Top 5 Advantages of Liquid Eyeliner
Applying liquid eyeliner is generally much easier than putting on powder-based eyeliners. This is because liquid eyeliner flows more naturally onto your eyelid and the surrounding skin than powder-based eyeliner. Applying powdered eyeliners, if you want to get an even application, generally requires the user to pull on their eyelid. Liquid eyeliner can be applied gently without pulling on the eyelid and still result in an even coating. Removing the tugging, pulling and maneuvering not only saves you work and prevents you from missing portions of your application, but it can also greatly reduce the chance of you smudging your eyeliner application while trying to get your fingers out of the way.
Several brands of liquid eyeliner provide waterproof coverage, something that is much harder to achieve with a powder-based eyeliner application. Not only does this mean that your eyeliner will be ruined by an unexpected rain shower, but waterproof coverage also helps the eyeliner to stay in place when you are out under hot lights; or any other situation where small amounts of sweat could potentially ruin your makeup job. If this is a feature that you are looking for, make sure that the liquid eyeliner that you choose is waterproof. However, not all brands of liquid eyeliner will resist water, and you do not want to be given a false confidence by assuming that your brand has this feature when it does not. Take some time to read the fine print about the certain kind of eyeliner that you are interested in purchasing.
Many of the colors available for liquid eyeliners can make a sharper or bolder statement than similar powdered eyeliners. This does not mean that they will seem loud or out of place; liquid eyeliner colors simply tend to be more defined and give you many more options when it comes to expressing yourself through your makeup. While both liquid and powder eyeliners can be either subtle or obvious, powdered eyeliners achieve these states by either blending in with the skin that they are applied to or creating an obvious application through the use of color or layers of eyeliner. Liquid eyeliners instead allow you to have a subtle or obvious application by choosing from a wide variety of colors and application techniques, with the end result being smooth regardless of the option that you choose.
