The key to the basic eye is to apply with a light hand. The basic eye is all about appearing natural so consider a deep brown liner if you have light hair.

Step 1: Holding the skin of your upper lid taut, trace the upper lashes from the inside of the eye with a pencil or an eyeliner brush dipped in a dark eyeshadow. For a more dramatic look, make the outside line a bit thicker than the inside and extend it just beyond the lash line. Another shape I love is dubbed the "Nike swoosh" by Lucky Magazine -- narrow at inner corners, thicker in the middle and swept up a bit at the outer edge.

Step 2: Once the line is set, trace over it with a liquid liner. Hand unsteady? Keep your elbow on a table.

Step 3: Set liner with an eyeshadow.

Step 4: Apply eyeshadow or an eye pencil to lower lashes. Using an eyeshadow brush, apply a deep-hued eyeshadow along the bottom lashes from the outside in. Unless you have wide-set eyes, don't line the entire lower lid. Instead, stop halfway across. ...more

Try placing a mirror flat on the table since its a lot easier to apply eyeliner looking down.
Try eyeliner pencil instead of liquid eyeliner if youre not that confident with the latter.
Instead of drawing one line over your eye line, you can draw a few dots first and connect them afterwards. Smudge a bit with a brush to smoothen the more jagged edges.
Sharpen your eyeliner pencil before application to make sure its clean. Then rub the tip on the skin of your hand first so it wont be too sharp when you finally apply it.
