Applying Eyeliner - Tips on How to Apply Eyeliner

The correct way to use an eye liner is outside the eye, just along the lash line with absolutely no gap . To apply the liner, always start from the middle of the eye to the outer corner and then starting at the inner corner; draw a line to join the line in the middle. Eye liner applied this way will come out neatly and will stay dark and true for longer.

Applying Eyeliner

  • When using an eye pencil, open your mouth slightly to relax the eye muscles. It will make lining a lot easier without having to pull or tug at your lid.

  • Apply eyeliner as close as possible and even into the lashes to avoid the white line you sometimes get when liner and lashes don't connect.

  • DO NOT put on mounds of eyeliner because you will look like a raccoon about three hours later.

How to Apply Eyeliner

Step 1: Draw a thin line, try to draw as close to the base of your eyelids as possible. Start from the inside corner of your eye and work your way out. If you are not expert in drawing one long line all at once, do it in short strokes.

Step 2: When you have finished lining, lightly smudge (blend) the line you just drew. It will make the line smooth so that it doesn't look like a distinct line.

Step 3: Experiment with lining the bottom of your eyes the same way for a more dramatic look. When lining your bottom lids, go in the opposite direction: start from the outside corner and work your way in.


Close-Set Eyes: Line outer third of upper lids with gray,brown, or black liner. Smudge gently. Use a lighter liner on the inner eye to widen the space between eyes.

Small Eyes: Draw a dark line gradually thickening at outer edge of the eye. Use a light-colored pencil (gold, silver, white) and draw under lower lash.

Deep-Set Eyes: Line upper lash line with pale, shimmery liner. Then line outer edge of lower lash with a soft, neutral shade (gray or taupe). This will create the illusion of a less heavy lid.

Drooping Eyes: Line outer third of eye very close to lashes, carefully sweeping the liner up at the corner of the eye
