Hi, my name is Nancy Paterra and we're going to discuss tips for dramatic eyeliner. When you're getting into dramatic eyeliner it is always best to use a liquid. There are plenty of different liquid liners on the market. Some come in marker form. I've always preferred the ones that have a brush applicator. And what you want to do, look down, is just follow the base of the lash line, almost resting the brush right on the base of the lash line and building it up, actually close, building it up toward the end and following the line of the eye and creating a little wing in the corner, open. Then let that dry and you get a real beautiful dramatic look. Now the wing you can wing it out quite a bit further than what I did if you want more drama. You can do a little less and just kind of tweak it in the corner, close. But if you just rest that brush virtually on the lash line, it gives you a nice guideline to work with. You know, and one thing too when you work with liquid liner, always go section by section. It is way too difficult to do one sweeping line. So just go section by section with it, look at your wings on the sides, make sure they're nice and even, let it dry for a second and then you're good to go. Liquid liner is always excellent for more of a dramatic look and it's fun to work with for evening. Thank you.
