How to: Apply Eyeliner

Eyeliner can be really tricky to apply and most of us struggle with the technique. Today we’re going to show you how to put on eyeliner like a pro!


1
 
POWDER

First powder your eyelid. This will create a dry base to ensure your eyeliner stays put all day. Avoid applying mascara or curling your eyelashes, as this will make it harder to draw close to the lash line.




2
 
DRAW SMALL LINES

For an even application, start by marking small dashes along your upper lash line. Begin at the centre and work your way to the outer corners.






3 
DRAW A LONG LINE

Now you’re going to connect the dots! Return to the first dash and slowly draw a fluid line to the outer edge.






4 
CONNECT THE LINES

Look up and to the corner of your eyes. Starting from the inner corner of your eye, draw a line that connects to the centre.





5 
THE FINISHING TOUCH

To add a feline flick, look straight into your mirror and measure where your lower lash line meets the upper lashes – add an upward flick. Now, you can gently curl your eyelashes, adding mascara.

And there you have it – the perfectly applied eyeliner!
