Weeeeeks ago lovely @vanessaawoo on Instagram requested for me to do a simple how-to on how I do my eyeliner! And I say, that's a great idea! I'm sure you guys have sick with all of my reviews and stuff. Time for a little How-to, shall we? ;)

So, what is eyeliner for me? Simple, eyeliner is LIFE. Eyeliner might be first makeup product that I own, and been experimenting ever since. I should say that I really like my routine now and I've discover some awesome products too.

Now let's jump in to the tutorial!

        PRODUCTS I USED :       

Eyeshadow Curler (Shu Uemura)
The Rocket Mascara (Maybelline)
Beige Cream Shadow (Innisfree)
Cream Matte Eyeshadow (Etude House)
Brown Matte Eyeshadow (3CE)
Eyeshadow Brush (Real Technique)


Starting off with just eyeshadow - I think eyeliner sticks better to powdered surface. So I use Cream Eyeshadow as the best and slightly layered with Matte Brown Shadow. I also highlight my brow bone with Cream Eyeshadow. You can totally skip this and powder your lid instead. 


Line your upper waterline. To do this easily, tilt your head up and put your mirror slightly lower, while lightly tuck your lid (super lightly!). It might be uncomfortable or ticklish at first, but after a few times you'll get used to it.  


For my liner, I always use Pen Brush Liner, it's easy to control and I think it's the best for making clean and fast lines. I like to start from the middle, I slightly line to see how thick I want it to be. 


Following the natural lid curve, continuing the line I drew before. And at the end, I flick it out somewhat heading to the end of me eyebrow. Because I like my eyeliner to be thick, I give a small gap between so later I can fill them in.


Next, a lot of people find this to be quite tricky. To connect the whole line, just follow your lower eye-line angle and elongate it until it meet the end of the upper line you made before! When I want to make it longer, I usually just drew it out more continuing the lower eye-line. 

Sometime when I did mistake and the end is not as sharp as I wanted, I just take a cotton bud with a little bit of makeup remover and just slightly pulling it upward so that it makes the end sharp!


This might be the easiest part, fill in the gaps! :D If you line your waterline (step 2), the line will look much cleaner because there's no visible gap between your eyeliner and waterline. 

Make sure you go through your eyelashes gaps, because sometimes I miss some when I'm in hurry D:


Still in the filling in the gap step, don't forget the inner corner! 


Now is the last eyeliner step, the finishing part! After I get all those done, I look straight into the mirror and see what might look weird. Because my eyelids are different from one another, usually what happen is the difference with the liner thickness (or sometimes, the 'flick' angle, again, correct with cotton bud!). 

What I did, I correct stuff while I open my eyes. In the picture, my eyeliner went inside to my eyelid and isn't very visible, so I just add some more to make the line look even (the inner part looks more thinner).

 Sometimes it looked perfect when I close my eyes / tilt my head up, but you see sometimes the lid 'hides' the eyeliner and make it look uneven when I opened my eyes. 

Then, do the same process into the other eye! :p I promise you the other one will be so much faster, but you still have to be careful if not you'll know what will happen! 


The finishing touch! I add Black Eyeliner Pencil to 1/3 of my lower lash line, and put on some mascara!


       MORE TIPS :      

1. Think of eyeliner and makeups and beauty stuffs are skill - the more you practice, the better you at your skill, same like every other skill! Even when you're going nowhere, just play with your eyeliner - so when you NEED that eyeliner look, you'll be ready by then! ;)

2. Study your eye shape - the same eyeliner look will look different for everyone. Experiment and see what look / style suits you best!

3. For pen brush eye liner - store your eyeliner upside down when you think the liner came out weak / not as pigmented. 

4. REMEMBER : It's easy to draw more, it's difficult to erase.
