does anyone have tips on how to shape flicks on the outer eye with a kohl pencil. i can't use liquid liner as i always make a fat mess, but the kohl seems to melt off too fast. it's also difficult to get it even and matching.any advice?

I never use liquid either, I do not have steady enough hands. as for the flicks I just gently pull on the outside of my eye and follow the crease, if that is where you want it. then I just touch it up with a dry q-tip to make the line neater. Twist the top of the q-tip tightly first to make it easier. If i'm going to be outside in humidity or need it to hold a long time, I very lightly dust transluscent powder over the liner. This seems to help SET the liner. Then very lightly go over the liner with another coat and it will last hours.

liquid liner is a dream if you apply it properly. never do one long swoop, that always messes me up. very small strokes, when done right, give the illusion of one long line and has wonderful accuracy.

What's a good brand of liquid liner? I tried Maybelline once and I didn't really like it. I've just stuck to pencil liner since then.

there's a new creme liner from Mac called Fluidliner and works amazing...you can use that with mac's liner brush in 209 but best is 210. 210 is only sold at the mac stores though.
