    Apply your mascara:
    • Clamp an eyelash curler on the roots of your eyelashes and squeeze gently for five seconds. This will give your lashes volume and instantly open up the eyes. For even more curl, clamp the eyelash curler on the middle and tips of lashes, squeezing gently to avoid a 90 degree angle.

    • Apply a primer to your lashes. (Many mascaras are now double-sided and come with primer on one end.) The primer will thicken the lashes. Be sure to brush the outer and inner corners. Let dry for 30 seconds.

    • After 30 seconds, wipe off any excess primer with a tissue. Sweep one coat of mascara on the upper lashes from the roots to the tips. Use brown or brownish-black mascara if you are fair-skinned or blonde. Otherwise use black.

    • While the first coat is still wet, apply a second layer of mascara. Applying a second coat when the first coat is dry will look clumpy.

    Apply your eyeliner:

    • Soften the tip of your eyeliner pencil by rolling it between your fingers. This will help the color glide on easily.

    • Gently pull your eyelid taut and beginning at the inner corner, draw small, connected dashes as close as possible to the roots of the upper lashes just make sure to apply a bright color to the tight line and the water line and then go over the natural line with a black eyeliner or any color of your choice

Tips

  • If you are lining the inner rims of the eyes, use an eye pencil instead of a liquid liner, which may contain more bacteria.
  • If your eye area is sensitive or you have contacts, normal mascara and liner may irritate. Use hypoallergenic.
  • If you are a redhead, use black mascara because it will make your eyelashes look longer and more delicate.
  • Replace mascara as soon as it begins to get dry, not just when it runs out.
  • Use bright eyeshadows on your inner corner and then blend.
  • Use a white eyeliner pencil to make your eyes look way bigger than usual.
  • Use the white shadow on the tight line of the eye and the water line at the bottom of the eye.

Warnings

  • Do not separate lashes with a safety pin, or any pin for that matter. You can poke your eye and go blind.
  • Do not apply mascara or liner in a moving car or bus.
  • Do not remove messed up eye shadow with alcohol or face cleansers.
  • Remove all eye makeup with a makeup remover wipe or Vaseline and a tissue.
