Eyeko | Skinny Liner

Eyeko | Skinny Liquid Liner

I find that the skinnier the liner, the easier it is to apply and get those winged looks clean and to a point. Liquid liners that come in a little pot with a brush require time and patience, not to mention being a nightmare if you have to rush out and do your make up at work in a rush, so having a pen-like liner that flows into the brush itself is super handy for quick application. 

To get the perfect winged liner for I've found that if I follow the rules of eyebrow measuring I get my best positing for my flick. Place the liner pen at an angle resting on the edge of your nose to the end tip of your eyebrow, just where your lashes finish, in the outer corner of your eye start a faint line about half way to your brow following the angle you've just found. Now that you have a basic line to show you where you need your flick, apply a little bit of pressure to draw your line over the top and release that pressure and pull away to create the tip of your flick. That's your winged part of your liner complete, place your liner back in the starting position at the outer corner of your eye but bring it back gently about 2/3 of the way across the top of your lashes to finish this look then neaten up with a few cotton buds and concealer if you want to make the edges really crisp.

For me, this Eyeko pen is super handy but much more of a daytime product as it isn't a super intense black that I prefer especially at night. The best thing about it is the ease of getting my perfect flick so I tend to use this first as an outline to then trace over with a gel liner to get a deeper colour.
