How to Make Eyeliner Application Easy — No Matter How Fancy You Want Your Makeup to Look
For as long as I can remember, applying eyeliner has been part of my everyday makeup routine.
I began wearing eyeliner in my teens and I immediately saw how much it enhanced my eyes. I even remember the first time I went out wearing eyeliner, my friend commented on how great it looked — so I think her comment officially validated my new eye makeup choice. And although that day was more than 10 years ago, I feel naked every time I leave the house without anything on my eyes.
That aside, what makes eyeliner so fun is that it can be drawn above the upper lashes, below the lower lashes, or even on the water lines of the eyes. But drawing on a proper line takes a bit of practice — and a lot of patience.
"I often hear women say they can't use eyeliner, and I agree, eyeliner can be scary to apply," says celebrity makeup artist, Hector Simancas. "However, remember that Q-tips are your best friends, and you can use them to clean up every line."
There are so many different eyeliners available, and with each of them promising different results, it can be a challenge to identify which one to buy. But we're here to help.
Below, Simancas shares some tips on the best eyeliners for creating different looks, using super simple methods.
