Useful Tips for People Who Suck At Eyeliner

Eyeliner Tips 01


Last night, while I was streaming live on my Happy Mum Happy Child Facebook page, someone commented on how amazing my eyeliner was (seriously made my night, thank you).

However, I LAUGHED AND LAUGHED because about 20 mins prior to going live, I GOOGLED how to apply eyeliner.

I am USELESS when it comes to make-up.  Absolutely useless.  And last night I felt tired, and haggard, so I put makeup on to make me feel better / hide the tiredness.

During this time, I found this Buzzfeed article that helped me IMMENSELY.



I am no makeup artist.  I can barely draw a stick figure, let alone lines on my eyes.  So I read the above, digested it, and then changed the following in my eyeliner habits:

  • Rested my elbow on a surface, instead of just trying to draw it on mid air
  • Didn’t pull my eyelid when applying the eyeliner
  • Used concealer to hide the mistakes (and there were still a few)
  • Used a liquid eyeliner

I have gotten used to using a liquid eyeliner over the years, mainly because trying to use a pencil always hurts my eyelids.

Do you have any tips or tricks when it comes to eyeliner?
