Open Your Eyes

It's instinctual to close your eye while applying eye shadow and eyeliner to the lid. But when you close your eyes, you lose the ability to draw a straight line.

Apply Eyeshadow Primer As A First Step

How can you get the best results, if your first step is wrong? Using an eyeshadow primer before applying liquid eyeliner can stop the inky colour from transferring all over your lids. Also, it will help liner to dry a little faster than on a naked eyelid, which can often be naturally greasy. 

Don’t Hold Your Liner Brush Straight

Before you begin with the process, shake up your eyeliner tube well to make the liquid smooth. Now, if you want to have a smooth liner, hold your brush flat, not straight. Holding brush straight makes your liner look messy.

Start In The Middle

If you are a newbie, you may probably think that applying eyeliner is same as kajal, wherein you start from the inner corner to outer corners. But hate to break it to you folks, it is not the case. 

Get as close to the lash line as possible and start in the middle while you drag to the outer corners. Use the leftover product to line the inner corners.

Create Wings

Add Some Lashes
