Cat Eye Tip #2: Try Different Types of Eyeliner
There isn’t a single holy grail eyeliner that’s best for a winged look—you have options. And the eyeliner you choose to create your wing can make all the difference in how your cat eye eyeliner turns out. Below, we share when it's best to use a pencil, liquid, and gel eyeliner.
Pencil eyeliner: Your first foray into eyeliner was likely with a pencil—and there’s good reason for that: Pencils are easy to use! So, if you’re a total beginner, reaching for a pencil like the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro-Last Waterproof Pencil Eyeliner may be a good idea. A pencil can also be a prime pick if you’re interested in drawing a less severe line, as you won’t be able to form quite as sharp of a wing with its blunt tip.
Liquid eyeliner: Let’s be honest, liquid eyeliner takes talent to apply. But learning how can be well worth it, especially if you’re a fan of winged eyeliner. Liquid eyeliners are ideal for creating ultra-precise lines—as long as you have a steady hand. If that sounds like you, try the L’Oréal Paris Matte Signature Liquid Dip Eyeliner, Waterproof.
Gel eyeliner: Want to achieve an effect that’s similar to liquid eyeliner—without struggling to apply it? Sounds like you might be interested in gel eyeliner. Dip a tiny brush into a pot of gel liner and you can get super skinny, clean lines without putting in excessive effort. For a glossy, lacquered look, use the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Lacquer Liner 24H, which comes with a flat brush to make application extra easy.
