How to draw the perfect eyeliner
Eyeliner is a bare necessity when it comes to makeup. Whether you’re heading out for a party with your friends or getting ready for work– eyeliner can help you highlight your eyes and tie your makeup look together. However, applying it perfectly can be a real challenge. You might end up with a line that’s too thin or thick, or even worse- one line is wider than the other.
Most women would agree that applying liquid eyeliner is a daunting task which is why many gravitate towards pencil eyeliners. The pencil allows more room for error compared to its counterpart, but it fails to deliver that snatched look. And that makes us come back a full circle to liquid eyeliners.
If you are among the lucky ones who get it right every time, we salute you! But, if you are part of the remaining 99% who are still figuring out how to apply eyeliner, here are a few tips that might help.
Prep your eyes
The first step is important, but it is usually overlooked by most women. After you have cleansed your face, apply moisturizer or an eye cream around your eyes to hydrate the area. It helps diminish the appearance of wrinkles and lines. It is ideal to wait for 5-10 mins, so the moisturizer absorbs into your skin.
The next step is to apply an eye primer and concealer to your eyelids and cover any discoloration. Finish it off with setting powder to seal the makeup in place. This trick works well for oily eyelids and gives the eyeliner a matte base to cling to.
Choose your eyeliner
There are three types of eyeliners:
- Pencil eyeliner
- Gel eyeliner
- Liquid eyeliner
The basic trick to nail this art is to choose the right type of eyeliner.
Pencil eyeliners are the most forgiving, so if you’re a newbie, they can be your best friend. Not only do they offer better grip and control, but they are also perfect for creating smoky eyes. The only drawback of pencil eyeliners is that they don’t give a precise or smooth finish.
Gel eyeliners also glide on effortlessly, but they tend to smudge easily. They are more long-lasting compared to pencil eyeliners. Finally, liquid eyeliners are the hardest to use out of the three. Despite its challenging application, liquid eyeliners deliver precision and sharp lines that you can’t achieve with the other two.
Whichever eyeliner you choose, you should start with a line right above your lashes. Make sure to use small strokes and always start with a thin line. You can gradually build the intensity and thickness of the eyeliner, but starting with a thick line can be a recipe for disaster.
Once you are drawn the first eye, you can replicate the same on the other one. Try to keep it as well-proportioned as possible.
You can add a wing to the line if you want something more dramatic. The trick here is to follow the natural line of the lower lash line. Extend the line slowly and stop where you want the wing to end. It is better to start with a small wing and lengthen it gradually if you’re not happy with the result. Finish it by joining the upper part of your eyeliner to the wing you created.
Tips for eyeliner application
Following are some tricks to help you apply your liner like a pro!
- Don’t stretch your eyelids when drawing a wing
- Rest your elbow somewhere to avoid shaky lines
- Use the magnifying side of a cosmetic mirror for application
- Align a tape or card with your lower lash line to create a wing

FAQs about TLC’s permanent eyeliner treatment
- What is permanent eyeliner?
Permanent eyeliner is a form of makeup that is tattooed on the skin. It frames your eyes and makes your lashes appear fuller and thicker. It can enhance the shape of the eyes, create the illusion of larger eyes, and even out the symmetry of your eyes. The eyeliner is applied thinly, very close to the lash line for people who prefer a more natural look. The eyeliner is applied in a thicker line for those who want a more dramatic look.
- What are the benefits of permanent eyeliner?
There are several benefits of permanent eyeliner, such as:
- It defines your eyes and makes them more attractive.
- It doesn’t smudge, smear, or wear off.
- It saves money and time.
- Perfect for people with sensitive skin.
- Great for people with sparse eyelashes.
- It is ideal for people with vision problems or unsteady hands.
- Does it hurt?
The treatment is carried out with topical anesthetics that minimize pain to a large degree. However, since pain is a subjective notion, some sensitive clients may feel some discomfort. The same goes for people with a low pain threshold.
- How long does the permanent eyeliner last?
The treatment offered by The Lash Chapter lasts for up to 2 years on average. However, everyone’s skin is different, so there’s no guarantee of how long it will stay on you. Since the pigments tend to fade over time, Touch-Up is recommended to retain their precision and color.
- What is The Lash Chapter price for eyeliner embroidery?
You can visit The Lash Chapter’s website to schedule an appointment. The price of the treatments isn’t mentioned there, but you can always call their customer service to find out.
