There’s nothing better than getting the perfect sharp eye-liner flick – Taylor Swift has even sung about it!
But it can be hard to get the perfect crisp look when using a waterproof liner or brush: if your hand wobbles slightly you immediately end up with a messy or smudgy wing.

There are a million tricks supposed to help, involving everything from applying sellotapeto your eye to using an eyelash curler to simply print liner on to your top lid.
But one canny Instagramer might just have come up with the easiest hack yet – and you’ll likely have everything you need in your make-up bag already.
Karol Resende is a Brazilian beauty influencer who regularly wows her 920k followers with make-up hacks, product reviews and quick tutorials.
And in a recent video that racked up more than 400k likes, she showed her nifty trick for ensuring her eyeliner always looks on point.
All you need is a pair or tweezers and a black pencil, the make-up maestro disclosed in the comments.
Simply take your liner and coat the sharp end of the tweezers, before very carefully using it to stamp the inside of your eye to create a perfect cat-like effect.
Next, you want to do the same on the outer-eye, using the tweezers edge to stamp a perfectly positioned flick slanting upwards.
Carefully connect the two using the pencil, and voilà – flawless looking eye make-up everytime.
Karol demonstrated the time-saving tip, while lip-syncing along to the viral sound: “Nobody’s gonna know.”
Plenty of viewers were impressed with the simple trick, sharing their appreciation in the comments.
“I’m going to try,” one wrote. “Loved it.”
Another added: “Genius! It turned out just perfect.”
But not everybody was so convinced, with some concerned about the potential hazards involved with using the sharp tool on your waterline.
“There would be failure along with blood if I tried this thank you,” one joked.
“Would automatically pluck a piece of my eye out,” another laughed.
If you’re looking for a less risky way of perfecting your swoops, influencer @FroArtistry recently showed off a creative trick using a hair grip to perfect your placement.
Another fan swears by using a £2 Mascara Eyelash Shield Applicator Guard Tool from Amazon to get those flicks looking flawless.
