1. **Choose Your Eyeliner:**

   - There are different types of eyeliners available, including pencil, gel, liquid, and felt-tip. Choose the type that you feel most comfortable using and that best suits your desired look.

2. **Prepare Your Eyes:**

   - Start with clean, dry eyelids. You can apply eyeshadow or primer before eyeliner if desired, but it's not necessary.

3. **Hold Your Eyeliner Properly:**

   - Hold your eyeliner pencil or brush like you would a pencil or pen. For more control, rest your elbow on a flat surface while applying eyeliner.

4. **Start from the Inner Corner:**

   - Begin applying eyeliner from the inner corner of your upper lash line. For a thin line, use the tip of the eyeliner. For a thicker line, apply slightly more pressure or use the side of the eyeliner.

5. **Create Your Line:**

   - Extend the line outward, following the natural curve of your eye. You can make the line as thin or thick as you like. For a subtle look, keep the line close to your lash line. For a more dramatic look, extend the line further and create a winged effect.

6. **Connect the Outer Corner:**

   - Once you've reached the outer corner of your eye, connect the line to create a smooth, continuous line along your lash line.

7. **Adjust as Needed:**

   - If the line isn't perfect, don't worry! You can always go back and make corrections. Use a cotton swab dipped in makeup remover to clean up any mistakes or uneven edges.

8. **Optional: Tightline or Line the Lower Lash Line:**

   - If desired, you can also apply eyeliner to your lower lash line or tightline (the inner rim of your upper lash line) for added definition. Use caution when applying eyeliner to the waterline, as it can irritate sensitive eyes.

9. **Finish with Mascara:**

   - Complete your eye makeup look by applying mascara to your lashes to enhance volume and length.

Remember, practice makes perfect! Don't be discouraged if you don't get it right the first time. Experiment with different techniques and find what works best for you.
