  • 1. Get to know the different areas of your eye when it comes to makeup

  • 1. Inner corner
2. Mid lid
3. Outer corner or outer V
4. Crease
5. Lower brow bone
6. Brow bone or highlight area
7. Waterline
8. Lower lash line
9. Inner corner of lower lash line

  • 2. Determine what kind of eye shape you have.

  • Hooded eyes have an extra layer of skin that droops over the crease, which makes the lid appear smaller. Monolid eyes, however, have a less defined brow bon

  • 3.  Apply winged eyeliner that works for your eye shape.

  • For monolid eyes, try a thicker line. For more down-turned eyes, don't forget to line the bottom outer corners.

  • 8. If you have a shaky hand, just connect the dots.

  • This trick makes it a lot easier to get a smooth, straight line. Once you graduate from dots, try to connect dashes. You'll know you've officially made it when you can smoothly draw a complete line.
  • 9. If you’re in a rush, apply your liner and curl your lashes all at the same time.

  • Just line the metal rim of the eyelash curler with a charcoal pencil and you're all set.
