3 REASONS TO USE FELT TIP EYELINER
Now that you know about our best felt tip eyeliners, perhaps you’d like to learn a few reasons it’s worth using one in the first place.
Use a felt tip eyeliner if…you’re not an eyeliner expert. Like we mentioned, a felt tip eyeliner will make lining your eyes much easier if you’re new to liquid formulas. The precise applicator will keep mess-ups at bay.
Use a felt tip eyeliner if…you’re short on time. In a rush? You certainly don’t want to spend extra time navigating a brush tip or learning how to use a separate eyeliner brush to line your eyes. Felt tip eyeliner gives you more control, allowing you to line your eyes quickly.
Use a felt tip eyeliner if…you love convenience. Who wants to carry around a separate eyeliner brush? A felt tip eyeliner has everything you need in one product. Pop one in your purse or makeup bag for an eyeliner option that’s always ready to go.
HOW TO USE FELT TIP EYELINER
Ready to put one of the above felt tip eyeliners to use? Here’s how!
Step #1: Pop off the cap. Prep your felt tip eyeliner by removing the cap and exposing your applicator.
Step #2: Start small. Position the felt tip at your inner corner, then begin by creating a small, thin stroke. You can always make it thicker!
Step #3: Build out your liner. Continue to line your lash line by connecting short, steady strokes rather than drawing a single continuous line.
Bonus: Wing it out. If you choose, extend your line past your inner corner to create a sharp, precise wing.
