IMAXtree I’ve made no secret of my love of all things eyeliner. While I’ve shared my favorite eyeliners over and over, I thought it was time to see what other people thought! I asked a few professional makeup artists for their faves, here are their picks!
“For a graphic look or classic cat eye I prefer to use a liquid liner as the fine tip applicator allows for precise application. I love ZuZu Luxe Liquid Liners(5) as they are long lasting and water resistant.” – Gabriel DeSantino is the founder of Gabriel Cosmetics
“When I have a client who is attending an important event or if I have a bride, I usually use a gel liner. Make sure to apply it as close to the upper lashes as possible. It’s long-wearing and very precise. It’s a great option when doing a cat-eye as well. This is not really blendable. I like Bobbi Brown’s Long Wear Gel Eyeliner(11).” – Liz Fuller
“I love using white eyeliner along the waterline to open eyes, metallic pencils like ZuZu Luxe 24 Karat(12) can be applied to the inner corner of your eyes to add instant luminosity, apply to your waterline to create the illusion of bigger eyes or use under the arch of your brow for instant highlighting effect.” – Gabriel DeSantino is the founder of Gabriel Cosmetics
“Stila makes a great gel eye liner (Stila Smudge Pot, 13), with the right precision brush, close-up mirror & steady hand, you can make a great line.” – Sarah Salice
