One particular day as I was walking out of my favorite fitness class the uber fabulous instructor Rachel (@ Crunch gym, she’s awesome!!) stopped me to ask about my favorite eye liners. While we were talking two women joined in to hear m pics and just chime in with the fun girly talk. After I gave my advice Rachel suggested thatI should write a blog post with my pics. So there was the inspiration for this latest entry. It wouldn’t be right if I didn’t give Rachel the proper credit : )
To get to the nitty gritty we all know that every girl loves black eyeliner whether it is used for a subtle, sexy effect or a dramatic,intense statement. Let’s be honest, you can never have too many in your arsenal. As makeup artists, we love our waterproof products. So, we will start with the liners that will remain through blood, sweat & tears.
First on our list is this classic Cream Liner from Make Up For Ever. We love this product because it has a wonderful creamy consistency that goes on like buddah (butter but cooler) & stays put until you wash it away. It’s also very pigmented so you will get the rich blackyou are looking for. It is very user friendly & I also love using as an eye shadow to get that perfect ultra black and uber sexy smokey eye.
Another great liner to have in your bag is this24/7Glide on eye pencil from Urban Decay. It is super easy to use. This is great option is you have allergies or tear up a lot because you can throw it in your pursemake touch ups when needed.
Another great option is Stila’s Stay All Day liquid eye liner. The felt tip makes it easy as pie to apply & it will last all day. It also comes in some beautiful, rich colors that you should try
Calligraphy Liquid Eye Liner by Hourglass is a guilty pleasure worth the indulgence. The refined felt-tip creates striking, definedeyes without tugging on the eye lid. This formula dries quickly to prevent transfer, offers all-day staying power & is enriched with soothing botanical extracts.
Stila Smudge Stick Eye Liner in Stingray is a wonderful addition to any makeup bag. A color-rich, vibrant, easy-to-use line with staying power is always a good thing.
Sephora Collection Long-lasting 12 Hour Liquid Liner is a liner that is ultra-pigmented to create strong, beautiful lines. The brush’s flocked tip is incredibly easy to use, allowing you to draw a line of color that’s precise, consistent, and intense—all in a single step.
Wet n wild Waterproof Mega Liner is a steal at $2.99. The brush is simple to use & can easilymake a thin, dainty line or a thick, intense cat eye. It also comes in some bright colors, which are a pleasure to play with for such a low price.
I love Mac products and we all know that they make quality makeup. Their Smolder eye pencil is no different. It glides on smoothly & is easily smudgeable. Perfect for that slept-in, rocker look.
This liner is a bit pricey, but totally worth the money. It is luxurious & feels like velvet on your eyes. It will have you asking, “What is that velvet?” (Shout out to Coming to America).
