Every single day I end up with eyeliner smudged under my left eye, never my right eye. As far as I know i put it on the same way on both eyes and I use equal amounts.

What can I do?

Put some powder on it after you have applied.

I get this too, but I have a wonky face.

On my eye? Or underneath? I don't usually use powder.

Maybe my face is wonky?!

Are you sure its not your mascara coming off and smudging a little bit? Do you wear eyeliner under your eye?

It might be mascara?

I wear 2 eyeshadow shades, then liner on the top lid, then mascara. The liner and mascara is black.

Is your eye slightly weepy on one side? Damaged tear dut? Or do you have a habit of rubbing one eye?

I think it sounds like mascara. I get it on my left eye only. I don't know why, can only assume my lashes touch my face more on that side! A waterproof mascara might help.
