How to Apply Gel Eyeliner – Tips & Tricks

Makeup & Beauty Tips on How to Apply Gel Eyeliner

Share your best tips and tricks for applying gel eyeliner!  Feel free to share your first experiences, how you’ve grown, what you’ve learned, and what, ultimately, you found most helpful in learning how to apply gel eyeliner.  (And if you haven’t conquered it, hopefully some of these tips will help you get there!)

Temptalia’s Tips

  1. The applicator is important!  My preference is for a very thin, angled brush (I like MAC’s 208)  The thinner brush allows me to do both thin and thicker lines.
  2. Look up to see how close the eyeliner is to your lash line, because ultimately, you want to the eyeliner to get between the lashes, too, for a very solid, crisp line.
  3. If your hands are unsteady, try stabilizing yourself by resting your elbow on a flat surface.

Rant & Rave: Sheer Lipstick

This Week’s Topic: Sheer Lipstick!

Your Mission: Tell us what you love, hate, or are otherwise indifferent to about sheer lipstick. What drives you bananas? What makes them necessary?

my answer: They’re easier to use for every day, but of course, you can always take a more pigmented lipstick and use less of it (or mix it with some balm) for sheerer color. I think that it is easier to have a lipstick that starts of sheer or semi-sheer and use it that way than to blot down a really opaque lipstick than in the case of eyeshadow.

Are you all shopped out yet? I’ve picked up most of my Christmas gifts for the year, though there are a few I’m hoping to snag a deal on come Cyber Monday.  The hardest part about shopping early is having to keep everything a secret for the next month! Ahh!
