Make your eye makeup last longer by setting your eyeliner with a matching eye shadow.
First, line your eyes with a pencil liner, and then lightly dust eye shadow in the same shade on top to hold the liner in place.
Make a less pigmented eyeshadow more vibrant by covering your eyelid with a white eyeliner first.
This will help cancel out the color of your skin, creating an even base for the shadow and making the color pop. Create your own custom eyeliner with a wet liner brush and eyeshadow.
The wet brush will darken the pigments a bit and create a sharp look like a liner.
Use white eyeliner as a brow highlighter for an instant eye lift.
Line below and above your eyebrows with a thick white liner, and smudge it out with a sponge brush to define your brows.If getting a perfect line is too challenging, draw a rough line first, and then sharpen it with a cotton swab and petroleum jelly.
Sometimes erasing mistakes is easier than trying to nail it the first time.

---- More DIY Ideas ----
For a really natural look, tightline your liner by applying it in between the lashes instead of across the top of the lash line.
The easiest way to do this is to fill in your top lashes from the underside. This will make your eyelashes look fuller but won’t leave you looking too made up.
For a more precise angle of your winged liner, draw the flick toward your eye instead of away from it.
Drawing in a backward direction will make it easier to determine where the end of the flick will be.Use mascara as eyeliner with a liner brush.
If you don’t have any eyeliner, use some of the product on the brush of a mascara wand to line your eye. Use clear tape as a no-fail cat-eye guide.
Place the edge of the tape in line with your bottom lash line and angle the top toward the end of your eyebrow. Use the edge of a business card to get the perfect flick.
Try tracing the line if freehand drawing is too tricky.
