You Use That To Apply Eyeliner?! ♡


Winged liner is a must for me, I just love the look it gives and I feel weird if I don't wear it. I'm all about making it as easy as possible, meaning I'm constantly changing and trying out different brushes to see will any make it easier. 

I used to use winged liner brushes and thought they were my holy grail and I will admit they are great, especially if you don't have a steady hand or are just starting out with gel liner. After the winged liner brushes I moved onto the Real Techniques silicone liner brush as I liked the sharper edge and more control it gave me. Again I thought this was my holy grail (anything that makes eyeliner easy I grant as 'holy grail') and after months and months of using it one day I picked up the Real Techniques 'detailer brush' as I don't use it for anything else and decided to apply my gel liner with it. I'm not quite sure why I even thought to do this but I'm glad I did as I really loved the result. (See FOTD post here where I used brush to do my eyeliner)

As the detailer brush has quite long bristles I decided to also try out the Real Techniques 'accent brush' as again I don't really use it for anything and I wanted to see would I like it as much as the 'detailer brush' This one is a lot easier to use if you may not have a steady hand or you prefer to be really close to your eye while looking in the mirror and applying product. Results wise it was the exact same although I do prefer to have bristles a little longer when doing liner so I do prefer the 'detailer brush' but I would definitely use both!

Definitely something to try out if you haven't already as they allow you to have a lot of control and give you a nice sharp edge and clean line.

What brushes do you use to apply liner?

  1. I've never used gel liner but I am desperate to try it. I don't wear liner every day as I find it a huge faff!
