Another way of using liquid eyeliner is to to use BOTH liquid and pencil. I line the inner rims with a pencil first (between the lashes) and make it a little bit thick. Then I go over it with a liquid liner. All you have to do is follow the line. For the top eye lid another way to have a striaght line with a liquid eyeliner is to pull your eyelid from the side, making it a bit elongated, and then run the liquid eyeliner along the lid with one single stroke. If it comes out to thin, then go over it again. One single stroke will make a more even line. If your hands get shaky, even out the line with a Q-tip dipped in eyeliner remover, but be careful not to smudge your line.
This is usually what I do. I find that it's easier to get right into the lashes with a pencil, then i finish the look with liquid. I'm not sure if it's me but if I use just a liquid, I'll often have to go over and get into the lashes anyway, because it just doesn't look right, almost like there are tiny gaps at the lashline. If you're having steadiness of hand issues, I usually rest the base of my hand/my wrist against the side of my chin or my jaw/cheek.

Thanks for the liquid liner tips enrichi. I bought myself a liquid liner a couple of months ago, but I could never get it to look the way I wanted. It kept going crooked on me and I eventually just gave up on it. Maybe I'll give it another shot now.

how do you guys apply liner on the bottom without smudging it? i use crayon, and it always gets smudged after a few hours. do you apply it above or below the lower lashes?

I think you might want to change to a different liner?

I have pretty watery eyes but have never had a problem with Rimmel Kohl or Chanel Kohl smudging/fading

has anyone seen uma on the cover of entertainment?
her makeup is perfect.... i can NEVER achieve the look she has going... if anyone has seen that cover let me know how you get eyes to look like that, not over done on the bottom.... i always go too heavy and does anyone use liquid on the bottom?
One trick I use for lining the bottom is to line them nice and thick first so that you get a good even line. Then dip a Q-tip into eye makeup remover, dab off the excess remover onto a tissue, and use the Q-tip to gently thin out the liner. With just a little practice, you can get a perfect, thin but dark line. At the end I use the other end of the Q-tip to put loose powder under the liner to absorb any left over remover. [/b][/quote]
This is how I get a perfect thin line as well. I think Q-Tips have to be one of the most useful make-up tools there are

Ok - I've used eye liner before, usually liquid but dont have any at the mo and want the look. So am thinking of using powder. What is the best way to apply it (wet or dry) and where to. Have nice eyes with long lashes but am lackig inspiration. Can anyone help???
I find it stays on longer and goes on better when the powder is wet.

I also apply it thinly but on the inside (on the part that closest to touching the eye ball)

You can use any color that you like! I use metalic purples, pinks, greys, bright blues. They all look great.

Just have fun with it

Eyeliner is key this season. Black is the best bet for the Sixties-influenced thick line with the all-important flick on the outside corner that gives it a modern edge. Think Prada and Blumarine's spring/summer 2003 shows and pray for a steady hand. Pencils allow for more mistakes than the more unforgiving felt-tip and liquid liners, but if you really can't get it right, start by making a template to draw around on each lid.
