and a black pencil on my waterline. Sometimes i’ll use some shadow to line the lower lashline with white eyeliner on my waterline to brighten my eyes. It really depends on what I’m wearing and the eyeshadow colors I’m wearing that day.

I used to use a pencil only, but recently converted to Fluidline and LOVE it! I use it both on the top and bottom lid…

I like liquid in form of pens, because i’m still a beginner, and only upper when i use liquid.

When i choose to use a pencil, i do upper and lower.

I like fluidlines and technikohls. Generally, I will line both the top and bottom. But on the bottom I line lightly and smudge it, with it being lighter near the inner corner of my eye and darker near the outer corner.

Today I have on liquid liner, though, for a fun retro pinup-ish winged eye look.

Lucky! I could never wear carbon as my liner to work because here was always so much oil in the air and I worked such long shifts (10hours plus!).

Kohl pencils. With all these rave reviews however I’m thinking next payday I might try Fluidline… (depending on how much NN hurts my wallet of course!)

I use both pencils and fluid, I prefer fluid though. I like the ones in the pot (fluidline, or benefit’s creaseless eyeshadow) the best. For a retro, or smokey eye I use across the top only; for everyday I usually do bottom outside corner, or bottom outside corner and slightly into the top on the outside. It makes your eyes look bigger, and also helps the eyeshadow look more natural if you put a medium or darkish shade on 🙂

I like gel liners. They are fairly precise and have good staying power. The only thing is, I use a brush that’s probably not for gel liners, because I can’t get the hang of the angled ones!

I use pencils sometimes too, usually self-sharpening ones, because regular ones, I seem to have to tug too much. The only problem is, they seem to smudge a bit on my lower lash line, no matter what brand I use.

Normally I do my upper and lower lash lines, even for a casual day out. I just make the lines thinner. For big evenings and event makeup, I make the lines darker and thicker.

Have never liner my fluidline–too scared to do so! LOL.

Hey AmyLou! I love gel liners, too! I prefer self-sharpening ones, as well, because I’m such a dunce when it comes to sharpening myself!

Hey Cristine,

Basically my style is normal one but tailed and a little below,just outer corners.Its blacktrack fluidline its very easy to apply and very edgy too.I like sometimes cat style and i am always wearing liners never without it,u will c me..


i like using gel liners or pencil liners coz they’re easier to handle..i find fluidlines abit difficult to use..any tips? i like to juz draw my upper lid that’s slightly tailed at the back to lift my eyes..

I use pencil to line along the root of my upper lashes to give a full lash look. For extra staying, I line again with powder. For natural daytime look, I line my lower lashline with soft gold pencil or sometimes grey.

I’ve used pretty much everything–pencil, gel, liquid, pen–and liquid’s the only one I’ve never really gotten the hang of. The pens are great, I use CoverGirl Line Exact. I have one fluidline, and 3 of the loreal hip gel eyeliners, and I like them all a lot. I think they’re pretty similar quality. I’ve never been great at lining with eyeshadow, although sometimes I do it with a mixing medium. I like pencil but I haven’t found my HG.

I just bought the Sonia Kashuk angled eyeliner brush at Target, and it’s soooo good. Highly recommend.

LOL I actually meant liquid’s the only one I can’t get the hang of! Which is so sad because the liquidlasts are great great!

Right now I’m using my Heatherettes more often than anything. I have some fluidline I used to use, but I’m terrible at making the line even so I use it now for eyeshadow purposes. I also have a eyeliner with the built in brush, but I can never get my left eye to match my right. with the Kohl formulas, it’s easier to make it even. Also I do upper eyes only. Trying to do the lower eyes makes me cry(literally, it’s horrible) so I don’t do it.
