I love eyeliner, BUT I can never do it right

Okay, so here it goes.  I'm hoping someone will give me the tip that basically cinches it for me.  I want to be able to use liquid eye liner, but my damn eyelid wiggles and twitches and lets just say it ends up being a huge mess. So I gave up although I LOVE how it looks.  

So here goes, I wear glasses.  

Also do I put eyeliner on before or after eyeshadow?

I'm not big on makeup, but I feel like dabbling again because I gave up after sucking at eyeliner.  

I am talking about eyeliner on the top lid, above the lashes.

Put it on after the eyeshadow in my opinion, especially if you wiggle a lot. The eyeliner will soak in more quickly to the eyeshadow and have less chance to smudge. Have you ever tried the spoon or card method? I haven't but Ive seen it done. You hold a spoon or credit card up there to make the line and then even if you wiggle it will stay where its supposed to. Try checking tutorials on YouTube

Spoon and credit card method, will look it up and thanks for responding about it might be easier to do it after eyeshadow.

I have l'oreal telescopic liquid liner, but it's old, would that be why it flakes or do you find it does regardless of age.

This means it's too old. Never wear old eye makeup in cream or wet textures (mascara or liquid liners for example). You'll be able to tell if they're too old because they will flake and smell "off". You can get an eye infection. Don't risk it.
Also, on all cosmetics you will see a jar icon with a number next to it. Example 6. This means the product needs to be replaced six months after opening for best results.
