The first time you glide some eyeliner across your lower lash lids, you'll have an eye-opening experience. Wearing even the slightest amount can brighten your eyes and make your face appear fresh and awake. The easiest way to apply eyeliner is on the lower lids right over the lashes.

Step 1

Look in the mirror. Tilt your chin down and position your eyes upward.

Step 2

Place the eyeliner pencil at the inner corner of the lower lash. Position it right on top of the lashes.

Step 3

Line the lashes starting at the inside, and move across until your lashes stop at the outer corner. Press a little harder and glide the liner all the way across for a little drama. If you want a more subtle look, use light pressure with small strokes. You can also extend the liner a little beyond the eye corner for a flirty feel.

Step 4

Dip a cotton swab in eye makeup remover. Eliminate any eyeliner that has smudged or is out of place.

Step 5

Dust a little sheer powder underneath the liner. This is to ensure it doesn't run when your face gets oily or you tear up.
