Use your instinct, and if you can, some trial and error to realize what kind of liner suits you and is most convenient for you to work with. You may even need different ones to create different looks, it all just depends on what and how you want to use these products.

To apply the perfect liner, just dab your liner along the path you want, and then with connect them to get the classic line.
3. No Tugging
While applying your liner, try not to pull the side of your eye as tempting as it might feel. It extends your skin, and even though it may look like you’re drawing it correctly, the liner will end up looking slanted when you leave it.
