13 Genius Eyeliner Tricks Every Woman Needs to Know

And we're not just talking about mastering the cat eye.

1. Use a pencil liner as a guide for tricky liquid liners.

If your hand isn't steady enough for liquid eyeliner, line your eyes first with a pencil liner, and then trace over it with liquid.

2. Make a less pigmented eyeshadow more vibrant by covering your eyelid with a white eyeliner first.

This will help cancel out the color of your skin, creating an even base for the shadow and making the color pop.

3. Create your own custom eyeliner with a wet liner brush and eyeshadow.

The wet brush will darken the pigments a bit and create a sharp look like a liner.

4. Use white eyeliner as a brow highlighter for an instant eye lift.

Line below and above your eyebrows with a thick white liner, and smudge it out with a sponge brush to define your brows.

5. Make your own gel liner by warming the tip of a kohl liner with a lighter.

Hold the tip of the liner right above the flame for a few seconds, and then test the pencil on the back of your hand before lining your eyes.

6. If getting a perfect line is too challenging, draw a rough line first, and then sharpen it with a cotton swab and petroleum jelly.

Sometimes erasing mistakes is easier than trying to nail it the first time.

7. Simplify drawing a straight line by lining your eyes with dots first, and then connecting them.

Make sure your dots aren't too big. They should be the same size that you'd like the width of your line to be.

8. If your eyeliner is crumbly, freeze it for 10 minutes before lining your eyes.

To prevent eyeliner crumbles from messing up the rest of your makeup, freeze the liner to help it regain its shape.

9. Fix smudges with a skin-colored eyeliner.

If you've smudged your liner a bit too much, draw over it with a skin-colored liner instead of wiping it off and starting over. This is also a great trick if you want to make the line super-sharp.

10. Use the edge of a business card to get the perfect flick.

Try tracing the line if freehand drawing is too tricky.

11. Get the perfect smoky eye by drawing a hashtag on the outer corner of your eyelid and smudging it out with the sponge.

Keep drawing hashtags and smudging it out to get a darker, smokier look.

12. Use mascara as eyeliner with a liner brush.

If you don't have any eyeliner, use some of the product on the brush of a mascara wand to line your eye.

13. Use brown instead of black for a more universally flattering look.

An ashy brown liner works on all eye colors and shapes, and is less harsh than black.

Via.

The potential health benefits of drinking green tea are almost countless. "The antioxidant EGCG has been studied to treat various diseases and may help with brain function, fat loss, and lowering the risk of cancer," says Snyder. "Polyphenols are another antioxidant plentiful in green tea and can reduce the formation of free radicals in the body, protecting our cells from aging and other diseases." Keep your sipping to one or two cups a day as green tea is high in caffeine, which is best consumed in moderation, says Snyder. As for which to buy: "It's great to use organic loose leaf tea or tea bags that contain loose leaves, which are higher quality and are less processed," she says, as opposed to tea 'dust.'
