Does this scene sound familiar?: You spend a few minutes in the morning carefully applying eyeliner, but by the time you get home at night, you’re rocking bare lids. If you’re looking to extend the length of your makeup, look to the formula you’re using.
The hard and fast rule is that liquid and gel liners last longer than pencil. But if you’ve never been able to get the hang of the consistency (we have a theory on that one) or you just plain don’t want to ditch your beloved pencil, trace over it with a matching eye shadow—it’ll help to set the pencil. To apply, use a slant-tip brush or the pointy tip of a foam applicator.
