PurIntensity Applying gel eyeliner is much like using a pencil. The difference is that the brush gives you more subtle control over the lines that you make. Additionally, different brushes will give you different effects. Pür Minerals Eyeliner Makeup Brush is a sharp, angled brush with a medium consistency that pairs well with Pür Intensity Gel Eyeliners.

To begin, dip the brush in the gel eyeliner, making sure to coat both sides of the bristles, and then dab the brush on your hand or a piece of tissue to form a point. Next, gently pulling the outer corner of your eye back, lightly dab or trace a line along the lash line, from the inner corner outward.

You can use this same technique to apply gel eyeliner to the bottom lash line as well. Here you should use a softer shade than on the top line to create a naturally brighter look. Once applied, refrain from blinking your eyes until the eyeliner has a chance to set.
