It can be tricky at first, but eyeliner is a must this season, so start practising now. Firstly, choose the right tool for the look you want and the skills you have. Liquid liners give you a very precise line but require a steady hand; creamy pencils can create a smudged, smokey look and are more forgiving. For softer definition, wet shadow is a super easy option. Applying liner in short strokes rather than in one long line also aids control – just keep a cotton tip on hand to perfect lines before they set. Still having trouble? Ask a cosmetics consultant for a demo next time you hit the department store.
