Use eyeliner to draw attention to your eyes. It’s super sexy and the easiest way to make your eyes pop!
Take the time to learn and master “eye-lining,” and once you do, you’ll enjoy creating a variety of different looks that will make your eye's look bigger and brighter in seconds! 

PENCIL Perfect
Choose pencil eyeliner to define your eyes and for it's ease of use. Smudge and blend for a softer, smoky look, or, go bold and dramatic with a thick solid line.
1. Sharpen the pencil and remove the pointy tip by gently running the tip over a tissue.
2. Very gently pull the outer corner of your eyelid out and up towards the end of your eyebrow.
3. Draw the line in one continuous motion or small baby strokes across the lash line, working from the inner corner outwards.
4. For added drama: make the line at the outside corner of the eye a bit thicker than the inside and extend it just slightly past the lash line.
5. Add several coats of black mascara to curled lashes.
EXTRA TIP:
If you have oily eyelids, use waterproof eyeliner to prevent undesired smudging.

LIQUID Eyeliner
Liquid eyeliner offers a bold and dramatic look that requires precision and a steady hand. Use the “trace method” for a flawless look.
1. Take a flat eyeliner brush and dip it into black eye shadow; tap excess off on a tissue.
2. Press and pat the brush along the lash line to create a straight line.
3. Take your liquid liner and simply “trace” over the already existing line. It doesn’t get much easier than that!
EXTRA TIP:
Allow the liner to dry before opening your eyes all the way to prevent the colour from transferring to your crease.
CAT EYE PERFECTION:
For a sultry dramatic look, turn the eyeliner up a little at the outer edge for a slight winged effect and the perfect cat eye.
What's your favourite way to wear eyeliner?
