Eyeliners – Pencil vs Liquid vs Gel
For a natural look, a pencil eyeliner is the best option. Pencil eyeliner available in countless colors and textures and it’s remotely easy to use.This is a basic bag staple, and is especially good for beginners. It is easy to smudge for a sultry sexy look but doesn’t necessarily last all day. You need to be sharpened regularly. Be careful about sharpening the pencil too much.
These are great for giving a sharp cat eye look. They are good for drawing clean crisp lines along the upper lashlines, and look fantastic when doing the flick. Liquid liner works great once you’ve developed a steady hand, therefore it may not be suitable for beginners There is very little room for error when using this since the liner dries almost instantly and it’s a quite difficult to fix once it’s on your lids. This type applies much more smoothly than pencil and gel. Liquid liner usually long-lasting, therefore it may be harder to remove.

Gel liners have a better staying (waterproof) power than pencil eyeliners and are pretty easy to apply. They come in large range of colors. It’s also easier to adjust thickness of your eyeliner depending on the brush you use. It not only blends in smoothly, but it’s thick enough to make your eyes pop. Gel eyeliners are also extremely flexible; you can apply it heavily with ease or you can smear it a little. Gel liner can be used also as an eyeshadow.
