#1 Get in position

Rest the elbow of your drawing hand on the table or against the mirror to keep it steady. You can also rest the fleshy part of a thumb against your cheek.

#2 Draw dots and dashes

It takes practice to create one single line across your lash line. In fact, even with practice, the line can sometimes turn out wavy and uneven.

Instead, draw dots and connect them with short strokes. After that, you can gradually fill in any spaces to smooth out or thicken the line.

#3 Wing it

Use the lower lash line as the starting point of the wing and draw the line upwards. There are no hard and fast rules for the angle and length.

Draw it in at a higher angle if you are going dramatic or go lower for a softer look.


#1: If you want to remove a smudge or create a sharp winged tip, simply use a cotton bud and swipe away.

#2: Begin by prepping with a lightweight eye cream and a primer. This allows eyeliner to glide on smoothly and last longer.
