2. Place your elbow securely on a table or flat surface, then rest your hand on your face (a steady hand equals a smooth line).

3. If you need to, use your other hand to gently pull your eye tautbut avoid tugging!

4. Start your line wherever you feel comfortablethe midpoint and inner corner are both popular optionsand place the liner tip as close to your lash line as possible.

5. Use small strokes to draw dashes along the lash line. Applying slightly more pressure will draw a thicker line.

6. Dab the liner to fill in any gaps.

7. Your liner should start thin in the inner corner, and get thicker toward the outer corners.

8. Dip a cotton swab in makeup remover and gently drag along the top of the line to remove any bumps.
