How to Apply Eyeliner Pencil In An Easy Manner?

Eyeliner pencil

The trickiest aspect of a beauty process is probably applying eyeliner. It can seem very risky because if you mess up your eyeliner pencil, you might also mess up your eyeshadow and concealer under your eyes.

The perfect option if you have a shaky hand but still want the definition that this important step may bring with a pencil eyeliner. Here, we explain when to use a pencil eyeliner, how to apply it, and even offer some advice.

Eyeliner Pencil: When to Use It?

When it comes to eye makeup, pencil eyeliners, like the TARTE Double Duty BeautyTM Easy On The Eyes Clay Liner, are a great place to start if you’re new to using makeup or don’t usually go beyond a swipe of mascara.

Typically composed of a mixture of waxes, silicones, and oils, this kind of liner has a solid formula. They draw a clear, natural-looking line and are considerably easier to control than liquid eyeliner.

It’s simple to achieve a smokey, seductive effect with pencil liners because they can be easily smudged (many even include a built-in smudging tool).

Additionally, it works well for tight lining, a technique for defining the entire eyelid with eyeliner applied along the waterline.

How to Apply Eyeliner Pencil to Your Upper Lash Line?

Now that you are aware of what pencil liner is capable of, let’s discuss how to use it. For a step-by-step tutorial, continue reading.

Step 1: Pick the appropriate color

Your own preference will determine the ideal eyeliner color for you. Generally speaking, brown eyeliner will offer something a little more neutral while black eyeliner will produce a more dramatic impression.

With colored eye pencils, you can also think outside the box. These produce incredibly enjoyable, simple statement looks.

Step 2:  Cleanse and prime your eyelid

The one drawback of using pencil eyeliner is that it frequently doesn’t last as long as other liners. Wipe out any extra oil from the lid and use an eye primer to ensure that your liner lasts as long as feasible.

Step 3: Use eyeliner

Apply liner in small dashes, staying as close to the lash line as you can, from the centre of the eyelid to the outer corner of the eye while gently pulling your eyelid taut. For an incredibly thin line, use more of the pencil’s point; for a larger line, use more of the pencil’s side.

Once all of the dashes have been joined together to form a single, smooth line, move the pencil to the inner corner of the eye and follow the same method to fill in the liner from the inner lash line to the centre.

How to Use Eyeliner Pencil on Lower Lash Lines 

If you want a more dramatic effect, you can move to your lower lash line after you’ve achieved a smooth line along your upper lash line. If not, you can leave it where it is. If you want a smokey eye, this is perfect.

Step 1: Cleaning your bottom lash line

The lower lash line is typically lined with a pencil after the upper lash line has been covered in eyeshadow and liner. Inspect your lower lash line to make sure there is no spillage. If there is, use a cotton swab to gently wipe it away so you can begin with a brand-new, clean base.

Step 2: Complete the waterline.

To avoid poking your eye (ouch! ), angle the eyeliner pencil as you place it on your waterline. Fill in any gaps along the way by using a gentle sweeping motion just above your lash line, moving from the outside to the inner corner of your eyes.

The end effect ought to be a smooth line that offers a subtle definition and a generally natural appearance. Repetition of this method with tightening at the upper waterline will provide much more definition.

Tips And Tricks for Eyeliner Pencil

When using pencil eyeliner, there are a few useful strategies you may try out and play around with, just like with all makeup products. Here are a handful of our favorites.

Advice 1:  Use a naked eyeliner pencil on your waterline.

The best approach to give the appearance of bigger eyes is to use light-colored eyeliner. Normally, this is done with a white eyeliner pencil, but for a more understated option, use a nude-colored liner to achieve the same effect. To give your eyes a brighter, more alert appearance, use this around your waterline.

Advice 2: For all-day wear, set your eyeliner pencil with eyeshadow

As previously discussed, the shorter wear time of pencil eyeliner is one of its main drawbacks. Set your eyeliner with a matte black eyeshadow to keep it looking good for longer. Apply the shadow along the drawn line using an eyeshadow brush. Additionally, this can be used to cover up any minor errors you may have made with the pencil liner.

Advice 3: To Get a Subtle Look, Try the “Dot” Method

Make tiny dots or dashes as close to your lash line as you can if you don’t want the eyeliner to look obvious but yet want your upper and lower lashes to look bigger. Smudge the line with a cotton swab while using a very light hand. For this feat, expert advice suggests using a dark brown pencil. The effect will be the most authentic possible.

Summing up:

These eyeliners aren’t just for amateurs. When you want your eyes to stand out without it being evident that you’re wearing liner, pencil liner can give a softer appearance that works beautifully.
