Liner notes

Elle (Canada) - - Beauty -

There are two types of peo­ple in the world: those born with the abil­ity to draw a per­fect cat eye and the re­main­ing 99 per­cent of the pop­u­la­tion who can never quite get their liner Adele-level sym­met­ri­cal. Sur­pris­ingly, Lisa Eldridge, makeup cre­ative di­rec­tor for Lancôme and YouTube leg­end, be­longs to the lat­ter group. “I’m re­ally good at ap­ply­ing eye­liner on other peo­ple, but I’m ter­ri­ble at ap­ply­ing it on my­self,” she ad­mits. “My left eye is al­ways a disas­ter!” But no longer. Eldridge helped to de­velop Lancôme Grandiose Liq­uid Liner’s mov­able ap­pli­ca­tor, which twists and locks to a 35de­gree an­gle for a more com­fort­able and con­trolled ap­pli­ca­tion ($40). The finger grip is set very close to the liner tip for er­gonomic ease. Liner new­bies will also love that the wa­ter-based matte for­mula dries light­speed fast be­fore you can blink and smudge it. PRO TIP “When you do your wing, don’t close your eyes,” says Eldridge. “That will force the line down­ward. Re­lax your face, look straight ahead in the mir­ror and then draw.”
