When it comes to makeup application, there’s nothing worse than screwing up your eyeliner. It’s arguably one of the most common beauty products we use, so application should be a pretty straightforward. The thing is, when eyeliner is done well, it can accentuate your eyes and create a fierce finished look.


Here’s how to apply eyeliner like an absolute pro:

Learn the Art

1.Make Sure Lids Are Taut

One of the biggest frustrations when applying liquid or gel eyeliner is dealing with a brush that skips. This happens if the canvas – AKA your upper eyelid – isn’t perfectly smooth. By holding the skin taut it makes the drag on the liner super easy.” Keeping your mirror low and looking down helps tremendously, as well.

 2. Try the Dot-to-Dot Method

Create a line of dots on the upper lash line that are close to each other and then connect them with a straight line to create the perfect liquid liner.”. 

3. The Tape Method Works Too

Liquid and gel cat eyes are notoriously difficult, but you can get them right. Even the most experienced of pros will apply a line of tape, then draw the flick. Once the tape is removed, you’re left with a super crisp line. 

4. Smoke It Out

This tip is for pencil liners. Sometimes a hard line against your lashes can be too rigid and stark. It can even make your eyes look smaller than they are. To combat this, carefully line your upper lash line and the outer corners of your lower lash line with your pencil. 

5. Dull Your Pencil

It seems counterintuitive, but you don’t want to use a super sharp point. Pencils tend to break off mid-application if they’re too sharp, so Vadhera says to “gently dull the point on the back of your hand.”

6.Practice Makes Perfect

This is the best part about makeup, right? Experimenting with new products, trying new tips and tricks, and practicing until you finally perfect the art. Just like anything, eyeliner application takes time and patience, but you’ll get the hang of it quicker than you think. Happy lining!
