Eyeliner Tutorial – Part 2. Liquid Eyeliner 2 ways

Hello my Suburban Fashionistas.

Eyeliner for Mature eyes? Hell yeah. The perfect winged liner? Easy!

Here it is: Part 2 of my series of Eyeliner tutorials. This time I will show you how I use a liquid liner in 2 different ways:

  • A felt tip, marker type pen
  • A liquid eyeliner with a fine brush

Everyone has their favourites, and their own looks. I am no expert, nor am I a make up professional (anymore) but I wanted to show you how I learned some tricks and tips over the years to get that lovely winged liner.

I am not 18 anymore, (omg my youngest will be 18 next year!!) and I can not apply make up the same way those gorgeous young things do it on Youtube. I have, let’s say, a little extra skin on the eyes.

So here I am, 51 years old, making videos, much to the amusement of my kids and husband.

I don’t care, I am having fun.

And if it helps you, even better!

Check out the first instalment of my Eyeliner tutorials HERE  , I give you a few general hints, how to make it easier to apply eyeliner.

  1. Great vid Barbe, love the sellotape tip. I’m a sucker for a black eyeliner and it’s the one beauty item that I have far too many of. I recently bought a cheapy one from Kmart, I forget the name, but it was a felt tip type and it’s bloody fab. I struggle to get mine to stay put for the whole day, but this one was pretty brilliant.x

  2. LOVE this… I have never been able to get this right and have always wanted to do eyeliner like a pro because I use it everyday. I have always bought a Chanel smudgy kind of liner in charcoal because I couldn’t get the wing right and had no idea how to use a black liquid one. Off shopping today. Thank you. X
