Choose eyeliner based on the effect you want. For a softer or smudgy line, use a dark powder shadow or pencil. For the most dramatic look or when you want a more graphic line, go for gel or liquid liner.
Wriggle the mascara brush deep into the roots of the top lashes to deposit the most mascara along the lashline, then draw the brush upwards to the lash tips to gradually coat and gently curl each lash as you go. Apply one coat to the lower lash line to make eyes pop.
