Because I have small children, it is not unusual for me to miss my beauty sleep. After a few nights without consecutive sleep, I usually end up with some dark circles brewing under my eyes. When this happens, the last thing I need is my eyeliner smearing and emphasizing the dark circles.
Here are some tips for applying eyeliner so that you can avoid emphasizing dark circles or creating smudges.
- Buy quality eye pencils (Bobbi Brown Long-Wear Eye Pencil) The cheaper varieties are much more likely to smudge. This is a makeup product that can be well worth a little splurge.
- Match your eye shadow to your eye pencil color.
- Draw a thin line with your eye pencil along the lash line.
- As you apply eye shadow, lightly go over the pencil line that you have drawn.
When you use these tips, the pencil line will last longer and not smudge easily.
