I love how liquid eye-liner looks in contrast to pencil. You can achieve a clean, fresh, and sophisticated look with the use of this genre of eye-liner. But I have a predicament.

I have been wearing makeup for about two years now, and I have still not mastered the art of applying liquid eye-liner. Either I do not choose the right kind or something else. I have a good steady hand, but here are the problems I run into when applying liquid eye-liner:

  • It runs... gross, eh?
  • It flakes off during the day
  • When applying, I do not get enough on the applicator: I get an uneven line
  • It smears, probably because it is not thick enough

Help! What brand of liquid eye-liner would you suggest? Do you do anything special before applying it?
