How should eyeliner be applied?

Using Eyeliner Correctly

Here's a little secret...eyeliner should be used to accentuate the lash line, not for color on the eyelid. If you have dark features, use a navy or deep brown liner (black makes eyes look tired) just above the lash line. If you have lighter features, try a deep brown. Then smudge outwards with your fingertip or eyeliner brush. Follow with a complimentary-colored mascara and don't forget to curl lashes BEFORE applying mascara! This will give your eyes a natural look with outstanding lashes!

Also, If you close your eye and slightly pull your lid outward, you can get much closer to the lash line and it usually makes it easier to get an even line
