Hands Down: Best Eyeliners

1 May

I, personally, am a fan of gel eyeliners. Sure, it takes practice, but so does lining your eye with a pencil. My weapon of choice for either liner: MAC’s 266 Small Angle Brush ($19.50 — you’ll only need one, so it’s well worth the money).


[* MAC Fluidline
3 g/0.1 oz. $15.00 – 7 shades to choose from

– extremely creamy, so it’s easy to apply
– not exactly smudge-proof and a primer is definitely required for it to stay put

[* Make Up For Ever Aqua Creamliner
0.14 oz. $20.00 – 6 shades to choose from

– highly pigmented and waterproof
– tends to dry out, so you have to work quickly

    whats the difference with the Gel? im assuming it’s more consistent…? and i had no idea you could “prime” your skin.

    Gel can be applied with a thin brush = more precise lines and control than a blunt/sharp pencil, liquid eyeliner tends to be very watery and takes a while to dry plus you don’t have the option of how much product to put on the brush that has been sitting in the tube.
