Recently, I was at an event where Make Up Forever's makeup artist and national educator, Jessie Powers, shared four easy tips on how to apply eyeliner. I had never heard these tricks before, so I wanted to share them with all of you!
The Best Way to Apply Eyeliner
1. Draw a thin line of liner centered on the upper lash line directly above the pupil.
2. To create the liner “tail”, choose the end point of your tail slightly above and outside the natural lash line. Then, with your eyes open and focused forward, draw a line from the tail’s end point down toward the outer corner of the lash line. [You can adjust the length of "tail", depending on how dramatic or subtle you want your look to be.]
3. Next, with the eyes open and focused forward, draw a line from the end of the tail connecting it to the liner on the center of the upper lash line. Continue these strokes until the tail is completely filled in.
4. Finally, draw a line from the inner corner of the upper lash line to the middle of the upper lash line, connecting the two sections.
