Estée Lauder Double Wear Zero Smudge Liquid Eyeliner
The Eyeliner Struggle (and a Solution)
Eyeliner can be tricky business. You want it to go on smoothly, with the ability to apply it as fine or thick as you like. And as much as you want a defined application with the control to customize your look, it isn’t enough to just put it on—you want it to stay there all day, without ending up with smudges under your eyes. We’ve all lived that situation—you’re at an office party, a dinner date at an upscale restaurant, or any other gathering, and you catch your face in the mirror and see the dreaded raccoon eyes. Just that morning, everything was in place, but a few hours of daily activities has left you smudged, and you have to go back and rework your look all over again. You want a great look, but you don’t want to have to continually work to maintain it; instead, you want the same look to last—you shouldn’t have to sacrifice your style for long-lasting results, or vice versa.
Estée Lauder Double Wear Zero Smudge Liquid Eyeliner provides you with the ultra-defined look you’re after. It applies smoothly and lasts for up to 15 hours of wear, meaning you’ll look great all day long—for work, for dinner, for a night on the town – this liner ensures that you can live your busy life and focus on what’s important without having to pull out the compact or find the nearest mirror to remove those unsightly smudges from under your eyes and reapply a fresh layer of liner.
About Liquid Eyeliner
What exactly is a liquid liner, and why is it an effective choice? A liquid liner, generally speaking, either comes in a tube with its own brush or wand, or it comes as a pen, where the liquid is released through a felt tip. In the case of Estée Lauder Double Wear Zero Smudge, it is the latter. The pen provides you with control and precision, and the felt tip is super fine, so you’ll get a clean application with a steady, lustrous dark line. And because it’s made of a waterproof formula, you can be confident that your look will last you all day, even if the weather throws you a few surprises, without smudging or running.
Not sure how to go about applying a liquid liner? If you’re unfamiliar with liquid liner, you might be intimidated to give it a try. Like all makeup, it may take a little practice to find your own unique method that works just right for your eye shape, but there are a few general steps we can all take to get a great, clean look from a liquid liner:
- First, be sure you’ve already applied all eyeshadow; you’ll want this already in place so that you can glide the liner over it, and you won’t have to worry about covering your liner with any stray powder from your shadow.
- Rest your elbow on a table, with a mirror as close to your face as possible to give you a clear view of your work. Resting your elbow will help steady any shaky arm or hand to reduce risk of error.
- Begin by applying the liquid liner in dots or small, even dashes along your eyelid. This will give the better control over the shape and help give you an even result. Make sure the dots or dashes are evenly spaced and are also located at equal distances above your upper lid (or below, if using on lower lid).
- Slowly connect the dots or dashes with small strokes. It’s generally better to not try to connect them with one long line, or with several on the longer side; instead, using short strokes gives you even more control and allows you to pause so you can better see the shape. (Note: This step has the added bonus of satisfying our inner, connect-the-dots-loving child selves.)
You’ll want to make sure the liquid is dry before applying your mascara; however, this liquid liner also dries quickly (within a few seconds, generally), so you won’t have to spend much time waiting for it to form a solid, defined line. At the end of the day, just remove with your choice of oil based eye makeup remover.
About Estée Lauder Double Wear Zero Smudge Liquid Eyeliner
Estée Lauder Double Wear Zero Smudge Liquid Eyeliner takes into account the fact that not all eyes are the same. They provide you with two shades for brilliant, radiant eyes with this liner: black, for a dark, intense look, and brown, for a softer yet still lustrous appeal. You may choose one over the other based on skin tone or hair color, or you may want to pick one of each, so you can vary your look depending on your outfit for the day. With both shades, you’ll get the same precision and control, as they both possess the thin but smooth, gliding felt tip. This comes along with the same 15 hour, waterproof results and ultra definition eye lining for both options.
Your eyes deserve special treatment. You shouldn’t have to irritate them by going over them several times a day to reapply your eyeliner, removing the old and smudged before putting on the fresh coat. This not only is harsh on your eyes, but it also wastes both time and money—you should need exactly one, and only one, application of eyeliner per day, so why settle for a brand or option that forces you to go back over it multiple times a day? With long-lasting Estée Lauder Double Wear Zero Smudge Liquid Eyeliner, you’ll get that strong, deep definition you adore, with the control and precision you desire and the convenience of a long-lasting, waterproof wear, getting you through whatever your day may send your way.
