A GOOD eye­liner is the se­cret to good make-up in gen­eral.

“It makes the eyes look big­ger and more ex­pres­sive,” says Peter Sch­midinger, an ex­pert at the Ger­man Cos­met­ics As­so­ci­a­tion. But it can be tricky to use.

“Liq­uid eye­liner is tougher than an eye­liner pen­cil and is some­thing for the prac­tised hand. Even the small­est mis­take can be dif­fi­cult to fix,” warns Sch­midinger.

“How­ever, with a steady hand you can end up with a de­fined line that em­pha­sises the eyes.”

Sch­midinger’s ad­vice is to start draw­ing a line with the eye­liner in the mid­dle of the eye. The most im­por­tant thing is that the eye­liner looks clean and neat.

Sch­midinger there­fore rec­om­mends us­ing the flat side of the brush, as well as mak­ing sure you have a very steady hand: “My tip is to pow­der the eye­lid be­fore ap­ply­ing the eye­liner, then it will not smudge as fast.” – dpa

Liq­uid eye­liner is more dif­fi­cult to ap­ply than pen­cil liner.
