I was wondering for those of you that use Mac Fluidline eyeliner, what brush do you use to line the lower inner rim of your eye?

I'm currently using a damp lip brush (b/c it's the smallest brush i have) & while it works, I would prefer a brush with smaller/finer bristles for a more precise application. I also have tried using one of my stiff straight eyeliner brushes & found it too difficult to work with.

Thanks.

Try MAC's angled brush (#266), or their eyeliner brush (#209). Personally, I like 209 better because its synthetic fibre: Fluidline and other liquid eyeliners wash off really well and don't get stuck on the bristles (unlike the real hair, IMO).

But now I'm at NYU so I don't have a lot of time to work even part time anymore

Yea!! I am glad to have you on this site. I only met MAC when I joined MuT and I fell in love quickly and now it consumes my train cases.

i like my 208 angled brow brush. it's thinner than the 266, so you get a smaller line.

I actually use the one that came with the Benefit Shelaq set.



I use the one second from the right. I really like it.

Trisha I use Stila's #4 but with Smudgepots and I can't do a good line on my lower lashes!
I have problem because I have small eyes and I have to draw a very very very thin tiny line otherwise my eyes look smaller!!!

With smudgepots I use the #4 to do my upper lashes, then I use a push brush like#13 to do my lower lashes. I get a much finer line with #13 on my lower lashes than I can with the #4. I always dab some of the colour off on the back of my hand first.

i tried using cheap liner brushes for the Fluidlines but they were too flimsy for me. i like a firmer bristle for them personally but the 266 brush is too thick of a line so then i got the 311 and the 209 and i love them
