It is also essential to stay as close as possible to the curly eyelashes in order for these to preserve the main amount of eyeliner.

It is also recommended to use a pencil rather than the liquid eyeliner first. The first coat will draw the line and will also add the perfect coverage to preserve the eyeliner.
