Hello beauties! How are you?
I love finding multiple uses for products. Blushes and bronzers for eyeshadows, gel liner as brow pomades, etc... My newest love is using liquid lipsticks as eyeliners! The formulas make it so easy to apply, super long lasting and totally smudge-proof! It's also a perfect alternative to those shades you own that may not have looked the best on you. Try it on the eyes and I bet you'll love it!
I used Kat Von D's Lolita as an example because a lot of people purchased the 2nd edition (it was a bad batch) and find that it does not go with their skin tone.
It's a more subtle look than using a black liner, which I love. This is an awesome way to incorporate fun colors into your look without it being super dramatic.... Try a brighter, more vibrant lippie for that drama!
So here is Lolita, keep in mind that there are other formulations of this so yours may look different than mine. This one was a bad batch and they are now selling the shade that it should be. You can use any liquid lipstick! If you'd like to see more looks using another shade, let me know! :)
I like to apply it to the back of my hand and then dip my brush in it. If you will be applying this to someone else or a client, make sure you put it on a palette to stay sanitary!
The brush I absolutely LOVE to use for applying eyeliner is the Morphe M160 -1/16. I get the perfect liner/wing every single time! Use whatever your favorite liner brush is and apply as you would any other liner.
Apply quickly because liquid lipsticks tends to dry and set much faster than a gel liner would but once it's on, it STAYS and looks vibrant all day long.
