How to Apply Eyeliner
in 3 easy steps
Once you know how to apply eyeliner, it’s a really easy thing to do. I follow a simple 3 step process. My focus is getting my look done quickly, so I can go out there and enjoy myself. Using eyeliner really can set off a look and it’s just as fashionable today with Kate Middleton being a huge fan of the eyeliner.
1. Your eyeliner pencil should be sharpened – to give a thin but consistent line. Do a quick test on your hand first and this can also slightly blunten the point of a freshly sharpened pencil. Also, sharpening the eyeliner pencil will keep it more clean. (to reduce the risk of eye infections)
2. Use the hand you write with to hold the eyeliner (obviously) as this will give you greater control. Use the other hand to make the eyelid taut. A beauty insider tip is to slightly open your mouth, this relaxes your eye muscles and makes it easier to apply.
3. Don’t rush the job and try and do it all in one go. Take your time. Best still, if you are experimenting with a new look or colours, do this when you’ve got a spare half an hour – not when you’ve only got 10 minutes to get ready before going out.
