My MIL is an immigrant from India, there is an eyeliner from back home that has religious / cultural connotations. Basically it’s soot and ghee (like butter..) mixed together and it forms a black paste that’s applied to the eyes of babies especially to ward off the evil eye.
Because of culture etc I live with my in laws and she keeps wanting to put this eyeliner on my babies eyes (twins) I keep telling her I’m not happy with it, I don’t want foreign matter in my poor babies eyes.
My husband is also vehemently against this and he caught his mom doing it when I was at work. He told her off and told her she was shitty because the babies were understandably fussing at the product in their eyes.
She is accusing me of ‘white washing’ him and that I’m being a disrespectful daughter in law but I’m just trying to protect my kids.
I didn't spring for the palette but did get the Rich Hazel eyeliner ($14 US) because I love a good brown eyeliner and I (mistakenly) thought with how long he said he worked on this that it would be a slam dunk. Fool me once... Honestly, don't think I've ever used a liner as bad as this. For context, I don't have issues generally with eyeliner, non-oily lids, more on the aging/dry side.
It's not brown. It's very very dark and looks black for the period of time that it lasts on my eyes.
I didn't tight-line with this, I used it in my upper lash line, no wing or anything fancy. Regardless, it ran into my eyes and I ended up with racoon eyes within about 5 minutes.
An hour later, not only does it look like I went on a bender and am embracing heroin chic, it's no longer existent at all on my upper lash line. It's just smudged everywhere around my eye. It's similar to what my eyes look like when I use a cleansing balm to clean off my eye and face makeup. It's not a great look.
Guys i just wanted to share this cause i’m so freakin excited! I’m 35 and have been using liquid eyeliners pretty much since i started putting makeup on. So approximately 20 years of experience. I tried so many brands, some were good, but never perfect (i tried a lot of them, trust me). Until today i got Too Faced Better Than Sex liquid liner and... O.M.G. Best one i used so far! The thinnest line and the easiest to put on, great matte texture and it stays on for the whole day. I’m blown away for real <3 Hope someone finds this review helpful :)
Edit: forgot to mention it’s a pen liner.
Before filling in:
After filling in:
I filled it in and it’s noticeably darker and fuller at least from my POV. I’m just worried it dosent look natural, ive always struggles with sparse eyebrows. I filled them in with a black eyeliner by making small careful strokes only took like 5 min. Can you guys please be hinest and tell me if it looks natural and how it looks? I don’t want anyone to know I’m using makeup so for me looking natural is my most important criteria. Also any additional advice on filling them In or other methods would be appreciated.
You guys I’m so excited!!! I’ve been struggling with this since middle school and have looked pretty stupid on occasion because I just didn’t know how to do eyeliner for my crinkly hooded eyes. But I think I cracked it!! Plus my crush said it looked good so I’m over the moon !!!
Edit: y’all 😭 I’m not an mua okay promise u won’t be disappointed when I post a picture tomorrow 😭😭 let it be known that I’m terrible at makeup and today is the day I made it look OKAY 😭😭
Edit 2: okay to avoid people being disappointed here is what it looks like. Nothing amazing, just suits my face more than everything else I’ve tried. The real eureka moment is when I realized that if I angle the wing toward my eyebrow I look really stupid, and that a more horizontal-ish line is what really elongates my eye
Edit 3: I feel like it was sorta hard to see so I exaggerated it and exposed my facial hair online so that everyone can ho... keep reading on reddit ➡
Longtime lurer and finally make my first post - My oily eyelids make pretty much most of the liquid eyeliner smudge on me, leaving a panda eye effect after three to four hours wear. I recently found a sample size Givenchy eyeliner pencil that manage to stay put and have fallen in love with the soft liner looks.
So I need your help peeps! What is your holy grail eyeliner pencil for both tight-lining and baby wing? Help a girl out!
PS. I moved to Dubai a few months ago - something withstanding the 40 degree celcius heat would be perfect!
PPS. Can't wait to make all your acquaintances!
I've been waiting for blacktrack to come back into stock on Mac's website for ages. I was frustrated finding out it's out of stock on Ulta, too.
A quick Google today showed me that no one seems to be stocking it except eBay and mercari.
So I googled "Mac fluidline discontinued" and it ruined my night.
