Question por tu: Do girls with thicker, fuller lashes have more fun?
A flirty fringe comes in handy when you’re batting eyelashes with a stranger across the room, or in my case with the old dude working behind the counter at the See’s (hook me up with another chocolate sample, holmes!). 🙂
My wimp-tacular eyelashes and I rely on MAC’s Technakohl Liners ($14.50, available in 11 colors), magical, twist-up mechanical makeup pencils that tightline like WHOA!
Yo, what’s tightlining?
Also referred to as “backing the lashes,” it’s a technique where you line the top lashes going between the base of each lash’s root for really thick, rich lashes.
I’ve done it using a regular old kohl pencil and MAC Fluidline, but my two favorite Techs in Graphblack and Brownborder are sooo much faster and easier to use, I guess because of their fine pencil tip. The thin, small point fits easily between the roots to really “get up in there.” 🙂

More reasons to love MAC Technakohl
- Staying power: The Technakhols work kinda like Urban Decay’s 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencils in that they apply creamy but dry within a minute or so. They’re smudge-proof and last all day, even along the waterline.
- Soft finish: Although I’ll also tightline with MAC Fluidline in Blacktrack, I prefer the Technakhols, especially when I want a more natural look. I think the finish looks softer and less stark.
- Skip the sharpener: The thin pencil tip never needs sharpening, either. Can I get an AMEN from the other lazies in the house? LOL!
Have you spent any time with the MAC Technakohls?
