Hi, my name is Adrienne; I'm a Makeup Artist. Today, I'm going to be showing you how to apply liquid eyeliner to round shaped eyes. The tools that we'll be using is going to be a black liquid eyeliner. For step one, we're going to take our black liquid eyeliner and apply it to the lash line. So, for this step, I'm going to take my black liquid eyeliner and this eyeliner is specifically a felt-tip pen, it's really easy to apply liquid eyeliner 'cause it's got a very soft point, very bendable point. So, it's just going to follow the natural contour of your eye. And I'm just going to take my time and go in short dash strokes so that I can get a perfect line. You want to make sure that you apply this with your eyes somewhat open so you can get an even line. And with this felt-tip liquid eyeliner pen, it's really easy to create a really thin or a thick line. Now, for round-shaped eyes, to make them look elongated and not so round where they look like a doll, the best thing is to kind of drag the liquid eyeliner a little bit past the eye just to make it a little bit more elongated. So, I've applied my eyeliner on the top lash line; I just need to finish it out here and to elongate it, I'm just going to take my eyeliner and just go a little bit past the eye. So, I'm going to use this hand just to kind of tug it and keep it steady and I want to just take this eyeliner and just start up here and connect it to the rest of the eyeliner. And if you need to go back and repeat that, then do so. And now, we're going to repeat this step on the other eye. Going in short dash strokes, taking the eyeliner, going all the way to the tear duct; take your time. The good thing about liquid eyeliner is that it dries fast. So, you don't have to worry about it staying wet for too long. Now, I'm just going to create a slight wing tip. I'm going to take my finger and kind of keep my eyes steady and kind of tug it a little bit; create a little line and then connect it. And if you feel like your line is a little bit too thick or not in the spot that you wanted to be, then, just take a Q-tip and before it's, the eyeliner dries and sets, just kind of correct it; clean off any excess. If you have to dip that Q-tip in eye makeup remover, then do so. But all I'm doing right now is just kind of going over it one more time. And that's it, that's how you apply liquid eyeliner to round shaped eyes. Thank you for watching.
