Q: How should I wear liquid eyeliner? And how do I apply it without looking like a raccoon?

Liquid liner gives eyes instant sex appeal (think Sophia Loren and Bridget Bardot). It was a hot trend on the S/S ’12 runway at shows like Dolce & Gabbana, where models were given a slight ‘cat eye’ with a subtle flick of liquid liner.

 

The best way to wear it is to keep the eye neutral with an eggshell eyeshadow and then apply the liner. Remember, it takes some practice (and a steady hand!) so start off by making little dots on your lash line with the tip of the liner, then join the dots and create a flick at the end. Pair with a matte red lip for some ‘50s flair.

 

TIP: To steady your hand, sit down and lean your elbow on a flat surface like a table. This will anchor your arm and will prevent your hand from getting the shakes.
