I have been using liquid eyeliner for ages and, although my technique has improved, it's a bit hit & miss. I have heard people talking about the credit card trick on here and wonder if somebody can talk us through it, please?

Thanks grin

Have you looked on YouTube?

If you mean using a credit card to do your wing you're better off using sellotape.

Press the sticky side on your hand first to make it less sticky and place at the corner in the wing shape. Draw wing. Remove tape.

Here's a video

I like the sellotape trick, I use the lash curler trick I found recently, thought it would go everywhere but its does work.

here it is

Oh, I can't see the sellotape one and I have lash extensions so can't use the other one. Hope they will be helpful for other people, but please can we have the credit card one!

You just use the straight edge of the card as your guide for your liner. It can look quite harsh and draggy if you don't know what you're doing though. Getting the angle right and not extending the wing too far are important.
