Shwing, Schwing, Schwing, I just love saying the name for starters. We all do at MUA HQ. It has fast become our very favourite, go-to liquid eyeliner. The main reason for it’s love-at-first-use status is because it’s easy to use. You don’t often hear ‘easy’ in the same sentence as ‘liquid liner’ but this is about as easy as it gets. I won’t say fool-proof because there is no such thing when it comes to black liquid liner. It still takes care, precision, patience and a little practice but I reckon most people will draw a fairly decent line on their first go with this.
My tip for using this is to just stamp it against your skin rather than trying to drag it across the skin. Rest the length of the applicator tip on your lashes and against the skin at the same time to keep it steady. Re-dip the tip before doing your flicks at the edge. Take a moment to position it exactly where you want the extended line to be. Pause before you touch the skin, be sure that’s where you want it, and if you have enough product on the tip you should be able to just tip it against the skin and leave the flick in it’s place.
Sinead from The Beautiful Truth even named Schwing as her top eyeliner of the year for 2017.
