TIP TUESDAY: Bold for Beginners

It's TIP TUESDAY time!

This week we're talking about one of Fall's major eye trends: bold eyeliner. Think cat eyes, thick lines and wingtips. But, when going bold, hard edges and nearly perfect lines are necessary. Bethany shares her tips on a stress-free application.

Liquid eyeliner requires a steady hand, but there are now products available that give the look with less stress. Liquid eyeliner pens are felt-tip markers that control the flow and make the process much easier to manage. Gel eyeliners in a pot are an easy method as well. Use a small hard angle brush to do the work for you. 

Shaky hand? A cheat is to first create your line with eyeshadow then go over it with your liquid eyeliner of choice. Much easier and faster than free handing it. Gently going over the shadow at the edge of the line with a pointed q-tip after dry, will soften the edge and any wobbly mistakes.
