Who needs gel liner - a new make up trick!

Deci.. ideea e foarte simpla: mie un machiaj care nu are dunga neagra de creion, tus, fard, etc.. mi se pare incomplet. Dupa multe cautari si multe rateuri, mi'am gasit tusul preferat - MAC Blacktrack (nu am de ce sa fac review: e bun, imi place la nebunie, nu'mi irita ochii - asa pateam cu cel de la ELF). Dar, intrucat asa ceva este destul de costisitor, mai ales pentru ochi sensibili, nu putem sa ne bagam orice, fara nici o treaba, eu am gasit o solutie!

So, the ideea is very simple: a look that doesnt have a black liner, eyeshadow, pencil, whatever is incomplete for me. After a lot of misses i found my Holy Grail - MAC Blacktrack (i wont be making a review: its awesome, i absolutely love it and it doesnt irritate my eyes - that happened with the ELF gel liner). But, since something like this is pretty expensive, especially for sensitive eyes, we cant just use anything, i found a solution!

Pasul 1: se investeste intr'un fard mat. de CALITATE, nu orice rebut de 2 lei. Credeti'ma, se merita - oricum va trebuie in trusa de machiaj daca sunteti un make up enthusiast. Culoarea e alegerea voastra. Evident ar fi negrul, dar sunt si persoane care prefera maroul pentru un look mai soft. Eu folosesc Black Dog de la Urban Decay - il am dintr'o paleta si il ador.

Step 1: invest in a matte eyeshadow, of a GOOD quality, not the first crap you find. Trust me, its totally worthed - you need to have this in your kit anyway if you are a make-up enthusiast. The color is your choice. The obvious thing is black, but some people go for brown instead, for a softer look. What i have is Black Dog by Urban Decay - got it from a palette and loving it. 

Pasul 2: se investeste in una bucata pensula - angled, subtire, cum va e mai usor, ce va place mai mult, etc etc. Nu conteaza firma sau pretul atata timp cat va descurcati bine cu ea. Eu folosesc MAC 266 dar si o pensula mai ieftina ar face treaba asta. Cum am spus, aici depinde de indemanarea fiecaria.

Step 2: invest in a brush - angled, thin, whatever works best for you and you like most. It doesnt matter where you purchase it as long as its good for you. I use MAC 266 but i dont see way a cheaper brush wouldnt do the job. Like i said, it depends on you and only you!

Pasul 3: se ia sus numita pensula si se inmoaie, preferabil, in apa termala - inca un produs MUST HAVE, dar, daca inca nu vreti sa il testati (pacat, pacat), in apa normala sau mai stiu eu ce. Presupun ca sunt okay si sprayurile de fixare, daca aveti asa ceva - sunt scumpe si bla bla bla, dar ma jur ca si alea se merita, anyway, nu e important pentru aceasta postare si iar rambleuiesc degeaba.

Step 3: take the before mentioned brush and soak it, preferably, in thermal water - another  MUST HAVE product, but if you dont wanna try it out yet (such a shame), in regular water or whatever else. I guess you could also use a fix spray, if you have it - they're expensive and bla bla, but i swear they are also worthed. Anyway, so not the point, im rambling over nothing. 
Sranga - fard ud, Dreapta - uscat

Pasul 4: se traseaza linia pe la ochi PESTE PRIMER!! Inca un must have (vai Doamne, asta deja suna a postare must havce decat a truc de machiaj). Daca folositi doar dunga neagra pe post de machiaj si inmuiati pensula in spray de fixare e posibil sa nu va mai trebuiasca. Daca nu aveti nici primer, nici nimic, asta e, merge si asa, acum nu stiu cat timp o sa dureze.

Step 4: do the line OVER PRIMER! Another must have (this is turning into a must have post rather than what it supposed to be). If you just wanna do the liner as make up and you soak the brush into fix spray, i guess you could skip the primer. If you dont have either if those, just do it like that  but the color might lose intensity during the day.
De la stanga la dreapta: geliner, fard ud, fard uscat

Pasul 5: ramble cu parerea mea despre metoda!!!! Eu am incercat lucrul asta acum cateva zile: mi'a fost nemiscat fardul 14 ore - m'am demachiat, dar tinea si mai mult. Nu a scazut din intensitate, nu nimic, daca nu ma credeti o sa revin cu dovezi. Rezultatul e absolut spectaculos pentru o metoda asa simpla. Si sincer, e foarte buna pentru incepatoare: tusul e destul de complicat de manuit, daca atingi un pic mai sus, uite buba (vorbesc din experienta) plus ca, mai exersam pentru cand avem curaj si bani for the real thing. Puteti trasa linii subtiri, groase, merge atat pe pleoapa superioara, cat si pe cea inferioara - pe waterline e putin meeeeh sincera sa fiu.

Step 5: ramble with my opinion!!! I have tried this method a few days ago: it lasted for 14 hours - i had to remove my make up, or it would have worked for longer. It didnt lose intensity at all, and if you dont believe it, ill come back with proof! The result is absolutely spectacular for such a simple method. And honestly, its perfect if you are a beginer: liners are pretty hard to handle, if you do just one little dot higher than you should, big bubu (speaking out of experience), plus its great practice for when we have the courage and the money for the real thing. You can do thin lines, thick lines, uuper and lover lid - waterline is however a bit meeeeeh.

Asta e postarea, poate v'a fost de ajutor. Daca o sa incercati metoda, sa'mi spuneti daca a dat rezultate satisfacatoare. Eu prefer sa fac lucrul asta in loc de tus lichid, dar asta tine de alegerea personala. Spun asta pentru ca stiu, tusurile lichide sunt ieftine - dar mie mi se pare destul de greu de folosit, fiind uber perfectionista.

So, this is the post, i hope it was helpful. If you try this, lemme know how it turned out. I prefer this any time over liquid eyeliners, but this is a matter of choice. Im saying this because i know liquid liners are inexpensive but for me they are pretty hard to use, being the uber perfectionist that i am.

Thank youz for yer time!
