Love Your Liner

There are so many different types of eyeliner with each one offering an entirely different result. Jet-black felt tips are second-to-none when it comes to crafting a cat-eye flick, while nothing beats a gel for formidable staying power. There’s no reason to stop at black, either – now, there’s a whole spectrum of liner shades to choose from. Try a deep navy or emerald for a modern twist on glamour, or experiment with the brightening powers of a soft beige shade.

Bobbi Brown’s original gel liner

Bobbi Brown’s

Bobbi Brown’s original gel liner is the best when it comes to jet-black pigment and astounding staying power. If you find liquids often imprint onto your upper lids, give this a go instead – once it’s on, it’s really on. As for application, the brand’s firm, stubby eyeliner brush is a perfect match

Chanel’s classic eyeliner pencil


Chanel’s classic eyeliner pencils tick so many boxes. They're waterproof and extremely long-wearing, come housed in a practical twist-up case, and are available in a spectrum of rich, metallic colours. Try thickening your line from the centre of your iris out, creating a soft cat-eye effect.

Shiseido’s smart liner


A cat-eye flick is fiddly enough to undo the most accomplished of make-up artists, but Shiseido’s smart liner makes things easier. The short, tapered nib sits on an angle, making it easier to reach into your lash line and angle out into a sharp point. One swipe is enough to deliver an opaque black line, and it’ll withstand smudging on the oiliest of eyelids.

Charlotte Tilbury’s latest collection includes a bold liner designed to complement every eye colour, including a rich emerald for hazel eyes, and a copper for green eyes. Each one is double-ended, so you can switch between a metallic and matte finish (or blend both together for a multi-faceted effect).
