- Is it waterproof? It is always better to wear waterproof makeup around the eyes so that it doesn’t get smudged or washed away easily. You need to be sure that your eyeliner doesn’t leave tracks all over your face in case your eyes were to water because of tears, dust or any other reason. This kind of eyeliner is not easy to remove and you’ll need to use special makeup remover for that.
- Does the color suit your face? Black and brown are the most popular colors for eyeliner because they make the eyes look very attractive and natural. However, some people prefer eyeliner in different colors for the dramatic effect they provide. If your eyes, skin or hair is very light then brown would be the best color for you. Black or dark brown looks great around dark eyes. If you have green eyes then you can experiment with mauve or blue eyeliner. Even so, this is a matter of personal preference.
- Does the liquid come on smoothly? If so then you will be able to apply it evenly onto the edges of your eyelids. Avoid buying eyeliner that comes out in lumps because it will look very bad on your eyes.
- Is the product comfortable to use? It should not cause irritation or redness in your eyes. Never use eyeliner that causes discomfort because you risk causing an infection in your eye.
You should apply liquid eyeliners with a great deal of care because it is necessary to draw a clear line around your eyes. It is also important to remember to throw away a bottle if it has crossed its expiry date. You should be very careful about never using another person’s eyeliner (or any other makeup for that matter) because this is a sure way to get infected with germs.
