Eyeliner is very important for Scene Emo make up, it helps to define your eyes and create the look you're after: soft everyday or evening vampy look. There are two types of eyeliner: liquid or pencil. Liquid eyeliners are ideal for creating thin perfect lines along your lashes, and require steady hand. Pencil eyeliners are more forgiving, great for beginners, and are really good for smudgy thicker lines. Choose the one you feel more comfortable with, if you prefer liquid eyeliners, pick waterproof one so it won't run during a day. If you opt for pencil liner, get soft one, so you can apply it (and re-apply during a day) easily. Maybelline makes great soft pencil eyeliners.
Few tips how to apply eyeliner:
- Rest your elbow on a hard surface, and rest your wrist on your face.
- Tilt your head back slightly and bring your eyes to a half-open state. This creates good angle for application, while allowing you to see what you're doing.
- Pull your upper eyelid gently with your finger to the side and slightly up. This stepis optional, as many people prefer applying eyeliner on relaxed eye. To prevent the eyelid from shaking if you do not pull it, focus gently but intently on your eyes in the mirror. If you are applying eyeliner to someone else's eyes, ask them to choose one spot on the wall to look at.
