Smoking hot: How to do heatproof liner without losing your cool

Bobbi Brown Long Wear Waterproof Liner LR

There has been a lot of talk in the beauty world recently of make-up that is workout proof, enabling you to look good in those all-important gym selfies. If that’s your thing. Of course, when it comes to travelling, make-up that can stand up to sweat and humidity is also going to be great for tropical climes.

Hot, humid conditions and perfectly applied eyeliner don’t usually go together but Bobbi Brown Cosmetics is challenging this idea with the launch of Long-Wear Waterproof Liner.

So if you’re heading to the sunshine, or already get to live in it, and don’t want to compromise your signature smokey eye, this liner could be for you. The secret is that it contains minimal oils and is therefore less likely to slip and smudge. Having been tested in “the most humid, demanding climates”, maximum staying power is what it promises, along with crisp, strong colour. Eight strong colours to be exact, from Deep Sea and Rich Plum to the classic Blackout.

The highly-pigmented formulation includes waxes so that when you apply the liner it ensures a smooth, even stroke, delivering uniform colour along the lash line. It is also designed to last all-day long whilst being gentle enough to use on the inner lash line.

How to apply:
Positioning the liner as close to the lash line as possible, apply along the length of the lid. Build up and shape as desired.

The twist-up design eliminates the need to carry a sharpener and also helps those less than confident at applying eye liner (me) by allowing for ultra-precise application. Two more reasons to ensure that this liner has earned a place in my make-up bag.
