1.Use a liquid liner because it doesn`t smudge on my Asian eyes. Here are a few suggestions for the best ones:
Low end: 
Maybelline waterproof liquid eyeliner
L'oreal Linear Intense eyeliner
Almay 16 hour liquid eyeliner
Maybelline line stiletto eyeliner
Physician's Formula Eyebooster Eyeliner

High end:
Lancome Artliner
Bobbi Brown gel liner
Mac Blacktrack gel liner

2. Put concealer on your lid to prepare it so that your pencil eyeliner will      adhere to your eyelids better. This will also give the line more intensity.     
3                3. Freeze your eyeliner in the fridge for 10 min before applying. This way, the line you create is crisp     and the eyeliner doesn`t melt on your eyes throughout the day since some eyeliners are made mostly of wax.
4.              4. Dust a bit of powder over your eyes after you finish applying the eyeliner or eye shadow. This will make both the eyeliner and eye shadow stay put forever.
5.              5. After putting on your eyeliner, whether it would be black or brown or any other color, dust a complimentary eye shadow on top. This will give your eyes a subtle smoky look without too much work. I use an angled brush to do this so that the line is precise. For a more smudged and smokey look use a smudger brush. This will also create a gradient and add dimension to your eyes.
6.             6. Spray some refreshing spring water or makeup finishing mist on your face after you finish applying your makeup. Not only will this help make your makeup stay put but your face will look dewy and fresh throughout the day.
7              7. Always pick waterproof or budge-proof eyeliner. Kohl eyeliner looks subtle and natural but they`re only good for the lower lash line or your waterline. Kohl eyeliner is also great for tight lining. For upper lash line however, liquid eyeliner or gel eyeliners stay on better.
8             8. Moisturize before putting on your makeup if you cannot afford a face primer. The stickiness of the moisturizer will make your makeup adhere to your skin. It also doesn`t hurt to stay hydrated.
9.           9. Do not apply very thick layers of eyeliner, the excess will smudge. Apply your eyeliner in two strokes; one from the middle to the outer part of the eye and one from the middle to the inner part of the eye.
10         10. Apply the eyeliner to a clean face with a bit of moisturizer and make sure that your eyes are not oily. The oil glands on the eyelid do produce oil throughout the day so use a blotting paper to blot out the excess oil or your eyeliner will find a way to transfer onto your lid.
