Liquid liner can always be spotted on the runway and red carpet
Whether it’s worn thin, thick, flicked or as a simple lash-hugging line; each season liquid liner can always be spotted on both the runway and red carpet.
At this stage though, there are so many formulas out there that it can be a bit of a minefield for anyone wanting to recreate the looks of their favourite celebs or trends.
Using a brush and potted gel liner requires a steady hand, as does really wet, liquid liner but one method that makes application simple and fuss free is a classic felt pen liner.
Not sure which one’s for you? Here are my top five picks:
- Shiseido Quickliner
A staple in my own personal makeup bag. This can be manipulated to give a sheer colour or solid block thanks to the click mechanism, which ensures that only the right amount of liquid is used and stops the pen from drying out.
- Chantecaille Le Stylo Eyeliner Pen
My top pick for anyone who loves fine lines and details, this gorgeous liner pen glides on smoothly and lasts all day
- NYX The Curve Eyeliner
Application is made really easy as this clever liner is curved to fit the shape of your hand, perfect for anyone who worries about hand wobbles.
- Marc Jacobs Marc’er Precision pen
I picked one of these up in Sephora in America and was so sad the day it finally ran out… Long-wearing, fade-resistant, solid colour and an easy to use nib make it one of my top picks.
- Kevyn Aucoin Precision Liquid Liner
Waterproof colour that doesn’t bleed or smudge, plus an ultra-fine tip make this one of the best in the business – what else would you expect from one of the beauty world’s biggest icons?
