Hi Bobbi!

When lining your eyes, should you ever line the inner rim? When should you line the entire eye versus just a top or bottom liner?

Thanks!

Danielle

Dear Danielle,

When you are lining the inner rim, it can end up making the eye look smaller. Although, I sometimes add an inner liner to a smoky eye, for a more intense effect. For everyday, line just the top lid to make your eyes stand out more.

Dear Bobbi,

I have very dark skin, what color eyeliner should I be using? I feel like black liner doesn’t really show up, should I try another color?

Sincerely,

Angela

Dear Angela,

A very dark brown shade, such as a rich espresso is really beautiful on all skin types.

Dear Bobbi,

What type of eyeliner do you recommend for a cat eye? I want something really precise that is easy to use!

Best,

Ellie

Dear Ellie,

Both a gel and a long wear pencil will work for this. You’ll be the most precise with a gel, especially if you are using a precision eyeliner brush.
