The products I'm using:
These are what I think of as my secret eye-lining weapons. From left to right: a long thin brush, a shorter thin brush, a flat angle brush, cotton buds and eye-shadow primer. The cotton buds are, of course to clean up any messes and the eye-shadow primer is to help it all stay in place. Although sometimes I forget it!
Lets start with pencil. Its a much softer more natural finish. I like to warm the pencil up on the back of my hand then draw on a rough line. Then using my flat angle bush I smooth and smudge out the line, then using a cotton bud I clean up the inner corner of my eye making the line a little thinner.
Felt tips I think are great for beginners, really easy to use and un-likely to make much of a mess.
Liquid is my ultimate go to. I've recently started using a long thin brush, dipping that into my liquid liner and applying it with that. Its great for achieving a beautiful thin line and is really easy to use. Much neater than using the dipper it comes with!
Again with gel liner I use the smaller thin brush to apply my gel liner for a beautiful precise line. I forgot to mention in my gel liner post that I like to warm the gel up by, err breathing over it. Sounds gross I know but if its warmer it helps to glide on better.
To line with eye shadow I use the flat angle brush and and load the brush up with eye shadow and line along the lash line. The eye shadow I have isn't very pigmented so I have to go over it a couple times, but I love the look, and again its a very natural looking way to line the eye. And of course using shadows you can experiment with different colours!
Purples great for making brown eyes pop!
Hope you've enjoyed!
