The liquid liner..one of the most intimidating cosmetics known to womankind. From smudging the application, making skips, wobbly lines and mastering symmetry from one eye's look to the next..it can be scary. The good news? There are ways to cheat and get a flawless liquid line that will make your hand look like a steady eddie!
Step 1: If you have oily lids, then no matter whether you’re wearing shadow or not, it’s best to apply primer and some powder onto the lids to keep them dry so your liner does not smudge or break down over the day.

Step 2: This is the cheater's way of doing it! Take a regular eye pencil and lightly sketch out your line. This is easier to gain a steady hand with and if you make a mistake is easier to remove. Tip: Always start with they eye that you are less comfortable with first!
Step 3: Apply your liquid liner as a top coat over your pencil sketch. This adds a sharpness and shine but is easier to top off. It also will hide any skips and uneven lines.
Then practice makes perfect!
