Well eyeliner in general is used to make your eyes bigger and to stand out, so if you just apply it the old-fashioned way, it is bound to make your eyes pop.

There are several kinds of liners, including pencils, paint pots, gel, and liquid. The easiest is the pencil, and the softest on your eyes and smoothest application is the soft kohl pencils. Liquid is the hardest to apply.

The most basic and fool-proof way to apply makeup is:

1. Always apply your eye shadow first, so that if you apply your liner first the shadow doesn't go over top and dull the effect.

2. With one of your fingers, gently pull the outside edge of your eye out so that when you close your eye your lid, especially the upper lash line, is flat for easy application.

3. With your liner, apply it as closely as possible to your lashes, just above your natural lash line. Make sure that it starts very thin on the inside of the eye, and slowly thickens out at the edge of your eye. You can adjust exactly how thick you want it depending on the effect you want. Apply it slightly thicker if you want a more dramatic look.

4. Using a dark powder, either brown or black, you can just brush it along the bottom lash line from the outer edge to about half way in to make the look more dramatic. This step is optional.

Should you put eye liner on the bottom water line of the eye?

That is a decision that would need to be completed by you. It is okay to place eyeliner on your lower & upper water line ( never liquid ). But bare in mind that there is a risk of bacteria getting into your eye which can cause sty eye. If that is something that you don't mind taking the risk at, then go for it! Applying eyeliner to your lower water line can create the illusion that your eyes are bigger or smaller. If you decide you want to apply a natural or white eyeliner it can make the whites of your eyes appear brighter.
