If you’ve ever tried to put liquid eyeliner on when in a hurry, you know the inevitable catastrophie: hemmoraging makeup remover, Kleenex fatalities, and the death of ten otherwise valuable minutes. Not to mention, you must now find a means to treat your puffy red eyes (more tissue casualties!).
Unfortunately, we haven’t found a cure for this problem, but we have come up with a few suggestions. Besides listening to your intuition and applying liquid eyeliner only in a careful and patient fashion (and never in a car!), we recommend snagging Urban Outfitter’s Soft Touch Eyeliner. Complete with a fine brush applicator similar to the tip of a fancy calligraphy pen, the makeup affirms our prior suspicion: liquid eyeliner is an art form.
Available in black, purple, and (our personal favorite) BLUE, for only $6 each, this gives you yet another reason for an Urban fieldtrip – but if you’re worried about a spending binge, we recommend ordering online. Like any art form, wearing this stuff does take time master, but the outcome stuns...when done correctly.
