And how do you put eyeliner around where your lashes are? If you skip that area, there are dots of skin color showing between the lashes, but if I try going over the lashes I flinch again, the line is never sharp, and don't even get me started on liquid eyeliner. How do I do this? Man I suck at makeup

Do you have a cosmetic sponge? Like a beauty blender?
If you do, place it gently yet firmly underneath your eye, where your "eye bags" would be to hold that area steady instead of pulling it down, then you can run the (preferably rounded surface) of the eyeliner stick GENTLY against the waterline. To prevent smudging I suggest a waterproof formula. If you are finding that it stings, you may have to consider skin allergies or if that particular formula is right for you. I personally use the Marc Jacobs eyeliner for my waterline and it's wonderful.
Also, to the latter: tight lining. This is basically the reverse waterline, where you put eyeliner on the underside of your top eyelid to blend your lash line evenly.
