So I was using Darling Girl's glitter glue to bring out the dimensions in a Müse duochrome eyeshadow.
|This is just one colour!|
As you can see, the results are awesome! Then I put on my liner (Clio liquid liner in Kill Blood) and this is what happened:
|Gaping hole right there.|
I asked about this on /r/indiemakeupandmore, and /u/misosoup122 may have found the answer. It may be the liner brush being too stiff and wiping off the glitter glue. I currently only use 2 liners, elf liner sealer & Clio liquid liners, and both have stiff brushes. The elf liner has a really stiff, cheap brush (feels like a felt marker tip) and the Clio liners have a very flexible but stiff (perfect for supersharp lines) brush.
So this was my solution: I created my own "liquid liner" so I can use a different brush.
This is what I used:
- a very, very small drop of Jojoba oil (apparently jojoba is great for sebum control, so it's perfect for my oily lids)
- a small scoop of any loose powder eyeshadow
So I mixed the oil & the eyeshadow together. Make sure it's not too watery, you want a wet paint-like consistency.
|This is still too watery, so I added more eyeshadow in. I mixed dark brown & red.|
And this works!
|I wanted the duochrome eyeshadow to look more like an eyeliner, so I erased the edges to get them crisp.|
|I'm actually wearing mascara on my top lashes.|
|See? That's how much of my eyelash my eye eats up.|
|Another pic to show the shift. I'm only using one eyeshadow colour and the "liner"!|
