Temptalia’s Tips

  1. The applicator is important!  My preference is for a very thin, angled brush (I like MAC’s 208)  The thinner brush allows me to do both thin and thicker lines.
  2. Look up to see how close the eyeliner is to your lash line, because ultimately, you want to the eyeliner to get between the lashes, too, for a very solid, crisp line.
  3. If your hands are unsteady, try stabilizing yourself by resting your elbow on a flat surface.
