How to cheat winged liner *winkwink*

If you're liquid eyeliner has the tendency to come out like...

This...

...or maybe this

Don't despair :] I have a plan. When I first started using liquid liner, I would get so frustrated when I couldn't get perfect flicks...it drove me up the wall! It came to me (as i'm sure it came to others) that a damp cotton bud would be the saviour of my liner dilemma...
Here's what you do girls!

Grab your damp/moist cotton bud/q-tip and starting from the inside of your eye slowly and gently (don't wanna squish out yer eyeball love) wipe across the top of the liner....

...and all the way out

..until you're left with this.
If you want it really subtle you can stop there, just go over it again if you use the shittest eyeliner in the world like I do (honestly Marks and sparks, could this be any patchier?? hmm?)
If you need to go over it to make it more opaque, just be sure to stay inside the lines, if you mess up, grab your buddy bud :]

If you want more of a flick, put on some mores...

...and do the same as you did at the top, wipe away the excess wonky bits. You'll most likely be left with a long streak of faint liner fanning upwards, just wipe it away :]

Now you're done!
Easy right? no? lol

Later on I'll show you lovelies how to do my fave 3 types of liquid liner..subtle, kitty and extreme :]

Love it! I've got the most steady hand in the world, but in a hurry? It all goes out the window! I hadn't thought to use a Q-tip, as obvious a choice as it seems. Thanks!

I do this when I have to fix my liquid eyeliner too! Except I would rub a little moisturiser on it first =)
