|Le Metier de Beaute Precision Liquid Liner in Noir - £25|
The nib of this eyeliner is perfect and there is no clicking etc involved to get the product to flow, it's like a felt tip, but a very luxurious one designed by Mont Blanc. It was used on me by makeup artist Mikey Castillo and he had two main tips to get the best out of it.
- No one can draw a perfect straight line so don't even attempt it. Instead, use the nib on its side and pat the product on in sections, sort of like joining the dots but you are joining mini lines. This enables you to get an even, precise line that can be as thin or thick as you like.
- For more definition, aim the pen as if you were to line the upper inner rim (don't actually line this), and then dot the pen between the lashes. This way you are aiming the pen upwards rather than downwards. It can feel like this is achieving nothing but if you complete one eye and then compare it to the other, you should see a difference.
I received the Le Metier Liquid Liner in Noir in a gift bag given to me at the PR event I attended at Selfridges. However, being quite stupid I didn't check what was in said gift bag before I bought my own choices (including the liquid liner) so now I have two. Normally I would be very annoyed at this but I can see myself using the product so much I'm glad I have a back up.
The Le Metier de Beaute Liquid Liner in Noir is available from Liberty and Selfridges for £25.
