Guys, is eyeliner a must on a girl?
If so, what kind do you like? The heavier black or maybe a natural brown? Or the slightly smokey eyshadow?
I don't wear eyeliner because I don't think I wear it that well. And I try to put it on like they show in make-up vids on YouTube. But it still doesn't look right. I even get it close to the eyelashes and everything! Any tips on how to get it right?

Guys really don't care what eyeliner you use. :)
The right eyeliner depends on what skin tone you have and also it depends on what shape of eye you have. Personally, I don't wear eyeliner that often, but if I do I always apply it with a flat tip eyeliner brush (I buy gel liner stuff from MAC, it's pretty neat and kindof a mix between a liquid liner and a powder). It makes the line much softer and natural looking. Also, since my eyes are smaller and my lid isn't that large I only apply the liner on the upper lash line. If I put it on the lower my eyes end up looking smaller than they are.
Eyeliner is so tricky and it takes a long time to figure out what the right color and application style is right for you.
If you do end up using an eye pencil try gently rubbing over it with a q-tip after application, it softens the line and ends up making it look very natural.
One more tip is if you just can't seem to get the eyeliner thing down try using a dark eyeshadow and a flat eyeliner brush. Just dampen the brush (not wet, just damp) and dab it in the dark eyeshadow (brown works best) then apply it in little strokes to your upper lash line and softly on your lower lash line (if you want). This gives a smokey eye look.
Oh, and whatever you do don't apply too much eyeliner. It ends up looking like you're getting ready for halloween.
Hope this helps! Good luck :)0
