Ever Use Your Lip Liners as Eyeliners? Let's Talk!

Let's talk liners! If you've seen my Instagram (Liner Highlight too) you'll know I've an eclectic taste when it comes to pens & pencils - both lip & eye. They can transform any makeup look in minutes, especially if you get creative. My one abiding beauty habit is repurposed lip liners. They give great effect with minimal effort - take Tilbury's Pillow Talk Intense for example (seen above)

Pillow Talk Intense is a deep tawny brown that I've been unable to replicate in any number of eyeliners I've bought. Designed to apply smoothly & stay put on your lips throughout the day, it's a tear proof, sweat proof beauty on the eyes too, right?
My waterline here is Urban Decay 24/7 Glide On liner in Torch. These liners aren't called 'Glide On' for nowt, they apply like a dream with zero drag, which is ideal for those with more lid to cover (me) I have them in every mála and drawer I have, because I can trust them to just work. Torch a is burnished orange that changes my eye colour completely 🔥

Top Tip when water & tight lining is to have your pencils SHARP! I have a cheap as chips Primark double parer that I keep in my liner drawer at all times. I would give an outer extremity for Ms Tilbury to release an automatic liner pencil - in my wildest fantasies she takes a leaf from the Smashbox Always Sharp design book - but, until that time, I sharpen slowly and methodically. Trust me, if the only thing stopping you from lining your waterline or your tight line is being squeamish about a pencil in your eye, sharpen them to POINTS. It seems counter-intuitive but trust me.
For other coloured double duty wetsers see KVD Vegan Beauty Everlasting lip liners and any other burgundy/berry/pink/peach pencils. I've swatches in an Instagram Highlight (I have many HERE)

Your waterline looks stunning with the Urban Decay 24/7 Glide On liner in Torch. I've heard great things about these liners, and it seems they live up to their name of 'Glide On.' The fact that they apply smoothly without any drag is a dream, especially for those of us with more lid to cover. Having them in every bag and drawer is a testament to their trustworthiness. Torch, being a burnished orange, sounds like a shade that truly transforms your eye color. Now, I'd like to suggest exploring CapCut mod apk for video and photo editing.
