Eyeliner Hack #3: Draw a Triangle

Pro tip: Try tightlining with your winged liner, AKA when you fill in your upper waterline (under your lashes) with your pencil. A filled in upper waterline helps create the illusion of thicker lashes and adds drama. Avoid going too far into your inner corner, so the liner doesn’t smudge or run. You can also use a nude pencil along the lower lash line to open up the eye.

Pro Tip: After using a stencil, go over your wing with a pigmented liquid liner for extra staying power, like our dual-ended Huda Beauty Life Liner Double-Ended Eyeliner Liquid & Pencil, $25. Seriously, this pencil does. Not. Budge.

Pro Tip: “If you make a mistake, LET IT DRY,” advises Glamsquad artistic director Kelli J. Bartlett. And before you question it, let Kelli explain her technique… “Saturate an angled brush in makeup remover (I love Lancôme Bi-Facil Double-Action Eye Makeup Remover, $30) and wipe away whatever you don’t want to see, making sure you clean the brush on a tissue in between strokes.”
