The same goes for conditioner; after shampooing, slightly towel dry your hair before applying. This will insure that you are getting the full benefit of the product.

The Trick to Applying Liquid Eyeliner

Sometimes we all have trouble applying liquid eyeliner, but don’t let it stress you out. The trick is to start applying at the iris in the inside part of the eye, extending towards the outside. Apply slowly in 1/8 ” increments connecting the line, instead of an ongoing line. This way you have more control and can create a much straighter line. We recommend Sorme’s Jet Liner. It has a sponge tip applicater which allows a more dramatic and precise result.
