Most makeup artists consider the liquid eyeliner as a timeless tool for beauty. In buying liquid eyeliners, girls are advised to choose a brand, which promises immunity against chips and smears. Those characteristics are lifesavers against common enemies such as sweating, crying or swimming. The basic application of the liquid is to start at the upper lash line in thin strokes. The strokes must come from the inner to the outer corners of the eye. The resulting line is usually flawless. The basic eyeliner color is of course black. However, as time changed so does the products hues. Many women now have the option to choose from the more conservative brown up to the daring pink or red. Many celebrities such as Zooey Deschanel were seen wearing colors that are more provocative. In Descahnel’s case, the color was a “hot pink” during the She and Him’s campaign for the music video, entitled as “Don’t Look Back”. She did pull it off, but others may not have the face and the confidence to wear this blaring color. 

Most people may already know that the usage of this product dates back from ancient Egypt and Mesopotamia. Formerly, the trend was to put a dark black line around the eyes. Researchers consider that eyeliners back then were used as protection against evil spirits. However, this was changed in the 1920’s after the Western world adapted the use of cosmetics. Women back then became more liberal and there were a lot of changes in the fashion industry. The evolution of the eyeliner continues up to this day wherein it was used by both men and women. Eyeliners became more prominent as it was associated with the Gothic and Punk fashion.
