How to Make Cream Eyeliner

Making Cream Eyeliner with Kahina Lip and Face Balm

In January we debuted Kahina Lip & Face Balm and introduced you to many ways to use it. Here’s another: making a creamy eyeliner. Here we use it to make a soft metallic cat eye.

Effect: glossier, more reflective eyeliner that’s easy to manipulate as you apply (and doesn’t get everywhere like a loose powder might); a little more “diffused” as the balm softens and decreases pigmentation
Difficulty level: medium

What you’ll need:
Loose powder eyeliner (we’re using Alima Pure) or shadow
Kahina Lip & Face Balm
Eyeliner brush
Sample jar (optional)

How it’s done:
Remove a small amount of Lip & Face Balm (using a clean utensil like a spatula) and place it either in a sample jar (great so you can store extras) or the back of your hand. Lift a small amount of loose eyeliner powder into jar or onto back of hand, to the side of the Lip & Face Balm. Using a clean eyeliner brush, work the two into each other, being careful not to put too much powder into the mix. The consistency should be like a gel or cream. This part’s fun – it should feel like you’re painting! Once you have the desired consistency and pigmentation, apply onto eye in whatever shape you’d like. If you used a sample jar to do the mixing, just put the top on and store for use next time, being sure to use a clean brush every time.
