How to Apply Eyeliner 101

Hey everyone!

This post is going to be about how to apply basic eyeliner, I’m going to try and keep it as easy as possible, with some easy step by step tips.

v  First I like to tilt my chin slightly up facing a mirror, at this point you should be able to see down your nose; this will make it easier for you to see your whole eyelid for applying eyeliner.
v  Then I like to gently hold my eyelid upward at an angle. I almost always start at my inner corner making small  connected lines across my lid placing the liner as close to the lashline as possible, so that you won’t have any skin between the liner and lashes.
v  If you’re using a pencil liner and it’s freshly sharpen, roll the tip between your fingers to soften the tip so you won’t have a hard line (unless that’s what you’re aiming for, go for it)
v  If your using liquid liner, apply it using small feathering strokes, start at the inner corner once again and working your way out
v  If you find the line is still too hard for you or if you just want the liner to last longer apply a similar colored eyeshadow over the liner to soften the look.

Ø  Note: this method can be used for any type of eyeliner, and with it being so many colors out there, you can really go crazy with just some eyeliner.

Hopefully these tips help you some, let me know by commenting or email me!
