Different types of eyeliner and their features, including pencil eyeliner, gel eyeliner, and more.

Just when you think you have mastered all the different types of eyeliners, a new one hits the market. If you’re constantly searching online for information on how to use gel eyeliners or apply liquid eyeliners, you’ve come to the right place. In this article, we will explore the various types of eyeliners available and highlight the pros and cons of each so you can make an informed decision on which one is best for you.

1.Eyeliner in pencil form.

Pencil eyeliner is a popular choice among many, and if you’re familiar with using kajal, transitioning to a pencil eyeliner will be a breeze. These eyeliners are easy to apply and perfect for beginners. The creamy texture of a pencil eyeliner allows it to glide smoothly on the lash line and waterline, making it easy to create precise lines.

There are two types of pencil eyeliners available: those that need to be sharpened, and those that are mechanical. The former requires constant sharpening to maintain a sharp point, but the precision and longevity they offer make it a small price to pay. On the other hand, mechanical pencil eyeliners are easy to use, and the product pops out when you twist the tip, but they may not be as precise and sharp as traditional pencil eyeliner.

Overall, pencil eyeliner is a great option for anyone looking for an easy-to-use and long-lasting eyeliner.

2.An eyeliner that is in liquid form.

Ideal for achieving striking and bold aesthetics, liquid eyeliner provides the ultimate precision and allows for the creation of well-defined and thin lines. It is a popular choice for a variety of eyeliner looks, such as winged eyeliner, graphic eyeliner, cat eyes, and Egyptian eyes. While liquid eyeliner can be challenging to master, it is essential to have a steady hand when making delicate strokes. It dries quickly, so it is not recommended for creating soft, smudged eyeliner effects.

The brush tip liquid eyeliner is perfect for drawing ultra-precise lines that will last all day. Most liquid eyeliners come in either a matte or glossy finish, so choose one that complements your overall makeup look. For instance, Maybelline Hyper Glossy Liquid Liner is a smudge-proof formula that offers intense black color and a high-shine finish, staying glossy for up to 24 hours.

3.”An eyeliner in the form of a pen”

If you desire the appearance of a liquid eyeliner but prefer the simplicity of a pencil, then a sketch pen eyeliner is the perfect solution for you. Its fine tip allows for precise line drawing, and its design makes it easy to use even for those who are new to eyeliner application.

Additionally, the felt tip of a sketch pen eyeliner typically features a smudge and smear-proof formula, ensuring a flawless application every time.The long-lasting formula of the Colossal Liner dries quickly, making it one of the best matte black eyeliners for creating ultra-precise, sharp lines.

4.”An eyeliner in the form of a gel”

 Gel eyeliners have a high wax content and are waterproof and budge-proof. By varying the thickness and angle of your eyeliner brush, you can create different eyeliner looks with the gel eyeliner. If you like the look of soft and smudged lines that are not as precise as the ones you would get with a liquid eyeliner, the gel eyeliner is the right choice for you. But just like liquid eyeliner, gel eyeliners too need a very steady hand and some practice before you can start creating intricate looks. 

 For long-lasting smudge proof lines that will stay up to 24 hours, try the Eyestudio Lasting Drama Gel Eyeliner by Maybelline. The waterproof oil-free gel eyeliner glides on smoothly and delivers intense black colour that lasts all day.

5.Eyeshadow as a liner.

Using colourful eyeshadow as eyeliner on your lash line is also a fun (and pocket-friendly!) way of trying out coloured eyeliner without buying a new one every time. Simply pick your favourite eyeshadow shade from any palette, dip an angled brush in the pan, and draw a line across your lash line and there you have it, a coloured eyeliner look without any coloured liner. 

The Maybelline  Palette to create a soft, daytime pink eyeliner look. The downside of shadow liners is that they are not as long-lasting as liquid or gel liners and can easily smudge or fade away.
