What are the different types of eyeliners

Well-defined eyes can completely transform any look, both day and night. Getting the perfect cat eye is not easy it requires a lot of practice and something very important: knowing the types of eyeliners to know when to apply each according to the result you want to achieve.

If you want to know what are the most common types of eyeliner and how to use them to make the eye line, do not miss the following article.

Liquid eyeliner

Liquid eyeliner is one of the most widely used products to make the streak of the eye. It is a tool with a very precise brush that leaves an intense finish.

Precision and lots of practice are indeed needed to make a nice corner with a liquid eyeliner. Our advice is to find a foothold to make the line, do not do it by show of hands. You can take the brush like a pencil and rest your little finger at the level of the cheekbone approximately. With this support, you will get a firmer pulse that will allow you to draw a more precise line.

Pencil liner

It is a basic makeup and the most common to start with the eyeliner. It is the most recommended eyeliner to mark the waterline since you have to have a lot of experience to make an even outline on the mobile eyelid with this pencil.

The material is very soft, its application is soft, but its somewhat creamier texture can make it melt and finish on the fixed eyelid.

We give you a trick to outline the eyes with pencil liner: before drawing the line, sharpen your pencil so that it is well sharpened. When you do the line, blend with a brush to avoid globs or areas with more products so that it does not smear or stick to the eyelid. Also, make sure that the pencil is oil-free, this will also help you lengthen its duration if your eyelid tends to get greasy.

Gel eyeliner

The gel liner is an eyeliner format that comes in a small bottle and needs to be applied with a brush. They are usually long-lasting formulas that leave a matte finish, so it is great if you have a greasy eyelid or you like the effect of a very black eyeliner, but without as much shine as the effect produced by liquid eyeliner.

It is a product that we recommend if you have little experience because, due to its texture, it glides very well and makes the job much easier. For use, the best option is to use a beveled brush. This type of brushes will help you mark the line almost effortlessly, especially the tail since you only have to support it at the end of the eye to draw the end of the eyeliner.

Eyeliner with shadow

It is not a type of eyeliner, but a way of making the eyeliner. It is about drawing the stripe with compact eye shadow and it is one of the best options to outline the eyes if you want to define your look naturally, without obvious lines.

To make your eyeliner with the shadow you just have to cover the brush with any eye shadow (it can be black, or brown for more naturalness) and paint the corner. Another way to use this technique is in combination with the eyeliner as the shadow will blur the streak.

It is a product that is not long-lasting, but you will love the result. Also, it is very useful when you want to achieve a smoky effect, although you can also make color outlines with the tones that you like the most.

Marker for liner

The eyeliner or down liner is a format similar to the liquid eyeliner, but its tip as a marker makes it easier to apply and leaves a finer line. It is an ideal format to make fine outlines, define the lash line, or for girls who have holes or sparsely populated lashes. It provides an intense and shiny finish.

There are different formats and thicknesses, but the most recommended are those with a long, fine point.

Eyeliner with seal

It is a format that includes at one end a liner in marker format and, at the other, a stamp to stamp that will help you paint the corner of your eye. It is a good option if you are starting and you need a guide to help you make your wing-cat eye. Your application is very simple:

1. Outline the eye with the part of the marker as you would normally, without painting the corner.

2. Paint with the marker the stamp and stamp at the end of the eye to remove the corner.

3. Leave it for a few seconds so that it marks well.

4. Remove the stamp and fill with the marker or with a finer tip eyeliner to complete the line or mark any part that has not been painted well.

Khol pencil

The khol is a type of eyeliner that has a mine khol, a mixture of minerals and charcoal which dates back to ancient Egypt.

The khol pencil is a very intense eyeliner makeup that we recommend using only in the waterline because it stains a lot, so it can be difficult to do the eyeliner on the mobile eyelid. For this same reason, we recommend applying it before applying makeup to avoid staining your makeup.
