What you need to prepare is a makeup brush cleaner, generally speaking, well-known beauty brands will launch makeup brush cleaners with eye makeup products at the same time. The method is to drop the cleaner on a makeup sponge and brush the brush back and forth repeatedly until the color is not brushed.

The method is the same. But considering that most people will not buy quality makeup brushes but ordinary brushes, so they will not spend money to buy cleaning agents, then provide an alternative to cleaning agents, people who draw eye makeup should have. That is eye makeup remover oil/liquid. Follow the steps above to clean, and finally rinse well with water.

Just use this eyeliner brush a little, set the angle after, and the front of the eyeliner connected up. This brush is particularly stable, so it is also very suitable for beginners to use. And you don’t have to wash it after each use, because it is the same shape after the next day, so you can draw eyeliner, as usual, it is suitable for lazy people. But the downside is that the lines that come out are not too fine.
Brush eyeliner brush
This eyeliner brush is suitable for dabbing eyeliner liquid. However the makeup hand has to be very steady, otherwise, the lines will not come out smoothly. No matter what kind of eyeliner brush, after you dip the eyeliner product, you must smooth it in your hand before putting it on your eyes, otherwise some clumps will make the eyeliner smudge.
