These are my picks for the best eye liners on the market. My tried and true go to's are the 24/7 Glide On pencils by Urban Decay. They are smooth as butter, creamy, forever-lasting, award-winning and waterproof! They come in lush tropical hues, deep metallics, and unusually vibrant neutrals. They take about 30 seconds to set and last all day. They were created with 50% moisturizing ingredients suspended in a waterproof formula with Jojoba Oil, Vitamin E and Cottonseed Oil.
Recently, I've been using a rich brown shade for everyday use. You can't go wrong with Smashbox's Sumatra - Brown. It's a winner of the Allure Best of Beauty 2013 Award for Best Brown Shade. This waterproof kohl eyeliner glides on and self-sharpens every time you twist the cap off. Inspired by Smashbox pros who sharpen before every use on set, this first-of-its-kind pencil has a sharpener built right into the cap for a perfect tip-so you'll always get a precise line. It can be used on inner rim and is waterproof and non-flaking. It's a sure thing!
Tarte's Lights, Camera, Lashes Precision Longwear Liner is great for adding drama. It has a thin, flexible tip which glides across the lid in one swipe. You can easily create a signature cat eye look or add fullness to your lashes. It features a long lasting 12-hour wear.
Finally, for creating a smokey eye, my go to is Kajal Eye Liner by Stilla in Onyx Black. These richly hued pencils are formulated to mimic the ultra-soft texture of the Indian eye darkener of the same name. The pecil glides on perfectly, without dragging across the fragile skin of the eye area. The color is bold and easily blends to create that signature smokey eye look.
