These eyeliners (from gel to pencil types) help to define your peepers without leaving any messy smudges even after a long day (you really don’t want to end up looking like a panda, right?). But if you plan to be out in the sun, apply an eyeshadow base beforehand to ensure your makeup stays in place.
Eyeliner, $32, from Kat Von D
Not only is it super pigmented, this comes with a waterproof formula that stays put all day without fading or melting off. The superfine and flexible brush tip glides across the lash line like a breeze and reportedly does not fray even after using it multiple times.
Eyeliner, $35, from Urban Decay
The ultra-fine tip glides on easily for an effortless application. It also features a cartridge system that allows for a constant flow of ink and a formula that dries down quickly and lasts all day (no smudging, running or feathering).
Eyeliner, $16.90, from Heroine Make
With a water and smudge-proof formula, this features a smooth gliding tip that does not tug around the delicate eye area for smooth and easy application. It is also made with hyaluronic acid, collagen, panthenol and chamomile to hydrate, soothe and calm irritation.
Eyeliner, $58, from Shu Uemura
This has a waterproof and sweat-proof formula that dries quickly on the skin and is said to last for up to 18 hours.
Eyeliner, $56, from Tom Ford
This sleek, propel-and-repel mechanical eye pencil delivers high intensity colour in one precise stroke. The long-wearing formula gives an extremely smooth glide for easy application.
Eyeliner, $36, from Estee Lauder
The rich, intensely saturated formula glides smoothly onto lids without tugging. It is exceptionally long-wearing, promising 24-hour wear. The water and weatherproof formula is also smudge, transfer, exercise, sweat and humidity resistant.
Eyeliner, $37, from Dior
The gel-textured liner has a beveled tip to allow you to use it both horizontally and vertically. When held horizontally, it creates a thin, precise line that hugs the curve of your lid. Used vertically, it creates a think, bold line that’s great for creating cat eyes. The retractable tip doesn’t need any sharpening and gives the easy application of a pencil with the colour intensity and glide of a liquid liner.
Eyeliner, $45, from YSL Beaute
This has a calligraphy-inspired tip and water-based formula that glides on smoothly for easy application. It supposedly gives 12-hour wear and has a water-resistant formula that doesn’t flake.
Eyeliner, $60, from By Terry
A waterproof liquid eyeliner, it has a felt tip with gentle aqua-emulsion ink that can create both fine or diagonal lines. It also has carbon black pigmented microparticles to give high-impact, deep and luminous colour.
Eyeliner, $55, from Burberry
This has an ultra-fine applicator tip that glides on evenly. Its deep, intense colour is enriched with carbon black for customisable line definition and accurate application.
Eyeliner, $36, from NARS
This long-wearing eyeliner glides on smoothly and evenly, and gives long-lasting 12-hour wear with no smearing or caking.
Eyeliner, $18, from NYX
This sleek eyeliner has a micro-fine felt tip, making it extremely easy to fill in your lash line or creating the cat-eye look.
