Eyeliner pencils tend to be more forgiving and have more options. With a pencil you will need to sharpen it as needed, but you have more control. Even if you do mess up you can blend it for a different look.
Eyebrows and Under Eyes
Eyebrow liner comes in a variety of colors so you can find one that matches you eyebrows. Shaped eyebrows help accentuate the eyes. Brushing your brows and then plucking any strays will create a clean look. You can then use the eyebrow liner to fill in where needed. Make sure not to neglect the skin under your eyes. Dark circles will draw attention, but usually not the kind we want. Make sure you get enough sleep and water to help prevent the circles, but if this doesn't help you may want to use an under eye concealer to help.
