Eyeliner is hands down one of the hardest beauty skills to master. Despite how best one tries to fix it, things somehow still end up wobbly or uneven.
So when we heard about this bizarre trick that professional makeup artists use to apply their own liner, we decided to get closer and grab it for our readers. And guess what? It works better than anything else we’ve ever tried.
For you to do this trick very well, you just have to relax and be more careful and focused. Meanwhile let’s give you steps to follow so it will be easier.
What you need: Your favorite eyeliner and a compact mirror.
What you do: Place the mirror on top of a steady surface that’s lower than you (like a desk) and look down to see where you want to draw your line. This will give you a tighter line and ensure that there aren’t any telltale gaps. Now here’s the trick: Clench your toes (really) and swipe on liner as you normally would.
Why it works: Perhaps it’s in our minds, but there’s something about clenching our toes that steadies the rest of us, namely our hands. Some things can’t be explained, but the results—sleek, even lines on both sides—speak for themselves.
Just try it out and record the result.
