Hi, I'm Simone. I'm a makeup artist, and I'm going to show you how to apply eyeliner to the upper lid. So, the tools we'll need for today are an eyeliner pencil, and also optional if you need it, a smudge brush. So, you're going to take your eyeliner, and you're going to start at the corner of the eye, and you're just going to follow the lash line as close as you can to the lash line, and once you get to the end of the lash line, you're going to create a slight lean and make it go up, just so you create more of an upward illusion with your eyes. Then, if you want to create more of a blur in the line, you can take your smudge brush and just smudge it out a little. That will create a warmer, less severe look. And that's how you apply eyeliner to your upper lid. Today, we used an eyeliner pencil and a smudge brush, optionally. Thanks for watching.
