The best YouTube tutorials to help you nail your eyeliner

We sat through the bad tutorials so you don't have to.

Everyone who has ever worn eyeliner knows that it's ridiculously hard to get right. We've all had those moments where our eyeliner wings are lop-sided and our lines are way too thick.

So it's no wonder that eyeliner tutorials are one of the most requested makeup videos on YouTube. Viewers everywhere are hungry for any tip or trick that could lead to the perfect wing. There are hundreds of eyeliner tutorials on YouTube each promising "the easiest trick ever", "great for beginners" and "the perfect wing every time". So it's pretty hard to know which one to watch.

We recently sat through more than 50 eyeliner tutorials to narrow down some of the best. And we saw some good ones, some bad ones and some rather confusing ones. So for your YouTube viewing pleasure, here are our favourite and some of the most helpful eyeliner tutorials on YouTube.
