I love liquid liner, but finding the right one can be tricky. You want one that you can create both simple and dramatic looks with, and will last all day. Not too much to ask right?
Personally I think the biggest factor of a great liquid liner is the smudge test. If you’re a contact lenses wearer like me, you’re probably also an eye-itcher. Yep, its a thing. So with eye-itching comes smudging, and whilst smudgy rock chic is cool, big smudgy black eyes are not.
Next up is consistency and intensity. A strong colour is what I’m asking for. A lot of liquid liners can be watery and difficult to create an intense look with.
Finally simplicity is the key. I do love liners like MAC’s FluidLine, but it can be a little tricky to apply, and you need to practice to get a perfect line, and find the perfect brush.
So the winner for me is *drum roll* Eyeko Skinny Liquid Liner. What a gem. This liner is like a felt tip pen, wonderfully fine, easy to apply, smudge proof and intense. Liner is a great addition to any make-up look, and can really make your eyes pop, especially if you are going to be in lots of photos. I wouldn’t really recommend this for lining the lower lashes, but for the upper lashes it’s excellent.
It’s available to buy at Sephora, Harvey Nichols and Selfridges. Did I mention it also comes in 5 wonderful colours, and at £10 your wallet will be winking at your lovely lined lashes.
