Secrets of applying gel eyeliner
For perfect makeup, it is important to consider the following factors:
- Synthetic brush should have a beveled edge with medium bristles. It should rinse well, as the remnants of eyeliner on the brush will not allow you to draw a line evenly. That is why the brush must be washed after each use.
- It is better to draw eyeliner in a circular motion, which will allow the tool to perfectly fill the bristles of the brush.
Gel eyeliner is great for both daily use and spectacular evening make-up. Even a beginner can draw a neat arrow with it.
