How To Apply Eyeliner

Apply Eyeliner Like A Professional

Many people think they already know how to apply eyeliner, and by all rights, they do a good job. In actuality, there is a big difference between the way you might apply eyeliner and the way a professional makeup artist does. Use these easy-to-follow steps and you can apply eyeliner like a professional makeup artist:

Select your Eyeliner

Eyeliner must be applied near the base of your eyelashes. As there are varying products in the market such as cake eyeliner, liquid liner and pencil eyeliner, it is important to try each type so that you will know which type will best accentuate your own natural beauty. Also, to whatever type you prefer, practice the application so you can achieve a very fine line. When you apply eyeliner in a very thick line it can look harsh giving your eyes a tired and heavy impression. Always bear in mind that a thin line is recommended – should you have any trouble applying it, a brush is helpful to smooth out the line and to blend it well.

Liquid Eyeliner

Liquid eyeliners are recommended to be used and should only be used above the top of the eyelashes, whereas an eye shadow or an eye lining pencil is suggested to be used under the eyes lower lashes. This kind comes usually in a bottle with an application brush, almost similar to an ink. This requires great precision during application, but can be perfected through constant practice. A note to remember is to always let the liquid dry before you open your eyes after application – if not, the liquid may smear the top of your eyes and give you a raccoon look.

Eye Liner Pencil

The easiest to use and works just like colored pencils. As the tip of this liner is dry, it has a tendency of pulling your eyelids fragile tissues; stretching the eyelids when lining it could help a lot in achieving a smooth application. A note to remember, you should always sharpen the pencil before every application to eliminate any bacteria that has accumulated at the tip.

Pencil liners may be used on both above the top lashes as well as under the lower lashes. Liquid eye liners however, must only be applied on the top lid. Cake eyeliners are applied with water and may be put on to both the top and so too the bottom of the lid.
