Best Drugstore Eyeliners for a Flawlesss Look
What girl can resist a little bit of eyeliner? A feline flick of eyeliner is the perfect way to make the eyes pop and the eye lashes appear longer, plus it does make you feel a little bit more glamorous. For day wear, keep it soft with a nude lipstick, and for the evening, go for Old Hollywood glamour with some bold red lipstick.
You don't have to spend a fortune on premium eyeliners to get the best effect. There are plenty of great drugstore eyeliners that create an effect that is just as dramatic, but are much kinder on the pocketbook. Take a look at some of the best liquid, pencil and colored eyeliners your favorite drugstores have to offer.
Liquid eyeliner is the best kind of liner to choose if you want to create dramatic feline flicks and a really clean, super dark black line. Improve your chances of getting a really sharp line by resting your elbow on a sturdy surface, and use an eye primer before applying.
Pencil eyeliner is one to choose for an everyday look as it creates a much more subtle effect. It can also be smudged to create a softer line that makes the eyes pop and sparkle. You don't need to buy an expensive brush or applicator to do this, just a slightly damp cotton bud will do the trick.
Colored eyeliners are really great for accentuating the color of your eyes – for example purple works really well with green eyes, and browns and greens work really well for blue eyes. You can also coordinate your eyeliner to your outfit by picking out colors in your ensemble and matching it to your eye shade. Matte shades are great for daytime while metallic tones with a bit of sparkle are perfect for the evening.
