There are TONS of eyeliners out there- gels, pencils, liquids, waterproof and who knows what else! Each liner can be used to achieve a different look, finish, staying power, etc. Need help de-coding the world of eyeliner? Here are my top picks in each category and price point.
Liquid usually dries to a matte finish and my favorites have a felt tip applicator to help create a winged look that anyone can achieve.
Stila Stay All Day Waterproof Liquid Liner $20
L'Oreal Lineur Intense Brush Tip Liquid Eyeliner $9
Gel dries to a darker, inky finish and when applied with a an angled or skinny brush can be used to create any look- winged, cat eye, double wing, straight- whatever your heart desires!
MAC Fluidline Gel Liner $16
Maybelline Eye Studio Lasting Drama Gel Eyeliner $10
Pencils are the classic liner choice and come in tons of colors and finishes. The advantage over any other liner is the smudge factor, ideal for the perfect smoky eye.
