Step-by-Step: Thick Eyeliner

With lots of tutorials on how to apply regular eyeliner, you’ve probably become a pro at the basics! So, if you want to take your skills to the next level, check out this guide. It will show you how to create a thick liner that’s jet black and super bold!

1. EYE PENCIL
Start by applying black eye pencil to your upper lash line. It creates the appearance of a thick lash line.

2. CAT FLICK
Now, using a liquid eye pen, draw a line from the outer corner of your eye. The line should be drawn upwards at an angle. If it’s easier, start above your eye and draw the line down towards your eye instead.

3. V-SHAPE
Create a half triangle, or and diagonal V-shape, connecting the top of your flick with a new angled line. Then continue drawing the line around the crease of your eye.

4. FILL IN
Fill in the shape using the same liquid eye pen. Make sure you layer enough product, so that the colour is smooth and saturated.

5. MASCARA
Apply mascara to make your look even more intense.

6. CONCEAL
Did your eyeliner smudge a bit when you created it? No worries! Dip a makeup brush in concealer and use it to erase any smudges and to create a perfectly straight shape.

Voilà! You’ve mastered the thick eyeliner look!
