Hi, I'm Kelli. I'm an aesthetician and makeup artist at Ulta Salon and Cosmetics, and I'm going to show you the best way to put on eyeliner. We're going to start with just a basic eyeliner pencil, and sometimes the best thing to do for a pencil is just to kind of warm it up to the skin tone. It's going to go on a lot easier. Close your eyes. You want to start right at the base of the lashes, and you're going to just apply it in short, feathery strokes. A lot of times where people run into trouble is they try to draw one straight continuous line across the lash line, and that makes it a lot harder to blend and also gives it a harsher look. And a lot of times, people like to pull it that way to try to smooth it out and put it on. You never want to pull or tug at your eyes. It can lead to a lot of wrinkles and premature aging. You see, like this, like a really nice, smooth line. It's nice and thin. It's not too thick, and it just defines her lash line. Underneath -- if you'll just look up for me -- we're going to connect the outer corner and we're just going to do the same thing underneath. We're just going to do light, feathery strokes all the way across so she just has a nice, thin line defining her eye underneath. You definitely don't want to do too thick underneath because that'll really drag down the eye. So that's the best way to put on eyeliner.
