How to Apply Pencil Eyeliner – tutorial

There may be different ways of applying the pencil eyeliner. This is just how I apply it. Hope you find this tutorial useful. :) It’s a long tutorial because I wanted to show you all the steps I do. Otherwise it barely takes a minute to do each eye.

If you have oily lids like me, just dust some loose powder on your lids or prim your eyes with some foundation / base and then dust some loose powder to make your lids matte. This would prevent the liner from smudging and would make it last longer.
pencil eyeliner

I am using the faces eyeliner pencil. You may use any eyeliner . I like the pencils that could be sharpened because that way I can sharpen the tip of the pencil and create the thinnest of lines. but whatever you prefer. :)

Faces Eye Liner

Start from the center of the lid and move your way out. Keep your pencil slanted, this will help move the liner easily on your lids. Make short strokes. You don’t have to draw the complete line in one go.

Go outwards…

Come inward. Keep the outer most corner thicker and you can retrace the liner on the outer corner to make it thick.

Now from the center extend the liner inward. You must keep in mind that as you go inward , you have to make a thinner line. So take your time. Keep your pencil pointed straight on your lid. This may help in achieving a thinner line.

eyeliner inwards

Now connect the line from the very inner corner of your eye to the center of the liner. (I should have made a little more thick line towards the center but I didn’t realize it until the very end of the tutorial. Very sorry for that. ) the line should be proportional moving form thick on the outer corner to thin on the inner corner.

inner corner

Now that you have traced the line, apply you liner in short strokes very close to your lashes. This would fix the parts where your skin would still be showing  near your eyelashes.close to lashes

Now coming to the lower lash line. Place your liner on the very edge of your lower lash line. Almost where your liner of the upper lash line is ending. It’s like you have to make a “V” on the outer corner of your eye.

Move inwards in short strokes.

Go till the inner third of the eye.

Go back to the outer corner and thicken it a bit.

Now using your ring finger very very gently start smudging your lower lash line. All you have to do is move your finger left and right on your lower lash line without putting any pressure. The liner would start fading itself.

smudge lower lash line

If you are not comfortable using your finger, use a pencil brush.

It would look something like this:

Now the waterline. Take any black eye kohl. I am using MAC Feline Kohl.

If you have ever used surma in your life, you’d probably find this easy. I line my upper water line and lower waterline in one go.

Place the tip of your kohl flat on your eye. Don’t poke it in your eye, just place it almost on the center of your eyes. Close your eyes and move the pencil left and right.

My eyes started watering because I was holding the eye kohl too long inside my eye. I had to click so couldn’t help. Trust me, it’s very easy.

Curl lashes and apply mascara.

Now take some powder on flat brush:

and place it right on the edges of your liner. This would prevent the liner from smudging.

You can do the same thing on the upper lash line as well :)

and you are done! :) You can apply a light shimmer eyeshadow or eyeliner in the inner corner of your eye but for day time I like to leave it like that.

Let me know if you have any questions. :)

It’s not tough. If you find any problem with your liner, just take come makeup remover on a Q tip and fix it.  :)

can you pleeeezzz do a tutorial on using gel liners… I recently bought two Inglot AMC Gel liners, but when i tried using them, I ended up looking like a daayan…( :daayan: )…with the whole thing getting way too thick and smudged.. :cry:
so, please help….and also suggest the best brush I can use for applying gel liners!!

Reply

Rati July 11, 2011 at 10:42 pm

i use inglot 30 t brush for gel liners. :)

Thanks Riz for asking this
Rati.. I tried a sample at Macy’s recently and I used SmashBox Gel liner. It was so hard for me to put a proper line.
BTW, thanks for this turorial!! kajal on the waterline is always a problem for me and somehow I cannot put it on the upper line. I have super sensitive watery eyes which just adds more smudging to my already half done upper line. :yikes: Somehow its never complete.. I will try your tips

Reply

Rati July 11, 2011 at 10:48 pm

hope it works suganya. i also find it quite difficult to put liner on upper waterline. another thing you can do is that you heavily out liner on your lower waterline and close your eye tightly. that would transfer the liner on your upper waterline as well. :)

Wow, thanks for the tip rati, i apply pencil liners like this only but putting kajal like surma scares me away, whenever i try to put surma, i keep my eyes open and the result is fallout n fallout n fallout :headbang: :headbang: :headbang: and i end up looking like a chudael :ghost2: :ghost2: with black powder spread all over my cheeks

Rati July 11, 2011 at 10:40 pm

you put surma with open eyes? :lol2:

yeah vid if you are not comfortable doing it, just avoid it. I have been wearing surma since ages now so it kinda looks normal to me. :))

Wow…what a nice & detailed tute. I’ve learnt quite a few new things here, like starting at the middle of the eyelids, and also how to line both the upper & lower waterline together. I never knew how to do that, so have been avoiding it all this while. Thanks a lot, Rati.

hi rati,
Nice tut, :thumbsup:

just today mroning i used tht Avon wala Glimmersticks (emerald) and was wondering how to draw the line on upper lash line, its kinda but sticky – sticky (the retractable pencil one) so cudnot get a clean straight line in multiple strokes also …. :(

and will Blue liner suit fair/wheatish Complexion with d.brown eyes ? :struggle: :stars:

Please help ! :waaa: :waaa: :waaa: :waaa: :waaa:

Reply

Rati July 12, 2011 at 2:40 pm

Firdous , it’s actually important that you liner is smooth. I mean no one can dry fine lines with sticky liners no? :(

yeah blue would suit your eyes. :)

Hey Rati…
Great Post! Very helpful…and very well explained.
I had one question though, my liner/kajal smudges towards the outer corner of eye, after few hours. It also smudges on the lower lash but I think applying loose powder below the lash is helpful.
Btw loved the line shade that you used :waytogo:
