how to apply eyeliner like a pro

What I love about the web is the plethora of material that is right at your fingertips on any given day.

Case in point...

A reader on our blog, leaves a comment about her sometime issues with eyeliner. I thought, well I know if she's having a tough time...so are others.

A couple of clicks on youtube.com and voila...instant video tutorial.

What's so amazing about the tutorial you are about to see (besides the cool music) is that your instructor (the awesome Michelle Phan) teaches you how to apply eyeliner on yourself...by doing it on herself. She gives some amazing tips too.

Oh...and she covers all of the eyeliner types...pencil, liquid, and cream/gel...talk about thorough.

Behold...







Here are a few of my fave products that will get the job done:

Redpoint StayPut Eyeliner ($21) A great find...literally...it was in my bag from the Total Beauty Summit. It has a smudger at one end and also has a sharpener. Plus the color (Conga) is a great metallic brown, without being too metallic-y that you can't wear it for day. Oh and as for its stay-put-id-ness...uh...wow...really stays put soon after you apply, so smudge quickly.

Clinique Quickliner for Eyes ($14.50) There's a reason why it's on everyone's list as a "must buy". It's fairly inexpensive for a department store brand. It lasts. It's easy to apply. It comes with a smudger at one end (Christine will tell you...she hearts companies that do this) and it also comes in a great assortment of colors.

Bobbi Brown Long-Wear Gel Eyeliner ($19) True to its name...it is long wearing. Comes in an adorable pot and makes me feel chic when I put it on. A "must have" in any makeup bag.

Global Goddess Beauty Cairo Eyes Liquid Kohl Eyeliners ($22) Amazingly easy to apply and comes in a cute container. Plus, who wouldn't want to be a Global Goddess?

Have fun.
