How to apply eyeliner:

Step1: Rest the elbow of your dominant arm on a hard surface and your wrist on your face.

Step 2: Slightly tilt your head back and keep your eyes half open:
This creates a good angle for application at the same time allowing you to see what you are doing.

Step 3: With your left index finger (in case you are right handed) or right index finger (in case you are left handed) gently pull your eyelid to the side and slightly up, toward the end of your eyebrow.
This step is optional as stretching the eye may encourage wrinkling that’s the reason some people prefer to line relaxed eye.

Step 4: Draw a line across your upper lid (as close to the lash line as possible).
Note:  In case you are using liquid liner allow it to dry before opening your eyes (else the color may transfer into the crease of your eye).

Step 5: Gently smudge the line with your brush, a cotton swab or your finger (to soften the look).

Step 6: Line the lower lid:
Moving from the outside edge inward draw a line (close to the lower lash) slightly thicker at outside corner and becoming thinner as it moves in toward your nose.
