My First Eyeliner Pencil
I am coming at you with this post from a non-makeup artist perspective. I enjoy makeup (ALOT) and enjoy applying it, but I would never call myself a makeup artist, I want to tell you about my first time with an eyeliner pencil.
The first time I tried an eyeliner I was in 6th grade and let me tell you it was a challenge all on its own. The eyeliner was black, and I had seen my mom take a lighter to the tip of it, so I did the same, and let just say I looked as if I got into a fight with two doorknobs with all the smudging, I had going on all the way around my eyes, it was a sight to see.
Once I had figured out the technique it was easy peasy, I would go all around the eye because we are talking about the late 80’s so that was the style then.
These eyeliner pencils are a bit better than back then so staying and non-smudging is a must for me, so I choose these, and I also love all the colors you can choose from, beautiful!
When I apply these eyeliner pencils, I like to use them in my upper waterline for the dimension effect, that I myself believe it gives the eye a more open look, not that I need bigger looking eyes because I am fortunate enough to have big eyes, I just like how it brings out different colors in my eyes, besides how it has the effect of a more open looking eye.
I remember that there used to be a rule with blondes and brunettes when it came to color choices, where blondes were only to wear brown eyeliner and brunettes to wear black, but I beg the differ and believe and hair color, eye color, it does not matter because all colors look beautiful on you when you feel beautiful in it.
