Beauty Blunder 9: Shaky Hands and Eyeliner

Question:  Hi, Sara.  I love the look of eyeliner on my eyes, but every time I try to apply it my hand starts shaking and I can't get a perfect line.  Am I ever going to be able to apply eyeliner, or should I just give up?

Answer:  Don't give up!  I think this issue is easily fixable, and I'm glad you brought it up.  When I need some stability while applying eyeliner, I position my

arm on a flat surface near a mirror.  The support of having something to lean on usually makes it much easier to control my movements.  Then, I can manage a strikingly straight line.  If you try this and your hand continues to shake, try a smudged application by using a small makeup brush to blur the liner and show a smoky, less precision based look.  Thanks!
