Redheads, eyeliner can be perplexing. Should you go for a dramatic look? Do you wear liquid or pencil? Or, do you use eyeshadow for eyeliner?
1. Applying Liquid/Pencil Eyeliner:
Deciding to use liquid or pencil is simply a preference. Some like a pencil because of the “smudge look;” although, many women enjoy liquid eyeliner because it’s more “set.”
To apply either liquid or pencil, make sure you have a steady hand and line your eye from the inside of the eye in an outward direction in one big single sweep. Immediately, your eye will emerge large(r)!
Tip #1: After applying the liquid liner, wiggle some liner ON the lashes, by the lash line. The result should not be a line; however, it should come as a thin line at the root- this will add a more dramatic look!
Tip #2: The number one rule when applying eyeliner is to have a thin line on the inner rim of the lids. If you use a pencil, make sure it is always sharpened!

2. Applying An Eyeliner With Eyeshadow:
This is a great recommendation for travelers or people who travel with their makeup a lot because all you need is an eyeshadow palette for eyeshadow and eyeliner.
Starting with a bare eye, apply a light facial powder over the eyelid and using a dark grey shadow (or color of your choice), brush it on the eyelid. Once this is done, it is time to apply your amazing eyeliner.
Damp a liner brush with a bit of water and then dip it into the eyeliner color of your choice. It is best to go with black or brown. But, if you’re daring, you can opt for greens and blues.
Hold your skin tight and using #1 as a reference, apply the eyeliner outward the eye starting from the inside corner.
