Prep your eyes

Prepping your eyes is a key step most people skip in their routine. After cleansing your face, apply a moisturizer for the face and an eye cream around the eyes. The eye cream helps with premature wrinkles and evens out any redness or discolouration near the area.

Start with a clean base

Most people underestimate the importance of primer during makeup application. Applying a primer makes the skin smoother for easy application and a flawless finish.

To achieve an even and clean base, apply a small amount of eye primer on the eyelid, under your eyes, and around the general eye region where any kind of eye makeup would go. Apply concealer on top of the eyelid and the under eyes. Blend it well, and make sure to set it with a setting powder.

Line away

Start with a line above your lashes. Make sure you use small lines and strokes. It’s always better to build it up. If you make it too thick, you might create a mess out of it, so keep the strokes small. Once you are satisfied with one eye, do the same with the other one. Try to keep it as symmetrical as possible. The trick to finding the right angle is to follow the natural line of the lower lash line. If a line extended from your lower lash line, that is where your liner should wing out to. Map out the line and fill it in slowly. Take your time with this when you’re first starting because if you mess it up, you’ll have to start over.

Finishing the look

After you have successfully winged out your liner, you can proceed to line your lower lash line (only in the outer half) with a pencil liner and smudge it out. Apply some mascara, and you are done!
