Eyelashes step-by-step drawing guide below

Step 1

Hair Direction Planning Figure out the angle of your eye so you can apply the right amount of curling agent to each lash line. Using the pointed H pencil, lightly draw the front, side, and/or 3/4 lash forward. Then use your mechanical 4B pencil to go through those strokes with a much darker value. Remember that the lower lashes are much thinner and therefore lighter than the top lashes. In the next few steps we will paint all the other lashes. This is going to be so much fun!!

Step 2

Fill in lashes in sections It’s up to you where you start. I’m going from left to right. Note: Use a clean sheet of paper to place under your hand so you don’t get your drawing dirty. We need these lashes to look nice and sharp! Use your H pencil to draw light lashes so you can use them as a general rule. What we want to do here is that we want to draw the lashes moving from the opposite lash or 3/4 of the eyelash towards the front. It doesn’t have to be a perfect transition – the randomness will make it look more realistic.

Step 3

Add unique lashes Continue drawing more lashes. Make some of them overlap and play around the length. Drawing lashes of equal length will look fake.

Step 4

Spread the lashes out. Spread those lashes out evenly. It looks sparse now, but don’t worry about it. We will fill in the gaps later! For now, focus on the overall shape you’re creating for your eyes by adjusting the length/elevation of each lash. My lashes follow the general shape of the upper eyelid crease. I like the shape they have now. So I’ll leave it at that and move on to the next step.

Step 5

Introducing a new layer Eyelashes don’t just grow in a boring row. On the upper eyelid, I’m adding an additional lash below the lash line I just drew. Layering will make the drawing look more detailed and realistic.

Step 6

Add random lashes Have a good time?! I’m! This part looks complicated, but all I did was add additional hairs in addition to the existing lashes. Some strokes are more curved, others can be super thin and barely noticeable (drawn with a sharp HB pencil to maintain their luminosity).

Step 7

Add some shadow If you’re satisfied with the amount of lashes you’ve drawn, it’s time to shade. Why? Because eyelashes of course have shine! I shaded the skin behind the upper lash line, the skin below the lower lash line, the right side of the eyeball, and the right edge of the lower eyelid. I also shaded around the base of each eyelash on the bottom cap to give the surface a more realistic and rough texture.

Step 8

Details! Add some reflection Add some subtle eyelash reflections and we’re done! If you liked this tutorial, share it with your friends using the share buttons below. Did you find this lesson helpful? Let me know which tip has helped you the most. I would love to know!
