At first sight, liquid eye liner can be rather intimidating. It is however not as difficult to apply as it may seem, and with Winged Eyeliner being the trend of the season, it is definitely worth a try.

Follow these simple steps and you shall be well on your way to eyeliner prowess.

Step 1: Do your eye make-up, followed by your eyeliner. Eyeliner should be applied after eye shadow, but before mascara.

Step 2: Pulling slightly on the outside of your eye, trace out where you would like your eyeliner to sit. If you are not too sure about yourself, you could use a brown eye pencil for this.

Step 3: Working from the outside in, fill out the traced area with a black liquid liner, working it as close to the lash line as possible, and working it thinner and thinner as you get to the centre of your eye until it eventually disappears.

Step 4: Fill out the bottom eyelid with black kohl eye pencil – or black liquid liner for the more daring – and ensure it flawlessly joins your winged eye at the outermost edge of your eyes.

Step 5: Top this off with two coats of black mascara on your upper and lower lids to complete the look.
