Begin with lining your upper lashes with the use of an angled eyeliner brush. Dip the brush into the eyeliner gel then draw a thin line at the base of the lashline.
Next, starting from the inner corner of the eye to the outer corner, draw a rather thicker line. It should start very thin at the inner corner then gets slightly thicker at you continue to draw to the outermost eyelash.
Paint a thing wing pointing up and out from the outer part of the eye. The tip of the wing should angle up to the end of the eyebrow. Clean up mistakes and curve out a sharp and crisp flick using a pointed cotton swab.
