The eyeliner was first used in Ancient Egypt and Mesopotamia , as a dark black line around the eyes. Later it was often used by Arab women. In the 1960s , liquid eyeliner began to be used to create thick black and white lines around the eyes.


Pencil: It is the basic for any makeup . Your application is very simple. Ideal for defining the lash line.

Gel: Its aqueous formula allows the pigment to remain fixed on the skin when the water evaporates. Removing residues is easy if correction is needed.

Liquid: It is a liquid pigment ; add instant glamor. It is difficult to apply, but it is the most effective way to change the shape of the eyes .

Kohl: It is a very fine powder that, thanks to its earthy texture, gives the eyes a mysterious charm.

Tips for applying the eyeliner

  • Use the liquid eyeliner on the upper eyelid as it runs too much.
  • For eyesthat are close together, sharpen the lines on the inside and outline in white.
  • For eyes that are far apart, the edge should be outlined in black.
  • When delineating, it is convenient to raise the eyebrows without wrinkling the liner, in order to keep the eyelids taut and to delineate more easily.
  • You must choose a correct shade that suits the makeup and the shade of the iris.
