So, to recap:

1. Think about the shape of your eye.
If you have small eyes, keep the liner thin as completely ringing your eye with liner can make it look smaller.
If you have very close set eyes, don’t take the liner all the way into your inner corner, as it can make your eyes look even more closely set together.

2. Use a moderately sharpened pencil – don’t sharpen it to a tight point as it will probably crumble. Don’t use a completely blunted down pencil either, as you will lose definition. You want to have control of the line you are creating.

3. Lie the pencil on it’s side and move it through the lashline, using small, even strokes.
Start in the middle of your eye, move the pencil through the outer corner, ans then come back through the inner corner.
Don’t try to pull it through in one perfect sweep – chances are it will bounce across the eye and make a bumpy, uneven mess.

4.Using an eyeliner brush (like the Corinna B Taklon liner brush) and a powder eyeshadow that matches your eyeliner pencil – dark brown shadow with dark brown pencil / black shadow with black pencil etc

firstly set the pencil with shadow to stop it moving and disappearing as the day/night wears on, then secondly using feathering motions, buff through the pencil and soften out that line.
Tipping the angled liner brush on its side, slide it under your lower lashes, and buff a soft smudgy line, accenting your lower lashes. (I prefer not to use pencil under the eye as it doesn’t have much staying power and can look too severe)

5. Top it off with a couple of coats of mascara.
