It’s the most clique saying ever, but eyes really are the window to one’s soul. If eyes are the windows, then eyeliner is the curtain. That makes sense right? I’ve mentioned before about how I’ve struggled with self confidence about my nose over the years, but that I love my blue peepers.
Today for Makeup Monday I want to share my favourite liners for your stunning eyes. For myself, the most important part of an eyeliner is it has to glide like butter across my lid. Oh and colour payoff! I want it to be vivid, smudgeable, and last allllll day long.
The absolute best eyeliner that fits all of those categories is (in my opinion at least):
Urban Decay’s 24/7 eyeliner! It comes in a multitude of stunning shades from varying degrees of black, to uber vivid blues and purples. Even with my oily skin this liner lasts for ages and ages. This liner is super easy to use for the perfect smokey eye as well; jsut smudge immediately after applying with your finger or a qtip.
On the opposite end of the smudgeable eyeliner spectrum is the winged liner. A quintessential classic, winged liner makes any look instantly more sophisticated and opens your eyes like crazy. The only downside? Getting that perfect winged liner flick can be practically impossible. Enter Buxom’s They’re Real Push Up liner:
This gel liner has a rubber applicator that applies exactly how you want it, in a pigmented black line that is easy to make as thin or as thick as you desire it. Additionally it doesn’t flake, peel, or fade. Give it a try for Audrey Hepburn worthy eyes!
Of course, the real secret to eyeliner that stays all day is how to remove it! After all, it does have to come off at some point. Here’s my secret for easy peasy makeup removal:
This micellaire water doesn’t leave a trace of waterproof makeup, doesn’t leave a film, and doesn’t leave skin dried out! It’s really amazing: all makeup is gone without any alcohol or harsh chemicals. Apparently French women have been using this secret for years, with the fashion world’s desire to be French they must know something about perfection.
