Hi, I'm Kelli. I'm an aesthetician and makeup artist at Ulta Salon and Cosmetics, and I'm going to show you how to apply eyeliner with a flat brush such as this one here which is flat all the way across. It's also a stiffer bristled brush, so you'll be able to get a stiffer line for your liner. I'm going to work with a cream eyeliner. This will also work well if you want to use it with like a shadow or a powder liner. So, we're just going to kind of dip it into our liner. You want to try to make sure not to gunk up the brush too much. You shouldn't like dig your brush into your liner. You just kind of want a little bit right on the tip of the brush. And then, what you're going to do is you're going to get right into the lashes and you're just going to kind of apply it in a wiggling motion kind of pressing it into the lash line. These brushes are really great for really getting into those lashes, and really pressing that liner into the lash line to get a really defined eye, and really thicken up that lash line. You're going to have a hard time with this brush if you try to draw one continuous line. It's not really meant for that. It's also a great brush if you want to make your eye a little bit smokier, cause' you can actually press it into the lash and kind of brush it upwards a little bit and give it a smokier appearance. Same thing underneath. You're just going to get right up under the lashes, and just kind of do a little wiggle and just kind of press it right into that lash line. You can also see the flat brush applies your liner a little bit heavier too if you like a more defined eye, or if you like a little bit more dramatic liner. So, that's how you would want to apply your eyeliner with a flat brush.
