It’s a good thing no one watches me put on my eyeliner or mascara everyday, I end up making the funniest faces. There’s something about putting on eye makeup that requires me to have my mouth agape. (Those silly faces actually do help. See our gallery of tips, How to Apply Makeup Well.)
Eyeliner (especially liquid) can be the trickiest to apply. But thankfully there’s an easy strategy to get your eyeliner straight. Start by dotting your eyeliner on in a sort of dashed line from the inner corner to the outer edge of your eye. Then use a light stroke to fill in the spaces between the dots. You should end right at the end of your lashes. For an even smoother look, use a thin, angled brush to apply an eyeshadow of the same color.
