Thanks to everyone for the responses

I have one more question. My eyes water when I apply eyeliner to the insides of the bottom rim. Is there any way to stop this (I'm using the new chanel vert pencil)?

Or is it just some eyes do cry and some don't, and mine just do??

Sometimes though tis a great advantage when people assume you 'fragile' and treat you with the utmost care in case you cry harder

To use the fill in photoshop, you right-click on the gradient button in the left box and change it to paint bucket.

What number photoshop does everyone have? I heard they are coming out with a #8 and it's going to have a state of the art chip that will prevent it from being 'burned' and loaded more than 30 times. Crazy!

Another way of using liquid eyeliner is to to use BOTH liquid and pencil. I line the inner rims with a pencil first (between the lashes) and make it a little bit thick. Then I go over it with a liquid liner. All you have to do is follow the line. For the top eye lid another way to have a striaght line with a liquid eyeliner is to pull your eyelid from the side, making it a bit elongated, and then run the liquid eyeliner along the lid with one single stroke. If it comes out to thin, then go over it again. One single stroke will make a more even line. If your hands get shaky, even out the line with a Q-tip dipped in eyeliner remover, but be careful not to smudge your line.
This is usually what I do. I find that it's easier to get right into the lashes with a pencil, then i finish the look with liquid. I'm not sure if it's me but if I use just a liquid, I'll often have to go over and get into the lashes anyway, because it just doesn't look right, almost like there are tiny gaps at the lashline. If you're having steadiness of hand issues, I usually rest the base of my hand/my wrist against the side of my chin or my jaw/cheek.

My eyes used to water like mad when I started playing with makeup when I was little. And the first time I got contact lenses, I sat in that office for an hour trying to get one out. I couldn't bring myself to poke my own eyeball. I got over it, and now my eyes don't dare water, or they know what's coming to them!

I find that I like the eyeliners most that are a cross between both pencil and liquid liners, such as Mary Kay's eyeliners...not liquid, but not pencil - very easy to apply. They're the self-sharpening ones. Love them love them!

i love liquid liner!!

Loreal's great.. i find it best to use the one with the REAL BRUSH.. NOT the vinyl tips.

MAC also has a great liner.. it's a cake form.. and you wet your MAC thinline brush, and use the cake liner as you would with paint.

Getting the perfect line: takes practice practice practice!

i find it best to 'anchor' my hand on my cheek, in order to keep it steady. That way you get a straight line. This will also help you make the line as thick as you want or as thin as you want. Wiping the brush gently on your tube (if you use the Loreal liquid liner) will help remove any excess liner, and it'll be easier for you to make a thinner line.

Sorry, but i only line my eyelid, not under my eyes. Sort of Egyptian/Catwoman look... with the liner extending out a little bit and curving up to make it look like i have lashes sticking out at the end. Also helps make your eyes look even more almond-shaped.

When i used to use pencil eyeliners, and when i used to line under my eyes, i liked Revlon's waterproof eyeliners. they were soft enough, but not too soft, and didn't run away or smudge throughout the day.

good luck!

i'm adding this reply b/c i've been a liquid eyeliner chicky since 1991

but this weekend i tried RIMMEL's KOHL eyeliner (Chianti) which i've applied over the top portion of my liquid-eyeliner-lined-upper-eyelid, which gives me a nice transition of colour from black to plum to a lighter plum shadow.

i MUST say: this Rimmel Kohl eyeliner is FANTASTIC!
it didn't tug and the line was very very smooth and easy to apply.
i like it so much i'm going to buy the Jungle green (which i hear turns out to be a lovely teal colour).


So:

Pencil Eyeliner, i'd highly suggest: Rimmel Kohl (i haven't tried it on lower lid, so i don't know if it smudges too much, but on upper lid lasted all day)

Liquid: Loreal lineur intense

Cake: MAC (with the MAC liner brush)

Eyeshadow Pencil: Loreal (i forget the name - think it's called Eye Smoker - it's a thicker pencil and blends and lasts better than any i've tried)
