Why are you mixing the gel liner with the water? My first recommendation would be to not do that. My second recommendation would be to make sure you're using a good brush. And my third recommendation is, when you apply it, hold your head slightly back, and look down. Dot the liner across the lashline, and then go back and "connect the dots."

Don't dilute it with anything! Get a good liner brush, and you may have to pull your lid taut if it is skipping on you.

I got that tip from Leila (MACGoddess). I used to pull my lid taut, and I still do at times, but I realized I get a much smoother line the other way. Plus, there's no worrying about the bristles catching on my lashes, and I'm basically following the dotted line I created

Dont dilute get eyeliners! And try MAC 266 brush, it is the best eyeliner brush in my opinion. I do pull my lid taut though...
I feel it helps in my case.

I was going to ask the same question about why you were diluting it. LOL

The others have given great advice. I use my 209 brush, it makes a huge difference in the application.
