    a look like that is best achieved with pencil, not powder!

    I would love to know how people apply eyeliner. I have only been applying to bottom but I don't know where to stop, etc....I am makeup inept!! I use very little eye makeup (mascara) but love the look of the eyeliner and would love to know to apply.

    i just start at the corner and end.. at the end! on the rim of my eye before the edge but after the eyelashes. its hard to explain. i only do bottom too because i can't do the top well! i don't do it very dramatic but lots of people are eyeliner pro's and know a LOT

    To keep mineral eyeliner in place, you really need to use some sort of primer. I use minerals with a primer as eyeliner and it stays all day, but I like a very subtle, slightly smudged look, not the total dark line like in your picture. You probably would be better off using pencils for the look you are trying to achieve.

    try wetting your brush just a tad with the minerals it should stay well and make it easier to apply. Have you tried the creme eyeliners I love thosethey have all colors (mac, bobbi brown)
