Eyeliners are one of those things we all have in our make-up bags but use in totally different ways - and often we're not all that happy with the result.
We've rounded up the 10 best liquid eyeliners, pencils and gel formulas so you can find the perfect one to suit your needs.
An eyeliner can be the product that's missing in your eye make-up routine to give you that natural wide-eyed look. Many brands have released products tailored to getting that seriously close, precise definition which are taking the industry by storm, including Clarins' 3-Dot Liner and Benefit's They're Real Push-Up Liner, but the classic pencil can be just as effective.
They don’t have to be expensive either. There’s plenty of high street brands which are industry and team favourites including Rimmel eyeliner, one of the best liquid products we’ve used – ever, and Urban Decay’s easy-to-apply pencil eyeliner.
Not only are these long-wearing liners suited to our busy lives, but the applicators allow for an easy application on-the-go. Chanel's Stylo Yeux is seriously-practical, with a retractable nib and an attached sharpener, and more budget-friendly buys, like L'Oreal's Super Liner, do, too. Don't write off a gel eyeliner though, just because it requires an eyeliner brush. It's surprisingly easy and forgiving to put on, even when done in a hurry.
But, how to do eyeliner? Find out how to apply eyeliner and get some handy eyeliner tips with our step-by-step video.
For SS15, it’s not about subtle lines. The clear message from the catwalks was go big; from decorative lines at Givenchy to ‘super exaggerated couture wings’ at Prada. Make-up artist Pat McGrath explained she was giving the classic flicks a modern trust by taking them higher.
