One thing Kaye did ask me was "What’s the difference between an eyeliner that goes inside your waterline and an eyeliner that goes above your top lashes on the skin (cat flick)"? This is actually a really good question and got me thinking that I should point it out for you here too.
An eyeliner that goes INSIDE your waterline is called a KHOL or KAJAL. It has a softer nib and is made differently from an eyeliner. The softness means that it won’t scratch the delicate area of your eye, it will glide on quickly - nobody wants to take their time doing this bit - and Khols/Kajals come out very black - perfect for a Smokey/Rock chick/sexy eye!
A few favourite examples at really reasonable prices are:
An eyeliner that creates a cat flick goes ON the skin ABOVE your top lashes meaning that it can either be in the form of a liquid liner (like a felt tip) or a pencil type liner. This type of eyeliner is not as soft as a khol because the majority of people using this type of liner want to create a neat, smart line close to the lash line, which extends just beyond, for that sexy eyeliner look.
If the pencil is as soft as a khol it will create a smokey look and will need blending, which is great if you’re want that look, but for a line that doesn’t budge, looks neat and enhances your natural lash line, then it should be a pencil that needs slightly more pressure then a khol would.
Once again, a few reasonably priced favourites are:
I admit I can see how Kaye finds this confusing, but when you try both out you will see the difference in the texture and understand what I am talking about I promise!
