Dr. Hauschka Eyeliner Liquid is available in black and brown on the Abloomnova online store and part of the Dr Hauschka cosmetics line.
Eye liner was first used in Ancient Egypt and Mesopotamia as a dark black line around the eyes. As early as 10,000 BC, Egyptians and Mo wore various cosmetics including eye liner not only for aesthetics but to protect the skin from the desert sun. Research has also speculated that eye liner was worn to protect the wearer from the evil eye. The characteristic of having heavily lined eyes has been frequently depicted in ancient Egyptian art. They produced eye liner with a variety of materials, including copper ore and antimony. Ancient Egyptian kohl contained galena, which was imported from nearby regions in the Land of Punt, Coptos and Western Asia.
In the 1920s, Tutankhamun’s tomb was discovered, introducing the use of eye liner to the Western world. The 1920s were an era commonly associated with many changes in women’s fashion, and women felt freer to apply make-up more liberally.
In the 1960s, liquid eye liner was used to create thick black and white lines around the eyes in the make-up fashion associated with designers like Mary Quant.
Dr. Hauschka Eyeliner Liquid is the perfect tool for perfecting the eye flick. The fine brush on the Liquid Eyeliner, available in black and brown, allows for the easy application of a precise and vivid line that is long-lasting and moisturising to the skin. Eyebright, black tea and neem soothe the delicate skin around the eyes, while rose wax and jojoba oil protect the skin, keeping it silky smooth.
Draw a fine line as close to the lash line as possible. Hold applicator near tip for more control. Place the brush at the centre of the eyelid and draw a line outwards. Then complete the line from the inner angle of the eye to the centre. Allow to dry.
Eye make-up can be gently removed using the moisturising, creamy Cleansing Milk. Simply pump a little Cleansing Milk onto a moist cotton wool pad and gently wipe away the eye make-up using a sweeping outward motion.
Eyebright is soothing to the sensitive eye area. Neem extract fortifies and conditions lashes. Luxurious jojoba and rose waxes protect and shine.
