Try~It Tuesday ~ Eyeliner Stencils

Hey hey hey, y’all! Hope everyone is having a fine Tuesday! I’m undecided about mine haha I went to bed this morning at 4:30 and woke up around 11:30 and that just totally messed my day up. I have no idea why I couldn’t go to sleep last night, but I just couldn’t. That’s not true, I do know why I couldn’t sleep. My dog, Pippin, who is as close to a soul mate to me that an animal can be, was acting very bizarre last night. All of the sudden, he just started crying, either when walking or standing. He couldn’t jump up onto my bed, and when he was lying down, he had his head in my closet, or he would wedge himself under my bed. And when I say crying, I mean it sounded like someone was trying to murder him. I ran my hands along his body, to see if I got a reaction from him and there was nothing. I couldn’t feel anything that seemed out of sorts. There was nothing I could do except see how he was in the morning and then call the vet. Whatever was bothering him seems to have completely vanished, because he’s perfectly fine this morning, able to jump on my bed and chase squirrels at full speed. I was wondering if he wasn’t playing around, to be honest. I had an episode last night with my foot joints. I was in excruciating pain and my hubby had to actually help me back into the house, because I couldn’t put any pressure on my foot at all. About half way to the couch is when Pippin started crying. We thought he was being empathetic with me and my pain, but then he got so bad with it last night, I was sure he was legitimately injured. Then this morning, he was miraculously healed. I’m back to thinking it was empathy haha

Needless to say, I am bone tired, so I thought I would test out an easy product today. I ordered these stencils from Wish, and anyone in the States knows that ordering from there is really gambling haha Most of the products come from China, which isn’t necessarily a bad thing, but you may not get what you ordered. It’s just the nature of Wish hahaha Now, I have the worst luck when it comes to applying winged liner. It’s almost like my hands forget how to function. It’s truly sad haha When I saw these stencils I just knew my winged liner prayers had been answered!! Well, be careful what you wish for y’all haha

There are no instructions. I understand that stencils are a bit self-explanatory, but they don’t even indicate which stencil will give you a classic look, thin, cat or extravagant. The double eyeliner and fishtail are pretty easy to pick out, but the others? Ha! Just gonna have to wing it … hehe get it … wing it?

You don’t have to look hard to see the skepticism on my face. These are quite sticky, which is good, as far as getting good lines. There is no way you could put these on once you have eyeshadow on, though, and applying eyeshadow after liner is just crazy. These will, undoubtedly, pull off your eyeshadow. I also wonder if they would even stick like you’d need them to, if you’ve done your shadow first. Also, if you have done your face makeup, there’s a good chance of messing that up, depending on how far out you go with the stencil.

However, if you just want to wear eyeliner, these might not be a bad product.

These photos are before I went in to “clean up” the lines. I’m still pretty skeptical, at this point.

Okay, okay, it’s still doesn’t look great. And the time it takes to put the stencil on, readjust and readjust again … it just doesn’t seem worth it to me. This package was only a $1, or it may have even been free with $1 shipping. I still don’t think the stencils are worth it, unless you absolutely cannot do any sort of upper eyeliner at all. By the time you are ready to apply the liner on one eye, you could have had both eyes done and been heading out the door. I’m certain there’s a learning curve to using these, and if you wanted to do a fancy look, like double liner, or the fishtail liner, these might have a place in your makeup bag. Might. I’m sure there is someone out there who could find these stencils useful. It’s just not me.

Have y’all tried any products to help up your makeup game? Eyeliner stencils? Haha lemme know!
