Gel Liner Pictorial

Gel liner, as many of you will know, is pretty tricky to accomplish. You may have finally grasped kohl and liquid, but gel is some next level stress. So here is a simple pictorial which should help:

Start with a primed eye. If you are planning on wearing eyeshadow do this before you apply your eyeliner.

Take an eyeliner brush, I use a Mac 210, load it up with a good gel liner. I use Mac’s Fluidline in Blacktrack. Hold the brush as low down as possible, this will help you control the brush better. Start by drawing the straight line across your lid, with the brush held sideways against the lid (as shown in the picture).

Step 2: Next draw a line starting in line with your lower lashes and pull the brush up towards the end of your eyebrow. You may use the point of the brush for this bit, as the point is good for precision.

Step 3: Draw another line starting where your last line finished, pull the brush back down towards the lid. You should now have a little triangle.

Step 4: Fill in this triangle

Step 5: Go over any errors and fill them in. This may make your line thicker than intended, therefore always start with a thin line so there is room to expand.

Step 6: Line your lower waterline with a white kohl pencil.

Step 7: Apply mascara, finish the rest of your face, and go!
