My Secret To Carbon Black Eyeliner & Kohl

I love my eyeliner and kohl to be the blackest black. I think it's the Arab in me. I hate eyeliners that are not pigmented enough to give that matte carbon black liner look. I started doing this trick that made my liner and kohl appear matte and really really black.

Apply your eyeliner as usual, layer it if needed. After the liner has dried, apply any matte black eyeshadow with an angled brush on top of it. Just layer the liner with the black eyeshadow. This will give you bold black matte eyeliner and your eyeliner will stay on longer without smudging. 

I love doing this. I've tried alot of eyeliners and gel liners from Rimmel, Maybelline, Bourjois but they always smudged or weren't black enough for me.

I've been using the Elizabeth Helen eyeliner for years. I always keep going back to it. I mentioned it on my  Facebook page recently. I really really love it. It's long lasting, doesn't dry up in the tube. 

I'm also loving Rimmel Scandal Eyes Kohl Kajal in 001 Black. It's very black, slides on easily and it is waterproof. I use it for my waterline.
Lastly, I used black eyeshadow from NYX and angled brush from Essence.
