When applied properly, eyeliner can be the one thing that gives your look a completely new definition. You know how frustrating proper application can be, don’t you? That being said however, there are some things that you can do in order to make sure that you apply your eyeliner better. So without much ado, here are 5 things you’re probably doing wrong, and 5 way to correct them. You can thank us later!

  • What you’re probably doing wrong:

You’re probably using too blunt a point on your eyeliner

  • How to rectify it?

That’s really simple. Before the point on your eyeliner pencil goes to blunt, sharpen it. Blunt points can lead to unnecessarily thicker than normal lines, which to your eyes may seem normal, but in actuality are not. So always keep a eyeliner pencil sharpener handy in your makeup kit and get yourself the kind of lining you deserve!

  • What you’re probably doing wrong:

When wearing colored eyeliner you’re overextending it by accentuating both the upper and lower part of your eyelids.

  • How to rectify it?

Colored eyeliner can be a double edged sword (pun intended) especially if you’re an novice. Going to town on both lids of the eye therefore can make your look a little OTT. Experiment with either the upper or lower lid and see which one works for you. You don’t want to end up with a black/blue/red/white or brown eye there, do you?

  • What you’re probably doing wrong:

You find that your liquid liner smudges a little too often, or too quickly, then you’re probably using it on the wrong part of the eye.

  • How to rectify it?

Stick with the conventional eyeliner pencil for the lower portion of the eyeline, as it is more ‘solid’ and less prone to drip, if you must line the top, a gel eyeliner is much more recommended as it isn’t exposed to water of moisture from the eyes as much!

  • What you’re probably doing wrong?

You find that your eyeliner is smudged after you’ve curled your eyelashes.

  • How to rectify it?

Always use the magic formula, curl first, line second. Simple substitution in your routine to be precise!
