I'm breaking up with liquid eyeliner
I love liquid liner. Or perhaps I should say that I love the look of liquid liner. That thick, black line ending in a little flick? Perfection. However, I find that on me, it is basically impossible to achieve. It is especially impossible at 7 in the morning when I am usually doing my makeup. On the off chance that I get one eye right, the other is always an asymmetrical mess, and I usually smudge them too. So now I'm done.
I recently posted about my Topshop Magic Liner which is absolutely amazing. I've also rediscovered gel liners and I'm loving the Maybelline one. The one exception to my liquid liner aversion may be the Illamasqua Precision Ink, I have mine in Wisdom which is a gorgeous khaki bronzey shade and surprisingly easy to apply for an eyeliner novice like me. I am seriously considering picking up the black one on my upcoming holiday but I'm not sure if I'm just setting myself up for failure.
