Eyeliner Tips

Pencil liners can be used above top lashes and under lower lashes. Liquid liners should only be used on the top lid.

A liquid eyeliner that you use with a fine brush will stay on the best. If you don't feel adept at this, pencils work well also. Pencils can be smudged for a subtle look. Always hold your head back, look down into the mirror, and apply your eyeliner. This will keep your eyelid skin tight and you can make a smooth line.

Don't apply eyeliner in a thick line. It looks harsh and makes the eye appear heavy and tired. Get out of the 60s and instead use a fine line. If you have trouble, use a brush to blend and smooth it out.

To enhance deep-set eyes line both the upper and lower lids, then choose light eye shadows such as pale pink, peach or beige.

Here's how to minimize the chances of makeup irritating your eyes when you're wearing your lenses. Apply your make-up after inserting your lenses. You must use waterproof eye make-up and it must be hypo-allergenic.

Do not apply eyeliner to the inner edge of the lid or above the lash line on the lower lid.
