    I use liquid.

    I would suggest wiping the applicator on a bit of tissue before you apply it so that it doesnt drip all over the place then just apply as close to the lashes as possible

    Pencil/khol. Liquid is shit for smudging (obviously), and very few people can pull off solid lines even although a shitload of people seem to think they can.
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,323 The Mix Honorary Guru
    I think its one of things that is trial and error really
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,323 The Mix Honorary Guru
    I use pencil/kohl or even eyeshadow as eyeliner.

    Pencil, fuck that liquid shit, it goes wrong for me and i get mad.
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,323 The Mix Honorary Guru
    Soft pencil or whatever you call it, kohl I guss from reading this. CG makes a really cheap eyeliner with a smudger on the other end thats real good.

    And :yes: to Lea uk and the eyeshadow. You can get so many different colors too then without having to buy anything extra ;)

    kohl.

    I dont like the look liquid gives me, mainly as it is one bit squiggly line!
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,323 The Mix Honorary Guru
    I use a pencil Barry M do a good one and it's quite soft :)
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,323 The Mix Honorary Guru
    liquid on top , kohl on the bottom. a good tip for liquid is don't worry if it goes squiggly on top , just concentrate on geting it close enough to the lashes then use a damp cotton bud to wipe off the mistakes and leave a nice line.

    i use pencil most of the time on the inner eyelid. if i want a more dramatic look i use liquid on the upperlid too, but i cant be arsed most days to do that

    pencil

    i never put it on my inner eye, makes them look much smaller

    always do it on top and just outside on the bottom

    I wear liquid liner on top, and pencil on the inner rim of my eyelid, which eyeshadow around the edges for a smokey look. That's my day and evening face.

    Liquid eyeliner is the best thing since sliced bread.

    Yep... my eyes look like this. I wear a light grey/silver in the day, then use more chocolate browns and gunmetals for the evening.

    I use a cake liner applied with a brush, which i guess is like a liquid liner. And I like the day eyes Ilora.

    I'm impressed, that looks good!

    Pencil...I'm allergic to liquid and just end up with streaming eyes from the minute the applicator gets within about 5cm's of me.
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,323 The Mix Honorary Guru
    Pencil! Always looks ace all smudged. :)

    Best khol is a white pencil with Onyx on the side by Benefit. Blackest of the black!
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,323 The Mix Honorary Guru
    I change depending on what kind of a mood i'm in - but if you want a good liquid one that you don't need a degree in A-level art to apply i reccomend Lancome's Art Liner its lurrrvely.

    I also have a random No7 pencil i bought as a joke to wear with a fancy dress outfit - which actually is amazingly good - i was very suprised and has this cool smudgy bit on it

    I hate liquid eyeliner with a passion, black kohl does the job for me everytime!

    I bought that about a year ago because someone said the exact same thing as you. But i just cant use it, I find the regular ones easier to apply.
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,323 The Mix Honorary Guru
    After discovering that those felt-tip like liquid eyeliners are approximately 1000% easier to use than the brush ones, I now use both.

    Trying to cut down on my overall eyeliner use in the day though, to minimise the drag queen look.

    It was probably me - i've been addicted to it since i was about 14
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,323 The Mix Honorary Guru
    I use pencil on the inner rims of my eyelids (top and bottom), then liquid above my top eyelashes and below my bottom ones (only about halfway though). I can never get it nice and smooth though really.

    I did buy some of this yesterday and omg it's so good. And it smudges really well and it's just awesome.

    Haha the drag queen look is me! :flirt:
    I usually prefer kohl for black eyeliner, and liquid for coloured. I don't like it when my coloured eyeliner smudges.
