“The eye is the jewel of the body.” – Henry David Thoreau
Various types of eyeliners are available in the market, and the kind you choose will significantly affect the application process and the result. Our article will tell you about the different types and help you choose the one that suits you the best.
The most basic and the easiest one among all liners are the pencil liners. They come either in retractable ones or the ones which you need to sharpen. They are not harsh and effortless to use. They are perfect to use in your lash line and glide quickly and smoothly if your skin is bare. But if your skin is primed, you might have to put it on a couple of more times. Use a brush and smudge it a little for that smokey look!
Liquid eyeliners are great for delicate and precise work, clean lines, and flicks. They mostly come with felt or regular brushes, which you can choose according to your comfort. They also come in different colors and finishes- matte and glossy. The liquid consistency makes it easier to draw clean lines, but it can also be challenging to use for a beginner.
Eyeliner pens work just as well as your liquid liners but are a little more controlled, so they do not flow when applied to the corner of the eyes. They come with a felt tip like a sketch pen, so it is easy for you to play with it and make different graphics on your eyes.
Gel eyeliners are more versatile. They can be very intimidating initially, but once you get the hang, you will enjoy using them. The gel liners can be used with various brushes- thin, thick, angled, etc. They have gel-like consistency and are thicker than liquid liners, and give you an opaque finish. They are versatile to be used on your lash line and waterline of your eyes. Gel liners can create a thick coat over your brush, so make sure to clean them after every use to avoid any eye infection.
