Makeup Pencil and Eyeliner

Makeup Pencil and Eyeliner

What it is and what it is for?


The eyeliner/pencil is a cosmetic used to enhance the eyes, being used around the eye contour to create a variety of aesthetic illusions. Eyeliner has been used since ancient Egypt. In the Middle Ages, the habit was abandoned because the Church considered it a form of vanity.
Normally aimed at the female market, in recent years it has broadened its appeal to the male market.


What are the most used ingredients and their function?


Makeup pencils have several ingredients, the most common of which are the following:
Film formers are designed to establish a thin layer on the skin, making application easier.
Thickening agents make up most of what the eyeliner is made of, both in weight and in volume.
Pigments make up the color of the product. The most common include iron oxides for shades of black and brown, titanium dioxide for lighter colors (including white), chromium oxide for green and ultramarine for blue.


Which types exist and what are their differences?


You can choose between a liquid eyeliner, a pencil, a gel jar or a pen eyeliner.
The liquid eyeliner, since it does not rub, is perfect for a classic make-up. However, it may not be a good choice for those who do not have much practice, as it is a little more difficult to apply and more complicated to correct once dry. To avoid mistakes, try making a stroke with a thin pencil first, and you can even choose to make small dots along the lash and join them later.
The gel jar provides precise results and, once dry, offers good fixation and pigmentation. This type of eyeliner is easy to apply, just use a thin or angled brush and, for great precision, try to apply with your eyes open.
For those who don't like using liquid eyeliner or a brush and need more color than what a pencil offers, the pen is a great solution. The pen guarantees fixation throughout the day and precision in the application. For simple use, simply lay the pen diagonally from the nostril to the outer corner of the eye.


What is the most used packaging format and what are the most frequent sizes?


Eyeliners/makeup pencils can appear in liquid eyeliner, a pencil, a gel jar or a pen eyeliner.
Their quantities can vary from 1ml to 10ml.


What to take into account when choosing an eyeliner?


Since there are several types of eyeliner, it is best to choose the one that is easiest to apply on a daily basis and another for when you want a more refined makeup.


What are the recommendations for use and tips?


Don't start by drawing a line, draw points along the eyelid to mark the line and the angle. Then, start to join the dots and gently draw a line.
Do not stretch your eyelid by hand while drawing. Pulling the eyelid may be instinctive, but it only ruins the process. The streak must be drawn with the eyes in their natural position.
In general, you should pay attention to the makeup you use with the eyeliner and the more dramatic the risk, the more natural the makeup should be, so that only the eyes stand out.


What are the pros and cons of using an eyeliner?


Eyeliners can promote greater beauty of the look, but we must also take into account the disadvantages.
In certain cases, allergic reactions can be triggered by these products. In such cases, it will be important to check the composition of the product and make sure that none of them could be harmful to the skin.
On the other hand, it is an indispensable cosmetic to highlight the look, from the cat eye to the graphic trace of the fifties with its timeless fascination.
