Try This!

Much like the last "technique" I talked about in a Try This! post this one I had to do a couple of times during #LipSwatchWeek. I am still a novice at liquid eyeliner and I've found the most infuriating thing about it is that it comes at the end stage of applying eye makeup. So the potential to ruin everything you've done before is rather high.

Stress.

I don't be bout that starting over business so as I realise I ain't getting what I want I does reach for a pigment.

A still photo doesn't do those justice; check out their dimension here. I too once avoided pigments like the plague; complaining that they were troublesome and messy, but now I truly appreciate them for their diversity, complexity and ability to turn a botched liner job into a smouldering eye :)

Simply smudge the pigment along the lash line and presto! What's even better is that it takes very little product to get the job done. A word of caution: there will be fall out since you're dealing with a loose product so whenever possible do your eye makeup before applying foundation.

How do you use pigments?
