Instructions
1. Look straight ahead into the mirror and avoid widening your eyes.
2. Use a flat eyeshadow brush and gently blend the eye shadow onto your lid.
3. Using the same technique of looking straight ahead, take your liquid eyeliner and carefully apply on your lash line.
4. Keeping your eyes open will allow you to see where you are placing your liner and how thick it is. Start at the corner of your eyes and sweep the eyeliner diagonally, creating a wing.
5. All done! Like every makeup technique, it takes practice to become comfortable with the application. Don't get frustrated - remember your eye makeup application should look like sisters, not twins!!
