Prepare your eyes for a perfect outline The key to a perfect liner is the same as for all good makeup: the base. It is useless to spend 10 minutes sweating the fat drop in a straight line if within half an hour of leaving home everything spoils us.
It is always good to start with a primer (such as Mary Kay® Medium Protection Foundation with SPF 15, which in addition to leaving us a perfect canvas, protects from the sun) to soften pores and keep excess oil under control. At the same time, it will help our eyeliner to set better and not move during the day.
Then we will use our favorite concealer and after setting it with some translucent powder… we are ready to outline! If you want, you can also apply shadows, we recommend that you do it before the eyeliner, so as not to stain it and have to repeat the process.
And the time has come … how to apply the eyeliner? You can use the typical pencil eyeliner or a liquid eyeliner, better for precise and marked lines.

Like everything in life, “each teacher has his booklet” and you have to see which application is easiest for you. For this reason, we bring you two ways to apply the outline so that you can test and identify the one that suits you best.
Application 1: Eyeliner from the inside out
Draw your line little by little with small strokes flush with the lash line. Start in the middle of the eye and work the line to the “corner”, then you can bring the line to the tear.
-Use a reference point to draw your “corner”, the most common is the end of your eyebrow, but it all depends on the angle you like best. -Connect the end of the corner you just drew with the first line you drew on the lashes.
*Fill and perfect your eyeliner. We already have the eye line! *With this technique you will achieve a more precise and subtle application.
Application 2: Eyeliner from outside to inside
In this case we start by painting our “corner” taking as a reference the end of the eyebrow.
-Connect the end of the corner you just drew with the lash line. -Trace your lash line connecting it with the corner of your eye. -Fill and perfect your eyeliner. -With this technique you will get a simpler application.
In either application, use this TIP: place your little finger on your cheek during the application to stabilize the pulse!
