You’ve learned the art of contouring and mastered the smokey eye. But if there’s one thing that requires superpowers to perfect is the winged liner. I mean, what are the chances that you’ll get even looking wings of both sides in the first attempt? Don’t even bother answering.

Buuuut, not anymore. We’ve got super simple tips that’ll help you nail the eyeliner application in the first attempt itself. Yes, really!

The first thing you need to fix is the pigment of your eyeliner. When you use an eyeliner that does not have a precise tip or enough pigment, no matter how hard you try, your eyeliner will look patchy and streaky. Therefore, use an eyeliner such as the Lakme Absolute Shine Line Liquid Eyeliner, which has a precise tip and amazing pigment to deliver great results.

If you are an eyeliner noob, crooked lines are a real problem. But don’t worry, because we have got the perfect solution for you. Sit down at a table, and let your elbows rest properly on it.

Your eyeliner doesn’t always have to be perfect in the very first go. It is okay to create a messy line because you can always correct it with a q-tip dipped in micellar water or cleanser.
