The Ultimate Eyeliner Guide
Right now, eyes are where it's at. Which means you may be experiencing Eyeliner Overload - but no need to get overwhelmed. Figuring out which liner is perfect for a cat eye vs. a smoky eye. vs. a doll eye doesn't have to leave you feeling winged
out (that's another eye look btw.) We're going to outline the right eyeliner for every look out there. (Well, 89% of them anyway.) Consider your eyeliner I.Q. about to be raised.
So Fierce! Chrome Ink Liquid Liner: Metallic Lines for playful flares or winged-looks
How To Use: Glide the pen gently along your lash line or over your lids to create a bold look. Dip the pen in the ink cap if you want to add more color.
So Fierce! Vinyl Eyeliner: Glossy, Lacquered Lines for an extreme graphic effect, or abstract shapes.
How To Use It: Apply to your upper lashes, or lower lashes, or even both if you want to take your look gorgeously over the top. And if you're really looking to line your way into uncharted territory, apply to your upper lash and smudge the lid for a hot take on the new grunge smoky eye look.
ColorStay Eyeliner: Soft, smoky lines, or intense, smoldering lines
How To Use It: Start from the inner corner of your eye and work outward, gliding the pencil slowly right above your lashes for an intense line. Then flip the pencil around and use the smudge tool to diffuse the color upwards on your eyelid for a few seconds before the formula sets. It's up to you how far you want to take it. Just remember-where there's smoke, there's fire.
ColorStay Micro Hyper Precision Gel Eyeliner: Skinner than Skinny Lines or blurred-out lines
How To Use It: Twist the liner until a little bit of color shows at the tip. Glide wherever you want to define your eyes. For a smoky look, flip the liner and use the smudger tool.
Pro Tip: Keep the ultra-fine tip short and be gentle while applying the creamy formula to avoid breaking the tip.
ColorStay Liquid Liner: Ultra-fine or dramatic lines that stay all day
How To Use It: Draw along your lash line for a line result that's on the thin side (if you're afraid of messing up, try dabbing on dots along your upper lashes, then slowly connecting them.) Or, for a thicker line or cat eye look, follow up with a second, shorter line slightly above the first, but only along the last third of your lashes), then color in the empty space.
ColorStay Liquid Eye Pens: Sharp, thick or thin lines for a dramatic result
How To Use It: Simply draw along your lash line for a thin line, or draw a second line above the first (along the last third of your lashes), to get a slightly thicker looking line.
