Julep Pencil Features
Extremely Simple Tightlining process
You may be confused about the term “tightlining”. Basically it is a technique to fill your lash line (also called waterline) directly ,filling the gaps between your lashes and lash line. It is a well-known eye makeup hack, instantly giving your eyes a natural no-makeup effect.
Your eyes will look bigger and your lash line will seem fuller. It is definitely a hack for everyone, no matter what age or eye shape! However, this may be difficult if you tend to blink a lot and smudge your eyeliner during application.
The Julep Gel Eye Glider simplifies the tiring tightlining technique for you! With a creamy waterproof formula, it glides on smoothly and easily without dragging or pulling your lash line. You don’t need to be a makeup pro to tightline or trying to make both sides symmetrical. Simply just use it to tightline your eyes, let it set for 30 seconds and you are good to go!
We all know that many cosmetics and beauty brands tend to use harmful chemicals and animal testing for their products. Hence, I really appreciate that Julep products are paraben free, sulfate free and cruelty free. The Julep Eye Glider slides onto your skin like butter, making it so easy to draw and tightline your eyes!
Super long lasting
As you head out for a long day, regardless of work or school, you definitely need a long lasting eyeliner that doesn’t smudge or fade or the hours tick by. The Julep Eye Glider is clinically proven to last for at least 10 hours!
Since it is tightlining eyeliner, it will definitely come into contact with the moisture of your eyes. But you will never have to worry if your eyeliner smudges and you can be confident and proud of your makeup. I also love Jane Iredale pencil for this.
Wide range of 24 shades
Most eyeliners out in the market only come in 2 or 3 shades, mainly black and brown. These colors may be too harsh for some people and they prefer more subtle colours. Julep has a really huge range of shades, from the shimmery bright colors to the matte dark ones. With so many choices, there is definitely a shade of everyone.
How to Tightline your eyes with Julep Eye Glider
What you will need:
1 Julep Eye Glider of your preferred shade, 1 eyeliner sharpener, 1 mirror, 1 Q tip soaked in makeup remover, 1 mascara (Optional), 1 eyelash curler (Optional)
Step 1: Sharpen your Julep Eye Glider
Using your eyeliner sharpener, create a nice rounded point for your Julep Eye Glider. Most sharpeners tend to sharpen the tips too much, causing it to snap easily or hurt your eyes. However, Julep does sell a eye glider sharpener, which works very well.
Step 2: Warm up your Julep Eye Glider
Draw a few strokes on the back of your non dominant hand first to make the formula even softer and easy to apply.
Step 3: Lift your eyelids
Use your non dominant hand to gently lift your eyelids so that you can see the base of your lash line.
Step 4: Start drawing
With a gliding motion, color in between your eyelashes, try to keep it as close to the lash line as you can.
Step 5 (Optional): Apply Mascara
To make your eyes look bigger, curl your eyelashes using an eyelash curler and apply mascara to the top and bottom lashes.
Step 6: Clean up the excess
Using the Q tip soaked in makeup remover, clean up any excess eyeliner or mascara to give your makeup a sleek and clean finish!
