“Your eyeliner speaks a thousand words” and it’s true! Each different style of best eyeliners is a vibe, the classic feline flick is the glamorous, simple and chic. The thicker eyeliner look is bold, powerful and bossy!. There is even the graphic avant-garde look which is edgy and cool! There are so many shapes and styles and each of them give different feels. We love it!
So eyeliner looks great but when it comes to applying the eyeliner, lets face it – it is really difficult! You need a steady hand! You need patience too. One little wrong movement and bam the shape it out and you accidentally end up with Panda eyes?! Uhhh then you have to rub it all off and start again.

See the pictorial below.
Firstly start with making one dot on the outer corner of the eye. Where you place this first dot is really important, the further the dot the longer the wing. The closer the dot the smaller the wing!
Then make a dot in the centre of the eye.
Then make a final dot in the inner corners of the eyes. You should then end up with three dots in total (see the image below – we have highlighted the dots in red!) Finally to complete the eyeliner, connect these three dots together and fill in the gaps to get the perfect feline flick! Thank you Nafia for making it look so easy and showing us how easy it is to apply eyeliner!

The Best Gel Eyeliner – Best Eyeliners
Gel eyeliners are a little bit trickier to master as you have to use a brush to apply them. Dipping back and forth into the gel eyeliner pot can get a little frustrating. Especially if the gel colour pays off isn’t the best. So we have chosen one where you do not need to do this.
Inglot AMC Eyeliner Gel (77)
One of the best gel eyeliners is this one by Inglot, its extremely pigmented and a tiny amount of product goes a very long way. The pigmentation means that you don’t have to keep dipping back and forth into the pot. You can just take the liner brush and within a few swipes your eyeliner is complete! Another fab point is that the quality of this eyeliner remains as good as new for up to a year. Many gel eyeliners dry up after a few weeks of opening them and this can be so annoying because you have to keep replacing them and expensive too. Having said that this little but mighty pot will last you a very long time.
Please note that you should switch out your eye products specifically eyeliner every 6 months for hygiene reasons or you can sterilise the top section of the eyeliner and keep it for longer by wiping the top layer off with a clean tissue.
The Best eyeliner brushes for the best application
When using a gel eyeliner you definitely need a good quality brush to get the best application. This selection of four brushes is exactly what you need when trialling out different eye liner looks and styles.
This set comes with four brushes easy to use brushes. Starting from left to right. The first one is a brush for creating a fine angled wing. The second flat topped brush is great at creating a thicker more bold eyeliner look. You can also use this brush for shading in your eyeliner if there are thick gaps. The third brush is a flat angled brush perfect to use with your gel products. The final forth brush is ideal for precision and control, use this to get a detailed thin line and a nice flick too. Please note that these brushes can be used interchangeably for different styles, your brushes your wings!

We love this eyeliner as the spherical nib is super easy to use, with just one flick this gives you superior application. The firm tapered tip is very useful as you can really control the amount of product that remains on the nib. This eyeliner is great for creating graphic lines and can also be used on the body! This eye liner is long wearing and also humidity resistant, so if you are likely to be wearing makeup all day and have a busy schedule – then this one is for you.
The Easiest Eyeliner to Apply

After that all you need to do is use the felt tip side to stencil out your line and connect the wing and that’s it as simple as that you will have your eyeliner on in seconds!
