Practice is the only way to improve them. It's kind of like eating right and exercising to stay healthy. Just keep at it and save some of your early wonky ones and pull them out every once in a while to compare them.

Buy a pack of cheap tips, read the above links and practice practice practice!!!

I used to just hold the tips but some people stick them to the end of pencils with bluetack!

You will get it one day, but it does take time to get the perfect smile :green:

Not sure if the above links mention this or not but try and work the white in a shape of a 'V' if that makes sence... Don't worry It wont go in a shape of a 'V' it will just go like a nice smile. It also might be your brush angle.

It took me a long time to do good smile lines, but I have to say, the more you do (as horrid as it seems when its so difficult), the better they get . . . in the end. Now it seems easy. A client recently requested a really straight smile line and I really had to concentrate to NOT make a smile lol!

You'll be fine, good luck x

do your smiles on old or cheap tips, not on a flat piece of paper (laminated) the bead will react differently on flat laminate than it does on a curved tip, if you can practice on tips.
