These Eyeliners Make Tightlining Your Eyes a Breeze

You've probably heard a thing or two about tightlining, the makeup technique that sounds like a daring circus act but actually creates the illusion of darker, fuller lashes. While lining the inner rims of your eyes, a.k.a., the waterline, might sound tricky, using the right tools is the key to success. You don’t want to use just any eyeliner pen or pencil — a liner that suits a cat-eye, for example, might not be best for tightlining. Instead, you’re going to want to use a product with a rounded tip and a formula that glides on easily and then stays put. Ahead, find five of our favorites.
