Whether it’s because of the weather, or you have oily eyelids, finding the a liquid eyeliner that lasts is really tough.
I’ve personally been on the hunt for the best long lasting liquid eyeliners for awhile now – both for personal and professional use, and I can finally give my Top 3 best that I think will suit any woman and her lifestyle.
I’ve tested these eyeliners on several of my makeup clients (even brides) as well as out myself, and these really are the best long lasting liquid eyeliners on the market right now – and I would love to hear your thoughts too!
Read on if you’d like to see my picks…
- Make Up For Ever Aqua Black. Sure, this is technically a waterproof cream eyeshadow, but you can use as eyeliner, because its staying power is fantastic. They are seriously not kidding with “waterproof”, this will stay on a very long time. I remember my first time using it in makeup school (I went to Make Up For Ever Academy) and I was shocked at the staying power. Apply with a thin eyeliner brush and you’re good to go. It’s a fave of mine to use on makeup clients as the color is so intense, it looks great in photographs.
- MAC Liquidlast. Remember when I first mentioned this product? It was one of my first posts on this blog! This is the hardest liquid eyeliner to apply, because the tip is not steady and the products is quite thick and goopy; so I’d recommend using a separate eyeliner brush. But, when you do finally get the eyeliner on – this will stay on for DAYS if you want it to (you shouldn’t though:). I had so much trouble removing this (in the end only Vaseline worked) so if there’s one eyeliner that will last through… well, anything, this is it. Swimming, the oiliest of lids, crying, sweating… you name it. (I once read a review and someone said that it’s like super glue, I agree).
- Stila Stay All Day Waterproof Liquid Eye Liner. Probably not as “intense” (color-wise), as the ones I suggested above, especially as they come in several beautiful colors, but this would be a great everyday, simple liquid eyeliner. I personally use this one if I am going for liquid eyeliner that day. It looks so simple and unassuming, but the lasting power on this one is absolutely phenomenal.
