When you are first learning how to apply eyeliner, it can be one of the
trickiest tasks to master. But when it is applied properly, the overall effects
can be absolutely amazing. Skillful application of different eyeliner can help
make your eyes look more evenly spaced, thus giving a better balance to your
entire face, and this is only one of the benefits. The following tips will cover
several aspects of eyeliner, including how to chose the right eyeliner for your
eyes, and how to properly apply it to your eyes.

already know the effects you hope to accomplish by wearing it. In addition to
helping balance the face, eyeliner is also meant to give lashes more depth, and

the lower lids of the eyes. Eyeliner in liquid form is most effective when only
used on the top lids of your eyes.

Pencil form eyeliner is more popular, in part because it is easier to use.
Liquid eyeliner requires practice in order to apply it correctly.
How to Apply Eyeliner - the Basics
To apply eyeliner correctly, you need to maker sure you have applied all
other make-up first. If you apply your other make up on top of the eyeliner, it
not only takes away from the effects, but during the application process, your
eyeliner could get smudged or smeared.
Once you have all your other make-up on, make sure you have a good mirror
and appropriate lighting, then begin. In one smooth motion, draw a thin line
from one side of your eyelid to the other, remaining as close as you can to your
eyelash line. How thick you chose to make that line will have a bearing on your
