STEP 1 – DRAW WITH EYES WIDE OPEN
Draw the guide line from 1/3 of the inner eyelid with the eye open.
If you draw the guide lines with your eyes open, you can easily find out the right spot for the eyeliner and the amount of thickness and height of the line required.
STEP 2 – INNER EYE CORNER
Close the eyes 90% and draw the eye lines clearly as a guide and then fill out the blank areas. This helps your eyes open up by drawing a thick line in the inner corner.
STEP 3 – NOW TOWARDS THE MIDDLE
Draw thinner lines as you get close to the pupil of the eyes.
If you draw thinner lines right above the pupil, it will create wide open and 3D looking eyes with the round eye shape.
STEP 4 – LASH LINES (CAUTION: Don’t poke yourself here)
Apply carefully on the lash lines to make the eyes more defined.
STEP 5 – FINISHING THE LINE
Draw the end of the eyes while your eyes are wide open, and draw the eye line parallel to the eye pupil.
STEP 6 – FINESSE
Close the eyes softly, and fill out the blank areas one more time and clear up the eye lines.
Draw a little bit thicker on the end of the eyes to create depth.
STEP 7 – CLEAN LINES
Finish the end of the eye lines sharply by using a flattened cotton swab.