I know there are others but this one is so iconic.
Mac, what are you doing??
Not a liquid liner, but a trusty pencil liner that would withstand humidity, tears, oily eyelids etc.
How do you guys use up gel pencil liners (ie Urban Decay 24/7 pencil liners)? I am taking a break from trying to pan eyeshadows and focus more on eyeliners right now. Since we are wearing masks in public in focusing less on the face and more on my eyes and need some inspo! I don’t usually do anything crazy, just a simple line from the outer corner of my eyes towards the inner corner (classic look I guess) and then I do a tiny line underneath my lash line and just like the outer third. I really enjoy how this looks on my blue eyes especially with the fun colors, but I wanted to see if there are other ways I can use them? My eyes are sensitive and I don’t like to do my waterline. I have some neutral colors as well as more fun ones like Goldmine, Voodoo, Lucky and Woodstock.
Edit: for anyone who has panned a pencil liner, how long did it take you?
Hey y'all, I'm in search of an eyeliner that's waterproof and doesn't smear off halfway through my shift. I've tried dozens of brands and nothing is working. I've even tried different primers and settings sprays too. I'm a nurse, so wearing a mask plus goggles and a face shield now isn't helping my eyeliner game either. Needless to say I'm a hot sweaty mess come the end of my shift. Any tips, tricks, or suggestions are greatly appreciated!
Okey. This might be the silliest post ever made but ffs.
I have done my waterline the same way 10000 times. No primer. One slide with my best eyeliner pen and everything is fine. Today like 3 mm on my right waterline won't accept it. I can't get the eyeliner to stay.
It is not that it is gone after 30 minutes or so. I have tried to put on 3 different eyeliners that usually works as a charm but it does not stain my skin at all when I slide the pen against it. I have tried like 20 swipes with three different pens and nothing is showing on that part of the skin. I have tried to put on eyeshadow primer and eyeshadow before putting on the eyeliner with the same result. I have washed my face twice and redone everything twice.
The left waterline is just normal and 99% of the rest of the right waterline is black and beautiful. I just have a empty space in the inner corner of one eye and it just make me furious.
Dear Reddit what is wrong with me?
Is it a thing now to not wear eyeliner?! YouTubers I watch just go straight to lashes. I can’t not wear my black eyeliner, I just feel like it completes the look and makes my eyes look bigger and wider. And also, does everyone use a coordinating eyeshadow smudged along the lower lash line? I feel like it makes my eyes look smaller and sometimes makes me look sickly, lol!
So I've fallen in love with my sample size tattoo liner by Kat von D that I got a long time ago from Sephora, but I'd like to...not use her products for obvious reasons. Is there any liner similar to the tattoo liner that anyone would recommend
Edit: so I guess Kat isn't affiliated with the brand KVD, and even if she was, she is no longer antivax. She did her research and now claims to be for vaccines. (i havent really paid attention to the beauty community since like 2017). I also was following Jeffree Star (yikes) and i guess I just kinda avoided it like everyone else (i don't buy too much makeup anyway, and the beauty community lowkey makes me nervous, so I was trying to tread lightly)
IM SO EXCITED YAYAYAYAYAYAYYATA I HAVE REALLY SHAKY HANDS AND HOODED EYES SO EYELINER ALWAYS LOOKS REALLY BAD BUT I FINALLY DID IT BECAUSE I FOLLOWED THE TIPS OF ASIAN YOUTUBERS (because hooded eyes are typically an asian trait but i’m not asian btw lol) SO IT LOOKS GOOD AND IM SO HAPPY MY MAKEUP FINALLY MATCHES MY AESTHETIC 😼😼😼😼
I've tried checking Google for an answer to this problem to no avail. I recently started wearing eyeliner, but I've been struggling to actually get the pen to work on my skin. Even trying it on the back of my hand, I can drag it across huge areas with little to no liner being applied. I tried the same thing on my significant other's hand and they immediately had a thick black line. I tried using primer to apply as well as making sure nothing was on my eyelids, and neither fixed the problem. The same thing happens no matter what brand I use as well. Does anyone have any advice?
Edit: thanks a ton to everyone for all the suggestions! I ended up switching to stick, and using a facial lotion as a primer! It goes on wayyyy easier now
