My Favorite Eyeliners

Monday, December 2, 2013

Eyeliner is one of those fabulous makeup products that can completely transform your look with just a simple stroke. I don’t wear eyeliner every day, but when I do wear it I often ask myself why I don’t add it to my regular makeup routine. And maybe I don’t wear it every day because I love the way it looks and want to save the dramatic transformation for special occasions or when I’m feeling really sassy. But no matter what, eyeliner is amazing.

I don’t like just any eyeliner though; I need my eyeliner to just roll right on. Because even though eyeliner can transform your look if applied correctly, if you mess up you basically have to start over! So that is why I need something that smoothes across my eyelids very easily. And I have found two different types that I really like.

If you can believe it, liquid eyeliner tops the list! I remember when I first tried liquid eyeliner, my college roommate told me it was so hard to use (maybe because it dries so quickly and is hard to remove if you mess up?). I however really like it and think it’s the easiest to use. I also really like the eyeliners that are skinny, creamy crayons. Both of these products leave just enough color on your lids with the lightest stroke. I don’t feel like I need to repeatedly trace my lids to get the right amount of eyeliner, just one stroke across my lids does the trick. And it’s helpful that I don’t have to sharpen either of these eyeliners, they both are always ready to go.

Here are my top favorites:

Want to know the best tip I can offer when applying eyeliner? Don’t completely close your eye and while applying pull the outer corner of your eye back towards your temple. This makes the skin very taut and gives you the perfect “canvas” to work with.
