Choosing a quality eyeliner

A good pencil has a fairly soft lead. Before purchasing, you can use a probe by drawing a line on the back of your wrist. The lead should not crumble, and the line should not spread and smear over the skin. A pencil that is too soft is not stable enough. The makeup done by him does not look very neat. A lead that is too hard can injure the delicate skin of the eyelids.
Wooden and automatic pencils are available in modern stores. The bodies of the automatic cosmetic products are made of plastic. They do not require sharpening, which is certainly very convenient.
Waterproof eyeliners aren't for everyone. Their use can cause allergies, a burning sensation, so it is advisable to use them only in special cases.
There are special pencils for emphasizing the lower eyelid. They are called kayals. Their main advantage is softness and hypoallergenicity. As a rule, they have a light shade.
