L’oreal Lineur Intense Liquid Eyeliner

L'oreal Lineur Intense Liquid Eyeliner

L’oreal Lineur Intense Felt Tip Liquid Eyeliner in carbon black is a great eyeliner.  It is a drugstore eyeliner which runs  about $8-9.  It is one of my top picks for a liquid eyeliner overall in both department stores and drugstore.  I find it comparable to Lancome’s Artliners, which runs about $29.  If you are looking for a more affordable option, this eyeliner really delivers.  I’ve been looking for a dupe and this is it.

L’oreal Lineur Intense Liquid Eyeliner Best Features

There are many good features about this product but what I find is it’s best feature is its ease of use.  The applicator is just like a  pen, so you can hold it well and get a good line, like your drawing. The felt tip on the applicator makes the liquid glide on smoothly, creating nice and smooth lines.

Using the L’oreal Lineur Intense Liquid Eyeliner you can get a versatility of line thickness which is great. You can get a thin line for an everyday look or a thicker line for a more dramatic look.  You can play and get real creative like creating the cat eye look, which I love to do.

Lining the eye to create a finer line, you need to use just the tip of the applicator using a soft even stroke right up against the lash line.  You may even need to wipe your applicator off a little before you start to get off extra eyeliner color.

To create a medium to thicker line use the side of the applicator lining the eye with a little pressure.  As you are gliding the applicator pressing down gently.  You may need to go over the line to get a darker line.  For an even thicker line go over a couple times building on the first line.

TIP:  If you need a steadier hand, a makeup artist tip is to use a support under your hand that is lining the eye.  On myself,  if I need it I would use my opposite hand.  I place my loosely closed fist on my cheek and let my lining hand rest on my hand and that would create  a steadier hand.  When I am working on someone else I would use my makeup flat puff to rest my hands on.  A  little support is all you need for a steadier hand for a straighrter line.

Another good feature with the L’oreal Lineur Intense Liquid Eyeliner is that it stays on all day,  it doesn’t flake or crack AND it can be removed so easily.  If I make the line too thick, I just take a wet Q-tip and swipe over the edge and thin out my line.  It works like a charm.

Creating the Perfect Eyebrows takes Grooming and Shaping

How to shape your eyebrows


Grooming (tweezing & trimming)

How to shape your eyebrows


1.  Tweeze stray eyebrow hair and get all those strands of hair that are hanging out between your brows, above your nose and  under the brows outside of the eyebrow shape that you want.

Determining the start and the end of your eyebrow

How to shape your eyebrowsHow to shape your eyebrows







To determine the start of your eyebrow,  using your eyebrow brush hold it on the side of your nose straight up to the beginning of your brow.  Where the brush sits is where your brows should start.  The beginning of the brows should line up with the inside of the eye.

To determine the end of your eyebrow(the tail),  using your eyebrow brush hold it at an angle from the side of the nose to the corner side of the eye.  That is where the brow or tail should end.


How to shape your eyebrows

Finding your eyebrow arch

Following your natural hair growth pattern, look for your arch, it should be  3/4 of the way out on the outer side of your brow. The hair on the top part of your brow determines your arch, that is why you should not tweeze above the brows.  Once you found your arch, tweeze under the arch area,  making the brow go up at that point and then back down at the tail of your brow.

Never tweeze hair above the brows UNLESS you are positive you know what you are doing.

2.  Trimming with a little scissors, trim extra long hair that are way out of line, while still keeping the shape you want. (you can also thin out brows if they are extra thick)

At this point , you should now start to see the shape of your brow.  Trim and Tweeze any hair that is out of this shape.  Now we can begin to shape the eyebrow.

Shaping (filling in & blending)

 How to shape your eyebrows

1.  Filling-in the brows is where makeup comes in.  Brow makeup includes eyeshadow color and, or eye pencils.

Using an eyeshadow color on your brows just to fill in is the best and most natural way to go. Just pick up color on your eyebrow brush and fill in area as needed, then brush through to blend.

When using an eye pencil, color in  with light strokes then blending it  with your clean mascara wand.  The eyeshadow powder can be applied over this to set it in.   If you have bare areas, you need to fill them in using an eye pencil.  An eyeshadow powder will not adhere to the skin and will not stay all day unless there is hair to hold the color.How to shape your eyebrows

2.  Blending is last, I take my clean mascara wand or any old toothbrush and comb through brows blending color to create a more natural look!

Eyebrow Colors

Choosing the right color makeup for your brows you always try to match as close as possible to your natural brow hair color. (colors go for pencils as well)  These are just colors that I’ve tried.

Before summer ends, I want to talk about a favorite summer trend, turquoise. It never goes out of style, year after year.   This summer, I’ve never seen it stronger than ever, especially in nail color.  It’s such a prettty complement pop of color that just makes a statement.  In all areas of beauty and fashion, turquoise can accentuate and give a pop of color to your total look.
