How to Apply Eyeliner on the Top Lid with a Pencil


One of the makeup products that can instantly brighten up or change your face is eyeliner. There are many types of eyeliner but by far the most common form is pencil eyeliner. These come in all sorts of colors of which brown and black are the most widely used. You can wear eyeliner in lots of styles. If you are a beginner, it is best to start with only the top lid.

Before you begin applying the eyeliner you want to check that the pencil comes to a tip. A flat eyeliner pencil will not give a steady line and will be much harder to work with. You also want to make sure that the eyeliner you are working with is of a creamy consistency and isn’t going to poke you in the eye. If it is hard, you can try heating it up with a hair dryer. The first instinct is going to be to stretch your eye lid. Doing this can cause premature lines and wrinkles. Gently close your eye and close your mouth for the best angle. Starting about a quarter of the way from the inner corner, begin drawing a line. Using small strokes, slowly draw from the corner out to the edge of the eye lid. You want to keep the line as close to the lash line as possible. Starting with a thin line is best. You can always go back and create a thicker line. In order to thicken the line go back to the point where you started the first line and draw in short strokes like the first line. This will add to the first line and keep it in the same line as the slim line.
