How do you put on eyeliner? 15 points!!!?

Asked by: Constance 627 views Makeup ,

For beginners. I have tried liquid eyeliner and it always turns out messy and think. I want it thin. I have tried pencil eyeliner too and it still doesn’t work, by the way I’m a 15 year old girl. I have watch makeup videos on how to put it on, and it still turns out bad. By the way I learn visually. Thanks!! 10 points!!!

    I don’t use actual eyeliner, but merely black or dark brown eyeshadow.I apply it to my bottom eyelid with a brush specifically for applying eyeliner from the middle out towards my ear.I don’t apply it all the way across my bottom lid because I heard of this one tip (can’t remember if it was on the Tyra show, but it probably was) that if you have small eyes, like I do, to apply eyeliner to half of your lid. Either top or bottom.And it’s true. But if you have big eyes, then apply it all the way across.I never apply inside, but close.Maybe you should try a brush; the pencil can make squiggly lines or uneven ones.

    Personally, I don’t like liquid eyeliner either. I prefer to use the pencil roll-up kind. Anyway, to put on eyeliner you have to apply it to your waterline, to get to your waterline on your top lid you have to lift up your eyelid and apply it under the eyelashes, on your waterline, like this: http://jaqsmakeuploft.files.wordpress.co… the waterline is where your eyelashes grow, if that helps to create a visual too. The waterline on the bottom lid is this: http://pad2.whstatic.com/images/thumb/e/…And there you go! :)

    You need to just play around with it. i use liquid now that i have perfected the pencil, but it’s tricky to get down. use the pencil eyeliner for the water line of your eyes, but keep the water line very light and towards the corner of your eye get darker so you’re eyes don’t looks small!

    Been there :( Before I figured out the wonders of gel, I just used a pencil, got as messy as it took and then cleaned it up with a little lotion and some q-tips afterward.You could try that.

    Gel liner is the best. Ever since I was 13 I’ve been wearing eyeliner and gel liner is by far the easiest. You just need an angled brush and apply it in small strokes.
