How to Apply Eyeliner Pencil

Pencils are easier to use and look more natural than liquid eyeliners.  They also give you a smooth finish that can even be made to look softer with a little smudge technique.

If you have any scars or blemishes on your eyelid, first dab Cleure Total Cover Concealer with a small brush or makeup sponge to the area.

1.  Eyeliner pencil should be soft and easy to apply.  You should not have to press hard to see any color. 

2.  Always choose a shade that compliments your eye color:
  • Brown eyes best eyeliner shade is brown, smokey green or purple
  • Blue eyes can choose dark brown eyeliner.
  • Green eyes look best with brown, smokey green, purple or bronze eyeliner.
3.  Starting with the upper inner corner of your eyelid, draw a line with the angled eyeliner brush in the 5 Brush Set, as close to the lash as possible to the center of the upper eyelash.  Next, start drawing a line from the outer corner of the lash inward, joining the two lines.  Make sure not to pull, tug or stretch the delicate tissues above your lashes.  Close the eye to draw each line.  Gently blend the two lines with a small brush or sponge tip applicator.

4.  Next starting with the outer corner of the eye, draw a line under the bottom lashes to the center of the eye under the pupil.  For the lower line, stopping at the center, makes the eye appear wider.  If you desire, you can line the remainder of your lower lash area from the inner corner to the center.

5.  For both the upper and lower area, keep the line thin on the inner corner and thicker on the outer corner.

6.  For a softer look, gently smudge the line with a small brush from the 5 Piece Brush Set.
