I have problems with black eyeliner making me look like a middle aged rebellious teenager. Here is one way I can wear it. I hope this makes sense.
I use a automatic pencil liner because you don't need a fine point. Any pencil will work. If you think of the eye lid as one surface and the area between your lashes and eye (upper water line) as a second surface, you are aiming for the edge where these two surfaces meet. With your eyes open, put liner at the roots of the lases. The pencil will be in front of your lashes. If I'm doing the lower lashes, I do almost the same thing but I put the liner on in a dotted line.
