How to apply eye liner? - Eye Makeup

First apply eye shadow, then move on to apply eye liner.

Position your lining device. Hold the lining device as you do a pen or pencil. Turn your hand so the applicator tip is parallel to your eyelid.

If you are in the beginning stages of makeup application, do not use liquid eyeliner.....It can get you real upset.....It's kinda tricky....try it later on after you get the hang of things a little. Instead start with an eyeliner pencil.

Step-1. Using an eyeliner pencil, run the pencil above the upper eyelid lashes right close to the lash line. At first it is best to only line directly above where the lashes are growing, do not extend your line too close to the inner corner of the eye, it might not look right. You can play with extending the liner line later when you feel a little more comfortable with eye makeup.

Step-2. When you have finished lining, lightly smudge the line you just drew. Mostly pencils have a foam rubber smudger on one end. Smudging softens some of the harshness the line may have, in other words, blend the line in a little so it dosen't look like a distinct line. A Q-tip works just as well.

Step-3. After you line and smudge, use a small pointy brush and run a coat of the dark eyeshadow over the eyeliner. Do this if the line looks like it stands out too much, it softens it and is a "must do" step for liquid liner.
