Make-up can be a really tricky thing. It needs a lot of concentration and perfection.

Whether it is insufficient experience or shaky hands or lack of concentration, wearing an eyeliner can give you a tough time. But, there's nothing to worry. We, at Boldsky, have curated some amazing tips and tricks that will help you to apply eyeliner perfectly.

Amazing Eyeliner Tips & Tricks

Tips To Apply Eyeliner Perfectly

Know your liner

Before applying eyeliner, one must identify the type of liner that they are using. There are basically three types of eyeliners - liquid, gel, and pencil. It is quite an easy task to apply pencil eyeliner. Just one stroke of the pencil and you are done. However, it might take you some time to carve out a line with gel and liquid eyeliners. But with practice, you will master the art in no time.

Steady those shaky hands

Most women experience shaky hands while applying eyeliner. If you too experience the same, here are some easy tips:

  • Sit at a dressing table
  • Place your elbow on a flat surface like a table
  • Hold the liner over your upper lash line in such a way that your little finger is rested on your cheek. 
  • Now slowly apply the liner along your upper lashline and repeat the same on the other eye as well.

Apply eyeshadow to cover it up

If you think that the eyeliner you just applied isn't perfect and looks like a mess, you can simply cover it up by dabbing some black eyeshadow over it to make up for it.

Connect the dots

Even after a lot of practice, if you are still not confident enough to apply an eyeliner perfectly, you can simply begin wearing your liner by making some dots along your upper eyelid and then connecting them successfully.

Tight lining can help

If you are a newbie in the world of eyeliner, you can very well try tight lining. It basically means applying eyeliner below your lashline. The only thing one needs to remember while opting for tight lining is that you need to use a waterproof eyeliner.

Dab some powder

When you apply liquid eyeliner, it takes some time to get dry. And, if you apply it when you are in a hurry, you might end up smudging it - which is not good. In that case, you can apply some eyeliner and dab some translucent powder over it to prevent it from smudging.

Eyelash curler can come to the rescue

This is one simple and easy hack for those who do not know how to apply eyeliner perfectly. All you need to do is apply some eyeliner on your eyelash curler and then place it over your lashes so that the liner gets pasted on your lashline perfectly to give you that straight line.

Conceal it instead of re-doing it

If you ever feel that you have not applied some part of the eyeliner properly or some part gets smudged by mistake, you can simply dab some concealer on it to hide it and thus fix the error instead of wiping it off completely and re-doing it.

Try not to pull your skin

Also, when you are applying an eyeliner, remember that you should not pull your skin too hard. Let it remain in its natural position while you apply the eyeliner. It will give you more perfection.

Replace liquid liner with eyeshadow

Have you ever tried this? Using your eyeshadow as an eyeliner? Well, if you haven't, you must try it today. You can simply do this by using a wet eyeliner brush; dip it in your favourite eyeshadow, and carve out a line.
