Another week, another top 5 here at What She Did HQ. (or just my bedroom!) This week I’ve been raiding my makeup collection for my 5 favourite Liquid eyeliners. If you’re anything like me, getting that perfect cat eye flick can be a pain and you know the struggle is real! When you’re in the makeup Isle it’s hard to know where to begin, so here’s my faves to point you in the right direction!
Best for beginners – No7 Stay Precise Felt tip liner
This No7 is the perfect starter liquid liner. It’s thin felt tip brush means that you can basically just angle the brush on your eye and wiggle and you’ve got the perfect cat flick. I got this around Christmas time and since then I’ve used it to practice my flick none stop. It also has a really nice thin tip which makes it a great liner for tight lining too. The liner is available from boots in black or brown for £8.
Best for Long wear – Seventeen Tattoo me 48hr liner
Personally I can’t see the need for a 48hr eyeliner, because we all know us beauty bloggers and beauty buffs alike definitely, always take our makeup off perfectly before we go to sleep, right? But the beauties over at seventeen bring us this little gem for those long days and sweaty club nights so you don’t have to worry about the dreaded panda eye. The application of this product can be a little sticky, so you may need to clean the brush prior to each use to keep it slick, but once it’s on, this little baby ain’t going no where! Available at boots for £4.99
Best on a budget – L’oreal Paris Super Liner
At only £7.99 I feel this is the best value for money out of all the liners. It compares to some of the higher end eyeliners I’ve used and offers easy application, a deep black colour, long wear and super precision. The long handle makes it easy to hold whilst you navigate your eye and the thin tip makes this perfect for building up a thin or thick flick. I can’t find this online in drugstores anymore, but it is available online at Amazon.
Best for creative eyes – Rimmel London Scandaleyes Thick & Thin Eyeliner
Every now and again I like to get a bit creative with eye liner and go for something a bit different. This drugstore eyeliner has the perfect multifunctional tip so that you can go for a fat or thin line. The nib has a hard texture, so it is quite rigid but it makes it perfect for straight angular lines. Price £5.49.
Best all rounder – Eyeko Skinny Liquid Eyeliner
This baby grabs the number one spot. My all time favourite precision eyeliner offers long lasting, easily applied cat flicks. It offers intense colour with a single stroke and helped me to learn the perfect flick. I don’t really have a lot to say about this liner, other than its great and it should be a staple in everyone’s makeup collection. After Perusing Eyeko’s website I’ve just seen there is a new and improved formula, who knew this could get even better. You can get your hands it on from their website at the reasonable price of £12.
See you next week for my top 5 highlighters.
