Types Of Liquid Eyeliners

Based on the tip of the applicator, there are two types of liquid eyeliners available in the market: brush-tip liquid eyeliner, and felt-tip liquid eyeliner.

Which is the best liquid eyeliner for you – Felt-Tip or brush-tip?

Brush-tip eyeliners are precise, and sharp, and have matte finish. However they take a lot of time to dry. They also take a lot of practice to get the perfect finish.

Felt-tip eyeliners, which come in pen-like packaging, are perfect for beginners since they’re easier to use. The drawback, though, is that felt-tip eyeliners need to applied 2-3 times to match the intensity of brush-tip eyeliners.

Last Words on Choosing From the Best Liquid Eyeliners

Eyeliner being the essential part of makeup, we do have some parting advice to give on eyeliners and eye makeup.

#1. What type of eyeliner is easier to apply?  

If you’re looking for an easy way to apply eyeliner, then the eyeliner pencil is your best friend. The wooden holder is easy to grip, and allows you to apply the eyeliner with a steady hand. If you still want to use a liquid eyeliner, the felt-tip one is great for beginners.

#2. What do you use for a winged eyeliner look?

The winged eyeliner look and the cat eye look need a precise and dark eyeliner formula. Besides liquid eyeliners, you can also try gel eyeliners for the winged eye look.

#3. What is the best non smudge eyeliner?

Most popular makeup brands like Maybelline, NYX, and Colorbar have non smudge eyeliner options in gel eyeliner, liquid eyeliner, and pencil options. However, we’d pick gel, and liquid eyeliners over the pencil variety for our selection of non-smudge eyeliners.

Of course, buying the right eyeliner is just half the battle one. Applying it the right way takes a lot of practice, especially liquid eyeliners. Once you get that right, here are some eyeliner trends you can try.
