Do you know what I suck at? Eyeliner. I don’t know which type to buy, I don’t know which color works best with my eyes, and I certainly don’t know how to apply it, but thanks to these FANTASTIC tutorials I found on YouTube, I’m finally learning how to apply eyeliner PROPERLY.
At least I think I am.
It’s taken a lot of trial and error both with different techniques and products, but I think I’m finally in a good place when it comes to my eye makeup. Tutorial #6 tends to work best with my eyes and skill set, and I’m really crushing on L’Oreal Paris Infallible Never Fail Eyeliner these days, but all of these looks are pretty spectacular if your hand is steady enough to pull them off!
HOW TO APPLY EYELINER BY MAKEUP GEEK
This is one of the FIRST make-up tutorials I ever watched when I was trying to up my beauty game, and it’s still one of my favorites. While I have dabbled in various kinds of eyeliners over my life, eye pencils are still my favoite and Makeup Geek gives some great tips in this tutorial. She recommends the Urban Decay 24/7 Glide On Eye Pencil, with Rimmel eye pencils being a close second for those who are more budget-conscious. I’ve had luck with both, and love her trick for applying eyeliner to your waterline and preventing it from running!
