Eye-opening eyeliners

Have you been wearing the same eyeliner since you started wearing makeup? Beauty Expert Jessica Metivier shares some eye-opening options that will change the way you look at eyeliner forever.

"Time for a beauty break," says Jessica." A favorite eyeliner choice might be a pencil, but did you know there are two other ways to define your eyes?"

Eyeliner is one of those products that you have probably been wearing since you started putting on makeup. If you're wearing the same kind every day, it might be because you just don't know the difference between pencils and liquids and gels.

Pencils come in a variety of colors, are made by almost every cosmetic company, and since they look like a pencil, if you can write with a pencil you can probably put on pencil eyeliner.

Another kind of pencil is a Kohl pencil. It's made of a softer material and it's virtually made to smudge, so a Kohl pencil is perfect if you're doing a smokey eye or just that smoldering, sexy look with your liner.

If a clean, crisp and highly pigmented line is what you're going for, you'll want to try a liquid. Liquid liners almost always come with their own applicators. Some liquid eyeliners come with a felt tip, almost like a permanent marker.

The newest eye lining option is gel, which is applied with a brush. Gel is almost a combination between a pencil and a liquid. It will give you a deep, pigmented color and crisp line, but also allows you to smudge just a little bit.

"So now that you know how to use all three different types of eyeliner you can expand your make up options," says Jessica, "Don't be afraid to experiment and mix it up a little!"
