On the waterline I used a pencil and on the top I used gel. I prefer gel to liquid because it glides on smoother and dries quicker thus is easier to use and less messy. That's only because I'm hopeless when it comes to liquid liner though, if you can use it then stick with that.
So awesome! I am trying other things, I haven't broken out the gel yet but I found that if you use a pencil to draw the outline out, then go over it with another kind of liner it makes a really awesome bold clean look!
Sigma and MAC are my favourite brands and I kind of religiously use them, it makes it so much more difficult with crappy brushes. I also use nail art brushes instead of small pencil brushes because they're cheaper and a lot thinner.
The red I used was one I found in the pound shop and I haven't seen anything similar, sorry Makeup Geek Razzleberry is a nice red, it's brighter than what I used in this but I think it would still work, maybe even try it on top of a black base to darken it some
This is a really eye catching look. I'm so frightened to use red sometimes 'cause it can look like I've been crying, but looking at this tutorial I sorta wanna try it out and have a go myself It was really informative and esy to follow. Although the font was readable, I felt that it took away from the images of the tutorial and the information. It wasn't something that annoyed me, but I thought could help you when making future tutorials xx
