Shop Liquid & Pencil Eyeliners
This type of eyeliner is one of the most common in the market. Usually available in a variety of colors, this is typically a liquid liner equipped with a soft brush tip—much like a calligraphy brush! These usually come in either tubes with the brush attached to the handle, or in a soft-tipped pen format. Great for drawing thin, razor-sharp lines and detailing, this applicator delivers glamorous results that require a bit of practice and a steady hand. Treat this applicator much like a wet paint brush. Lighter strokes deliver thin lines, while pressing down as you apply gives you bold, thick lines that may be perfect for a dramatic cat eye.
Felt Tip Type
Also known as a liquid eyeliner pen, or a pen liner, this type of liquid liner has a much stiffer applicator. Felt tip liquid eyeliner pens are usually the liner of choice for both beginners and makeup artists for its precise yet forgiving application by giving you more control. Unlike the brush type, creating bold thick lines is more about outlining and filling in your desired shape or holding the liner flat against your eyelid. Its sharp tip is great for details and geometric liner looks. Felt-tip liners are also usually the fastest to dry, making this a great buy for on the go application.
Roller Type (Aka Pizza Cutter Eyeliner)
This last type of liquid eyeliner may seem like the scariest to use, but many beginners swear by its unique pizza-cutter shape for creating straight lines in a flash. Coming in many colors, this liquid eyeliner usually sports a thin wheel hinged on the applicator handle, which you then lightly glide over your eyelid. While this type of liquid eyeliner does have a learning curve due to its one-of-a-kind shape, it has also become a full proof favorite among beginners and veterans alike. Pick up this type if you want instant, wispy lines.
