I loved Sam's trend video for eyeliner this season. I'm a bit shakey with it but recently I found a very small and fine art brush that makes very small lines, much better for my small lids. Here are the results, bear in mind i purposefully used a crap liner for practice sakes hence it flaked.

Nice job! Loving the look on you.

I was thinking of giving it a try but using a different colour.

Absolutely and as one noob to another there's a few things i've discovered through trial and error.

I like to do a pre-emptive line first with a liner brush and light brown or grey eyeshadow and then line on top of that. This way it is literally painting in the lines that are already there. There isn't a lot of room for error when it comes to liquid liner, so get the shape first and you're set.

In regards to position, use your brush resting against the ege of your nostril and to the corner of your eye. Follow this angle on each side and the ticks should be even (ish).

Also neaten up lines with a wet qtip and set with shadow, dabbed on of course. Maybe even moisten your brush and dab a bit of damp shadow on top for hold.

Recently I discovered that my lines were made more even and hands less shakey by leaning my whole body weight forward onto my arms, and then lining but this might just be a bit of a kooky quirk on my part!

thanks for the tips. =)
I once tried to just colour in my lid with a huge glob of black gel liner and then use qtip to get rid the excess...
failed miserably and i couldnt go out because i couldnt get rid of all the black stuff!
These are sooo helpful.

Haha! Oh sometimes you just got to own makeup mistakes. I ALWAYS mess up Flase lashes. I place them wrong or something then the glue wipes away the liner then they're
uneven and look ridiculous. Pixiwoo are so dainty :'(
