Applying my own make-up is definitely not one of my talents. Make-up artists are exactly that . . . artists, and I have no artistic ability whatsoever. So it’s no surprise that I absolutely love having my make-up applied by a professional. Since that’s not something that I do very often, I’m always searching for easy-to-apply make-up. Liquid eyeliner is definitely not what I think of when I say easy-to-apply. Frankly, it’s always scared me. I’ve tried to apply it a few times, with a horrendous, uneven outcome. When I received an offer to try the new Lancôme Artliner 24H eyeliner, I thought that since I’m a woman in my 30’s, it’s probably about time that I learn how to apply liquid liner.
Lancôme’s Artliner is celebrating it’s 20th anniversary, and to celebrate this milestone, Lancôme has launched the new Artliner 24H in 10 gorgeous and intense colours.
One of my main struggles with my skin, including my eyelids, is that it’s extremely oily, which means my make-up usually melts down my face quicker than it takes me to apply it. Liquid eyeliner has always intrigued me because it seems like it would last longer than a pencil eyeliner, but again, I’ve never been able to apply it properly. Lancôme must have sensed my concerns because they created 8 how-to video tutorials that break down different techniques for applying liquid liner into simple step-by-step strokes.
Below is the video I used to learn how to apply my favourite colour of the Artliner 24H collection, Royal Blue.
After watching the video and learning the trick of applying liquid liner in 3 sections starting from the outside of the eye, I was actually able to apply it pretty easily. I really love the smoothness of the felt-tip applicator which easily applied a dense and precise line. What impressed me the most was the long-lasting and smudge-proof formula. I wore the liner all day long and it didn’t smudge at all! That’s truly shocking for me because I’ve never experienced that before. It will take me a little bit of practice to perfect my liquid eyeliner application, but this is definitely the easiest-to-apply liner I’ve used. Plus, the colours are just gorgeous.
