Beauty How-To: Apply Pencil Eyeliner

How to Apply Pencil Eyeliner:
Eye liner is a cosmetic essential. Without it eyes would be undefined, unappealing, and even unnoticed. This makeup standard is the key to a pulled-together face, and both pencil and liquid applications can be a breeze.

Select a Quality Pencil Liner:
A decent pencil will leave a solid, dark line without much pressure being applied. Test the application on the back of your hand before you purchase a product if your store allows for testers. Waterproof liners are also great because they are long lasting and smudge-proof.

Prep Your Space and Your Face :
This ain’t no lipstick trick- you do need a mirror. Good lighting is also a plus, and eye shadow should be applied before the liner.

Pull Your Lid Taut:
With your eye closed, use your free hand to pull the far corner of your eye outward so that the lid is tight and uncreased, sort of life the “after” of a bad face lift.

Line Your Eyes:
Starting from either corner, draw sort and soft dashes of liner across your lid, keeping the line as close to your lash line as possible. All of the small stroke should blend into the next one so that the small dashes are attached to each other.

Increase the Impact:
Draw one seamless and fluid line across the one you just made, keeping the pencil close to the lash line, thickening toward the outer corner.

Blend Your Line:
For a more natural appearance, use a sponge tool, cotton swab, or finger to blend the liner, creating a softer look and the impression of a more defined lash line.

Line Your Lower Lid:
Move from the outer crease of your eye on the lower lash line and create the same soft, light sweeps of eye liner under your bottom lid. Note: this will make your eyes look smaller.

Lock in the Liner:
Apply a light coating of eye shadow over the eyeliner to set it and prevent it from smudging.

How to Get Through an Overplucked Period:
We’ve all been there. It starts with one stray hair and a tweezer-rampage later it look like you took a John Deere to your eyebrows. Luckily it’s nothing a little makeup, and a lot of time, can’t fix.

Use a brow brush or comb to brush over-plucked eyebrows into place. Think of it as an eyebrow comb-over. Use a clear eyebrow gel to keep them in place.

Try an eyebrow stencil:
Purchase an eyebrow stencil. Place it around your eyebrows to see where your best shape lyes, and when you pluck in the future to avoid going overboard.

Camouflage over-plucked eyebrows:
There is always the sheild-from-sight approach. This entails a new haircut complete with brow-reaching bangs, and Holly Golightly oversized sunglasses.
