How to Apply Liquid Eyeliner

You should be moving the liquid towards the outer edge.

You’ll notice there are a few gaps between the outer corner of your eye and the inner edge of your lash line. Use the liquid and slowly connect this up with gentle strokes.

Here’s the tricky part. You need to hold the outer corner of your eyelid and pull it outwards with the pencil. Notice that straightline that you’ve formed? Beautiful line right there. For a perfect look, start at the inner corner of your eye and rub eyeliner towards the outer part of your eyelid. Gentle short strokes, will give you the perfect look.
