The Oiliness or Dryness of Your Skin – Eyeliner Makeup
If you have ‘dry’ or ‘normal’ skin, eyeliner will tend to stay put and ‘drift’ less, but dry skin types are also more likely to be more sensitive.
The different types of eyeliner makeup listed here won’t matter so much to you – any of them will stay in place, but you might want to check out the hypoallergenic brands to minimize irritation.
Oily skin is a different matter, and if you have very oily skin, liner will tend to slide off within a couple of hours.
The good news is that many people with oily skin tend to be less sensitive to products, and you will also get far fewer lines and wrinkles as you get older!
Kohl pencil and the ‘eye shadow’ method of applying eyeliner will ‘soak up’ some of the oils, as will a good micro powder base foundation.
Or you can apply your favourite eyeliner and then dab a little eye shadow powder on top of that using the eye shadow eyeliner method above.
An eye shadow that’s slightly lighter than your liner will add to a‘smudged-and-smoky’ effect, whereas using some very dark eye shadow powder will dramatize stronger lines even more.
The Flawlessness of your Complexion – Eyeliner Stencils
Some imperfection scan be covered up with foundation and concealer, but it’s no surprise that others can’t – and some blemishes – such as acne – can be worsened by using a lot of eyeliner stencils.
If you are lucky enough to have a good, healthy skin tone and perfect skin, you’ll look great.
Whether you go for strong Cleopatra ‘cat’s eyes’ lines or delicate touches of shadow around the edges of your lids.
But most of us aren’t so fortunate. Whilst dramatic eye make up can create a focal point and draw attention away from blemishes.
A subtler look using kohl and eye shadow will help give a more overall softness, which can draw your attention.
