I have a 3 fold mirror and one on the table that I usually do my make up. I'll put my elbow down on the table and then just put my hair up. I draw a line under and then on on my eye lid closest to my lashes. are we talking liquid liner or pencil? I usually use liquid and putting my elbow down helps steady my hand to draw the line and I start from the inside and then pull out. When I make the 'wing" I'll go from outside in.
Well,with the liquid liner,I feel you have more options so I would suggest trying that.With liquid,after you've done the basic routine,you can draw little patterns of stars or hearts or whatever you're into on the outer corner.There are really lots of options.As for the smudging thing,that would be more appropriate for a sort-of 'seductive' look,and just the line is more an everyday thing.For the rest of the makeup you should just keep your skin clean and maybe wear some light lip gloss like mormongirlmich said.But on a night out or a party perhaps,if you're daring,you could do a dark brown shadow,smudged eyeliner winged-out slightly,and a dark pink/warm red lipgloss.I think that would look good if you have the confidence to wear it and can pull it off.
