We interrupt this blog post to make a new programming announcement. Trend Bite, the weekly quick-tip video blog will no longer be premiering on Friday. Say Happy Hump Day to Trend Bite moving to Wednesday!
Ding ding ding! New year, new battle ladies and this time it’s all eyes on eyeliner. The newest and trendiest eyeliner choices are gel and liquid, but which liner comes out on top? I’m here to break down the pros and cons to help you choose your champion.
First up we have gel liner, a super long lasting, very pigmented liner that comes in a pot. Thicker color and the ability to smudge and blend comes from using a gel. Usually best suited for those with an unsteady hand because the lines created with gel are forgiving and luckily, mistakes are barely noticeable. This is perfect if you are going for the smoky effect, as seen on Angelina Jolie.
Here you can see how her liner is not exact, but heavier and a tad smudged, which gives her a mysterious look.
Getting ready to hit the town? If you’re like me, you wait till the very last second to apply mascara. Then you smear it on your lids and have to redo your makeup – not cool, especially when running late (story of my life!).
Shield yourself using a business card. It really works and will rid you of having to reapply your makeup!
