I am now obsessed with gel eyeliners. Why? Well, if you are like me and do not have the steadiest of hands and normally look like a drag queen when finished applying liquid liner, then gel may be your answer. I had all but given up until I tried some of these more forgiving products.
First, a little goes a very, long way. You don’t need much and with proper storage, a pot of gel eyeliner can last up to two years. Second, by using a fine pointed brush or angle brush for application you can look like a pro. Gel is water/sweat resistant and those that have some shimmer can be buffed a bit to enhance the color.
Make sure to keep the jar closed tightly and out of direct sunlight.
