I NEVER wear liquid eyeliner, mostly because I’m just not adroit enough to apply it evenly. Ever since Emily Katz’s tips on how to apply though, it’s been getting easier. I finally gave in, and tried to use it for my friend’s wedding on Friday, and it was and it was actually not half bad. I guess keeping your eyes slight open whilst applying works wonders.
So the thing is, I used Wet n Wild’s H20 Proof Liquid Eyeliner (which is only $4 and works great by the way). The only problem was I got a little on my lashes, and it’s so waterproof that I couldn’t unclump them at all! I wanted so desperately to separate them somehow but I didn’t have remover on me, and I didn’t want to force it to separate because I was afraid of pulling it out. I also just finished my eye makeup so I didn’t want to mess it up, so I just applied mascara over it and hoped no one would notice.
The whole ordeal reminded me of that scene in Charlie Wilson’s War, where Julia Robert’s character is seen doing her makeup, and after applying her mascara, she takes a safety pin to separate her lashes.
Of course, that WOULD be the scene that I remember best. I wonder if anyone really separates their lashes that way. I reckon that’s not the safest method, and wouldn’t recommend it…though I have to admit, I did find myself in a desperate moment looking for safety pins (thankfully, didn’t find any).
It’s finally naturally washing out (after a couple days now!), but made me think – how do you separate your lashes? Do you have any useful tips for me if you find yourself in a predicament like I clumsily did?
