How To Apply Eyeliner

By  | 

We first started by learning how to apply eye makeup for everyday perfection. Today let’s look at something for a more sexy and glamorous look. That something would be eyeliner and tips and tricks for getting it on right.

First eyeliner is all about practice; no one gets it perfects the first few times and in truth there will be days when the liner just won’t cooperate no matter how practiced you are. That’s ok, don’t give up. The next step is deciding which type will work for you. There are gels, pens, pencils and liquids. You may have to try several types to find your favorite.

Each type will have it’s own benefits. Gels are perfect for smudging; liquids create a smooth fine line, pens a simple line and pencils give a thicker line.

Now before applying eyeliner should put on your base. That includes primer, foundation, and eye shadow. Now pull the lid smoothly and tight with your non-dominate hand and with the dominant hand draw a line from the inside of the eye straight to the end of the eye where the lid meets the eyelash. This is the part that takes practice. One trick that’s used by many women is to make small dots instead of a solid line and then join them together to create a line. Remember the old saying: Practice makes perfect.
