The Best Eyeliners Depend on Personal Preference

Eyeliner helps to define the shape of your eyes and accentuate your eye color. It is meant to enhance the natural beauty of your eyes, not detract from them, so you want to make sure you choose a type that your feel comfortable applying.

Pencil eye liner is the most commonly used liner because it is simple to control, comes in a wide range of colors, and is easy to find in any brand of makeup. Prestige Kohl eyeliner pencil is long-lasting and is available in black, charcoal, chocolate, sable, disco and storm. Prestige Waterproof Eyeliner is a favorite among makeup artists, providing the softest application with long-lasting wear. Be sure to keep pencils sharpened to produce a crisp clean line.

Liquid eyeliner gives a more dramatic and intense look, but is also more difficult to apply. The well-defined line produced with this type of eyeliner makes eye lashes look thicker, and is great for drawing cat eyes. When applying, first blot the brush with a tissue to remove excess product. Then line in three sections, starting with the inner eye, moving to the middle, and finishing at the outer upper lash line. The best liquid eyeliner is really the one you’re most comfortable applying. Try Longcils Boncza Liquid Eyeliner; it provides a bold look that lasts all day.

Gel eyeliner is very creamy and easy to smudge along the lash line. Once used mostly by professional makeup artists, it is becoming more common with the average woman. This liner comes in a pot to be applied with a brush, and takes a little longer to dry. With its rich hypoallergenic formula that glides on effortlessly, Napoleon Perdis China Doll Eyeliner is a great one to try. It can also double as a brow shaper.

In a pinch, eye shadow can be used in place of eyeliner for a subtle daytime look. You will need a stiff angled brush or a pencil brush for application. Simply dip your brush into the eye shadow and draw or smudge along the lash line. Do not use this method on the waterline as it will irritate eyes, and will not stick anyway.

When applying any type of eyeliner, apply it as close to your lash line as possible. Resting your elbow on a countertop can help steady your hand to ensure the most accurate application. Remember, practice makes perfect.

Comments about Maybelline Define-A-Line Eyeliner, 102 Bronze Savvy:
I have been looking for the Bronze Savvy eyeliner for some time to replace the eyeliner that I had found tucked away and started to use again. It is a perfect color for my fair complexion and light green eyes. It gives definition without being too dark like black and dark brown can be. It goes on smooth and creamy without tugging or skipping and can be applied in a subtle smudge or a heavier line. It lasts all day and I've never had it run. I have not tried the other colors of this product.

This eyeliner goes on so easily! No pulling of the eyelid skin and not so sharp that it hurts. Stays on all day and evening, including the bottom line. The colour is terrific as well! Can't say enough good things about this liner!
