Beginner Eyeliner Look: Colored Bottom Liner It's easy to wear a statement eyeliner look even if you don't have a steady hand or hours of practice. All you need for this bold eye makeup look is a long-wear pencil eyeliner in a bright color of your choice. Long-wear eyeliners are usually twist-up pencils, so you can't control the sharpness of the tip, which prevents drawing a straight edge. However, unlike kohl pencils, long-wear pencils will give you bold matte color that'll last for hours. (We like Nars Larger Than Life Long-Wear Eyeliner, $23.)
How to apply: Apply the eyeliner to just your lower lashline from the inner to outer corners, using short strokes. To pull it into a cohesive look, you can apply eyeshadow in the same color family to your upper lids, but make it two shades brighter. Break up the bright color by applying a thin black line to your upper lashline and apply mascara.
