Okay, you’ve got your eyeshadow or maybe you’re even using homemade makeup and you’ve learned the insider secret for turning it into and amazing color of eyeliner. The only problem is that you just can’t seem to get the placement to look professional. What’s the solution? Tape. That’s right. Just use the clear tape like you wrap gifts with.
- Take a piece of clear tape about two inches long.
- Lightly place it just under your eye on an upward angle like you see in the photo above.
- Make sure it goes just under the end of your eyebrow.
- Apply your eyeliner product.
- Gently peel off the tape.

If you like this one then you might even prefer to cut a triangle shape from a piece of faux suede cloth and use it instead. It’s one of my favorite methods and it’s gentle on the delicate eye area.

1. A tiny eye makeup or concealer brush that works with other makeup.
2. A professional artist’s brush they purchase from a craft store. (Yes, they do that.)
3. They make a brush work for them by altering it.
Let’s talk about these eyeliner tips. On the first one you know that the brushes that come with your eyeliner are tiny. Some are high end and some aren’t. Some are actually a little thicker. If you want a fine line that thicker brush just isn’t going to work. You need a brush that will keep it’s tip. That’s why some women actually prefer sharpened eyeliner pencils. There’s nothing written that says you have to have a specific brush. Use the one that works for you. If it’s a tiny concealer brush, and it works, use it. Simply wash your brush beforehand.

Okay, you probably know this one already. Just in case you don’t makeup artists love their brushes. Sometimes they buy them from makeup supply stores and sometimes they order them from online stores for artist supplies. There’s no reason you can’t do the same. The main thing is to test the brush. You don’t want one with stiff bristles. It’s simply an alternative.
So your brush still isn’t working. It happens to everyone. Sometimes you need it to be just a little shorter. Maybe you need the tip to be a little thinner. This is what I term the ‘last ditch method.’ It’s what you try before you decide to toss the brush. Try trimming it. It’s simple to do and you might just find it becomes your favorite.
These simple eyeliner tips work really well and they allow you to take your skills to the next level. Maybe you’ll decide to do a fantasy makeup design next.
