Liquid eyeliner can be a major hit or miss- a challenge or easy as pie. Like anything in life, it does take some practice to get the hang of it, but the one’s I’m sharing today make it easy to apply the perfect Cleopatra eye from the get go.
The first task is to decide whether you want to go with a paint pot, or with a brush. Both have their merits: the brush is preloaded with the pigment and you basically paint and go, whereas the pot you have more control over the initial amount you apply.
I received the Eyeko liner in a Birchbox forever ago, and since then it’s been my go to liquid liner. It’s really a no brainer to apply, do one quick swipe and your done- and it will not flake (a huge issue with liquid liners!). If you were going to invest in any liquid eyeliner I cannot recommend this one enough!
e.l.f. has certainly made themselves known for uber cheap and effective makeup products. Their $3 cream eyeliner is no exception. The brush is thin and the cream smooth which means no tugging, and a crisp even line. I know I feature NYX a lot; you just can’t go wrong with this brand! (Not to mention, Ulta always has great coupons that NYX is valid for.) The super thin brush of this liner is the perfect length to control the liquid- not so long it bends everywhere and not so short it stabs you in the eye (no fun).
Kevin Aucion was a makeup guru, and left behind a legacy in the cosmetics world. His liner is everything you would expect from his line, and definitely worth every penny in terms of wear and pigment. I love the brush on the L’Oreal pot; it’s amazing and I have yet to find a better one. It’s advertised as 24/7 and it really is (you’re going to want to check out this post to figure out how to get it off!). So this last one by Benefit is a bit different- it has a rubber tip. I won’t lie, it takes some getting used to as it’s so different. The trick is making sure you have enough of the liner on the end before applying in order to get the smoothest line.
Have you tried any of these or does liquid liner scare you? I promise there is one for everyone and it’s a lot easier than it seems!!!
Happy Monday loves. Have a super fantastic week!
