7. Make your own gel liner by warming the tip of a kohl liner with a lighter.
Hold the tip of the liner right above the flame for a few seconds, and then test the pencil on the back of your hand before lining your eyes.
8. If getting a perfect line is too challenging, draw a rough line first, and then sharpen it with a cotton swab and petroleum jelly.
Sometimes erasing mistakes is easier than trying to nail it the first time.
9. For a really natural look, tightline your liner by applying it in between the lashes instead of across the top of the lash line.
The easiest way to do this is to fill in your top lashes from the underside. This will make your eyelashes look fuller but won't leave you looking too made up.
10. Simplify drawing a straight line by lining your eyes with dots first, and then connecting them.
Make sure your dots aren't too big. They should be the same size that you'd like the width of your line to be.
11. Create an eye-opening ombré effect by fading a lighter color into a darker eyeliner.
Start at the inner corner of your eye and line the first three-quarters of your lash line with a light eyeliner, such as white. Then, grab a darker eyeliner and line the outside corner of your eye, then move toward the middle of your eye and stop halfway. Grab a sponge brush and begin blending the middle section where the two colors overlap.
12. Use the edges and curves of a spoon to master the perfect cat-eye shape.
Use the handle of the spoon to draw the angled line and the curve of the spoon to create the shape. Then fill it in to finish the flick.
