    My sister puts hers way above her lashline and I don't like the way that looks at all; I'm okay with getting it down into the lashline from above, but getting the top of the line to be even is impossible.

    I always just wear pencil eyeliner and smudge it until it covers where i want it to cover

    I have the exact same problem with eyeliner, and rarely wear it outside of special occasions because it's so much hassle. Liquid is far too hard to apply, especially on the lower eye, and kohl/pencil just doesn't stay sharp enough for long enough and pausing a makeup routine to sharpen a pencil is a huge pain. And trying to get it even... *shudder*. You may wish to try eyeliner stencils- I know some internet makeup artists have had some success using spoons, too, but I can't vouch for that, as I've never tried it myself.

    Everett local rats so small, so tiny

    I don't know how to makeup or anything but i used to have a dark purple wet n wild lipstick, and now i'm craving some Goth Lipstix for my Weird Non Cohesive Looks(tm)

    I saw some hard candy lipsticks at walmart but idk if theyre smudgey or w/e? And there was some "lip paint" from loreal in a nice navy colour but i didnt buy anything due to indecision

    I should probably just go with Colorpop, they probably have a bunch of dramatic dark colours for a dude who has no clue what to put on their own face

    I think the shape of the eyeliner tip is pretty helpful in keeping consistency and evenness, but a lot of it comes with practice to keep a light, steady hand. I like felt tip eyeliner pens and angled brush tip pens, and gel eyeliners in general with an angled brush.

    Heck yes, finger application of eyeshadow is working much much better! Thanks, everyone. Now I need to practise the eyeliner. I have a gel pot with a tiny angled brush provided but I think the brush is too thick - it's going blobby. I have hooded eyes so I'm not sure how much a stencil would help, I hear that eye shape makes it difficult.

    For gel eyeliners I sort of clean off the excess product and make as sharp as a point I can, and then sort of stamp it in shape before going over again, sort of a connect the dots technique? Maybe it will help not being blobby.

    But yeah, hooded eyes make it a bit harder to eyeline but it's possible!! I have them too and it takes a bit of experimentation to find the best way to line
