How To Apply Gel Liner in 5 Easy Steps

by

I never thought I’d leave liquid liner alone, but a few months ago I made the switch to gel liner and can I just say … I’m NEVER going back! Aside, from the smooth finish, as someone who’s gone through a million or more q-tips over the years trying to get the perfect line day in and day out, since making the switch, I’ve barely used them at all. Getting the perfect line has become so much easier, however it’s still much different that if you were using a power or pencil.

Below are 5 easy steps I nabbed from Bobbi Brown of how to apply gel liner like a pro

STEP1: Start with a slim and tapered, synthetic bristle brush. If you don’t use a synthetic version, the gel could ruin your brush.

STEP 2: Dip the tip of the brush into the pot to capture the gel. Bring the brush up the sides of the pot to remove any clumps.

STEP 3: Apply the liner very close to the lash line from the outer corner in. If there’s a gap between the eyeliner and your lash line, fill it in with extra liner.

STEP 4: Open your eyes and look to see if you need to make the line thicker (it’s totally up to you). If so, layer the liner and extend outward.

STEP 5: If you want to line your lower lashline, forgo gel and use powder in the same shade as the gel liner that you used. Gel is best for lining your upper lashline.
